Data recovery for most cases

Recover lost or deleted data from most operating systems, storages and file systems.

Fast evaluation of file system state

Pre-start basic file system diagnostics assesses general file system condition that helps determine data recovery direction.

Recovery from replaced file systems

Accurate detection of current and previous file systems after format and targeting recovery process at certain file system state.

Quick recovery of lost data

After detection of lost data you can simply select necessary files and folders and use 'Copy to...' tool.

Advanced all-at-once recovery

Provides for selection of necessary files and building file system tree similar to the original one on the target storage.

Functional extensions

Extend software operations with set of optional external modules (plugins).

Overview

UFS Explorer Standard Recovery software was designed with the aim to make even complex data recovery a simple procedure to be easily carried-out by both home users and professionals.

The software embraces powerful mechanisms that allow to recover accidentally deleted data and data lost due to logical file system damages after formatting hard disk, hardware malfunctions or software failures, virus attacks, power outages etc. UFS Explorer Standard Recovery all in one supports a wide range of operating and file systems - Windows (FAT and NTFS); Apple Mac OS (HFS+); Linux (Ext2, Ext3, Ext4 , Reiser, XFS, JFS (JFS2) and FreeBSD (UFS/UFS2). This program fits for recovery from different devices and supports recovery from disk images and virtual machines - you can recover lost files from your PC, USB flash drive, memory card of your photo/video camera, external hard drive as well as a virtual machine or disk image file with one and the same tool. For enhanced capabilities the software was supplemented with plug-ins for reconstruction and further recovery from complex RAID-systems as well.

In its work UFS Explorer Standard Recovery applies advanced techniques to scan the device for lost data and recover lost and deleted files. The software works in a safe read-only mode without making any modifications on the storage. Before starting recovery diagnosis features of the software allow to approximately evaluate the condition of data on the partition. For lost storage partitions the software contains means to find partitions automatically or define partitions manually. Additional software tools allow to assess the condition of the file system and define its readability. In case of any problems with the file system the software supports virtual file system reconstruction. The software includes functions of hexadecimal preview allowing to find and analyse data on the storage. After the program has found your files you can easily save your files to any destination.

User-friendly interface of UFS Explorer Standard Recovery will offer clear step-by-step guidance through sophisticated data recovery tools of the program that makes all complex operations to be conducted in just several mouse-clicks. For increased convenience the software has several variants suitable for your operating system type.

UFS Explorer Standard Recovery will make data recovery easy, safe and cost-efficient operation without any harm to your data and any stress to you.


Key features

Immediate data access for consistent file systems

The software allows to access data on all the supported file systems, including file systems stored on disk images, virtual disks, RAID storages etc. without the need of prior scan.

Support of disk images and virtual disks

The software allows to open disk images and virtual disks produced by virtual machines of leading virtualization software vendors (including VMware Player, VMware Workstation, Microsoft Virtual PC, Microsoft Hyper-V, Parallels Desktop etc.). This application operates virtual disks and disk image files exactly as if they were physical disks and allows to access or recover lost data from disk images and virtual disks.

Optional RAID recovery

With optional module - RAID Access Plugin - RAID Builder - the software supports virtual reconstruction of RAID system after failure of controller or RAID metadata. The program virtually builds RAID and reads its files and folders as if it was physical RAID storage. The software easily handles both simple RAID configurations (such as stripe set - RAID level 0, Span, Mirror - RAID level 1) and complex RAID such as RAID 5 and RAID 6. RAID-on-RAID feature allows to build RAID configurations of high complexity such as RAID 50, RAID 60 etc. Optional support of Runtime Software Virtual Image Files with RAID Access Plugin - VIM Import allows to set up custom RAID configuration with different data distribution algorithms.

Comprehensive files recovery

The set of tools implemented in the software provides solutions for most practical data loss cases. Depending on situation the software either simply reads or conducts deep analysis of file system metadata to find lost files. Even if the metadata is lost permanently, this program can guess file allocation basing on file system specifics, other files allocations and file content analysis to produce maximally successful data recovery result even in severe data loss cases.

Recovery after file system format

With Standard Recovery you can analyze the storage for previous file system formats in order to recover required file system type. In case of file system damage, the software is able to detect all possible file systems the storage was ever formatted with for you to choose the one for recovery.


Software testing and certifications
