Data recovery for most cases

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

Fast file system state evaluation

Assessing general file system condition by pre-start basic file system diagnostics in order to determine data recovery direction.

Recovery from replaced file systems

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

Embedded RAID Builder

Building, saving and restoring RAID configurations of any complexity with embedded RAID Builder tool.

Optimal for NAS recovery

Detecting RAID metadata used in most popular NAS and assisting in RAID reconstruction.

Usability extensions

Extensive software tool set with optional external modules (plugins).


UFS Explorer RAID Recovery (Standard Recovery for RAID) as an extension to UFS Explorer Standard Recovery (Classic) software expands capabilities for reconstruction of complex RAID-systems and recovery of lost and deleted data from these systems.

In addition to the set of functions contained in UFS Explorer Standard Recovery this software includes embedded RAID-Builder tool which organizes smooth operations on RAID-storages of any level. UFS Explorer RAID Recovery allows users to build, edit and save virtual RAID configuration. Advanced software techniques enable building RAID-system not only from a set of physical disks but also from disk images. Moreover, the program includes VIM-Import tool allowing users to import Runtime Software virtual image files (.vim) for further operations. Increased software convenience provides effortless editing of RAID configurations. UFS Explorer RAID Recovery enables determining and setting the following RAID-parameters: start sector, drive order, block size etc. and modifying created configuration, if necessary. In addition, the software includes hexadecimal viewer for brief data analysis on partitions and disks essential for creating correct RAID configuration. You can save created RAID configuration as a file to any selected destination and later download it for further operations. The software manages automatic load of certain standard RAID configuration types.

Besides complex RAID-systems, UFS Explorer RAID Recovery is applicable to other storages. Additionally, you can recover lost files from your PC, USB flash drives, memory cards of your photo/video camera, external hard drives, virtual machines or disk image files. The software ensures safety of your data by working in safe read-only mode. This program doesn't require any prior technical skills and thus is perfect for both home and professional RAID reconstruction and data recovery tasks.

Key features

Immediate data access for consistent file systems

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

Support of disk images and virtual disks

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

Embedded RAID recovery

UFS Explorer RAID Recovery supports virtual reconstruction of RAID systems after controller or RAID metadata failure. The software virtually builds RAID and reads its files and folders as if it was a real 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.

Perfect for NAS recovery

Embedded RAID Builder is an ideal tool for common NAS recovery. UFS Explorer recognizes software RAID metadata on NAS drives and assists in virtual RAID reconstruction automatically specifying drives order, RAID level, stripe size etc. The software does not require a separate license for RAID module and thus allows evaluating entire data recovery process using a trial software copy. The most popular devices among supported NAS models are Buffalo Technology (TeraStation, LinkStation), Iomega, Synology, LaCie, Intel etc.

Comprehensive files recovery

A set of tools included in the software provides solutions for most common data loss cases. Depending on certain situation the software either simply reads or conducts detailed analysis of file system metadata to find lost files. Even if the metadata is lost permanently, the software can predict file allocation basing on the file system specifics, other files allocations and file content analysis to produce the best possible data recovery result.

Recovery after file system format

UFS Explorer RAID Recovery allows users to analyze the storage for previous file system formats and recover the necessary file system type. In case of file system damage the software detects all possible file systems for you to decide which one to recover.
