Overview

The software enables fast and easy access to blocked data. Supporting a great variety of operating systems, UFS Explorer Standard Access allows opening an inaccessible file from Apple macOS, Linux and FreeBSD working on a PC concurrently with the Windows operating system. The software supports various file systems of Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux, FreeBSD and Unix and helps to get access to inaccessible data located on an external storage formatted with any of the supported file systems. This program provides direct access to files on virtual disks of virtual machines and any copies allowing users to avoid starting and configuration of a virtual machine. Additionally, with RAID Access Plugin – RAID Builder access to data on any complex RAID system built with the plug in is possible.

The software is adjusted to work with file systems on disk images, virtual disks, RAID storages, etc. without the need for prior scanning.

Working as a "guide" from one file system to another, UFS Explorer Standard Access in no way affects information on the storage. The software operates in a read-only mode therefore ensures safety of your data. UFS Explorer Standard Access is helpful for cases when files are not deleted and a file system is not corrupted.

Choose the device

After launching the program, you will see the navigation tree on the left side of the tab where all detected storages will be shown, as well as partitions, disk images and complex storages (RAID). You can either choose the needed storage from this top-level structure or use the Open button. In case when you don’t see the needed storage, press the Refresh storages button to reset the tree of the attached storages.

Scan the storage

The application will show all available files in the Explorer mode. It's strongly recommended to save the scan result project for further work.

Save recovered files

The final step is evaluating the results. The simple interface allows users to browse and copy files just like in an original file system, making the procedure easy and fast. Users can preview the files before saving to make sure that the results are satisfying their needs.

NEVER save the recovered files to the storage they were recovered from. The file data (contents) for recovery is still read from the source drive; this means the software may overwrite file contents making the access impossible. Use another storage to save the recovered data.
