UFS Explorer products for data recovery and access

Created by a team of experienced specialists in the field of logical data recovery, UFS Explorer is aimed at providing both technical specialists and home users with powerful and at the same time easy-to-use software tools for data access and do-it-yourself recovery of lost or deleted files. Thanks to a combination of sophisticated software mechanisms and a wide variety of advanced functions, these programs allow retrieving valuable information from different storage media with maximum efficiency. The software is available in five editions so that each user could have an opportunity to choose an optimal solution for their own needs and requirements. Find out the difference among the editions.

UFS Explorer Professional Recovery
icon Windows icon macOs icon Linux

A comprehensive solution for technical specialists and data recovery experts. The software offers a complex professional-oriented interface with a set of advanced tools suitable for managing even the most challenging data recovery tasks. The application allows working with virtual machines and encrypted storages, recovering data from RAID of any level as well as performing low-level consistency analysis and raw data editing. Unlike other solutions, this full-featured software enables specialists to recover lost files after severe logical damage, from rare file systems or complex storages, such as NAS, SAN or file servers, and storage devices implementing specific technologies, like Windows dynamic disks and Storage Spaces, Apple Core Storage, LVM thin provisioning, etc. Furthermore, the program is capable of restoring data from storage media containing damaged sectors through processing defective areas with the help of bad sector maps produced dynamically or by third-party solutions (DeepSpar DDI and ACE Lab PC-3000). In addition, thanks to the automatic sector mutation feature, this utility makes it possible to open SCSI and SAS drives with non-standard sector sizes without any specialized hardware.

Ideal for handling complex data loss cases.
UFS Explorer RAID Recovery

An ideal solution for recovery of data from RAID-based storages. This application efficiently restores data lost or deleted from common storage media and is enhanced with mechanisms for RAID reconstruction and data recovery. The software allows working with complex storage systems of different levels, including standard, nested and custom RAID configurations, as well as assembling RAID from disk images or virtual disks. With UFS Explorer RAID Recovery, you can easily define or edit a RAID configuration, build RAID in a virtual mode to recover files stored on it or save it for further use. RAID with damaged sectors can be adaptively reconstructed using parity/copy of data or disk images with the imitation of bad sectors with the help of bad sector maps. Moreover, the support of Windows dynamic disks, MS Storage Spaces, MDADM, Apple Software RAID, etc. and other specific storage technologies is presented in the program.

Suitable for both standard data loss cases and RAID-specific tasks.
UFS Explorer Network RAID
icon Windows icon macOs icon Linux

An advantageous software solution for data recovery from RAID. UFS Explorer Network RAID equally efficiently recovers data from both complex storages, like RAID and RAID-based NAS, and common storage media, including hard drives, USB flash drives, memory cards, virtual machines and disk images. With a special option of distributed data recovery over a local area network, the software allows performing data recovery from RAID or any stand-alone storage device connected to another remote computer or even several computers running different operating systems. Spanned volumes and RAID can be automatically assembled by the software or defined manually using a flexible RAID builder with an embedded script handler.

Perfect for distributed data recovery from RAID over LAN.
UFS Explorer Standard Recovery
icon Windows icon macOs icon Linux

A universal solution for most common data loss cases. This multi-purpose tool allows recovering files lost from Windows, macOS and Linux after accidental file deletion, storage formatting, virus attacks, OS failures or software crashes. The application is adjusted to work with various storages, such as hard drives, USB sticks, memory cards, disk images, virtual disks, etc. with equal efficiency and automatically assembles spanned volumes, like mdadm, LVM, Apple or Windows dynamic disks. The program features a user-friendly interface with handy prompts and provides the possibility to preview the content of found files, including images or PDF-documents.

Efficient in covering most common data loss cases.
UFS Explorer Standard Access
icon Windows

An optimal solution for safe and easy data access. The software provides instant access to any file located on an incompatible file system of a PC or an external storage. This program is adjusted to work in the environment of virtual machines giving easy access to files inside the virtual machine or its backup copy without the need to configure or run the virtual storage itself. The program is capable of handling multi-level virtual storages as well: open a virtual disk found inside of another virtual disk and access its data without any additional steps.

Perfect for cases when access to non-damaged data is difficult or impossible.
