Overview

UFS Explorer Video Recovery is a multifunctional data recovery instrument geared towards work with closed-circuit television appliances and event data recorders (EDR) utilized in vehicles.

Along with a multiplicity of storage devices of different formats and complexity, the program supports a broad range of specific file systems implemented in CCTV appliances and driving recorders as well as various video and audio codecs. In addition to that, the utility is capable of processing stream data: each frame of a video stream is checked for validity, combined with the associated frames and the obtained result is placed in a universal container file which can be opened using any standard software means. In addition, the application works with practically any data carrier – starting from linear internal and external digital media to RAID systems and disk images produced by conventional disk imaging utilities and professional forensic tools, like EnCase and FTK Imager. Enhanced with a mechanism of integrity control and extended reporting possibilities, the software doesn’t modify the content of the source and can be used by forensic experts for the extraction of reliable video evidence.

Furthermore, the program incorporates decryption techniques for BitLocker, LUKS, FileVault 2 and APFS encryption, works with virtual disks of VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, QEMU, XEN, etc., allows assembling standard RAID patterns and specific RAID layouts, like Btrfs-RAID, ZFS RAID-Z, Synology SHR, and supports many other storage technologies, including Windows Dynamic Disks, Storage Spaces and deduplication, Apple Software RAID, Core Storage and Time Machine, Linux mdadm and LVM with Thin Provisioning as well. With broad functionality and unmatched specialized features, UFS Explorer Video Recovery can become an indispensable assistant in almost any data recovery task.

CCTV
Unequaled data recovery form CCTV units
The program allows achieving outstanding results of video recovery from most surveillance devices that may employ general-purpose file systems, like XFS, EXT, FAT32, or vendor-specific types, like WFS, DHFS, HIK, Mirage, Pinetron, BKFL, etc. Also, the software works with various stream and video compression formats that are usually not supported by regular data recovery utilities.
EDR
Maximum recovered output from driving recorders
The software enables highly efficient recovery of footages from numerous vehicle DVRs, including the latest models. Even in cases when the video was partially overwritten or the process of its recording was interrupted due to an accident, it is still possible to obtain an intact video file thanks to a mechanism that uses "tails" or "holes" of previously allocated files and a special video transmuxing technique.

Key features

Smart scanning procedure Smart scanning procedure
The software automatically recognizes the supported CCTV/EDR formats (file system, video stream, video/audio codecs, vendor-specific metadata, etc.) and restores the lost recordings without the need for any special configurations. No prior analysis of the data is required – all the necessary algorithms are already embedded into the program.
Extensive toolset covering almost any data loss challenge Extensive toolset covering almost any data loss challenge
The application offers an exceedingly broad functionality which mostly overlaps with the one available in the Professional edition of UFS Explorer. It contains tools for work with different storage technologies, complex RAID-based devices, encrypted volumes, virtual disks of popular virtual machines, disks with non-standard sector sizes, defective drives and enables efficient analysis of raw binary data and its convenient editing.
Support of forensic disk images Support of forensic disk images
Aside from conventional disk images, UFS Explorer Video Recovery is capable of processing ones created with professional forensic tools – EnCase Imager and FTK Disk Imager. The utility allows opening and exploring the content of a forensic disk image created for a particular drive, volume or file and makes it possible to scan it for lost data like any ordinary physical storage device.
Special technique for video transmuxing Special technique for video transmuxing
The obtained footages can be repacked by the software into the universal file format supported by most standard media players. In contrast to transcoding, no changes are made to the actual video or audio content – the original data and codecs remain fully preserved which is of critical importance for the tasks related to the retrieval of digital evidence in the context of forensics and cyber security.
Analysis of the video data Analysis of the video data
The program is able to analyze the allocation of video data on the disk and can provide a report on the location of frames the video consists of. Moreover, it allows establishing control over the content of files by calculating their checksums – a change of at least one byte can be easily spotted due to the difference of the file’s checksums in several reports.
Advanced methods of data reconstruction Advanced methods of data reconstruction
The application is able to reconstruct damaged file systems and recover lost data even in cases of serious storage corruption. When a logical issue leads to the loss of information about the allocation of fragmented files, the program is capable of restoring footages through finding and matching their segments, providing a fully functional video file as a recovery result.
Multiple scanning options Multiple scanning options
Along with the direct access to the available content, the utility offers several possibilities of the search for deleted and lost information: a scan for CCTV video data with a set of optional filters, recovery of RIFF/QTFF videos recorded EDR systems and a traditional configurable scan to recover files of all types.
Useful supplementary features Useful supplementary features
The program makes it easy to restore footages recorded on a particular date or by a certain surveillance camera. All recovered videos can be sorted by diverse criteria and previewed directly in the software. Moreover, the software allows extracting each video frame from the recording and converting them into a series of still images. Also, the obtained scan result can be effortlessly saved for further references.

The damage to a vehicle DRV in a road accident and other issues that prevent its normal functioning may lead to the corruption of the recorded videos and impossibility to play them using standard means. UFS Explorer Video Recovery is able to restore the structure of the damaged storage and reconstructs corrupted videos from their pieces with validation of each video frame.

Number 4
Work with CCTV/EDR systems in a forensically sound manner

The software operates in the read-only mode and supports various formats of disks images, including ones created with EnCase Imager and FTK Disk Imager, which prevents any possibility for it to affect the source storage or any information on it. Even when the system employs distortion or encryption of video data, the program is capable of performing the decryption and recovery without recoding or in any other way changing the initial frames.

Number 5
Create forensic reports on the recovered data

The software may come in handy for creating forensic reports as to the location and the analysis of the allocation of frames that constitute a video stream on the storage. Moreover, the program allows creating a report with the list of available files, their properties, checksums calculated for them, the information about the scanned storage, the date of the scan and the time when the report was created.

Number 6
Repackage footages into a universal delivery format

The utility makes it possible to wrap CCTV recordings of various vendor-specific formats into a universal file container supported by general-purpose media players. It is worthy of note that no conversion or recoding of the original video data is performed so that the obtained video data is guaranteed to match the data on the source disk.
