- A go-to solution for the majority of data loss issues
- Instant recognition and automatic reconstruction of RAID
- Smooth work with RAID of various complexities
- Support for many other "unordinary" technologies
- Creating highly adjustable disk images
- Additional means for handling faulty drives and RAID sets
UFS Explorer RAID Recovery is a must-have data recovery toolkit that should be kept at hand when dealing with RAID and various RAID storages, like NAS and DAS. Focusing particularly on complex storages, the program retrieves the files lost from them just as efficiently as it does from other electronic media, including individual disks, USB flash drives and memory cards. Along with that, the software covers a wide range of technologies and configurations that may be applied on the affected device: various file systems of Windows, Linux, and macOS; the Microsoft’s and Apple’s encryption features – BitLocker and FileVault; combined logical volumes, like Linux LVM, mdadm, Windows Dynamic Disks, Storage Spaces and Apple Fusion Drive; non-standard RAID setups – Synology Hybrid RAID, Drobo BeyondRAID, Btrfs-RAID and ZFS RAID-Z. The application may put the supported storage together using the information remaining on the drives and will also let you assemble it manually, with the help of a convenient RAID Builder unit that operates in a safe read-only mode.
Furthermore, UFS Explorer RAID Recovery offers plenty of additional functionality, which, among other things, assists in restoring stand-alone or RAID drives with characteristic signs of physical defects. The program allows specifying parameters as to reading the storage or creating its disk image, with the possibility to choose an optimal manner for skipping damaged sectors. Maps of bad blocks produced by the software itself or by compatible utilities from other vendors can also be employed in the recovery process.

When to use UFS Explorer RAID Recovery
The utility effectively works with various linear storage devices, including internal as well as external hard disk drives, USB flash drives, memory cards and many others, thus serving as an essential data recovery tool for handling most typical cases of data loss, like accidental deletion of files, storage formatting, malware attack, hardware or software malfunction, etc.
UFS Explorer RAID Recovery is an efficient solution for restoring data from RAID of different complexity, both software and hardware, and various RAID-based storages, like DAS and NAS. Moreover, the software makes it possible to perform data recovery from systems that apply specific RAID configurations, like Drobo BeyondRAID, Synology Hybrid RAID and Btrfs-RAID.
The software is enhanced with wide support of modern storage technologies employed in different environments. It allows processing composite volumes, including LVM, MS Storage Spaces, Dynamic Disks, Apple Software RAID and APFS-based Fusion Drive, etc. which significantly expands the list of target devices it can be applied to.
The application gives the possibility to recover data from storages that have damaged sectors or other hardware issues with maximum efficiency. Not only it offers highly configurable disk reading and imaging procedures but also generates a map of bad blocks during the imaging process. In addition, virtual bad blocks can be defined dynamically on disk images by recognizing a given pattern or by reading bad sectors maps created by other compatible solutions.
UFS Explorer RAID Recovery effectively deals with disk images and virtual disks created by major virtualization software, like VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, VirtualBox, QEMU, XEN, etc. and successfully copes with data recovery from such storages as though they were ordinary physical devices.
A set of tools integrated in the software allow effectively solving practically any case of logical data loss, including the most severe ones. The program will either simply read file system metadata or conduct its detailed analysis and predict the allocation of files based on the file system specifics, allocation of other files or file content analysis to produce the best possible data recovery result.
