The application works in a safe read-only mode without making any modifications to the affected storage. Before the start of a recovery procedure, the software can evaluate the approximate condition of the data available on the partition. The program also provides means for automatic detection of lost partitions of the storage and tools for manual definition of partitions. Additional tools allow assessing the condition of the file system and its readability. The software offers a full-featured hexadecimal viewer allowing users to find and analyze data on the storage. Having found your files, the program allows you to easily save them to another safe location.

How to recover data with UFS Explorer Standard Recovery

Install program

To install the program, download the installation file. Make sure that your computer meets the minimum technical requirements before running the file. If installation does not start automatically, browse the Downloads folder for the program setup file, the name of which usually contains the name of the software, e.g. ufsxsci.exe. Open the file with Administrator privileges or enter the administrator password, in case you are an ordinary user of PC. Start the installation by following the prompts.

NEVER download or install the software on the storage (drive, flash drive, RAID, etc.) you have lost data from. This can result in permanent data loss leaving no chances for its recovery. In case of data loss from a system partition, it is highly recommended to shut down the system and consider using UFS Explorer Emergency Recovery CD.

Choose the storage

After launching the program, you will see the navigation tree on the left side of the tab where all detected storages will be shown together with partitions, disk images and complex storages (RAID). You can either choose the needed storage from this top-level structure or use the Open button on the upper panel. In case you don’t see the needed storage, press the Refresh button to reset the tree of the attached storages. Right-click the storage to browse through available intact files and folders. Left-click the storage and press the Start scan button to proceed to data recovery.

Scan the storage

To find lost and deleted files, the application will scan the chosen storage, which may take a while, depending on the amount of data stored and working speed. The scan settings include the option of choosing a file system or several file systems in which the lost data was created and enabling the IntelliRAW technology for data recovery by known content. When everything is set, press Start scan. For more convenience, the scanning process can be paused so that the intermediate results could be evaluated. When the scan is over, it's strongly recommended to save the scan result project for further work.

Save recovered files

The scan results include all found files and folders that can be recovered. The simple interface allows users to preview the recovered files before saving them to make sure that the results are satisfying their needs. Users can browse and save the needed recovered files just like in an original file system.

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