UFS Explorer Standard Recovery is a universal data recovery solution for most widespread cases of data loss. The software offers direct access to non-damaged file systems of Windows, Linux and macOS, allows reconstructing corrupted ones and easily retrieves lost and deleted data from various storages, including internal and portable hard disks, USB flash drives, memory cards, virtual machines and disk images. Among technologies supported by the program are Windows Dynamic Disks, Apple Software RAID, Linux LVM, VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, QEMU, XEN, etc. Thanks to the advanced scanning techniques, the utility is able to thoroughly examine the storage for lost and deleted files and recovers them with maximum efficiency. Still, operating in a safe read-only mode, the program doesn’t make any modifications to the affected digital medium. Moreover, the application enables the user to specify parameters as to storage reading and create a disk image with the possibility to define read timeout, block size, etc. as well as rules for the omission of damaged sectors.
UFS Explorer Standard Recovery is wrapped in a user-friendly interface with clear guidance for each step of data recovery. Furthermore, a range of helpful options and tools will make it easy to conduct any complex operation.

When to use UFS Explorer Standard Recovery
The utility effectively works with various linear storage devices formatted in Windows, Linux and macOS, 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 Standard 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.
UFS Explorer Standard Recovery is capable of recovering data lost from an undetected partition. The program includes means for finding lost partitions or defining them manually before scanning the storage for lost and deleted files.
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 and saves a map of bad blocks during the imaging process.
