One powerful new feature found in Data Rescue for Windows is BootWell. Your PC’s main hard drive (sometimes referred to as the Main HD or Boot Drive) is where all of your computer files are stored. When there is a problem with this hard drive it can be very difficult, frustrating and time-consuming to get those files back. BootWell is an all-new feature that makes the recovery of your main hard drive painless, fast, and easy.
Data Rescue Features and Highlights
The Quick Scan is the fastest method that detects existing directory structures even if your hard drive does not mount. This scan will detect files with their original folder hierarchies and file names. It is recommended to try this scan method first if your volume is detected on the hard drive. A Quick Scan can only be used on a volume. If you have selected the hard drive to be scanned, the Quick Scan will attempt to search for the first available volume on the hard drive, then rebuild the directory structure for that volume.
Deleted Files Scan
Deleted Files Scan utilizes the unused free of a volume for any files based on file patterns. By scanning only the free space it allows the Deleted Files Scan to specifically detect any files that were deleted. Once files are deleted through the Operating System, there is no more reference to their original directory structure, filename, or date created/modified. It will not be able to detect the original information of that file in the directory structure. Instead, Data Rescue® 4 will rebuild any files that it detects based on its file patterns. The results of the Deleted Files Scan will be provided with generic filenames and organized by category in the Reconstructed Files folder.
The Deep Scan is a comprehensive data recovery scan method that provides the most results possible. The Deep Scan is a two-part scan method: 1. Detects existing directory structures on the hard drive. 2. Scan the whole hard drive for any file patterns to rebuild the raw data of any recognized files.
The purpose of the Data Rescue’s cloning function is to copy a hard drive or volume to another hard drive or volume, so that the copy may be scanned, reducing the wear-and-tear on the original hard drive. This will free the hard drive from use while preserving the data that was on it for later scanning. Cloning is normally not required in order to scan and recover files with Data Rescue for PC. The goal is to transfer all the data from the source to the destination, making a perfect one-to-one copy where it is possible.
It has extensive support for RAID drives. If your RAID appears in the source list, you can scan and clone it as a normal drive. However, if the RAID has become misconfigured, or each individual member appears as its own drive, It has the ability to create a virtual RAID to simulate the hardware RAID.
BootWell allows you to create a special secondary startup drive that can be used to recover files from your main startup hard drive. While being booted into BootWell it allows you to unmount your internal hard drive and get into a booted environment so you can recover files from your main startup hard drive and avoid the added steps of creating your own bootable copy of Data Rescue.
