Using this software to recover files and folders is easy as 1-2-3. The built-in File Recovery Wizard is fully guided, taking you through the entire recovery process one step after another. This software made the recovery process safe and error-proof, enabling anyone to use Partition Recovery software as their first data recovery tool ever.
The tool operates in strictly enforced read-only mode to ensure the ultimate safety of information stored on the damaged disk. Users of this software will feel immediately at home with its Explorer-like user interface allowing them to browse through deleted information just as easily as navigating in Windows Explorer. Recovering files with Hetman Partition Recovery can be easier than deleting.
File System Analysis
Analyzing the file system is step one of the data recovery process. As files can be scattered evenly across the disk, sometimes fragmented beyond reproach, reading the file system is essential to reconstruct information about the exact physical blocks occupied by a given file. When a file is deleted, the file system does not physically wipe or erase the file from the disk. Instead, it simply marks the file’s record in the file system as “deleted”, releasing its disk space for use by other files.
In its Quick Scan mode, this software performs a scan of the file system in order to locate any files marked as deleted. This approach will not work for formatted disks or badly damaged file systems, so on such disks, the tool will perform a full disk search (Comprehensive Analysis mode) instead.
Visual Pre-Recovery Preview and the HEX Editor
This software comes with two different modes to preview deleted files: visual and HEX. In visual mode, the tool will display the content of documents, pictures, spreadsheets and other supported types of files the way you would see them in Microsoft Office or picture viewer. The built-in HEX editor offers a low-level, binary-mode preview for advanced users such as system administrators and data recovery professionals.
In addition, to file content, the HEX editor displays low-level system information such as the file’s exact physical location on a disk. The HEX editor can also display information about volumes and partitions such as boot sectors and MFT records. Both visual and binary-level previews are available even in the free evaluation version of the tool. Files that can be successfully opened by the visual preview tool are guaranteed recovery.
Strictly following safety precautions is essential for a successful recovery. Every file operation, even opening a file with a viewer, may lead to a series of write operations. Windows modifies file attributes such as last access date and may perform other writes without you even noting. On a corrupted disk, this may cause severe damage to the file system.
This software implements read-only low-level access in such a way that no write operation occurs on the disk being analyzed or to information being recovered. To make the process even more secure, this software can read the entire device in a single long read operation, creating a bit-precise virtual image of the device. These virtual images can be used to recover information without further accessing the original device.
