Disk-on-disk recovery

The software opens disk image files or virtual disks from a file system already opened in UFS Explorer. With this application you can easily build RAID storing VMware ESX virtual machines (VMFS file system), open virtual disk directly from VMFS and recover data straight from virtual machine without the need to extract virtual disk first. Disk-on-Disk software feature activates a variety of low-level data access tools.
