More than a decade in the industry

Established back in 2008, SysDev Laboratories has developed solutions utilized in numerous data recovery labs throughout the world.

The beginning
UFS Explorer (Universal File System Explorer) was first introduced in December 2004 by SysDevSoftware PE as a single utility for straightforward access to data on non-Windows file systems. Later on, the team of computer scientists, mathematicians and analysts from SysDevSoftware PE began its studies in the sphere of data recovery. The research has proved to be successful and resulted into the development of data recovery software.
From SysDevSoftware PE to SysDev Laboratories LLC
SysDevSoftware PE was reorganized and expanded which has led to the foundation of SysDev Laboratories LLC. Under the new brand the company released the improved multi-platform 3rd version of UFS Explorer represented by three major editions: UFS Explorer Standard Access, UFS Explorer Standard Recovery for common cases of logical data loss and UFS Explorer Professional Recovery for complex instances. Raise Data Recovery was also introduced as an inexpensive alternative of UFS Explorer Standard Recovery for one-time data recovery which supported only a single file system per software edition.
UFS Explorer version 4
With the 4th release the product range obtained enhanced functionality and a new edition – UFS Explorer RAID Recovery which was the extended edition of Standard Recovery software specially adapted for operations with RAID of standard levels and nested configurations.
UFS Explorer version 5
UFS Explorer of 5th version supported even more file systems, major types of full-disk encryption algorithms, performed fully automated reconstruction of RAID and logical volumes, like LVM, Apple Software RAID and Windows dynamic disks, and featured unique data recovery technologies that included complete and partial metadata analysis, fuzzy-logic for missing metadata reconstruction and IntelliRAW™ technology used to find good files even when all file system metadata was destroyed. R.saver was also released as a freeware utility for data recovery from FAT and NTFS.
CI HEX Viewer
In 2014 a professional-level instrument called CI Hex Viewer was released for the analysis and editing of raw binary data which comprised all necessary means ideal for quick, easy and secure processing of raw content of files and disks in hexadecimal mode. The company also started offering services of data recovery from protected/encrypted NAS devices of different vendors.
Recovery Explorer
In 2016 Recovery Explorer was introduced as a multi-functional software solution for both beginners and advanced home users that perfectly fits self-made data recovery in a vast variety of logical data loss cases. Raise Data Recovery was separated from the UFS Explorer product and received its own functional design, unique Wizard-based interface and flexible modular licensing policy. The company started offering services of data recovery from Enterprise Virtual Arrays.
Network Storage Recovery
In 2017 Network Storage Recovery was introduced as a range of vendor-specific applications for restoring data from NAS devices of most popular suppliers, including Buffalo, Synology, QNAP Systems and Western Digital. In contrast to general-purpose solutions, the software operates over LAN and doesn’t require the removal of disks, making the procedure easy and straightforward even for novices.
Recovery of media files and UFS Explorer version 7
In 2018 the company launched a new set of applications specialized in the recovery of media files: myPhoto Recovery for effective restoration of digital photos, myCCTV Recovery for work with CCTV security systems and myDrive Recorder Recovery for the retrieval of videos made by vehicle camcorders. At the end of the year, the renewed 7th version of UFS Explorer was released which has brought data recovery to a new level, providing the possibility to work with a broad range of modern storage technologies, an enhanced toolkit for specialists, optimized scanning mechanism and new user interface. The software range has also been expanded with a brand-new edition – UFS Explorer Network RAID.
UFS Explorer version 8
In 2020 the company released UFS Explorer version 8 with an advanced disk reading mechanism and extensive means for maximally efficient processing of storage devices that contain bad sectors. In addition, UFS Explorer Video Recovery was introduced – a professional data recovery utility enhanced with the capability to recover information from closed-circuit television appliances and event data recorders (EDR) used in vehicles.
