Vast range of supported storage technologies
Vast range of supported storage technologies Vast range of supported storage technologies

The program is capable of dealing with a broad set of storage units, inclunding ones implementing the latest technologies, like Windows Dynamic Disks and Storage Spaces, Apple Software RAID and Fusion Drive, Linux mdadm, LVM with Thin Provisioning, Btrfs-RAID, ZFS RAID-Z, Drobo BeyondRAID, Synology Hybrid RAID and other configurations.

Work with a broad spectrum of file systems
Work with a broad spectrum of file systems Work with a broad spectrum of file systems

The application comprises effective techniques that allow it to open the available content and recover the lost or deleted data from various file systems of Windows (FAT/FAT32/exFAT, NTFS and ReFS/ReFS3), macOS (HFS+, APFS), Linux (Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, SGI XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, Sun ZFS, Btrfs, F2FS), BSD/Solaris (ZFS) and VMware (VMFS, VMFS6). Furthermore, the utility provides access to volumes with the legacy Apple HFS file system, HPFS of IBM/Microsoft, Novell NetWare (NWFS) and Novell Storage Services (NWFS, NSS, NSS 64) file systems.

Data recovery from RAID of various setups
Data recovery from RAID of various setups Data recovery from RAID of various setups

Enhanced with a comprehensive toolset for work with RAID, Recovery Explorer Professional is an optimal choice for the tasks of data recovery from RAID and RAID-based storage devices. Supporting various levels of RAID, including standard RAID patterns (like JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1E, RAID 3, RAID 4, RAID 5 and RAID 6), nested levels (RAID 10, RAID 50, RAID 60, RAID 50E) and custom RAID configurations, the software can detect the metadata on drives for the automatic RAID reconstruction and allows assembling RAID manually in a virtual mode.

4/9
Immediate decryption of encrypted storages
Immediate decryption of encrypted storages Immediate decryption of encrypted storages

Recovery Explorer Professional contains mechanisms that allow it to decipher encrypted disk volumes without running the operating system or specialized software (on the condition that the encryption key is known). The program supports many encryption technologies , including BitLocker, LUKS (1, 2), TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt, FileVault 2, APFS encryption and eCryptFS.

5/9
Support of virtual machines
Support of virtual machines Support of virtual machines

Along with “real” storage devices, the software is able to process virtual disks of different virtual machines, among which is VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, QEMU, XEN and others. Moreover, a virtual disk nested on another physical or even virtual storage can be extracted and opened directly in the program for further operations as if it was an ordinary physical drive.

Helpful hexadecimal viewer and editor
Helpful hexadecimal viewer and editor Helpful hexadecimal viewer and editor

Recovery Explorer Professional presents a special assembly of tools for maximally convenient analysis of the raw data of storages, partitions, files or their fragments and correction of the logical errors. With their help one can easily trace the allocation of data through reverse address translation, compare the content of different storages, perform the parallel search of hexadecimal patterns, calculate parity, combine disk image chunks and perform numerous other manipulations.

7/9
Advanced procedure for disk reading
Advanced procedure for disk reading Advanced procedure for disk reading

The software allows selecting the mode for access to the storage device and defining a timeout that will be used in case its reading won’t succeed due to an I/O error. What is more, an “on-demand” imaging option makes it possible to save the accessed data to a sparse image file, avoiding excessive pressure on the storage caused by multiple read requests to the same location. Also, with an embedded S.M.A.R.T. monitor, it is much easier to keep an eye on the “health” condition of questionable drives.

8/9
Adjustable scanning
Adjustable scanning Adjustable scanning

The program offers several scanning options: a quick scan for chosen file system types, a longer profound search for lost data by known content with the possibility to define custom IntelliRAW rules, scanning of the space occupied by the file system or just the “free space” areas. The scanning procedure can be paused anytime while its results can be saved for further references after the software restart.

The software is complemented with a variety of auxiliary possibilities, like creating a basic disk image of a storage, previewing files of most common formats, including images and documents, sorting them by different criteria, performing a quick search for files/folders or an advanced one with masks for the name, size and last modification date.
