A universal solution for different kinds of storages
The program allows recovering deleted files and dealing with other data loss issues related to simple storage devices. Furthermore, equipped with a specialized mechanism for automatic reconstruction and simple manual assembly of RAID in a safe virtual mode, the software is also an optimal choice when data is to be retrieved from more complicated systems, like RAID-based computers or NAS boxes.

With Recovery Explorer RAID, it is possible to get the missing data back from personal computers, external hard disks, memory cards, thumb drives, RAID sets and other storages with various file systems of Windows (FAT/FAT32/exFAT and NTFS), macOS (HFS+, APFS) and Linux (Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, ReiserFS, XFS, JFS, IBM JFS2, UFS/UFS2). Moreover, the software provides direct access to the undamaged content of volumes, helping to solve the problem of incompatibility between the storage format and the OS.

The program can handle a wide range of RAID configurations, among which are standard levels (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1E, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6, etc.), combined patterns (RAID 10, RAID 50, RAID 60, RAID 50E, etc.), specific technologies (Btrfs-RAID, Synology SHR) and custom RAID layouts. The software detects RAID metadata on the drives and is capable of interpreting it for the automatic assembly of an intact array.
