KEY FEATURES

Perfect for data recovery from NAS
Perfect for data recovery from NAS

UFS Explorer Network RAID supports popular NAS of such vendors as Buffalo Technology (TeraStation, LinkStation), Synology, QNAP, etc. The software automatically detects RAID metadata on NAS drives allowing users to scan the storage and recover data that was lost or deleted from a network-attached storage.

Embedded RAID reconstruction tool

The software includes RAID Builder – an instrument for assembling storages that are based on the RAID technology. The tool allows reconstructing standard RAID levels (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6), JBOD, nested levels (RAID 50 and RAID 60), simple and stripe ZFS volumes as well as custom RAID configurations. The software works with virtual environment as efficiently as with hardware; therefore, assembly of RAID storages from a set of virtual disks and disk image files is also possible.

Working with RAID over LAN
Working with RAID over LAN

The software features an option of distributed data recovery over a Local Area Network for cases when the RAID components cannot be connected to a PC at once. UFS Explorer Network RAID also enables RAID assembly on one host via a Local Area Network making the procedure of data recovery from these storages fast and smooth.

Cross-platform drive sharing
Cross-platform drive sharing

The option of “sharing” drives of a RAID system allows providing access over LAN to the RAID managed by a different operating system. Users can recover data from a “shared” drive using two or more computers running on different operating systems simultaneously. The option of drive sharing also allows assembling RAID from a bigger number of drives.

Convenient scanning procedure
Convenient scanning procedure

The software offers several scanning options for quick shallow scanning, longer profound search for lost data and scanning by known content using the IntelliRAW technology. For more convenience, the scanning procedure can be paused for checking the intermediate result while the scan results can be saved for further work with them.

Helpful additional options
Helpful additional options

UFS Explorer Network RAID is enhanced with helpful options of previewing the found files of most common formats, like images or documents (including PDF), and sorting them by date, size and name. With the IntelliRAW technology enabled, the software provides the found files in separate file format-specific folders for more convenience.

Fits all types of storages
Fits all types of storages

Besides RAID, the software performs data recovery from other common types of storage media, including internal and external hard drives and USB flash drives, virtual disks and disk images. You can apply this full-featured program to any other device if it happens to to come up against the data loss problem.
