UFS Explorer Professional Recovery is advanced data recovery software developed to serve the needs of technical specialists. The program combines low-level data analysis with sophisticated high-level data recovery tools and can be installed on Windows, Linux and macOS.
Combination of state-of-the-art algorithms and advanced multi-tool interface.
UFS Explorer Professional Recovery makes even the most complex data recovery tasks straightforwardly solvable. The application is complemented with a multitude of modern features and instruments, allowing to recover files from various devices, including those which involve complex or uncommon storage technologies.
This professional application provides effective tools for work with various storage technologies implemented in different devices, including LVM, Apple Core Storages, TimeMachine backups. The software also allows working with virtual disks produced by virtual machines of the leading virtualization software vendors, including VMware and Hyper-V. The program operates virtual disks and disk image files exactly in a way as if they were physical disks and allows accessing or recovering lost data from disk images and virtual disks.
UFS Explorer Professional Recovery works with a wide range of file systems, including those which are not supported in most data recovery utilities. The software allows recovering from Windows (FAT/FAT32/exFAT/NTFS/ReFS/ReFS2), macOS (HFS+, APFS), Linux (Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, ReiserFS, XFS, JFS), FreeBSD (UFS/UFS2), Sun Solaris (ZFS) and VMware (VMFS, VMFS6) along with providing access to files on Novell NWFS, Novell Storage Services file systems.
Along with support of a broad set of file systems applied in most common operating systems, the software works with the technology of NTFS volume deduplication (Windows Server), allowing users to search for NTFS volumes with enabled deduplication and recover data lost from the them.
UFS Explorer Professional Recovery works with standard, nested and custom RAID configurations. The application supports assembly of non-redundant RAID level 0 and JBOD, 1 and 1E mirrors, levels 3 and 4 with dedicated and 5 and 6 with distributed parity, along with nested levels 10, 50, 60, 50E, etc. Special syntax enables setting up custom RAID configurations with different data distribution algorithms.
In addition to support of various RAID-based storages, UFS Explorer Professional Recovery is capable of recovering lost data from all Drobo devices, including Drobo 5C, Drobo 5D3, Drobo 8D, Drobo 5N2, Drobo B810n, Drobo B810i and many others, which apply BeyondRAID, a highly innovative redundant storage technology.
The software works with full-disk encryption, including LUKS and FileVault 2, providing the possibility of access and recovery of files from encrypted volumes in cases when the encryption key is known. The software also supports other encryption technologies, such as APFS volumes encryption and eCryptFS.
UFS Explorer Professional Recovery supports bad sector maps created by ACE Lab software. This allows the program to automatically define damaged sectors on the storage using these bad sector maps, so that users could analyze them and get a report on files corruption in the process of copying files.
The software supports adaptive reconstruction of RAID storages with damaged sectors using parity (for RAID 5 and RAID 6) or a copy of data (for RAID 1) as well as their combinations, including RAID 50, RAID 60, RAID 51, RAID 10, etc. A RAID storage can be also reconstructed using disk images with the imitation of bad sectors with help of bad sector maps.
UFS Explorer Professional Recovery supports disk images and virtual disks produced by virtual machines of the leading virtualization software vendors, including VMware and Hyper-V. The program operates virtual disks and disk image files exactly in a way as if they were physical disks and allows accessing or recovering lost data from disk images and virtual disks.
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 a virtual disk directly from VMFS and recover data straight from the virtual machine without the need to extract the virtual disk first.
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.
