KEY FEATURES

Perfect for data recovery from RAID and NAS
Perfect for data recovery from RAID and NAS

UFS Explorer RAID Recovery allows working with RAID of various levels, including standard patterns (RAID 0, RAID 1E, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 7, etc.), nested levels (RAID level 10, 50, 60, 50E, etc.), as well as custom RAID configurations via RDL or Runtime VIM. The software also 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.

Support of various file systems
Support of various file systems

Besides RAID, the software performs data recovery from other common types of storage media, including internal and external hard drives, USB flash drives, memory cards, virtual disks and disk images, etc. In addition to that, UFS Explorer RAID Recovery supports recovery from a wide range of file systems – Windows (FAT/FAT32/exFAT and NTFS); macOS (HFS+, APFS); Linux (Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, ReiserFS, XFS, JFS (IBM JFS2) and BSD/ Solaris (UFS/UFS2, ZFS).

Embedded RAID reconstruction tool

UFS Explorer RAID includes RAID Builder – an instrument for assembling storages that are based on the RAID technology. The instrument allows reconstructing standard RAID levels (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6), JBOD and 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.

Defining damaged sectors programmatically
Defining damaged sectors programmatically

UFS Explorer RAID 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.

Adaptive RAID reconstruction
Adaptive RAID reconstruction

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 RAID50, RAID 60, RAID 51, RAID10, etc. A RAID storage can be also reconstructed using disk images with the imitation of bad sectors with help of bad sector maps.

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 RAID Recovery is enhanced with helpful options of previewing the found files of most common formats, including images, PDF documents and text files, 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 come up against the data loss problem.
