Recover files, perform disk diagnostics and permanently delete files from drives in an easy way, thanks to this intuitive application.
Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional is an advanced application specialized in recovering lost or deleted files from hard drives, optical drives or removable storage devices. In addition, the program can recover formatted, lost or damaged drives.
The software makes use of a built-in wizard that is especially useful for newbies, as they are offered guidance throughout the configuration process.
Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional offers you the possibility to select the medium that best suits your data loss problem, that is, the hard disk (whether internal or external storage devices), memory device (for example SD, CF, MMC connected via USB or Firewire), optical media (for example, CD, DVD), multimedia/mobile devices (digital camera, MP3 player, smartphone) or RAID system.
If you choose to recover data from hard drives, you can select the volume you want to scan.
In addition, you can choose the recovery scenario from several preset options, such as exploring a valid volume in an Explorer-like interface (a scanning process is not required), searching for accidentally deleted files, recovering data from a formatted volume (the process can be taken a time for the tool to scan each block of a volume in detail), diagnose disk problems related to defective blocks, as well as work with a practical set of tools used for image and disk manipulation.
For each of the scenarios mentioned above, the application allows you to select the desired partitions, namely FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, HFS / HFS +, EXT2, EXT3, and ISO9660.
Operations and results scanning
A useful step included in the recovery process allows you to review the configuration made so far and change one of the options again or continue with the operation.
You can pause the scan task and examine the collection of restored files using the Explorer interface. You can view thumbnails and additional details about each item, such as name, type, size, modification date, ID and file system, check records for additional information, and select the files you want to save to disk.
Email recovery mode
Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional helps you retrieve email data, view information about the subject, the sender, the date and other details, and print or save the information. It provides support for the following software: Outlook Express, Outlook, Eudora, Mozilla, Becky! Internet Mail and Windows Live Mail.
Get information about your disk and create VHD files
Leaving aside its powerful recovery functions, the utility helps you see detailed information about each disk, such as volume, file system, capacity, and free space, and to create VHD files with fixed or dynamic size. Other additional tools include the ability to generate reports that can be printed or exported to plain text file format and verify the properties of the selected disk (for example, name, identifier, disk type, partition type, size, file size block, block count).
Various configuration settings to play
Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional comes with a set of dedicated parameters designed specifically to help you apply filters by file extensions, that is, image (for example, JPG, MPO, PCX), video (for example, MP4, M2TS), audio (for example, WAV, MID), application (for example, EXE, DOC, XLS, PUB), Office (for example, DOC, XLS, PPT) or text files (HTM). In addition, you can manually select the desired file types.
Other notable features that are worth mentioning allow you to limit the scanning process to a certain disk range to speed up the process and reduce the amount of files detected on very large disks, skip the blocks used by the file system for a given volume, enable the automatic file name change option, ignore all errors during scanning and choose between different erase modes (write zeros, random numbers).
A powerful and full-featured recovery application
All in all, Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional offers an easy-to-use approach and an advanced feature package to help you recover deleted files. Newbies can follow the approach step by step and easily access lost data, while advanced users can configure the process in detail.
