FileRescue FAT is an application whose main purpose it to help its users to retrieve their accidentally deleted or damaged files from various formatted or corrupt devices, such as hard disks, camera cards, USB drives, ZIP disks, floppy disks and other removable devices with the FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, and NTFS5 file system.
The program comes in a clean and straightforward interface that looks like Windows Explorer, suitable for any type of users, including beginners. The step-by-step wizard offers assistance throughout the entire recovering process.
After it detects your devices, you can select the partition to scan for missing items from the list of available drives, and then proceed with the retrieving task.
There are two stages of the scan, fast (searches the files system) and deep (searches the disk sector by sector for all supported files). The second method might take a considerable amount of time, depending on the size of the drive, but during our tests the utility had an overall good speed at finding the missing files.
FileRescue FAT lets you recover files that have been accidentally deleted, as well as lost due to virus attacks or faulty software.
It offers support for a wide range of audio, video, image, archive and other file formats. These include AIF, MP3, WAV, AVI, MPG, GIF, BMP, PNG, RAR and ZIP.
Once the file analysis is done, the program displays all identified files and folders. However, you should keep in mind that it detects not only the deleted files, but also any existing ones, showing both types by default. This list can be filtered to show only removed items. You can look up files by name, size, date and attributes using a search function.
Taking all things into consideration, FileRescue FAT proves to be a reliable application that lets you recover a wide range of audio, video, images and archive file formats from USB drives, camera cards, hard disks, and many other devices.
