URGENTRECOVERY Professional is a powerful, safe and easy to use software application that can help you recover lost or deleted files from all types of storage devices.
URGENTRECOVERY for Windows recovers files whether they have been deleted from the command line, from within an application, Windows Explorer, or removed from the Recycle Bin. In addition URGENTRECOVERY recovers formatted or lost drives and drives with a severe logical file system damage.
URGENTRECOVERY for Windows will scan the drive and bring up list of files which can be saved from the scanned drive. Especially for forensic application the list of recovered and reconstructed files and folders can be saved to disk as well as printed out.
To preserve the drive with the lost or deleted files, all recovered files must be saved to another storage device or another drive letter in the system. URGENTRECOVERY for Windows is a non-destructive read-only application and will not write or make changes to the drive it is recovering from.
Here are some key features of "URGENTRECOVERY Professional":
￭ Supported file systems: FAT 12/16/32 (used by hard disks, disks, Smartmedia, Compact Flash, Memory Stick and other) and NTFS (used by hard drives)
￭ Ability to scan all volumes in a local machine and build a directory tree of all lost and deleted files.
￭ Search lost and deleted files matching file name criteria
￭ Fast scanning engine allows the file list to be built in a few minutes.
￭ Easy to understand File Manager and typical Save File dialog.
￭ Very secure undeleting: program does no write operation on drive containing files to be undeleted
￭ Saving data to any windows (including network drives, removable media, etc.) drive possible
￭ Supports compressed and encrypted files (for NTFS)
￭ Report lists of recovered files (i.e. for forensic use) can be saved to disk or printed out.
￭ 486 or Pentium-class processor
￭ IDE/SCSI hard drive
￭ 64MB RAM (128 MB recommended)
￭ 5 MB of free space
￭ Second hard disk is recommended for recovery.
￭ This software is NOT able to find data on a physically damaged drive!
￭ Not every file can be undeleted: less fragmentation (common if media not full) will increase the rate of recovery because the entire data is stored at the beginning of the first cluster of a file.
￭ The probability of recovery is lower, the smaller the disk capacity relative to the file size is.
￭ When a file is deleted from a FAT32 drive in Windows 2000/XP environment, the higher order value of the starting cluster gets lost. Hence it is not possible for URGENTRECOVERY for Windows to correctly predict the starting location of the deleted entry. Therefore, it reconstructs the file by using all the possible values of the starting cluster higher order value and leaves it up to the user to find out the correct file.
