O&O FormatRecovery Personal Edition Publisher's description
from O&O Software GmbH
O&O FormatRecovery recovers data off of reformatted partitions.
With the new O&O FormatRecovery 4, O&O offers the ultimate supplement to its already impressive line of data recovery products. Guiding users with an onscreen Assistant, O&O FormatRecovery 4 enables the recovery of deleted or formatted partitions or hard disks to their pre-deletion form. File and directory information is likewise restored.
Recovery of complete storage media
By use of a specially developed algorithm, O&O FormatRecovery 4 can search for files on formatted or deleted disks and restore them even when the data are heavily fragmented! In contrast to O&O UnErase 4 and O&O DiskRecovery 4, O&O FormatRecovery 4 can also restore files with missing directories and configuration information.
The advanced functions of the special search algorithms in O&O FormatRecovery 4 enable it to first detect and then ignore defective sectors. This means it can recover data from storage media that is damaged but still accessible. The special algorithm also supports the recovery of hidden or system files with their corresponding attributes, making possible the recovery of empty file systems in order to completely reconstruct a whole storage medium. The creation of a new system is often therefore unnecessary and through its impressive functions and operating methods, O&O FormatRecovery 4 can wholly compensate for the absence of a system back-up.
O&O FormatRecovery 4 can recover data from all Windows-supported data storage media. This includes, among others, internal and external hard disks (IDE, SATA, SCSI etc.), digital cameras, MP3-Players, USB and Memory-Sticks, memory cards, CDs, DVDs and diskettes. A data storage medium need only be recognized by Windows a data recovery to be possible. For this reason, it is not necessary to run a compatibility check in Windows to see of a certain medium is compatible. The rescued data can then be saved on any windows supported storage medium, provided it is not the medium from which the data was just recovered.
