Easy to use: You can recover data yourself as long as you are reasonably familiar with computers. iRecover is ideal for the entry-level computer user; all you have to do is select a disk and a recovery mode.
More technically minded users can benefit from a wide range of configuration options. You can override file system type and parameters, and control disk access parameters (useful when dealing with disks containing bad sectors).
Complete: iRecover offers support for all major file systems: FAT, FAT32, NTFS (all versions) and Linux Ext2/3/4. iRecover is a one-stop solution for undelete, unformat, partition, RAID and image recovery. Both Windows 200X/XP/Vista/Win7 basic and dynamic disks are supported.
iRecover offers a powerful RAID 0 and RAID 5 recovery module that will automatically detect RAID parameters such as stripe size and disk rotation. Support for NAS systems is also included. iRecover can access disks from a failed NAS and recover the data, much like the way you would recover data from RAID disks.
iRecover allows you to create a RAW image file of a volume, a disk or an entire (reconstructed) RAID array and recover data from the image file.
Powerful: With iRecover, nothing is assumed (the 'zero assumption principle'); it never relies on file system structures on the (damaged) disk and figures everything out by itself. iRecover will automatically detect the file system type and file system parameters, such as cluster-size. It will even do so if vital file system structures such as the boot sector and partition table are lost. It will recover data even if other file recovery software does not!
iRecover allows you to recover data from broken RAID 0 and RAID 5 arrays (hardware and software): unlike other RAID-capable recovery software you will not have to enter RAID parameters such as stripe size and disk rotation order, iRecover will automatically try to detect these parameters. RAID 5 arrays can even be processed if one member is missing!
Volumes and arrays rapidly grow larger and larger. We have tested iRecover on arrays containing up to 5.000.000 files. (for data recovery software the number of files detected is a limiting factor, file and volume sizes are not)
Safe: iRecover only reads the problem disk! While scavenging the disk for file system structures iRecover constantly monitors the disk's physical condition (if the disk is S.M.A.R.T. capable).
If any S.M.A.R.T. attributes exceed critical levels iRecover will warn you and halt operation until it's safe to continue. For example, one of the attributes that can be monitored through S.M.A.R.T. is a disk's temperature. If the disk gets too hot iRecover will pause to allow the disk to cool down and then continue.
Fast: As disks grow larger, data-recoveries tend to take more time as more data is detected and needs to be analyzed. iRecover now includes a smart Quick-scan for NTFS drives (automatically invoked if applicable). The Quick scan dramatically improves scan speeds on NTFS formatted volumes!
Use the demo to determine if the files can be recovered. You can analyze disks and volumes but files can not be recovered.
