FileRescue Professional is a recovery application specialized in retrieving files and folders accidentally deleted from the system, items removed from the Recycle Bin, as well as files erased by virus or Trojan attacks.
The tool is able to recover data from hard drive, camera card, USB, Zip, floppy disk, or other media devices, and works with different Windows file systems, like FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, and NTFS 5.
Supported file formats
The program recovers all sorts of file formats, such as AIF, MP3, MIDI, AU, OGG, AVI, FLV, MOV, GIF, PNG, SWF, PDF, TXT, XML, RTF, ZIP, RAR, MDB, ISO, PST, DOCX, PPTX, and HTML.
Check out detailed information about each drive
You can view comprehensive details about each partition detected on the disk, such as name, volume label, serial number, file system, boot indicator, partition number, total volume space, free space, total clusters, and bytes per sector. In addition, you are allowed to create a drive image (IMG file format) which can be later loaded for being scanned.
Tests have shown that FileRescue Professional carries out a scan task quickly but this pretty much depends on the size of the disk and number of scanned items. It eats up CPU and memory so the overall performance of the computer may be affected.
The application reveals an Explorer-like panel where you can browse throughout the scanned files and folders. You are allowed to select the items that you want to save on your system, preview images, as well as access file contents using the built-in HEX viewer. In addition to the preview mode, you can check out file metadata (e.g. creation date, size, path, description).
What’s more, you can filter the results by existing files or empty folders, get drive statistics with all the existing and deleted file extensions, and search for files by name, size, date, and attributes. A full drive scan can be employed in case the quick mode fails into detecting the target files, and you can rely on this one for analyzing the entire content of your drive.
FileRescue Professional hides advanced configuration parameters under the hood for helping you specify the number of retries in case the drive is physically damaged and pause between retry attempts. What’s more, you can save the log to a file on your computer and keep a temporary folder.
All in all, FileRescue Professional comes packed with several advanced features for helping you recover deleted files, and is suitable especially for professionals.
