UFS Explorer Professional Recovery is a full-featured data recovery software suite for highly complicated data recovery challenges. Being a multi-platform software package, UFS Explorer runs natively on Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, and Linux operating systems without any special emulation or drivers required.
I personally use UFS Explorer Professional Recovery, specifically on data recovery projects with Linux RAID partitions. In addition, the data recovery software integrates well with DeepSpar’s hardware solutions for data recovery including Disk Imager 4.
Both UFS Explorer and it’s only major competitor, R-Tools Technology R-Studio (Technician), are on par with each other and perform a majority of the same tasks the other one does. UFS Explorer certainly excels over R-Studio with support for four common Linux-based operating systems that R-Studio does not yet support. Those operating systems are:
Synology Hybrid RAID
Prices vary but at the time of writing this, UFS Exporer Professional Recovery sells for $629.95 (USD). In contrast, the Standalone License for R-Studio costs $80 (USD) while the Technician Package costs $899.99 (USD). Around the holidays, R-Tools Technology also sells R-Studio products 25% off, and DeepSpar sell R-Studio 50% off whenever a purchase with DeepSpar is made.
If you would like to speak with a data recovery professional before attempting a data recovery of your own, please call, e-mail, or contact IT-SD. We are more than happy to speak with you.
1) RAID-based Storage Layouts
Along with standard media like hard disks, thumb drives, and memory cards, UFS Explorer also handles a wide range of RAID-based storage layouts including:
Synology Hybrid RAID
2) Platform Support
UFS Explorer also works on all computer operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, and Linux. And since it can be used to decrypt and view files from most file systems, it can be used on an Apple computer to view NTFS file systems and on a Windows computer can be used to view AFPS and HFS+ file systems.
3) Third-Party Hardware Connectivity
In addition to its large number of supported file systems, UFS Explorer also connects via LAN with third-party hardware data recovery tools such as the DeepSpar Disk Imager. Together, with additional help from an embedded imaging function and various settings for disk reading and damaged block omission, they create a full or partial image of a disk. A map with defective areas can be generated during imaging or through the conversion of used/free file system space to mask and employed during the recovery procedure. The data recovery software analyzes and edits the raw content of files and storage devices directly with a broad set of supplementary tools.
4) Storage Technologies
Moreover, UFS Explorer supports a variety of storage technologies including:
Windows Dynamic Disks
Storage Spaces and de-duplication
Apple Software RAID
Core Storage and Time Machine
Linux mdadm and LVM with Thin Provisioning
5) Virtualization Support
Lastly, UFS Explorer works with a large number of virtualization systems such as:
