File Scavenger� Version 3 is a file "undelete" and data recovery
utility for Windows XP�, Windows 7, Vista�, Windows Server
2003�, Windows 2000�, Windows NT� and Windows ME/98/95�. File
Scavenger� can recover files that have been accidentally deleted
(including files removed from the Recycle Bin, in a DOS window, from a
network drive, from Windows Explorer with the SHIFT key held down)
provided that recovery is attempted before the files are permanently
overwritten by new data. File Scavenger� supports both basic and
dynamic disks, NTFS compression, alternate data streams, sparse files,
Unicode filenames, etc. Except in severe cases, both the file and the
folder path leading to the file can be recovered.
File Scavenger� can also recover files from a reformatted or
corrupted volume even when the volume has been deleted and its
original position and size are unknown. File Scavenger� can scan an
entire physical hard drive to look for traces of defunct volumes.
File Scavenger� uses advanced algorithms to handle disks with bad
sectors and badly corrupted partitions. It can be installed on a hard
drive or run from a portable storage device such as a memory stick,
removable drive, CD or floppy disk. To run File Scavenger�, you must
log on as a system administrator to the computer where data recovery
Files can only be restored if the disk areas allocated to the files
have not been overwritten by new data. All recovered files should be
validated for the integrity of the recovered data.
