For as long as digital technology has existed, data loss has been foremost on people’s minds. If you’ve ever formatted a drive or partition or emptied the recycle bin only to realize moments later that you’ve deleted important files, then you know the feeling. However, people often assume that emptying the recycle bin or formatting a drive permanently deletes all data stored within. After all, Windows and other operating systems warn you by default before you have a chance to proceed. Once the confirmation has been given, it’s normal to assume that the data is gone for good. Fortunately, that’s not actually the case.
How Does Data Recovery Work with [email protected] UNERASER?
When files are deleted from the recycle bin, or the partition or drive has been formatted, the only thing that changes initially is master file table. This enormous database contains information about every file and folder on the drive, such as its location, name and filetype. When a file is deleted, the entry in the MFT is deleted, and the space occupied by that file is made available to the operating system. However, until something overwrites the original data on the drive, it will remain there intact. Until that happens, however, there is a window of opportunity during which you can get it back. That’s where [email protected] UNERASER comes in.
[email protected] UNERASER exploits this opportunity to locate deleted files or files on formatted drives, even if the entire filesystem has been removed and the drive still needs to be formatted before normal use. Sometimes, the original data doesn’t get permanently overwritten for months or even years, though it’s always better to act sooner, since the chances of success will be much higher. That’s why you should act quickly to minimize the risk of overwriting the deleted data. [email protected] UNERASER runs from a self-contained boot environment to avoid writing any additional information to the drive, therefore reducing the chances it overwrites the data you want to recover.
Because the meta data (information about the file) is permanently deleted when the drive is formatted or the recycle bin is emptied, the deleted data is invisible to the operating system. However, [email protected] UNERASER works by detecting other file signatures to determine the type of file and provide a preview of recoverable files. The latest edition provides support for a large number of file formats. New file signatures supported include ONE, PUB, VDI, BCB, IBD, MYI and FRM. You can also recover images, audio and video files, documents and any other filetype. Version 13.0.0 also provides a new Easy Recovery Mode to simplify the search for lost files.
While you should always get into the habit of keeping current backups of your files, preferably in an off-site location such as the cloud, you also need multiple layers of security. This is doubly true for businesses and individuals who store sensitive data on their devices. Computers and hard drives can fail without notice and, if you don’t have a current backup, a file-recovery tool like [email protected] UNERASER presents one final chance to get everything back intact.
