Basic knowledge for data recovery

Generally, a file storage is made up of the file directory information (contains the file name, established time, the storage place of data content, etc.) and the specific data content, and which are normally saved on different areas on the disk/drive/partition.

Once a file is deleted or lost, the file storage area will be marked as "empty" to save new file, but it is not actually be removed from the disk/drive/partition. What our program does is trying to detect the deleted/lost file and recover it.



What is RAW Recovery?

Data recovery tools usually rebuild lost files in 2 ways. A fast way to locate the file pieces via file directory info. The scan result will be listed in a file tree with original file name and attributes.

RAW Recovery will search and re-create the file directly by searching all data areas, it requires more time to go through all sectors on a partition. The recovered file will be assigned a new name like FILE001 and all sorted by file types in "More lost files (RAW Files)" folder.



Why we need to check More lost files (RAW Files) folder?

But in some special cases, the file directory might have already been affected or even damaged during the accident, then the files listed in file free must be incomplete and could not be opened normally.

RAW Recovery detects files from the file content area directly, so you still have a high chance to list correct file content. "More lost files (RAW Files)" folder is worth to be checked as long as you cannot find all the files you want and you might get a better result.
