Simples Windows Data Recovery Standalone-Tool, das Datenträger nach gelöschten Dokumenten, Bildern & Multimediadateien
untersuchen kann. Unter "Advaced Settings" kann per Schieberegeler sektorenweise gesucht werden,
also z.B. auch bei gelöschten Partitionen. ACHTUNG: Falls ein (leeres) Diskettenlaufwerk eingebaut ist,
kann's beim Start des Tools eine (Kein Datenträger) PopUp-Meldung geben.
Das Utility ist noch in der Entwicklungsphase, und der Autor nimmt Feature-Requests (per Mail) entgegen.
FAZIT: Klein, brauchbar und flott, aber bspw. Recuva (EFB-Suche)
ist wesentlich umfassender bei Dateitypen und Infos.
DiskDigger can recover files from any type of media that your computer can read. This includes USB flash drives,
memory cards (SD, CompactFlash, Memory Stick, etc), and of course your hard drive.
The types of files that it recovers includes photos, videos, music, documents, and other formats.
- DiskDigger scans for many different types of files, including photos, videos, music files,
and documents, and displays what it finds as it scans in real time.
- You can preview most of the files found by DiskDigger without having to save them to a different location first.
More than that, you can preview files while DiskDigger continues scanning!
- DiskDigger scans any type of media that is readable by your computer, including USB flash drives,
memory cards (SD, CompactFlash, Memory Stick, etc), and your hard drive(s).
Also, it is completely independent of the type of file system that's present in your media.
The program bypasses the file system and reads the raw data chunks (sectors) to recover data.
- DiskDigger can even recover fragments of some files, like partially overwritten photos or other images.
- DiskDigger does everything in memory, meaning that it never writes any temporary files to your disk or
other media (unless you choose to save files that it recovers).
- Since DiskDigger is a completely self-contained program, it leaves no trace on the computer where it is run.
It does not save any settings to the registry. There is nothing to install, and the entire program is a single executable file.
- I can't think of any! OK, fine, there may be one or two:
- Because DiskDigger bypasses the file system of the device being read, it will detect files that haven't been deleted
in addition to files that have. This means that you might have to sift through files that still exist in the file system before
you find a file that's actually been deleted. However, the Preview feature makes this process quick and painless.
- Some very large files may be fragmented by the file system on the disk. In this case,
DiskDigger will be able to recover only the first fragment of the file.
- If you're scanning a hard drive that has/had an Operating System installed on it (or other various applications),
you might find a lot of irrelevant small files that were specific to the operating system. Some examples of this might be
images from every website you've ever visited (due to browser caching), or every single icon from a program that uses
icons in its user interface.
- Scanning a large hard drive may take a substantial amount of time& but this is a matter of convenience.
If you're truly determined to recover any possible lost files, you probably won't mind waiting for the program to finish
scanning a large drive.
How to Use
I hope that using DiskDigger should be intuitive enough for most people. In fact, it was written with ease of use in mind.
However, I may write up a short guide on using it in the near future.
