UFS Explorer Professional Recovery combines advanced reading and data recovery techniques with extensive means for processing defective storage media and manipulations with binary data. The application offers access to the available content and enables highly configurable extraction of lost data from the file systems applied in Windows (NTFS, FAT32, exFAT, ReFS/ReFS3), macOS (HFS+, APFS), Linux (Ext2-Ext4, XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, UFS, Btrfs, F2FS), BSD (ZFS) and VMware (VMFS, VMFS6). Besides stand-alone local storages and network drives, the software works with RAID-based devices, including such specific types as Drobo BeyondRAID, Synology SHR, RAID-Z and Btrfs-RAID, providing tools for both virtual assembly and decomposition of the RAID configuration. Embedded decryption techniques make it possible to unlock volumes encrypted with BitLocker, LUKS, TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt, FileVault2, APFS and other security solutions. Moreover, the utility supports many other storage technologies, including Windows LDM, Storage Spaces, deduplication, Fusion Drive, Linux mdadm and LVM with thin provisioning, as well as various disk image formats and virtual disks. The program allows specifying different parameters as to the access and usage of a storage device aimed at the extension of its lifespan. Drives connected to DeepSpar Disk Imager can be operated by the application via LAN; Interaction with other third-party solutions is supported as well. A disk image can also be created directly in the software, with adjustable settings, omission of bad blocks and optional deployment of a bitmap. Reading errors occurring in the imaging process are reflected in a defects map, which can also be created on the basis of occupied file system space or by external compatible systems. The built-in hexadecimal viewer and editor provide the opportunity to analyze the raw content of files or storages and perform the necessary corrections relying on many supplementary tools and functions.

UFS Explorer RAID Recovery is an accomplished software product geared towards RAID-related data recovery cases, besides usual simple tasks. The program allows reconstructing RAID systems of various configurations, including standard, nested or custom RAID patterns, and effectively restores data lost due to various logical issues, while a set of helpful options like file sorting, search, filters, preview, indication of a state, etc. make the process easy and smooth. The software supports a wide range of file systems used in Windows (NTFS, FAT, FAT32, exFAT), macOS (HFS+, APFS), Linux (Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, XFS, JFS, ReiserFS, UFS/UFS2, Btrfs), BSD/Solaris (ZFS) and is capable of working with various modern storage technologies, like mdadm, LVM, LDM, MS Storage Spaces, Drobo BeyondRAID, Synology Hybrid RAID, Btrfs-RAID, Apple Software RAID, Apple Fusion Drive, BitLocker and APFS encryption. The utility makes it possible to build RAID in a virtual mode, edit RAID parameters or save them for further work. Also, the software features an embedded hexadecimal viewer for brief analysis of data on partitions and disks. Furthermore, the program provides an extensive set of instruments for work with damaged drives. It allows defining settings related to access and usage of a storage device, creating a full or partial disk image with configurable parameters and rules for the omission of bad blocks. Drives and arrays with bad blocks can be processed using bad sector maps generated during imaging, through recognition of a given pattern or created by other compatible tools. In addition to RAID and RAID-based devices, like NAS, the software is applicable for data recovery from other storages: PCs and laptops, USB flash drives, memory cards, external hard drives, virtual machines, disk image files, etc. Among the supported virtual technologies are VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, QEMU, XEN, Parallels, disk images of Apple, EnCase, R-Studio and other formats.

Recovery Explorer Professional is a feature-packed software application for access and recovery of files in various cases of data loss or file system damage, easy comprehensible for both technical experts and advanced home users. The software works with a broad set of devices, including RAID of various complexities, and supports a wide variety of file systems: FAT32/exFAT/NTFS/ReFS/ReFS3 of Windows, HFS+/APFS file systems of macOS, Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, UFS/UFS2, Adaptec UFS, big-endian UFS, XFS, ReiserFS, JFS, Btrfs, F2FS of Linux, ZFS of SUN/FreeNAS and VMFS/VMFS6 of VMware. In addition to physical storages and various disk images, the program handles virtual disks of VMware, Hyper-V, QEMU, XEN, VirtualBox and Parallels. What is more, the utility incorporates embedded decryption techniques for BitLocker, LUKS, TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt, eCryptFS, Apple APFS, FileVault 2 and other encrypted volumes, that make use of the available password or decryption key and allow restoring files from an encrypted device like from one utilizing no encryption. Microsoft Storage Spaces, Dynamic disks, NTFS/ReFS volumes with enabled data deduplication, Apple Core Storage, mdadm, LVM with thin provisioning Btrfs-RAID, Drobo BeyondRAID and RAID-Z volumes are automatically detected by the software for further data recovery or access to files. Besides, the application can boast a wide variety of means for data analysis: for decomposition of RAID configurations, low-level analysis of data consistency on drives, partitions or files in the hexadecimal mode and others. The process of data evaluation is enhanced with the opportunity to see the state of each file, preview files of common formats, perform file search/sorting, etc. Recovery Explorer Professional can be also used to handle failing drives with definition of parameters as to the access and usage of the device, and the possibility to read out the storage only once and save the processed data to a sparse image file.
