Recovery Explorer Professional Most extensive data recovery toolkit

Recovery Explorer Professional is a robust instrument that will cope even with most challenging data loss tasks that technical experts may come across with. The software handles a broad set of devices, file systems and RAID configurations. The application can boast a wide variety of tools for viewing and editing contents of disks, partitions and files in the hexadecimal mode as well as for low-level analysis of data consistency. What is more, the program is capable of decrypting disk volumes for data recovery and data access purposes while the disk-on-disk recovery technology lets you open a virtual disk nested on a physical storage, allowing to recover data straight from a virtual machine without the need to extract virtual disk first. This powerful utility is the first choice of those who have highest demands to the data recovery software they use.

Recovery Explorer Professional is the successor of the data recovery software – UFS Explorer Professional Recovery (version 5). Learn about the difference between these software products and find out the advantages of choosing Recovery Explorer Professional as your data recovery tool.
