R-Data Recovery Scanner will scan your hard drive and build a list of deleted files on any logical drive of your computer with an NTFS file system. Windows uses the Master File Table (MFT) as an index to the files it stores on your hard drives. When you delete a file, Windows marks its MFT entry as 'deleted', so the file is left on the hard drive. The scan process of R-Data Recovery Scanner uses the MFT to look for files, as well as the contents of the drive. Once the scanning is complete you can use report search functionality to find your deleted file if you remember at least one of the following: file name, size, creation date or last modified date. The scanner analyzes your computer and searches for deleted files that can be recovered by data recovery software. You can download this software from Ancysoft.com website. R-Data Recovery Scanner allows viewing a list of the found files to estimate recovery chances prior to data recovery software purchasing. Parameter settings give you control over report searching.
