Hetman Partition Recovery is an effective solution to rescue accidentally lost files and corrupted partitions. This tool supports a wide range of file formats, such as documents, pictures, presentations, spreadsheets, archives and media files. Likewise, it supports multiple types of storage devices, with FAT and NTFS formats. Finally, the recovered data can be saved to practically any kind internal and external drives, burned onto discs or even uploaded to an FTP server.
The application has an easy-to-use interface. In this respect, it is very convenient that there is a file recovery wizard to guide you through the necessary steps. Fortunately, there are two types of scans, quick and full analysis. So, if you are running short of time and suspect the file will be easy to undelete, you can use the fastest method. After the scanning is complete, you get a list of the recoverable files. Again, there are two preview modes: visual and HEX. The visual mode can render the contents of the selected files just as they would look in their native application. Moreover, advanced users can use the built-in HEX editor to preview them in binary mode.
It is also good news that the program can recover not only files but also damaged folder structures. Thus, you can even rescue an entire logical drive and save it as an ISO image if you want to. In addition, this tool allows you to reconstruct damaged partitions and repair corrupted file systems. Luckily, this product is absolutely safe. In this regard, it is impossible to end up destroying the original data because it works in read-only mode. Thus, the results of your recovery need to be saved to a different location.
All in all, Hetman Partition Recovery is a great tool. It is too bad its trial version does not allow to actually recover the files. The product is also somewhat expensive particularly for home users, who would only need to rescue files from time to time. However, it
is a good thing that there are other similar products by the same developer, but they are intended for specific file types, such as documents and photographs.
