As the default file system for all computers running supported editions of Microsoft Windows, NTFS is by far the most popular in the world. It's very robust and reliable but, like anything, it's not perfect. Sometimes data can end up being lost due to a disk error, a malicious software attack, or even an accidental deletion. Almost every computer user knows what it feels like to lose important data, especially when it turns out they don't have an up to date backup. Fortunately, there is an opportunity to get back the data you've lost, even if the files in question have been removed from the recycle bin or the entire drive or partition has been formatted. With NTFS Recovery Toolkit, you can exploit that opportunity before the deleted data is permanently overwritten. These sophisticated yet user-friendly tools together give you the best chances possible of retrieving what you've lost. Most computers feature multiple partitions, in which a single physical hard drive is logically divided up into different volumes. This is common with new computers, where original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often keep a portion of the drive partitioned off for recovery files. Windows may create multiple partitions when it's installed. Often, it's safe to delete these extra partitions, but there's also a high risk of things going wrong when you're tampering with the partition structure of your system hard drive. In the worst-case scenarios, you could accidentally delete or format an entire partition. If that happens, the only way to recover the data is to use specialized third-party recovery software. NTFS Recovery Toolkit does that by scanning the storage device for recoverable partitions and files of the types specified. NTFS Recovery Toolkit has just been updated to version 12, which sports a lot of refinements and new features. Most significant among these are the improved recovery on NTFS volumes located in Windows Storage Spaces as well as improved recovery for hard drives formatted with 4 KB sector sizes. The latest recovery kernel features several bug fixes and improvements to boost your chances of a successful recovery operation. Two new predefined file signatures have been added to the database as well - the Canon Raw Image (CR3) and Finale Notation (MUSX) formats. Now, you can easily locate files of those types using the built-in search function. Also, the latest versions of Active@ File Recovery 19 and Active@ Partition Recovery 19 are included to help you recover individual files and partitions on drives formatted in the NTFS file system, as well as others. NTFS Recovery Toolkit works with any type of writable digital storage medium, whether internal or external. NTFS Recovery Toolkit works in both manual and automatic mode. Manual mode is designed for expert users, and it allows users to make low-level edits to the data on the disk with the included freeware Disk Editor utility. It is also possible to fix certain problems with the Partition Manager. Other users will prefer the simplicity of the automated mode, which avoids doing a low-level disk surface analysis in favor of automated solutions like the Active@ Partition Recovery and Active@ File Recovery tools.
