Operating System: Windows
The program allows restoring files from any storage attached to another remote computer, even if it is running a different operating system, and makes it possible to assemble RAID from drives connected to two or more PCs. RAID sets of various complexity are supported, including standard RAID patterns, nested / hybrid RAID levels and custom RAID configurations.
A flexible RAID builder with an embedded script handler makes it easy to define and modify RAID configurations, while a hexadecimal viewer allows analyzing raw data of partitions and drives.
In addition to RAID, the application works with PCs, laptops, USB flash drives, memory cards, external hard drives, virtual disks of VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, QEMU, XEN, Parallels and disk image files of various formats.
The software supports a wide range of file systems of 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 handling a variety of modern storage technologies, like mdadm and LVM, Windows dynamic disks and MS Storage Spaces, Apple Software RAID and Fusion Drive, Drobo BeyondRAID, Synology Hybrid RAID and Btrfs-RAID, BitLocker and APFS encryption, etc.
UFS Explorer Network RAID provides direct access via LAN and allows recovering data from drives containing bad sectors connected via a DeepSpar Disk Imager device.
In addition to that, the software features various options for work with damaged drives.
It allows configuring parameters for access and usage of a storage device, creating a full or partial disk image with various settings and rules for processing bad blocks. Drives and arrays with bad blocks can be handled using bad sector maps generated during imaging, through recognition of a given pattern or created by third-party tools.
