Free R-UNDELETE version for Home Users recovers files from external USB disks, digital photo and video camera memory cards and other devices with the FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and exFAT) file system. In additional, it also uses the scan for known file types, which makes R-Undelete Home is an ideal solution for recovery lost digital photos, movies, and music (read the article Photo Recovery for more details).
R-Undelete creates an image and simultaneously scans the data being copied. The program creates two files stored in the same place: an image file and a file with the scan info. The upgraded file viewer supports the additional file formats including Adobe Acrobat pdf, Microsoft Office documents doc, xls, ppt (Office 97-2003), docx, xlsx, pptx. Added S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) attribute monitoring for hard drives allows the users to examine disk health and predict their possible failures.
A new, faster, and more robust algorithm for Known File Types scanning and FAT file system processing has been implemented. The algorithm is adapted to multi-core processing and prevents the program from freezing and crashing in a critical situation.
