11 November 2019

Powerful data recovery, RAID and dynamic disks supported.

Overview

R-Studio is powerful and cost-effective data recovery software for Apple lovers. R-Studio for Mac is specially designed for Mac OS X environment and recovers files from HFS/HFS+ (Mac), FAT/NTFS (Windows), UFS1/UFS2 (FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD/Solaris) and Ext2FS/Ext3FS (Linux) partitions. It also recovers data on disks, even if their partitions are formatted, damaged or deleted. Additional file recovery algorithm increases the quality of file recovery and recovers files not recognized in file system metadata.

Dynamic disk and RAID are supported as well as recovering data forks, resource forks, finder information and UNIX file system permissions, encrypted files, compressed files and alternative data streams. Files and file systems structures (HFS/HFS+ data forks, resource forks, NTFS/FAT boot sectors, MFT file record, MBR, LDM structures, etc) can be viewed and edited in the professional disk hex editor. Flexible parameter settings give you absolute control over data recovery.

  • Network data recovery speed has been increased by several dozen times.
  • Text/hexadecimal editor shows the position on partition for resident files on the Ext4, UFS, HFS+, and APFS file systems, and for compressed files on the HFS+ file systems.

  • R-Studio may have opened some partitions with large numbers of files for a long time.
  • R-Studio may have crashed during performing recheck recovery chances.
  • Volume labels may have been detected incorrectly for UFS1 partitions.
  • Idle RAID sequences may have appeared when a custom RAID was created. Those sequences could not be deleted.

Tried to recover from a reformated 2T HD. - This app found only 5% of the images Canon.CR2, tif, Jpeg, .nef - it could not preview the .CR2 and .nef - it could not recover the files larger than 64k, unless I bought the software. Thus being a totally WORTHLESS DEMOS and a very inelegant way to force people to buy - the interface is not user friendly and the documentation does not correspond to the panels and tags displayed = much more complicated than the competing softwares. To me, this app is by far the worst of its category.

Yea - I just tried using the demo version of this with an eye to purchasing if it met my needs. Compared to everything else out there, the user interface is truly disgusting and in-the-stratosphere way to complicated. I'd never buy this.
