SoftAmbulance has announced the release of a data recovery tool to restore data from damaged hard drives.
Partition Doctor allows users to recover data and fix disk corruption at home without sending the disk to a data recovery service. It can make recovery possible for more than 300 types of file, picture and document even if the hard disk is severely corrupted.
It also features Deep Search, a technology that locates files on a damaged disk even if the file system is missing or corrupted. It uses low-level disk access to scan the entire surface of the damaged disk in order to match data against an extensive database that defines more than 300 types of files.
Partition Doctor is also designed to make disk recovery as safe as possible, minimizing any chance of further corruption. It can make a precise image of a damaged disk, working with that image makes any repairs easily reversible, allowing different recovery strategies to be tried to achieve the best result.
