(PRWEB) July 5, 2010
Recovery Mechanic Labs announces the update of HDD Mechanics enables comprehensive recovery for dozens new file formats by extending PowerSearch support to new types of files. In addition, the same types of files can now be previewed in pre-recovery mode. The total number of supported file formats now reaches 230.
HDD Mechanics offers basic and comprehensive data recovery modes. In basic mode, the tool can recover folders and all types of files. The basic mode, however, is limited to relatively healthy disks that still have a file system (FAT or NTFS) still available. This is not always the case.
If the file system is no longer available on the disk, or if it’s damaged severely, the company offers comprehensive recovery mode to locate missing information. The comprehensive recovery mode is enabled by PowerSearch, the company’s proprietary signature-search algorithm. PowerSearch scans the entire hard drive in order to locate missing files by matching information it reads from the disk against a database of recognizable file formats. Naturally, the more formats are recognized, the more types of files can be recovered during the deep scan of corrupted, formatted and inaccessible storage devices. The latest edition of HDD Mechanics adds a number of new file formats to the database, making the total number of recognizable formats 230.
LivePreview, a feature allowing users to preview recoverable files before restoring them, is also updated with additional file formats. LivePreview can now recognize around 230 file formats, a major update from the previously supported 150 types of files.
