This program provides direct access to files on virtual disks of virtual machines and any copies allowing users to eliminate virtual machine start and configuration. Additionally, with RAID Access Plugin - RAID Builder access to data on any complex RAID-system built with the plug-in is possible.

The software is adjusted to work with: file systems on disk images, virtual disks, RAID storages etc. without the need of prior scanning.

screen After starting the application you will see the navigation tree on the left side of the tab, where all the opened storages will be shown, as well as partitions, disk images and complex storages (RAID). You can either choose the needed storage from this top-level container or use the “Open” tool. In case when you don’t see the required storage, use the 'Refresh storages' tool to reset the tree of attached storages.
You can also choose specific files and folders if needed further on.

screen The application can evaluate the chosen storage, which may take a while, depending on the storage size. It's strongly recommended to save scan result project. If you save scan result, you won't need to scan the storage once again. The evaluation result will also show any present bad objects.

screen The final step is analyzing the scan results. The scan result shows users all files and folders available for recovery. The simple interface allows users to browse and copy files just like in an original file system, making the recovery procedure easy and fast. This means, required files and folders can be saved using all the same tools in Explorer. Users only need to choose the lost file or folder and follow the steps to save it or to make a copy in the specified destination folder.
