DMDE is a powerful software for data searching, editing, and recovery on FAT and NTFS disks. It recovers directory structure in some complicated cases when other software gives heap of files with obscure names, and also may recover some files which are not recoverable by other software.
DMDE has a number of freeware features (Free Edition) such as disk editing, simple partition management (e.g. easy partition undelete), RAID constructing, disk imaging, single file recovery. DMDE paid editions support also file group and directory recovery (may recover directory tree), and Professional Edition has additional features to recover data for clients.
DMDE supports FAT12/16, FAT32, NTFS, and works under Windows 98/ME/2K/XP/Vista/7 (GUI and Console), DOS (Console), Linux (Terminal).
Algorithms of thorough search and analysis effectively reconstruct directory structure and recover files after some complex disk damages (such as format, partition manager failure, and other). It is possible to find data quickly without a full scan in the case of minor filesystem damage.
Simple partition manager finds and restores accidentally removed partitions using information from boot sectors of FAT, NTFS, exFAT, and superblocks of Ext2/3/4, and from their backup copies. Partitioning is displayed in the form useful for analysis and error correction (errors are highlighted).
Disk editor is compatible with the most recent Windows versions and supports automatic volume locking during writing to volume areas. With the disk editor you can view, edit, and navigate through different disk structures (such as MBR partition tables, FAT and MFT file tables, boot sectors, directories and files of FAT and NTFS). Cluster map allows finding the file located at a specified cluster or sector.
RAID constructor is for virtual reconstruction of RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-4, RAID-5 (including delayed parity), JBOD/spanned disks.
Disk imaging includes creating, writing images back to disk, disk cloning, and supports handling of I/O errors (bad sectors).
NTFS utilities allow you to copy, delete file, create, repair, remove directory bypassing NTFS driver.
DMDE supports national file names, disk images, large disks, large files, large sectors, compressed NTFS files, and other specific features.
DMDE is portable so it runs just after extracting.
