Data Recovery for Linux


R-Studio for Linux extends the family of powerful and cost-effective data recovery software from R-TT to the Linux operating system. Thanks to R-Studio for Linux's flexible parameters and customizable settings, users get absolute control over their data recovery tasks. R-Studio for Linux recovers data from logical disks and partitions as well as disks and partitions that have been re-formatted, damaged or deleted. In addition to disks with common Linux file systems, R-Studio for Linux recovers files from Windows, FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD/Solaris, and Macintosh formatted disks. Moreover, raw file recovery (scan for known file types) can be used for heavily damaged or unknown file systems. Recovered files can be saved to disks with any file system supported by the Linux kernel (i.e. ext2, ext3, FAT, NTFS).

R-Studio for Linux recovers files:

  • Deleted from the computer and emptied from the Trash
  • Corrupted due to a virus, power failure or sudden shutdown
  • From disks that have been Re-formatted to the same file system or a different file system
  • Damaged and have bad sectors-R-Studio for Linux creates an image of the entire disk and recovers it from there to prevent further physical damage to the disk
  • Host OS: Linux, kernel 2.6 and above.
  • Supported file systems: Ext2/3/4FS (created by Linux or another OS), FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, NTFS5 (created and updated by Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7/8), exFAT, ReFS, HFS, HFS+, HFSX, and UFS1, UFS2, UFS BigEndian (used by the FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD operating systems).
  • Scan for Known File Types (raw file recovery): if the disk file system is heavily damaged or unsupported, R-Studio for Linux searches for specific data patterns ("file signatures") typical for certain file types (Microsoft Office documents, jpgs, etc.). Such known file types can be custom-defined.
  • Supports hardware RAIDs, volume sets and stripe sets; software RAID 4, RAID 5, RAID 6, volume sets, stripe sets and custom RAID layouts (user can specify and save presets for block size, order, offsets, stripe blocks, etc.).
  • Automatic RAID parameter recognition. R-Studio can recognize all RAID parameters for RAID 5 and 6. This feature helps the user to solve one of the most difficult problems in RAID recovery - RAID parameter recognition.
  • Support for new RAID levels: RAID10 (1+0), RAID1E, RAID5E, RAID5EE, and RAID6E.
  • Support for parity delays in all applicable RAID layouts.
  • S.M.A.R.T. attribute monitoring. R-Studio can display S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) attributes for hard drives to show their hardware health and predict their possible failures. Any unnecessary work with such hard drives should be avoided if S.M.A.R.T. warnings appear.
  • Support for HFS+ hardlinks to folders.
  • Supports basic disks and dynamic disks.
  • Data recovery from damaged or deleted partitions.
  • Compressed file recovery (NTFS, NTFS5).
  • Encrypted file recovery (NTFS5).
  • Recovery of alternative data streams (NTFS, NTFS5).
  • Localized name recognition.
  • Forensic mode. Creates an audit log that can be presented in court hearings. (Technician version only).
  • Bootable R-Studio Emergency Disk. R-Studio Emergency version can boot directly from an external USB drive, optical disc or several floppy disks. Useful for recovering data from internal hard drives on computers that cannot startup due to damaged or corrupted file systems.
  • Multilingual interface. Languages supported: English, German, French, Spanish, Portugal, Russian, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese.
  • Real-time progress status and file preview: During the scan, R-Studio graphically displays items found in the R-Studio Scan Information panel, including files of known types, FAT and NTFS MFT records, boot records, etc.
  • File preview: Double-click files to preview the recovered file. Useful for estimating the probability of successful recovery. In addition to common graphic and multimedia files, the previewer supports the following file formats without the installed respective applications: Adobe Acrobat pdf, Microsoft Office documents doc, xls, ppt (Office 97-2003), docx, xlsx, pptx.
  • Advanced search capabilities. Files can be searched for and automatically marked for recovery using their file names, file masks, sizes, date/time stamps, etc. The search and mark supports regular expressions.
  • File can be sorted by their types (extensions) and date/time stamps
  • Mass file recovery: Save time by selecting multiple files or using Recover All
  • File Recovery Lists: lists of files found on disks that can be exported out of R-Studio, manually edited, than imported back, and files from those lists will be automatically marked for recovery. Such lists are very useful if you want someone who is far away to decide which files are to recover and which aren't to.
  • Scan for known file types (or raw file search): R-Studio's known file types search recognizes the file structure of common file types, allowing you to recover data from disks where the file system is damaged or unknown (i.e. HDDs, CDs, DVDs, floppy disks, Compact Flash Card, USB drives, ZIP drives, memory sticks, and other removable media).
  • User-defined known file types. It's possible to create very complex definitions to accurately identify non-standard file type.
  • Hexadecimal disk and file editor: Supports NTFS file non-resident attribute storage. Preset and custom patterns and templates help parse data according to known data structures.
  • Disk imaging: R-Studio can create exact duplicates of entire disks, logical disks or partitions. Disk images are compatible with all previous versions of R-Studio.
  • Advanced disk imaging: Disk images can be split, compressed and password-protected. These disk images require the current version of R-Studio or R-Drive Image.
  • Disk imaging and scan can be performed simultaneously.
  • Recovered files can be saved on any local or networked disk visible to the host operating system.
  • Advanced object copy: In addition to byte-to-byte copy of any object visible in the Drives panel, partitions and hard drives can be smart-copied with certain parameters changed.
  • Supported Operating Systems: Recovers data from networked computers running Win2000, XP, Vista, Win7, Win8, Mac OS X or Linux and certain UNIX platforms.
  • Almost all R-Studio's files (images, scan info, logs, etc.) can be saved to and load from, a remote computer.
  • Low bandwidth, low data transfer: Data recovery and analysis processes run locally (on the host computer with the damaged/deleted disks), rather than on the remote technician's computer to increase data recovery speed and reduce bandwidth. Likewise, recovered data can be saved to a local disk without being transferred over the network.
