NTFS / FAT Disk Recovery SoftwareLooking for a tool to recover an NTFS or FATvolume?
Formatted the disk or deleted partitions? Boot disk or SSD drive no longer recognized by the system? Hetman NTFS Recovery will recover data even if the disk was repartitioned and formatted afterwards!
Hetman NTFS Recovery restores information that goes missing after a storage accident. Formatted and repartitioned hard drives, deleted partitions, inaccessible disks or simply a bunch of deleted files and folders – Hetman NTFS Recovery can recover everything as long as the problem concerns an NTFS volume.
The tool performs a comprehensive analysis of the file system, and can read the entire disk surface looking for any missing information that might still be available. The fully visual pre-recovery preview allows viewing many types of documents, pictures etc. with a built-in viewer. Finally, the user interface is so similar to Windows Explorer that you’ll never notice the difference – until realizing you’re browsing through deleted files!
Hetman NTFS Recovery can successfully recover files of any type. However, for certain types of files it can go one step further in case of serious problems. The tool can identify files such as documents (DOC, DOCX, RTF, PDF,…), spreadsheets (XLS, XLSX,…), presentations (PPT, PPTX,…), compressed archives (ZIP, RAR,…), digital pictures (JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, PSD,…), video and audio files (AVI, DAT, MKV, MPG, VOB, MP3, …) and many other popular formats by scanning the entire disk surface for characteristic file signatures. Once a recognizable signature is encountered, Hetman NTFS Recovery will be able to detee the file’s exact physical location on the disk and recover the file.
Supported Storage Devices
– Hetman NTFS Recovery can recover information from hard drives of all types and makes, as long as they are (or were) formatted with the NTFS file system.
– The tool supports USB pen drives, all types of memory types and most external storage devices connected via a USB cable, recovering NTFS volumes only.
– Information from SSD drives can be recoverable if the disk is corrupted or inaccessible, or in a case the TRIM functionality was not enabled. Otherwise, the combined actions of TRIM and garbage collection may render deleted information permanently inaccessible.
Ease of Use
Recovering data with Hetman NTFS Recovery is easy as 1-2-3. Literally, it takes just three easy steps in the File Recovery Wizard to scan the disk and locate all the recoverable data. The recovery process is completely safe, as all operations are performed strictly in read-only mode. The files to be recovered will be saved onto a separate disk or external media in order to prevent possible damage to the rest of the files. The user interface is similar to Windows Explorer, providing familiar browsing experience for deleted files and folders. Deleted files are displayed along with existing ones, distinguished by a distinctive icon.
Data Recovery Ee
Hetman NTFS Recovery makes use of a highly sophisticated and well-refined data recovery ee also available in Hetman’s top of the line tool, Hetman Partition Recovery. The recovery ee can either scan just the file system in a matter of seconds, or perform a thorough, comprehensive analysis of the entire disk surface. Its content-aware analysis can reliably identify and recover files located on damaged, formatted and inaccessible media. Combining information gathered from the file system and obtained with content-aware comprehensive analysis, Hetman NTFS Recovery can successfully recover a great deal of data while re-creating the original folder structure. Effectively, using Hetman NTFS Recovery results in about the same number of recovered files as weeks’ worth efforts of a well-equipped forensic lab.
Previewing the content of a deleted file is extremely simple. Just click on a file, and Hetman NTFS Recovery will immediately display its preview. The built-in viewer is completely stand-alone, and does not use any third-party or external applications. Preview is available for more than two hundred formats such as office documents, spreadsheets, images, movies, music, backups and archives. If the correct preview is displayed, then the file can be successfully recovered for sure.
When developing Hetman NTFS Recovery, we took data safety as top design goal. Hetman NTFS Recovery approaches recoverable media in strictly enforced read-only mode, ensuring that no further damage is caused to your data. For badly damaged and physically worn devices we’re offering an extra-safe recovery mode involving a virtual disk image. By capturing the content of the entire physical device into a virtual disk image, Hetman NTFS Recovery ensures that information is read in a single operation, thus minimizing the potential risk of accidental failure. The image can then be used to recover information as the next step.
Saving Files Being Recovered
While saving a file can be as easy as hitting the “Save” button, make sure to use a separate drive letter or external storage media to keep files being recovered. Otherwise, you’ll be risking overwriting the original data. This is fine in theory, but recovering huge disks requires a similarly sized storage device with lots of free space available.

Hetman NTFS Recovery supports all versions of the NTFS file system (abbr. New Technology File System, including NTFS 3, 4, and 5) including alternative data streams (ADS), compressed and encrypted files.
