Folks, it some times put you in hell when a disaster strikes to your computer. Data can be lost due to many different reasons. Accidental reformatting, power spikes, virus attacks and hardware malfunction are some of the scenarios where you will find yourself looking for a data recovery solution.
But now we don't need to worry about it alot, Zero Assumption Recovery provides a suite of highly effective and thorough data recovery software for Microsoft® Windows™ operating systems. ZAR is suitable for home users and small businesses who need a powerful data recovery solution for FAT16/FAT32/NTFS file systems. The default settings are reliable and thorough, but more technical users can benefit from a wealth of optional configurations.
The main features of our Windows data recovery software are:
Runs on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista
Supported filesystems are FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS (all versions)
Provides limited ext2 (Linux filesystem) support
Support for partition recovery
Support for hardware RAID0 and RAID5 recovery
Long and national file names are supported
Native NTFS compression is supported
What makes ZAR different?
There are three main reasons:
Firstly, it is easy to use. You can recover the data yourself as long as you are reasonably familiar with computers. ZAR is ideal for the home user who knows what a hard drive is and how many there are in his system - but more technically minded users can also benefit from a wide range of configuration options.
Secondly, it takes its time. When you are trying to recover critical data, you need to be persistent and painstakingly thorough. ZAR slowly and methodically crawls through your disk, checking and cross-checking everything and recovering as much data as possible. Faster programs may skip though your disk in seconds and come out empty-handed. ZAR persists, and succeeds.
Thirdly, it is more powerful than most. We know that you are trying to recover important data, and that every single piece that you retrieve could be vital. With Zero Assumption Recovery, nothing is assumed - ZAR never relies on anything located on the damaged disk. If incoherencies are discovered, thorough checks and cross-checks are used to derive the necessary information. The algorithms are built to withstand a severe pounding, which means that ZAR can recover data even when things seem hopeless.
ZAR 8.4 system requirements and demo version restrictions
Additional media to recover data to (never save files to the volume you are recovering, for this may cause further damage to the volume!)
Damaged drive must be physically functional. It should be at least detected by BIOS. Multiple bad sectors can be handled (but the data they contained is lost forever), but controller failures are beyond any software repair.
FAT16 (Used in Windows 95) and FAT32 (used in Windows 95 OSR2, 98, ME, 2000 and XP)
NTFS versions 1.2 (Windows NT 4.0), 3.0 (Windows 2000), and 3.1 (Windows XP/2003/Vista).
Limited ext2 (Linux filesystem) support
Digital image recovery function operates regardless of the filesystem type.
Supported RAID layouts:
Hardware RAID0 and RAID5 with any number of member disks.
It is possible to recover Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2003 server software RAID0 and RAID5 if the RAID members occupy the entire physical disk.
There are the following limitations in the evaluation version of ZAR 8.4:
Only (up to) four directories can be recovered in the demo version of our computer data recovery software.
The demo version is unable to load the scan result file. However, it does save these files to avoid having to rescan the disk when you got the full version.
In digital image recovery mode program operates as freeware with no functional limitations. List of known compatible digital camera models and image formats is available Known camera compatibility list here.
Zmeil 2.1 system requirements and demo version restrictions
Windows NT, 2000, XP, 2003 or Vista.
Internet Explorer 5.0 or later.
Plenty of a free disk space to store the recovered files. It is recommended to have a at least twice the size of the damaged email database available.
The evaluation version of Zmeil 2.1 only recovers 9 messages maximum per the database.
Zlon 1.0 system requirements and demo version restrictions
Windows NT, 2000, XP, or 2003.
The evaluation version of Zlon 1.0 expires in 14 days. If you want to use it past the expiration you will need to order the unlock code from us.
Zero Assumption Disk Space Visualizer 1.2 system requirements
