From East Imperial Soft:
Magic Partition Recovery is a unique contender among the many data recovery tools. Integrating first-class data recovery algorithms with fully guided user interface that literally walks the user through the entire recovery process, Magic Partition Recovery is a tool for everyone.
Supporting all major Windows and Linux file systems including NTFS, FAT32, and ext2/ext3, Magic Partition Recovery can recover files and folders from healthy and damaged storage media from your Windows PC. The tool can recover information from magnetic and solid-state hard disks, USB flash drives, all types of memory cards and a number of external devices that manifest themselves as removable storage when connected to a computer via a USB cord.
The most interesting feature of Magic Partition Recovery is how it actually finds files on the disk. Let's say you've got a corrupted hard drive that doesn't even appear in the list of available drive letters (but can still be seen by Windows Device Manager as a storage device). Most if not all data recovery tools fail to even recognize the disk. Magic Partition Recovery can work with a physical device, engaging automatic search of available partitions. However, even if no logical disks are discovered, Magic Partition Recovery can still locate and recover many types of files by using content-aware recovery.
Content-aware recovery reads the entire surface of the disk sector by sector, looking for characteristic signatures that can give away files of certain types. If a known signature is encountered, Magic Partition Recovery can then calculate the beginning and size of the file for subsequent recovery. How well the system works depends on the database of supported file types. Magic Partition Recovery can identify several hundred file types including all common picture and video formats, documents, archives, databases, and many other types of files.
Another good tool in Magic Partition Recovery is its extra-safe recovery mode. In this mode, Magic Partition Recovery images the entire storage device with a single read operation, thus minimizing stress put on a device that may be damaged or unreliable.
Magic Partition Recovery offers users a fully visual preview of all supported formats. The company guarantees successful recovery if a file shows up correctly in the preview window.
