Whats new in RMF v4
For those of you who are familiar with Recover My Files version 3, you will notice some significant changes in Recover My Files version 4. Our objectives in developing this version were for it to be:
- Easier to use
- Recover more files in a greater variety of data loss situations
Major new features include:
Partition and Lost Drive Recovery
Much of the new technology in Recover My Files version 4 is in the engine for partition / drive recovery. Formatted drives, missing drive letters, deleted partitions will recover more effectively with file and folder structure.
The program interface has been streamlined. The type of search is now divided into two data recovery modes:
1. Recover Files: This option is used when individual files have been deleted or lost.
2. Recover Drive: This options is used when an entire drive have been lost, due to an accidental format, or other system error.
We have also re-designed the drive selection window, making it easier to see which drive letters are attached to which physical drives.
Save and Reload Search Results
It is now possible in Recover My Files v4 to run a search for deleted or lost files, save the search results and then reload the search results at a later time.
Important! - If you use this feature, avoid writing any new data to the drive in the interim. If you do, the contents of the drive will have changed and the search results may no longer point to valid data (i.e. it could be overwritten and destroyed by the new data).
File saving has had a major overhaul. Options now exist to: skip empty files and folders, ignore large files, rename illegal file characters etc.
Recover My Files version 4 has a new and more robust CD/DVD burning engine. It will provide a compatibility with a wider range of CD/DVD burning hardware.
Recover My Files version 4 continues it's ability to burn directly from the search screen to CD/DVD without creating temporary files during the process.
Search Results Display
Recover My Files version 4 has an improved search result display:
1. Folder View: shows the recovered file and folder structure;
2. File View: sorts the file types by their type (e.g. .doc, .jpeg, .xls);
and two new display tabs have been added:
3. Date: To quickly display files grouped by their created, modified or access date; and
4. Find: a powerful tool to search through scan results for specific files based on user criteria.
The following features are available when a Recover My Files version 4 'Professional' or 'Technician' license is purchased:
CD and DVD Recovery
Recover My Files version 4 will recover lost or missing sessions from CD or DVD.
