R-Studio Review

Fernando Ortega
Data recovery software that supports FAT, NTFS and Mac HFS partitions even if partitions have been formatted
A review of R-Studio by Fernando Ortega

Originally developed as a solution for IT experts, R-Studio is a comprehensive solution for data recovery on Windows systems with support for FAT16/FAT32, NTFS, NTFS5, Mac partitions (HFS/HFS ) and Linux partitions (ext2/ext3/et4). It can perform recovery on both local drives and network drives, even if the partitions are damaged, formatted or deleted.

R-Studio offers users some neat features like recovering data and files lost due to a virus, lost data due to a power outage and attempt to recover files from previously existing partitions.

One lovely feature of this paid software solution is, unlike various other rivals, they keep it updated constantly ironing out any known bugs and adding useful features.

The newest version of R-Studio (5.x onwards) adds some new features to this software making it even more useful in a time when an increasing amount of people are using 64-bit operating systems (like Windows 7 64-bit). Version 5.0 builds on the already fast searching algorithms for FAT and NTFS partitions, it adds a new 'forensic mode' for the technician version, clickable links in the hexeditor and RAID 6 support.

R-Studio can recover data from partitions, recover corrupted data and restore deleted files.

R-Studio features and highlights:
  • NAT/firewall traversal.
  • Scan algorithm improvement. Scanning was improved for FAT and NTFS partitions.
  • Forensic mode (Technician version only).
  • RAID 6 support, including Reed-Solomon and Vertical XOR.
  • Support for exFAT and Ext4 FS file systems.
  • Advanced object copy.
  • Support for 64- and 32-bit Windows versions.
  • Progress bar; overall recovery process, elapsed and remaining time, and recovery log.
  • Clickable links in the text/hexadecimal editor.

R-Studio Data Recovery Software is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from file recovery software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The R-Studio Data Recovery Software 8.8 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
