R-Studio Technician supports three types of object images:
The following Table presents the advantages and disadvantages of these imaging types and our recommendations.
|Advantages||Fast for healthy drives. Drives can be scanned during their imaging.||
Very fast: it images only those drive areas that are necessary to recover required files.
You may start file recovery immediately in parallel with disk imaging.
Fast for healthy drives. Drives can be scanned during their imaging.
All problem areas are processed and all accessible data is extracted for faulty drives.
|Drawbacks||Slow for faulty drives. May get stuck on large bad block areas.||Images are incomplete.||Slow for faulty drives. It's necessary to wait for the imaging process to complete to proceed with further data recovery.|
|Recommendations||Use it only for knowingly healthy drives.||Use it for fast recovery.||The best choice for all drives. If the drive is healthy, multi-pass imaging works like linear imaging. If there are some or many bad sectors on the drive, they will be processed accordingly.|
