R-Studio for Linux extends the family of powerful and cost-effective data recovery software from R-TT to the Linux operating system. Thanks to R-Studio for Linux's flexible parameters and customizable settings, users get absolute control over their data recovery tasks. R-Studio for Linux recovers data from logical disks and partitions as well as disks and partitions that have been re-formatted, damaged or deleted. In addition to disks with common Linux file systems, R-Studio for Linux recovers files from Windows, FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD/Solaris, and Macintosh formatted disks. Moreover, raw file recovery (scan for known file types) can be used for heavily damaged or unknown file systems. Recovered files can be saved to disks with any file system supported by the Linux kernel (i.e. ext2, ext3, FAT, NTFS).
Ext2/3/4FS and XFS (created by Linux or another OS), FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS/NTFS5 with data deduplication, exFAT, ReFS/ReFS2+/ReFS 3.4, APFS (including encryption), HFS+, HFSX, HFS, and UFS1, UFS2, UFS BigEndian (used by the FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD operating systems), ISO9660 (CDs/DVDs/Images), UStar/Tar/CPIO/Pax* (Tape drives).
* R-Studio Technician versions only
Damaged RAID recovery. Standard RAID levels supported: volume set, 0, 1, 4, 5, 6. Nested and non-standard RAID level supported: 10(1+0), 1E, 5E, 5EE, 6E. Support for parity delays in all applicable levels. Support for customer-specified RAID layouts.
Automatic RAID parameter recognition. R-Studio can recognize all RAID parameters for RAID 5 and 6. This feature helps the user to solve one of the most difficult problems in RAID recovery - RAID parameter recognition.
An advanced algorithm for raw file recovery (search for file signatures): R-Studio's known file types search recognizes the file structure of common file types, allowing you to recover data from disks where the file system is damaged or unknown (i.e. HDDs, CDs, DVDs, floppy disks, Compact Flash Card, USB drives, ZIP drives, memory sticks, and other removable media).
User-defined known file types. It's possible to create very complex definitions to accurately identify non-standard file type.
Estimation of chances for successful file recovery.
Supported Operating Systems: Recovers data from networked computers running Win2000, XP, Vista, Win7, Win8, Mac OS X or Linux and certain UNIX platforms.
Almost all R-Studio's files (images, scan info, logs, etc.) can be saved to and load from, a remote computer.
Low bandwidth, low data transfer: Data recovery and analysis processes run locally (on the host computer with the damaged/deleted disks), rather than on the remote technician's computer to increase data recovery speed and reduce bandwidth. Likewise, recovered data can be saved to a local disk without being transferred over the network.
Disk imaging: R-Studio can create exact duplicates of entire disks, logical disks or partitions. Disk images are compatible with all previous versions of R-Studio.
Advanced disk imaging: Disk images can be split, compressed and password-protected. These disk images require the current version of R-Studio or R-Drive Image.
Disk imaging and scan can be performed simultaneously.
Advanced object copy: In addition to byte-to-byte copy of any object visible in the Drives panel, partitions and hard drives can be smart-copied with certain parameters changed.
Two advanced disk imaging methods in R-Studio Technician: runtime and multi-pass disk imaging algorithms that make R-Studio for Linux the cornerstone of a powerful data recovery workstation.
Bootable R-Studio Emergency Disk. R-Studio Emergency (32/64 bit) version can boot directly from an external USB drive, optical disc or several floppy disks. Useful for recovering data from internal hard drives on computers that cannot startup due to damaged or corrupted file systems.
Improved emergency startup for UEFI computers.
