R-Linux has two operation modes:
File search on a partition (including recently found during disk scan).
In this mode, R-Linux analyzes data on the partitions. Then it displays all files which records have been found in the analyzed tables. Then recently deleted files, which records still remain, can be recovered. If files have not been found, that means that their records have been deleted. In this case, the disk must be scanned.
R-Linux supports mass file recovery. There is no limit in the number of files that may be recovered during one session.
File content may be previewed before recovery.
File or disk binary data can be viewed and edited in the text/hexadecimal editor. Also can be viewed and changed all attributes for NTFS files.
Disk scan, searching for partitions.
In this mode, R-Linux scans the entire disk or its part. Using a number of statistic and deterministic criteria known as IntelligentScan technology, it determines existing or existed partitions on the disk, and their file systems. It is also possible to add new partitions, by setting manually all required parameters.
A disk can be scanned through several successive scans, each with its own parameters. R-Linux accumulates the information from successive scans and keeps track of changes in the information obtained from different scans. The information obtained from the disc scan can be stored in a file. It may be loaded and processed later at any convenient time.
