Scanning large objects may take a long time. Sometimes, only a smaller area of a disk needs to be scanned or searched for files. Such area is called a region . A region can be created on any object in the R-Linux 's Drives panel.

Created regions can be scanned, and files on them can be recovered in the same way as from hard drives or partitions.

Created regions can be deleted.

Note: R-Linux does not create anything real on the disk. Regions are virtual objects that do not affect actual data on the disk.
