ADRC Data Recovery Tools v1.0 contains a collection of DIY data recovery tools that supports a wide variety of drives (fixed drives or removable drives) and file systems (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS) for Windows 95/ 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003 server.
The software incorporates extremely simple GUI with novice users in mind. The software zooms in to do only critical data recovery or backup functions with minimum complexity. It gives you full control to undelete files. You can even undelete the files even after you have cleared the recycle bin. The software also supports disk to disk mage back up or disk cloning, export or import a backup disk image so you could back up and restore the system image and data at one go (in case you do not want to reinstall the operating system and application program). This function is especially useful if you need to clone disk with unknown file systems such as MAC or UNIX. It also allow you to copy files from hard disk or removable data media with bad sectors where normal windows copy will result in system hang. When bad sectors are found on the disk, the program will intelligently search the neighbouring sectors to determine the extent of bad blocks and mathematically calculate the number of retries needed to optimize the speed of copying. You can even edit, repair or restore your corrupted boot parameters (either FAT or NTFS boot sector type).
The program is designed to be compact "green-ware" without any installation. In fact, the whole program is less than 100 kb and you could stuff it anywhere (such as a floppy) and run the program from there to do the necessary recovery or backup. It is absolutely free
