This tool uses a recovery process that is non-destructive. The original source is kept safe. If the recovery analysis is approved by the user, it saves an entirely new copy of the image. As soon as the processing of damaged file is completed, one needs to look through the regenerated image and compare with the original to make sure the recovery is complete. The analysis phase uses techniques and heuristics learnt over time and usually is able to catch most problems. Generating recovered image areas then is quite simple. This tool is compatible with Windows 98 and above. This is a handy tool and a good product.
