  2. Open File recovery dialog

    After files are selected in a view, click Recover button in view's toolbar or use Recover command from context menu or use Ctrl+R shortcut.

  3. Confirm recovery location

    File Recovery dialog - simplified

    Naming options

    Use original file names
    Names of detected files will be preserved only if no file with the same name already exists in the destination directory.
    Rename files
    All files will be renamed by their given specified file root name and added enumeration ID. File extensions remain intact.

    Existing files conflict resolution

    Unique file name
    If a file with the same name exists in the destination folder, a file with a unique name will be generated to avoid overwriting.
    Ask before overwrite
    If a file with the same name already exists in the destination folder, the application will ask the user for a specific action to take.
    Overwrite without prompt
    All files will be overwritten in the event if they already exist in the destination folder.
    Skip existing files
    If a file with the same name exists in the destination folder, recovery of a new file will be skipped.

    Additional Options

    Create Folder Structure
    When this option is selected files will be recovered with their original folder structures e.g. original folder hierarchy as it was on the storage source. In case files were organized in groups (date, file extensions, or by an associated application) then such groupings will be created by the folder structure in the location where the files will be recovered to.
    Recover Name Streams
    With this option on, files will be recovered with their original name streams.
    Browse destination folder
    Opens the destination folder in the default OS file browser.
    Detailed Log
    With this option on, the log file contains more detailed information about recovered files.
    Use Disk Lock
    The source disk will be locked during the file recovery process. It will be unlocked as soon as the process is completed.
    Ignore Disk Lock Errors
    With this option on, the file recovery process will continue even if locking of the source device fails.
    Ignore Write Errors
    No error messages will appear and all write errors will be ignored during the recovery process.
    Ignore Read Errors
    No error messages will appear and all read errors will be ignored during the recovery process.
  4. Observe recovery process

    Observe recovery process and verify recovered files in destination folder. Repeat recovery process if necessary.
