Scan Disk (Physical Device)
A physical device is an installed hard disk, Flash card, external USB disk or any device that holds data. You may scan a device two ways:
- Scan for Deleted Partitions
- Scan unallocated space on disk to detect deleted or damaged partition.
- Scan for files by their signatures
Besides detecting partitions, Device Scan can detect files by their unique file signature. To let files by signature to be detected, select Detect files by their signatures options when performing Physical Disk Scan.Scanning time directly correlated with number of file signatures selected.
