Work with scan results
It can take a long time to run a default disk scan or a low level disk scan. Because you are dealing with a large volume of information, you might not be able to review all the data in one session.
So that you do not have to scan a partition again, you can save and re-use valuable scan results. You can save an entire Scan Results branch or make a separate save for each disk scan or save all scans set for a particular device.
Scan results are saved with the file extension .scaninfo.
Save Scan Results
- To save the entire Scan Results branch, select the branch.
- To save a device node, select it under Scan Results.
- Right-click the selected node and click Save Scan Result from the context menu. The Save Scan Result dialog appears with the default path and a suggested file name.
- To change the file path, browse to a different folder.
- To change the file name, enter a name in the file name field.
- Click Save.
Load Scan Results
- To open the Load Scan Results dialog, do one of the following:
- From the File menu, click
- Right-click the logical drive node and click Load Scan Result from the context menu.
- If there is a Scan Results branch in the Recovery Explorer tree, right-click the Scan Results branch or right-click a Scan Results node and click Load Scan Result from the context menu.
- Browse to the folder that contains the scan result file and select the file.
- Click Open.
The data from the scan results file appears in a Scan Results node in the Recovery Explorer tree.
Remove Scan Results
Data in the Scan Results branch is copied from the original physical device. You may remove any node – including detected partitions - from the Scan Results branch without harming the data on the original physical device.
To remove scan results:
- To remove the entire Scan Results branch, select the branch.
- To remove a device node, select it under Scan Results.
- Right-click the selected node and click Remove Scan Result from the context menu.
The selected node is removed from the Recovery Explorer tree.
