Scan a logical drive — low level scan

Low Level Scan results are displayed under a Scan Results node in Recovery Explorer. All found files are grouped by their file extension. You may rescan logical drives as many times you want. All previous results will be lost and each scan result may vary.

A Low Level Scan is a more complex process and will take more time than a Quick Scan. You may save Low Level Scan results in a separate file and reuse the results in a new session.

To apply Low Level Scan to physical device or a logical drive:

  1. In the Recovery Explorer tree pane or in the list pane, select a physical device or a logical drive.
  2. To open the Scan Logical Drive dialog box, do one of the following:
    • From the Recovery Explorer toolbar, click Default Scan.
    • Right-click the selected logical drive and click Scan from the context menu.
  3. Choose Low Level Scan.
  4. To modify list of file signatures to be searched:
    • Click Options. The Select File Signatures dialog box appears.
    • To restrict the search parameters, clear the check box next to each file type that you do not want to search for.
    • Click OK.
  5. View the list of file signatures that will be reported in the File Signatures text box.
  6. Click Scan! The Processing… dialog box appears.
  7. To display scanning events and progress details, click Details.
  8. To terminate the scan process, click Stop at any time. Results may be not accurate or complete.
  9. After the scan completes, scan results appear in a Scan Results node in Recovery Explorer.

To save Low Level Scan results:

  1. Under the Scan Results node, right-click a scanned logical drive and click Save Scan Result from the context menu. The Save Scan Result dialog box appears.
  2. Browse to the folder where you want to save the file.
  3. In File name, you may use the suggested file name, or you may change it.
  4. Click Save.

Save a scan results file to a physical drive that is different from the drive that contains the original files.
