File Scavenger screenshotFile Scavenger can restore documents that have been accidentally removed offered that recovery is attempted before the documents are forever overwritten by new data. File Scavenger is compatible with both dynamic and basic disks, NTFS compression, alternate information streams, Unicode filenames, sparse files, etc. Except in serious cases, both the folder and file path leading to the file can be restored.

File Scavenger can also restore documents from a corrupted or reformatted volume even when the partition has been removed and its initial place and size is unknown. File Scavenger can scan the whole physical hard disk to search for traces of broken volumes.

File Scavenger uses complex algorithms to work on drives with bad sectors and badly broken partitions. It can be installed on a hard disk or run from a portable storage instrument such as a removable drive, memory card, or CD.
Files can only be recovered if the disk zones allocated to the documents have not been overwritten by new information. All restored files should be validated for the integrity of the restored data.


- The 64-bit variant eliminates the restriction on the number of files the application can scan, provided that enough physical memory is available.
- Working with disk number changes when loading a session file. Windows adds a disk number to a physical drive, such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc.
- New option to make a log for a long scan.
