Magic Partition Recovery can help you retrieve lost data even if you do not know much about extensions, partitions, file systems and the like. This is possible thanks to a user-friendly interface, based on wizards, as well as powerful data reconstruction algorithms working from under the hood.
This tool allows restoring not only accidentally deleted data but also complete partitions lost due to intentional formatting or malware attacks. It works correctly with different types of devices and even by mounting an ISO image of the source partition. The program supports NTFS and FAT file systems and it is a good idea to specify which of them you are trying to rescue data from. However, you should not worry if you do not know this because the application can conduct a content-aware scanning and discover it by itself. Two types of analysis are allowed: fast and thorough. As it always happens, a fast analysis takes less time but is also less accurate.
One of the main advantages of this tool is that it can rebuild damaged or absent file systems. This allows recovering all the contents of an inaccessible partition by creating a working version with all the files that were previously stored in it. Yet, in some cases, the new file structure may differ from the original.
Once the results are ready, you can filter them by file type and pick the ones you wish to recover. Then, you can easily save them to a local folder or a portable device, upload them to an FTP site, burn them to a disc or even create an image file.
In a nutshell, Magic Partition Recovery does an excellent job in recuperating lost files and even complete partitions. Unfortunately, the trial version can list all recoverable files but has some limits as to the number of files you can actually save. If you are interested in purchasing this product, you should know that it is available in three editions: Home, Office and Commercial, which also have different prices. It is a good thing that the tool has both an installable and a portable version.
