Includes digital picture retreival feature as well as automatic scan for partitioning information. Bad things happen. If you work around computers, you've probably seen this often- keyboards get broken, monitors stop working, CD-ROMs quit functioning properly. But none of these misfortunes come even close to finding out one day that your hard-drive is damaged.
Because while HDD may cost only sixty dollars, the data may we worth thousands, even millions of dollars. Unfortunately, hard-drives can and do get damaged periodically due to accidental reformatting, viruses, power outages, corrupted software, or employee's mischief. Fortunately, Zero Assumption Recovery (ZAR) can recover all your lost data.
ZAR works in read-only mode, which means that it does not modify the affected drive and thus there is no risk of incurring any additional damage.
A small drawback of this approach is that you have to have another data storage instrument (typically another HDD) available to transfer your data to. It is an essential tool to have at your disposal during critical situations.
