    Hi

    What do you think are:

    a) the best data recovery tools
    b) best tools to REPAIR defect FATs etc.

    For
    a) I think the R-Studio Editions are the best ones. Anyone knows better tools?

    For
    b) I don't know, actually. Any recommendations?

    Please let me know urgently. One of my HD partitions died (Window said 'Master Table defect') but I like to get not only those data back but REPAIR that Master Table as well. CHKDSK does NOT work on it.

    It is not drive c but on another's drive 3rd partition

    Thanks
    R.

    For my experience R-Studio does very well in recovering your data, better then all others I've tried (can't remember all of them).

    You should imediatelly recover all that's possible to a spare HDD and only then try to recover your MFT.

    Hi Orion,
    Your experience with R-Studio is in line with my ones. I tried many other ones and they all could not meet R-Studio's excellence performance. R-Studio can't recover everything, but it does its best in the given circumstance.

    Still, which is the best tool to try to recover/repair the MFT table? R-Studio does not do it.

    R.

    Hey,

    Same thing happened to me last week. My 2nd hard drive went offline because of 3 bad sectors. I just couldn't make the primary connect to it. It was just a repository for all my data.

    Anyway, I found a tool that saved all my data. The trick is to install that tool onto another hard drive and then once it sees your data you save them onto the new one. And voilĂ ...

    I made a thread about it:

    It takes time though. But I recovered almost 45 Gbs...

    Enjoy!!!

    djedje70, could you compare your tool (EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional) with the one from R-Studio? The concept is the same. Retrieve the crashed data while on another drive.

    I will look into EASEUS, never bad to know several good tools

    Thanks

    R.

    To be honest, the one I provided is the only one I ever used. But it got all my data back.
    + it's free. No need to shell out the $89.

    i was working for a datarecovery company.

    if nothing like heads or electonic is broken, it's just like a mix between tools.
    some get stuff, some don't
    some get this, others get another stuff.

    just give it a shot with all the stuff available and limit the damage.
    for the next time, just get an external 1tb disc and get yourself some auto backup function. so it's less possible to lose your stuff.

    raid itself doesn't really protect much. there were just too much raids coming in to make good money off. just my tip though.

    so get a disc, there're not expensive anyways.
