  • Findbad
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

Locates bad sectors. Also, the program can write sectors containing ascii hex F6 characters to bad sectors. This may repair the sectors, but the previous content in the bad sectors is lost. If the disk does not contain any data you want to keep, it may be better to erase the disk using the disk manufacturer tool for that.

  • Platform: WinOther
  • FindBSD
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

The FindBSD application was designed to be a small tool that will search for BSD disklabels. If the disk is larger than supported by BIOS, the supported part is examined.

Usage:
FindBSD [ ]
1, 2, 3 or 4.

The report can be written to a file. Add the filename to the command line. File extension must be .txt. To append to current report file, use +.

  • Platform: WinOther

  • Price: 0.00

The FindDoc application was designed to be a small tool that searches for DOC and XLS files without file system usage. Copied files will only be correct if they are not fragmented. A name is generated from the location on the disk. Files are copied to current directory.

Usage:

FindDoc [ ] [.txt]

Options:

[doc] Attempt to copy DOC files.
[xls] Attempt to copy XLS files.
[maxkb ] Maximum file size in KB. Default is 8192 KB.

Usage:
Findext2 [ ] [all] [skip0]

Disks are numbered from 1.

By default the first superblock found in each partition is shown. The 'all' option shows all superblocks found. The 'skip0' option skips superblock number 0. This may limit the number of false positive findings.

The report can be written to a file. Add the filename to the command line. File extension must be .txt. To append to current report file, use +.

  • Platform: WinOther
  • FindJPG
  • License: Freeware

The program does not contain a procedure to establish the exact file size, but will consider a picture finished when the next picture is met, or the max size reached. A name is generated from the location on the disk. Pictures are copied to current directory.

Usage:
FindJPG [ ] [.txt]

Options:
[maxkb ] Maximum picture size in KB. Default is 1024 KB.
[maxbad ] Exit when bad sectors are met.

  • Platform: WinOther

Free NTFS data recovery tool. Lists the content of an NTFS partition, or copies files.

In Windows 95/98/ME library files from Findpart should be in the same directory as findntfs.exe.

Use version 2.11 for Windows 7 NTFS partitions.
In order to be able to use FindNTFS, you will need to know the cylinder, head, sector address of the partition, which in most cases can be found using the Findpart utility. Use the "Start CHS" numbers.

Example: Make a file listing for the NTFS partition (ID 07) at disk 2, cylinder 0, head 1, sector 1:
findntfs 2 0 1 1 files files.txt
To copy the directory that in files.txt has the number 117, and subdirectories to that directory:
findntfs 2 0 1 1 copy 117
Or to just copy all found files, including system files:
findntfs 2 0 1 1 showsys copy

  • Findword
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

The Findword application was designed to be a small command line tool that searches a disk for occurences of a word or sentence.

Findword
Example: Findword 1 0 260 MONEY fw.txt
Example: Findword 2 512 900 "dinner table"
Example: Findword 3 0 100 .XLS#00

Searches for 4 KB blocks that contains the string specified. If the string contains space use "" Not printable characters can be entered as # followed by two hexadecimal digits.
Occurences that crosses a 4 KB boundary will not be found with this version. The search is CASE SENSITIVE. Only the first occurence of the word in each block will be printed.

1, 2, 3 or 4.

The report can be written to a file. Add the filename to the command line. File extension must be .txt. To append to current report file, use +....

  • Platform: WinOther
  • FP.SYS
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

DOS/Windows 95/98 device driver that adds read-only drive letters for lost FAT partitions. Version 1.5 adds support for FAT12 partitions and circumvents an Ontrack Disk Manager bug or feature.

  • Platform: WinOther
  • GB32
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

The GB32 application was designed to examine if a 32 GB problem is present for a disk larger than 32 GB. The program also will detect some of the DOS and Windows 128 GB problems.

Usage:
GB32 []

Damage from the problems can occur when data are written more than 32 GB or 128 GB into the disk. If a problem is present, writing anything to the disk may cause further damage.

The 32 GB test result can be expected to be correct if the disk is partitioned, since otherwise test matches could be normal. Problems may exist, even if they are not detected by this program. Disks are numbered from 1. Log file extension must be .txt.

  • Platform: WinOther
  • Pqrp
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

Examines PQRP partitions that were originally FAT32 partitions. One damage type, which is not recognized by Pqrp, is found by Chsdir, using the usual command line with the addition of the keyword 'adjustclusters'.

If you have a Pqrp data recovery problem with a FAT or NTFS partition, I suggest you initially do using the Findpart program:

findpart all fp.txt

and mail me the file fp.txt. For FAT partitions you also can do (example for disk 1): "pqrp 1 pq.txt" or in Windows "findpart pqrp 1 pq.txt". Do nothing else. The partition table editing method should only be used if it is known that the Pqrp partition is internally OK. In other words: Do NOT use the ptedit program.

  • Platform: WinOther
  • ReadExt2
  • License: Freeware
  • Price: 0.00

The ReadExt2 application was designed to be a free Ext2 / Ext3 recovery tool. Lists the content of an Ext2 / 3 partition, or copies files. To use ReadExt2 you will need to know the cylinder address of a superblock from the partition.

The location can be found using the FindExt2 tool. If the superblock address as example is CHS 5021/82/2 on disk 2, the command to browse and copy files is:
readext2 2 5021 5021

Usage:
ReadExt2 [ ] [ filelistonly | copy ] [ timeadjust ] [ .txt ]

Disks are numbered from 1.

After the search, a file browser is shown, unless option 'filelistonly' or 'copy' is used. Files are copied to current directory, and to subdirectories to current directory.

The program uses the first ext2/ext3 superblock found in the cylinder area. This version can show up...
