How does QUICK RECOVERY work?
QUICK RECOVERY is a data recovery software. It bypasses the operating system,
calculates the system parameters internally, and searches for data heuristically.
After a brief analysis QUICK RECOVERY shows the recoverable files/folders.
Why cannot QUICK RECOVERY recover 100% data from bad sector?
When bad sector occurs in the area where files are saved, that means the
magnetic layer on which data is saved is removed. That's why its impossible to
recover the data from bad sectors. But rest of the portion of the file lying on good
sectors will be saved using Quick Recovery. Depending upon the type/structure and
extend of recovered data file would be opened in the respective package.
Why cannot QUICK RECOVERY recover 100% data from cracked disks?
The cracked disks generally can not be rotated in the CD drive, so Quick Recovery
would not be able to access CD media. Hence recovery is not possible.
