Data Recovery Software

Definition - What does Data Recovery Software mean?

Data recovery software is a type of software that enables the recovery of corrupted, deleted or inaccessible data from a storage device.

This software reviews, scans, identifies, extracts and copies data from deleted, corrupted and formatted sectors or in a user-defined location within the storage device.

Techopedia explains Data Recovery Software

Data recovery software is primarily used by IT support staff and service providers. Data recovery software generally has access to the core architecture of a hard disk. It can extract data from corrupt storage devices or deleted files/folders by referring and accessing the file structure records/entries. Having access and control over file systems and structure, it can also un-format and repair hard drive partitions.

It can be used for both recovering user-stored and system-created data, files and folders. It can recover data from virtually any storage device including hard disks, flash drives, external storage cards, tape drives and more. Most data recovery software can perform data recovery on common file systems.
