File Scavenger Version 3 is a file "undelete" and data recovery utility for Windows XP , Windows Vista , Windows Server 2003 , Windows 2000, Windows NT and Windows ME/98/95. File Scavenger can recover files that have been accidentally deleted (including files removed from the Recycle Bin, in a DOS window, from a network drive, from Windows Explorer with the SHIFT key held down) provided that recovery is attempted before the files are permanently overwritten by new data. File Scavenger supports both basic and dynamic disks, NTFS compression, alternate data streams, sparse files, Unicode filenames, etc. Except in severe cases, both the file and the folder path leading to the file can be recovered. English, German, Japanese and French versions are available.


File Scavenger can also recover files from a reformatted or corrupted volume even when the volume has been deleted and its original position and size are unknown. File Scavenger can scan an entire physical hard drive to look for traces of defunct volumes.

File Scavenger uses advanced algorithms to handle disks with bad sectors and badly corrupted partitions. It can be installed on a hard drive or run from a portable storage device such as a memory stick, removable drive, CD or floppy disk. To run File Scavenger, you must log on as a system administrator to the computer where data recovery is intended.

Files can only be restored if the disk areas allocated to the files have not been overwritten by new data. All recovered files should be validated for the integrity of the recovered data.
* Significantly improved recovery of corrupted FAT and FAT32 volumes. The FAT and FAT32 file systems are commonly used on flash memory cards.
* Improved recovery of the folder structure of NTFS volumes.
* Reduced virtual memory requirement which allows File Scavenger to scan volumes with several millions of files.
* Support for the latest generation of hard drives with 4KB sector size (3 TB and up).
* Support for very long filenames (over 260 characters).
* Simplified licensing.
* Reconstruction of NAS devices.
* Reconstruction of spanned volumes over RAID volumes and RAID 50.
* Limited support for Ext2, Ext3, HFS, HFS+, HFSX and UFS1. These functions will be incrementally improved with each revision within version 4 with no additional upgrade fees.
