Recover data from Ext2FS/Ext3FS file system for free? Is this possible? Yes, please continue reading! R-Linux is one free functional file recovery utility for the Ext2FS/Ext3FS file system used in the Linux OS and several Unixes. R-Linux uses InteligentScan technology and flexible parameter settings that give you real control over the fastest data recovery ever seen. It recovers files from existing logical disks even when file records are lost. However, there is no any network capabilities or ability to reconstruct damaged RAIDs or stripe sets in R-Linux.

What does R-Linux do?

* Removed by virus attack, power failure or system crash;
* After the partition with the files was reformatted, even for different file system;
* When the partition structure on a disk was changed or damaged. In this case, R-Linux can scan the disk trying to find previously existing partitions and restore files from found partitions.

* From disks with bad sectors. In this case, R-Linux can first copy the entire disk or its part into an image file and then process the image file. This is especially useful when new bad sectors are constantly appearing on the disk, and remaining information must be immediately saved.
* Recovers files on damaged or deleted partitions.
