After bringing the failed drive back to life, as a data recovery professional, you know now you need to recover the damaged file system by using file system recovery software; and maybe you know also you need to do a disk imaging in order to work from an accurate, stable hard drive image.
+
[[Category:Disk_imaging]]
 
+
Unfortunately, traditional disk imaging tools and methods are designed for and work on good HDDs only, not the patient HDDs that are unstable or inaccessible because of media defects and instable head, which are common challenges of Stage 2 in practice. Even more, with those traditional imaging tools, the time involved and the ordinary user-level repeated-read access to the media bring a risk of damaging the disk and head, making data lost irretrievable.
+
 
+
But now there's a better way: The disk probing equipment included in the Data Compass suite bypassing the disk-level problems such as multiple bad sectors, damaged surfaces, malfunctioning head assembly, or corrupted servo info, In the meantime you can use the default software or any other defined software you have been familiar with (R-studio, Winhex, any) to perform file recovery. Through the Data Compass, problem drives will become intact hard drives and ready for file recovery attempts..

== What can Data Compass do? ==
+
 
+
 
+
Data recovery from physically damaged HDDs is what Data Compass designed for.
+
 
+
    * Data recovery from HDDs with severe multiple BAD sectors, which appear because of platter surface scratch or malfunction or instability of the magnetic head assembly (MHA).
+
 
+
    * Data recovery from HDDs that start to produce "clicking" sounds, which may be caused by corruption of sector servo labels or a MHA malfunction. If some heads or surfaces are damaged it is possible (before installation of MHA replacement) to create a copy of data using the remaining good surfaces or drive heads.
+
 
+
    * Availability of tools for logical analysis of FAT and NTFS file systems in the software complex allows data recovery in cases, when a drive is functional and only logical data structure is corrupted.
+
 
+
    * When used with malfunctioning drives, Data Compass complex often allows selective extraction of data necessary to your customers without reading all data from a drive ("recover data by file" without creating a complete disk image) saving a lot of time. In some cases, when drive malfunctions cause constant self-damage (like scratches on disks or instable MHA) these are the only means to accomplish this task. With the ShadowDisk technology adopted, users need not to worry about the drive degradation problem.

SalvationDATA upgraded Data Compass and HD Doctor into the next generation intelligent all-in-one forensic data recovery tool: DRS (Data Recovery System), which can help you acquire and recover data from both good and damaged storage media like HDD simply and easily. Having integrated with main functions as disk diagnostics, disk imaging, file recovery, file carving, firmware recovery, reporting, write protection and hash calculation, more functional features as fragment recovery, RAIDx automatic reallocation, break-point recovery, USB3.0 support have been included in DRS as well. Especially for the workflow of digital forensics, without external write blocker, read-only port has been embedded in DRS to ensure that data has not been tampered. Besides, DRS can generate and output detailed reports so that the investigation process can be clearly documented. DRS Preview is the software version which grants you access to almost all fascinating features of DRS including multi-tasking, except firmware recovery, advanced imaging, and features related physical status of HDD. http://www.salvationdata.com/drs-data-recovery-system.html
