Diagnostics of logical structures of FAT and NTFS file systems.

This function is the program Fomsoft Data Recovery r is targeted at a wide range of users, scans a given logical or physical disk device and extracts the file structures of the NTFS and FAT file systems from it. During the scanning procedure, text diagnostic files are created that contain detailed information structures belonging to the selected file system type.
These files can be viewed in any text editor. Analyzing the contents of the found file structures can be estimated The degree of complexity of the problem and plan further actions to gain access to the right user files and folders.
In many cases, the loss of information associated with the disruption of the procedures for organizing binary access to data based on index files, or not large-scale read failures of individual sectors, it is sufficient to use information from the received diagnostic files to recover the lost data with your own hands, using the function program «Data recovery»..
After the analysis process is completed, the program proposes to transfer to the laboratory Fomsoft Laboratories query for a free consultation on the situation.
Perform preliminary diagnostics of the status of the problem disk and the information located on it, protects the user from actions of dishonest "experts" on data recovery. Who skillfully use that without prior diagnosis, determine the real cost of work to restore information is impossible. Therefore, they call Estimated price from several rubles, which the user is willing to pay. At the same time they are very kind offer "free diagnostics" and even "free courier", thus taking a problem carrier actually a hostage. Given that the gullible user has no idea, even the preliminary, media state, subsequently the user is informed that in his, very complex case , the cost of data recovery will be much greater called earlier. If the user refuses to pay the named amount, they return the media with the destroyed information , or A specially disabled drive . Declaring that with such a very complex problem can cope only they. As a result, if the information is very important to the user, he will have to pay without knowing that the real problem was not as complex as the "tough experts" claimed to him.

Performing initial diagnostics with your own hands, allows the user to avoid the problems described above.

After analyzing the status of the media, the user receives an exhaustive answer to the following questions:
  • How does the operating system see the medium as a physical device:
    • The size of all media connected to the computer.
    • For external and internal hard drives:
      • Serial number, hard disk;
      • Firmware version;
      • The name of the model, hard drive;
  • Which logical drives are located on this particular physical disk. For each logical drive, the following is displayed:
    • The type of the file system, if it is defined;
    • The letter of the logical drive allocated by the Windows file system;
    • The partition capacity in MB;
    • The start address (LBA) of the logical partition on the physical disk.
  • Are there bad sectors in the sector and where are they located?
  • During the scan, the program finds the file structures and generates them into diagnostic files:
    • Initial, boot sectors of logical disks (BOOT-sectors);
    • The main file table entries (MFT) and its individual records FILE Record;
    • The initial sectors of the file allocation tables (FAT);
    • Elements of TOCs
Looking at the disk selection menu for scanning, the user sees that the drive is not detected by the operating system, that it is physically defective and does not need to be "treated in a clean room", which is really expensive. In most practical cases, data recovery can be done manually or remotely, by resorting to our services we have it much faster, safer, safer and cheaper than in the case of access to services other data recovery laboratories.
The program helps end-users, without leaving home to perform a preliminary analysis of the state on your own and get a free consultation.

The name of the file The structures to be placed in the file
FomsoftDiskAnalyzerDEF.txtAddresses of system files $AttrDef and the date when this logical disk was formatted. Using the address of this record, the program FomsoftRecoveryNTFS can independently reconstruct the directory tree of the corresponding logical disk (partition).
FomsoftDiskAnalyzerSTRING.txt Filtered fragments of the Master File Table (MFT) record fragments.
  • The initial (BOOT) sectors of logical disks (partitions).
  • The first MFT table entry, the $MFT system file .
  • A copy of the first entry in the MFT table, the system file $MFTMirr .
  • MFT records describing the system file $AttrDef .
  • The initial (BOOT) sectors of logical disks (partitions).
  • The first MFT table entry, the $MFT system file .
  • A copy of the first entry in the MFT table, the system file $MFTMirr .
  • MFT records describing the system file $AttrDef .
  • FILE records describing files filtered according to the search filter settings.
FomsoftDiskAnalyzerMAXI.txt All the elements of the file structures detected by the program on the specified disk.
FomsoftDiskAnalyzerDISKI.txt List of physical and logical disks located on them.
FomsoftDiskAnalyzerERROR.txt The list of addresses of bad sectors and system error codes.

If the user does not want to risk valuable data for him, or to deal with the problem on his own, he can to consult with specialists of the data recovery laboratory Fomsoft . To do this, you must give the program permission to transfer to Fomsoft request for consultation. The laboratory specialists will perform the analysis and report their conclusion by e-mail about the complexity and possibility of data recovery. This analysis is performed within 24 hours free .

Select the disk to search for the remaining elements of the file structures on it.

After selecting the main menu item, the program displays a list of disk devices and their parameters.

The disk selection window for analyzing file structures.
Fig. 39. The disk selection window for analyzing file structures.

To perform an analysis of the presence of file structures, you need to specify the program:
  • For physical disks - the serial number of the hard drive.
  • For logical disks, the alphanumeric identifier of the logical disk.
After selecting a disk, the program calculates the start and end addresses of the analyzed area. User can install these parameters at their discretion, indicating their own, but consistent values.

Setting the search filter.

By clicking the " Search Filter " button, you can view and refine the filtering and selection options names of files, information about which is placed in the diagnostic files, Fig. 40.

Setting the search filter.

The user can change the filter settings at his / her discretion:
  • Install or uncheck the files for certain extensions, information about which will be disturbed in the analytic analysis file FomsoftDiskAnalyzerUSER.txt .
  • Enable or disable the search for deleted and existing (current) files.
  • Enable search for additional user extensions whose values are set by the user.
  • Search for files by templates (names beginnings).
  • Select the file system type.
When writing a file FomsoftDiskAnalyzerSTRING.txt containing the chains of the Main File Table (MFT) fragments, The minimum size of the FILE Record record chain is set. If the detected chain size is less than the set value, it is ignored. This option is relevant for disks running under the operating system Windows 10, as in this file system create auxiliary chains of FILE Record records that duplicate the main records of the MFT table.

Set the folder to write data.

By clicking on the symbolic image of the folder (Figure 39,), you can change the location of the folder where the analysis files will be placed.

Set the name of the folder where the analysis files will be written.

The user can continue the work of the program by clicking the OK button, with each failure a corresponding error message is displayed. If the button is not pressed, the work will continue without user notification of a failure. The CANCEL response will terminate the program.
In some complex failed cases, a situation arises when the firmware of the hard disk does not have time Process the failure for the time set by the operating system. At the same time, the operating system fixes hard drive failure, i.e. its fatal malfunction. But after a while hard The disc becomes ready to execute commands, and resending the interrupted command allows you to continue it work. However, there are situations when the disk management firmware hangs, then you need to disable power, and after a while again to turn it on. In the event of a similar situation the program displays a message on the screen, and suggests a way to continue working. Depending on the port to which the device being diagnosed is connected, various messages are output, presented in the pictures below
