The founder of DIY DataRecovery.nl has over 20 years
experience in low level disk structures and disk utilities.
He became acquainted with low level disk structures while
working for PowerQuest (acquired by Symantec), best known for
creating award winning software like PartitionMagic,
DriveImage and Lost & Found.
He developed several MS-DOS and Windows data recovery
utilities and a disk defragmentation program. Originally DIY
DataRecovery.nl was a hobby project.
Joep: "Those hobby days were magical. Discovering how
hard disks actually stored data, this layer of raw data
hidden beneath a world of pretty windows and icons. It was
Matrix like (the movie). It was awesome!"
Q & A
Lost access to your data and getting this message:
“chkdsk cannot be run on the drive The type of the file system
is RAW. CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.”
DIY DataRecovery.nl: It is probably a good thing chkdsk does not
run. Chkdsk is not a data recovery tool. It repairs file systems. It
does not recover data.
At some point the file system may be 'healthy' while your data is
gone, actually overwritten in the process of repairing the file
system. Once overwritten data can not be recovered.
There are two ways to approach this:
We have been able to repair this hundreds of times using
DiskPatch. The boot sector of the volume was damaged to such a
degree that the file system driver was unable to locate meta data
such as the FAT or MFT. Using DiskPatch the boot sector was rebuilt,
and the data was accessible again.
If the damage is more severe and not limited to the boot sector,
repair is impossible and data should be extracted from the damaged
volume using iRecover (Data Recovery for Windows and Linux module).
