UFS Explorer Technician

Compared to UFS Explorer Professional Recovery, it has a number of additional features:

* Access to data on AIX (Legacy JFS1, JFS2), Xinous OpenServer (EAFS, HTFS, DTFS), Veritas Storage Foundation, HP-UX, etc. (VxFS4, VxFS6, VxFS7), Urive (NxFS)
* Work with QNAP NAS implementing automated tiering (Qtier technology)
* Automatic RAID reconstruction for Dell EqualLogic, IBM AIX (CAPI RAID), etc.
* Direct low-level interaction with SCSI devices using a dedicated SCSI command tool*
* Embedded means for secure data erasure (overwriting the existing data on the drive with zeroes)
* Extended report on files and folders with the possibility of file integrity control (hash value, metadata test)
* Obtaining information on the allocation of file fragments
* Expandability through the use of additional plugins (for data recovery from Dell Equal Logic SAN and others)

But there are the following restrictions:
* Limited-term license (1 year) issued to a single PC
* Windows installation only
