General-purpose data recovery for
  • formatted drives, both external and internal
  • "RAW filesystem"
  • deleted files
  • the case of MBR damage
  • broken RAID array
  • lost digital photos
Build 2080
for Windows
from Windows 7 to Windows 10


You must accept the terms of the ZAR Tools License Agreement if you are going to use our software. 
ZAR X system requirements and demo version restrictions
  • Windows 7 to Windows 10
  • Additional media to recover data to (never save files to the volume you are recovering, for this may cause further damage to the volume!)
  • Damaged drive must be physically functional. It should be at least detected by BIOS. Multiple bad sectors can be handled (but the data they contained is lost forever), but controller failures are beyond any software repair.

Supported filesystems:

  • FAT16 and FAT32
  • NTFS
  • ext2/3/4 series (Linux, used in NAS devices)
  • XFS (Linux, used in NAS devices)
  • Digital image recovery function operates regardless of the filesystem type.

Supported RAID layouts:

  • RAID0, RAID10, and RAID5 with any number of member disks.
  • It is possible to recover Windows Server software RAID0 and RAID5 if the RAID members occupy the entire physical disk.

There are the following limitations in the demo version of ZAR X:

  1. Only (up to) four folders can be recovered in the demo version of our data recovery software.
  2. The demo version is unable to load the scan result file. However, it does save these files to avoid having to rescan the disk when you got the full version.
  3. In digital image recovery mode program operates as freeware with no functional limitations. List of known compatible digital camera models and image formats is available at the known camera compatibility list.
Specialized video recovery software
I have developed Klennet Carver, a separate video and photo recovery software, which recovers fragmented video files (MOV, MP4, AVI, and DHAV) and fragmented image files (JPEG, CR2, and NEF). It works with fragmented deleted files on memory cards when most all other software, including ZAR, produces partial or unusable recovered files. It is however much slower and requires good CPU and lots of RAM to work.
