Four scenario options in step 1

Q: What are the four options I am presented with when starting GetDataBack for FAT or GetDataBack for NTFS?

A: These options change the settings that are used when scanning the drive for data. Lets go into each one in detail.

Option #1 – I don’t know use default settings:

This option leaves all settings turned off. It does not recover deleted files, lost files, duplicate file names, and it does not do an excessive search.

Option #2 – Systematic file system damage, e.g. Format or FDisk:

This turns on none of the options as well.

Option #3 – Sustained file system damage, e.g. a new operating system was installed

This turns on the option to recover deleted files and allows duplicate file names to be recovered.

Options #4 – I want to recover deleted files

This also turns on the option to recover deleted files and allows duplicate file names to be recovered.

You can find all of these options by clicking on Tools>Options.

You can then click the environment tab for additional options.

Stayed tune for the next post. We will go over what each of the options really do.
