Regions

Top  Previous  Next

Processing large object may take a long time. Sometimes, only a smaller area of a disk needs to be scanned or searched for files. Such area is called a region. A region can be created on any object in the Restorer Ultimate's Device/Disk list.

Created regions can be scanned, and files on them can be recovered in the same way as from hard drives or logical disks.

Created regions can be deleted.

Note: Restorer Ultimate does not create anything real on the disk. Regions are virtual objects that do not affect actual data on the disk.

To create a region

1Right-click the object on the Device/Disk list and select Create Region on the shortcut menu,

or select the object and press the F4 key.
