Developer Dmitry Sidorov came up with the DMDE application for the advanced user who wants a powerful disk editing and data recovery tool. With the help of this tool you can recover lost data from FAT or NTFS formatted disks.
DMDE is available as a console for Linux, DOS, and Windows, and as a GUI for Windows. The GUI weighs in at 614KB and works with anything from Windows XP up to Windows 7. Just download the archive, extract its contents, and run the executable inside. After you select one of the three supported languages (English, Polish and Russian), you will be ready to start using DMDE.
The first thing you have to do when you open the DMDE application is select a physical or logical drive. Once you do that, the Partitions prompt shows up and displays info on the drive you selected. You can perform a FAT or NTFS search on the drive or open the volume. In case you can’t figure out how to use DMDE, check out the detailed manual in the Help menu or the manual on the application’s website.
If you are a novice, you will definitely want to check out the manual. The interface may seem simple enough to use and the truth of the matter is that it is easy to use. But this may trick you into thinking that it’s also easy to manage the functionality of this application, and, as I’ve already mentioned above, DMDE is meant for advanced users. You may have problems figuring out how to use the application to search for deleted files, lost partitions, how to reconstruct directory structures, how to clone a disk, or how to perform a RAID construction.
DMDE is not freeware, it is shareware. You can use the trial version for as long as you want, but you will have to content with limited functionality: the trial version only supports file recovery, it does not support directory and group recovery (directory tree recovery).
In the hands of an advanced user, DMDE’s worth as a properly good disk editing and data recovery tool shines through.
The application is portable, it does not have to be installed. Works with various Windows editions, from XP up to Windows 7. Recovers files, directory and directory trees. There’s a handy manual in the Help menu and on the application’s website. Features NTFS utilities and RAID constructor. You can use the trial version for as long as you want.
The trial version recovers files only.
