I have covered several drives here in the past and to be fair some of these are quite the kit with James Bond ringing about them and this one is no different but it has a trick up its sleeve compared to others when it comes to the tech aspect.

Repair for Virtual Drives

If I cannot access my virtual drives due to corruption or other issues, will it be able to help? How can I be sure?

SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives is an effective alternative to data loss. It can repair many types of virtual drive damage, and it has excellent security features. To find out whether it will be able to treat your virtual drive, you can download the free demo, which provides you with a list of recoverable files.

Please note that this program is designed for full virtual drives, not for specific files. If you encounter a single corrupt file, please browse through our other software tools to find an appropriate utility.

What are the features and limitations of the free demo?

The demo version of SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives will recover your file structure, but it will not recover any files to a usable state. You will be able to see whether the program will work on your virtual drive and decide whether or not to purchase the full version. Individual files are replaced with text files, which have the extensions of their original counterparts.

Before running either version of it, please back up your virtual drives.

If a file does not show up in the demo recovery output, is it permanently unrecoverable?

Unfortunately, the full version of SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives will not be able to recover any files that do not show up in the sample recovery provided by the demo version.

Both the demo version and the full version of SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives cause size discrepancies; recovered files seem smaller than the original files. Why does this occur?

SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives may not be able to read some severely damaged areas of your virtual drive. When this occurs, the application bypasses the damaged areas, rendering them as blank space in the output. This is normal and does not necessarily mean that the restored files will be damaged or unusable.

However, severe corruption can affect the usability of your files, and you may need to use another recovery utility to treat individual corrupted files (all of our products have free demos to let you make an effective recovery plan).

The demo version of SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives does not attempt to recover individual files, instead replacing them with text files. These placeholders are usually much smaller than the target files, so the demo output is very small compared to the overall size of your virtual drive (or the files stored on the virtual drive).

How can I choose the right product license?

Read our Licensing page for information regarding our current license scheme.

If I want to run SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives on a large number of files, can I access the command line or create batch files?

Yes. This is an option for Service and Enterprise users, but not for Standard license holders.

What are the command line calls for SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives?

Do not use angle brackets, and use the ‘?’ and ‘*’ symbols (without quotes) as patterns for individual symbols and symbol groups, respectively. The call is as follows:

mhv.exe “”

Always check that you have created the output directory before you attempt to recover virtual drives through the command line, and back up all of your corrupted virtual drives before running it.
