Software to recover data from Linux disks under Windows

Losing files or damaging the Linux file systems on which they are stored is a common problem faced day in and day out not only by private users but also by many large companies. Unintentional emptying of the recycle garbage can or a folder with obsolete data can take away other, important documents that were left there for some reason. And the failure of a storage device can put all stored files at risk. So you should always know what to do in a critical situation.

Recovering data from Linux disks with the program:

Starus Linux Restore™ 2.6

The Starus Linux Restore application is feature-rich and offers a wide range of options for working with Linux file systems. With the help of the program you can not only restore damaged/deleted files, but also bring the damaged disk structure back to life.

Starus Linux Restore supports all existing Linux file systems and works on many popular distributions such as Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, Red Hat, MX Linux, Manjaro, Linux Mint, Solus and others.

Data recovery software for Linux disks

One solution for many Linux disk problems

Linux Restore is a versatile program that can single-handedly replace many other utilities that focus on a single, specific task. Thanks to this feature, you no longer need to spend hours “googling” in search of highly specialized software that not only does not simplify the task, but also significantly stretches the time invested in finding a solution.

  • Formatting removable drives.
    Formatting or changing the file system of a removable disk inevitably leads to the loss of all the documents stored on it. Therefore, if you have not backed up your files and they are lost, Starus Linux Restore comes in handy.
  • Reinstalling the operating system.
    One of the main reasons for losing files is reinstalling the Linux operating system. The risks are exacerbated by the fact that even an upgrade, a change from one OS version to another, can lead to deletion of files, either due to a possible error or to incompatibility (as in the case of changing from XFS+ to APFS in MacOS).
  • Losing files on NAS.
    Most server storage devices use Ext2, Ext3 and Ext4 file systems. Linux Restore easily recovers data from NAS devices from well-known manufacturers: Dell, HP, Seagate, Western Digital, Synology, LenovoEMC, Buffalo, and many others.
  • Malware.
    The Linux operating system is less susceptible to virus attacks than its Windows counterpart. Nevertheless, malware is still capable of infiltrating your PC and damaging important files. The program allows you to prevent such unwanted consequences.
  • File access in Windows.
    The Windows operating system does not support Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, ReiserFS, XFS, or UFS file systems. To read them, you need to install special plug-ins which are hard to find and, at the same time, the reliability of such utilities has not been confirmed by anyone. Starus Linux Restore solves this problem and gives its users access to Linux file systems inside Windows.

Program Features

Starus Linux Restore works with file systems from all popular Linux and Unix operating system distributions: Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, ReiserFS, XFS, and UFS. In addition, the program supports cross-platform systems such as FAT and exFAT, which makes it much easier if you work with Windows or mobile devices at the same time.
