2.2.2. Extended Disk Scan.

Extended Disk Scan is to be engaged if any of the following is true:

  • Scanned Unallocated areas reveals nothing
  • You suspect that partitions have been damaged
  • New partitions have been created and used on top of deleted partitions

Figure 2-7 Perform Extended Disk Scan

After these steps, there is an example:

  1. In the Detected Drive screen, position the cursor to the defective drive.
  2. On the keyboard, press [Ctrl+Enter]. The utility begins scanning the drive surface, ignoring existing partitions and drives.
  3. When a drive or partition is detected, a screen dialog will suggest adding it to the partition table.

Caution: Pay attention to the size of each detected partition and add only those partitions about which you are certain of the contents. Failure to attend to this detail might result in unrecoverable data. Once a detected partition is added to the partition table, the amount of space equal to the listed partition size will not be scanned further.

Example of Extended Disk Scan.

An original disk contained three partitions with the following sizes: 3GB, 1GB and 4GB. The second and third partitions have been deleted and two new partitions have been introduced with these specifications: 2GB and 3GB. (see figure below)

Figure 2-8 New Partitions Created.

After the new partitions have been created, you recall some important data on the old 4 GB partition. The table below displays what the Extended Drive Scan will report, showing actions to be taken:

Table 2-1 Extended Disk Scan

Suggested Partition Size

Action

3 GB

Accept it [Y]

2 GB

Skip this partition in order to scan the space underneath

4 GB

Accept this partition. The size shows that it is the partition containing your important data. [Y]

The table below displays the differences between Extended Disk Scan and the DOS command-mode parameter -ignoreMBR:

Table 2-2 Extended Disk Scan vs. -ignoreMBR

Extended Disk Scan

-ignoreMBR

Runs in DOS interface mode

Runs in DOS command mode

All detected partitions are added as primary partitions (logical drive structure ignored).

Detected partitions are added, maintaining logical drive structure. Disk is restored exactly to the same state it was before data removed.
