Smart Search Feature

A sure way to recover lost and deleted documents.

SmartSearch ensures the recovery of over a hundred supported types of documents even on badly damaged, reformatted of repartitioned media. Supporting various types of files such as Office documents, digital pictures, movies and music, SmartSearch does what other recovery products only promise: it uses a slightest chance to locate and recover lost data and deleted files.

The recovery technology works with office documents, databases, email, images, audio and video files, ZIP and RAR archives, and many other types of files, over 250 in total.

Designed to operate on disks with missing or corrupted file systems, SmartSearch supports all types of data recovery from simple file undelete to restoring data from badly damaged disks.

Why SmartSearch?

SmartSearch delivers on a promise of complete recovery by using the slightest chance to get back the lost and deleted files. The technology ensures that every bit of information from the disk is used to facilitate the recovery. This includes the file system or remaining thereof, binary data from the surface of the disk being recovered, and information contained in the structures of the recoverable files such as headers. This powerful recovery feature is available in all products manufactured by Mareew Company, and is enabled in both free and full versions of the products.

SmartSearch removes trial and error from data recovery by featuring all possible methods of data recovery and all combinations of such methods to ensure the best possible outcome.

How Does It Work?

SmartSearch works silently under the hood of all Mareew disk and data recovery products. The technology analyzes the file system if it's available, and then matches information from the file system with actual data it reads from the hard disk. Scanning the disk sector by sector, SmartSearch gathers information about the beginning and end of each recoverable file of a supported type by detecting and analyzing certain structures that are typical for each type of file.

For example: headers of JPEG files contain 'JFIF' signature as well as information regarding the exact length of file and image's pixel dimensions. SmartSearch detects the characteristic signature, analyzes file header in order to determine the exact length of the file, reconstructs the file by reading subsequent sectors from the hard disk, and checks the file for validity, performing a repair operation on corrupted files if necessary.

What Files Are Supported?

SmartSearch is being under constant development. Mareew Company is adding support for more file formats all the time. Today, SmartSearch supports over 250 different types of files.

SmartSearch can locate and recover various Office documents such as Microsoft Office 95-2013, StarOffice and OpenOffice documents, RTF and HTML files, Adobe PageMaker and PDF files. Certain types of damaged documents will be repaired on-the-fly if they are corrupted or partially overwritten. SmartSearch does not require Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, or StarOffice to be installed in order to locate, recover and repair documents.
