File Panel

File panel displays virtual directory structure and allows browsing through directories and selecting items to recover or to open them in the Disk Editor. You should open a volume to access the file panel.

Open virtual directory [All Found + Reconstruction] to virtually reconstruct file system and display all found and removed files and directories. The results of Full Scan are used for reconstruction.

To recover files marked as "found" or "deleted" (see icon description below) the corresponding options must be selected in the data recovery dialog box.

Directory structure is virtual and may differ from the one that can be found directly on the disk or in the standard browser. Virtual names are enclosed in square brackets or begin with the sign $ and are usually placed in the topmost level of the directory structure. Virtual directory $Root generally corresponds to a root directory of a volume in the standard browser.

Press [Enter] key or double click to open the directory, or open the file in the Disk Editor.
Press [Ctrl+Enter] to open the item in the Disk Editor.
Press [Insert] key or [Space Bar] or click the checkbox to toggle marking the item for recovery.
Press [Shift+F9]/[Shift+F10] or right click the item for a context menu.
