After months of unremitting efforts, we released Recoverit 8.5 in December 2019! Are you as excited and expected as we are? Just look at what surprises Recoveit 8.5 has now!

Part 1. Two Breakthroughs of Recoverit 8.5

Compared with Recoveit 8.0, Recoverit 8.5 is a quantum leap. In the video era, version 8.5 focuses on video files and increases two functions, called Advanced Video Recovery and Video Repair. Advanced Video Recovery can recover videos by merging video fragments; Video Repair realizes quick repair for common damaged video and advanced repair for seriously damaged video by adding samples. These are two major technological breakthroughs, which can get more important videos back for users. The two new features make 8.5 stands out from the rest of the normal repair/recovery software on the market.

1. Advanced Video Recovery

After the video is deleted or formatted, the user tries to restore by himself but finds that the video cannot be played. Ordinary data recovery cannot solve this problem. As a pioneering technology, Advanced Video Recovery is specially developed to solve the above problem. It mainly has three advantages, smart scan technology, video fragments merging technology, and deep scan technology. It works successfully on all major systems and provides complete recovery of deleted or lost videos, songs, and photos from various data storage devices.

advance video recovery analysis

It adopts the advanced data recovery algorithm. Advanced Video Recovery can increase the quality of file recovery when the file system is not damaged; recover files that are not recognized in file system metadata and not found during a disk scanning procedure; recover files from devices with the unknown file system, such as HD, USB drive, memory sticks, and other removable media.

1Smart Scan Technology

Our smart scan technology is exclusive and unique! It can quickly locate and restore files that other recovery software could never find. It is also an important base to complete those impossible recovery tasks that other software cannot touch, such as trying to merge the video fragments. Smart scan data recovery technology gives you customized control even when recovering from corrupted or reformatted partitions.

2Video Fragments Merging Technology

Merging video fragments can be more difficult than restoring videos that are stored on the disk in a single continuous chunk. The primary goal of the file system is to store information about the order of sectors on the drive containing files. This technology can identify the location of video fragments, retrieve them, and sequence them as much as possible.

3Deep Scan Technology

Deep scan recovery is a recovery module using RAW searching technology. It can extend file search and mask capabilities, get verbose file information. We adopt this technology to scan the file's sector more widely and deeply to make sure that all the possible files can be retrieved. Together with raw recovery, deep scan recovery is also able to recover data with their old names and folder structures.

2. Video Repair

It is specially designed to help users repair video files that are corrupt or inaccessible. It comes embedded with some fantastic features, for example, it repairs multiple formats of videos simultaneously, previews the repaired video files before saving them on the desired location, and supports the main video file format. It mainly includes two repair modes, quick repair and advance repair.

1Quick Repair: Repairing Common Video Errors

It just takes only 3 clicks to get the video file repaired no matter how it got damaged. Quick repair mode can deal with common video errors, such as choppy/blurry/grain/frozen/jerky/videos, flickering issue, video files corrupted after recovery, sluggish or video playing slowly, out-of-sync video or audio lag issue, no sound in the video, videos playing in slow motion, broken MP4 files, stuck and dead pixels on videos.

2Advanced Repair: Using Sample File

This repair mode refers to add some sample videos shot by the same device. If your video file is severely corrupted, Advanced Repair allows you to repair it by adding a sample file to it. A sample file is a valid file of any size created with the same device and the same format as the corrupted video. The software uses the information from the sample file and repairs the corrupted video.

It repairs the videos that got corrupt during the shoot, when performing file transfer, while editing, converting, or processing, for example, video quality loss after export, corruption on the video slider/frame/header.
