In today's world, there are many misfortunes that can take a toll on the vitality of a file system. A virus might maliciously corrupt files, or a sudden computer shutdown or network crash can leave files broken.

Likewise, zip, RAR, PDF, common image files, common video files, certain music files and other types of data can be restored.
