Berlin-based developer O&O Software GmbH has announced the release of O&O MediaRecovery 10, its media file recovery package for Windows Vista and later.
The most interesting addition appears to be the ability “to repair corrupt data prior to recovery”. We’ve yet to test that – and it’s going to be hard to benchmark anyway – but If you’ve lost files due to hard drive corruption then it may significantly increase your chance of recovering something usable.
The latest release now offers support for Windows 10 Technical Preview.
The program is reportedly better at recovering metadata, although we’re not sure how that’s going to work: if you can recover the original file, presumably you get the metadata as well.
Elsewhere, a redesigned interface keeps everything very straightforward, with a single wizard walking you through the entire recovery process.
As before, the highlight of the program remains its support for 80+ media file types, particularly useful when deep scanning corrupted volumes for lost data.
A trial build of O&O MediaRecovery 10 is available now. Beware, though: as with many other recovery tools, the trial version displays whatever lost files it finds, but won’t recover them.
