Key Features

Deleted files, formatted drive, RAW drive or lost partition? M3 Data Recovery is a powerful file recovery tool specializing in Data Recovery, RAW Drive Recovery and BitLocker Recovery in Windows.

Data Recovery Module

As a free file recovery software, M3 Data Recovery can recover deleted files, even recover lost data from formatted drive, lost partition, etc.

Deleted file recovery: Recover accidentally deleted files even emptied from Recycle Bin. However, the deleted file recovery results depend on whether the deleted files are overwritten or not.

Formatted drive file recovery: Recover lost data from mistakenly formatted drive, external hard drive, USB drive, flash drive, SD card, etc.

RAW drive file recovery: Recover lost data from RAW partition or inaccessible drive, drive showing 0 bytes or asking for formatting, and so on.

Lost partition file recovery: Recover lost data from deleted or lost partition after repartitioning hard drive, resizing the partition, MBR corrupt, etc.

Hard drive file recovery: Recover lost data from internal hard drive and external hard drive.

External drive file recovery: Recover lost data from external hard drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card, etc.

Crashed computer data recovery: M3 Data Recovery WinPE bootable media can rescue your data when your computer is not turning on.

Deep scan file recovery: Deep scan can scan every sectors on the specific drive to find more files.

RAW Drive Recovery Module

RAW drive repair: M3 Data Recovery is also a partition recovery software. It can repair corrupted file system to fix RAW drive to NTFS or FAT32 without data loss. This method can save you data recovery time, but RAW drive repair is just possible, not 100%. - RAW drive repair feature is available in paid version.

RAW drive data recovery: Sometimes, the file system is severely damaged. In this situation, RAW drive cannot be fixed, so data recovery is the only way.

Physical damage: Sometimes, RAW storage device has been physically damaged (For example, bad sectors, I/O device error, data error (CRC)). In this situation, send the RAW storage device to a local data recovery professional for help. -Hardware issue is beyond any data recovery tool.

Don't care data loss from RAW drive: M3 Data Recovery is a file recovery program, instead of a format tool. In this situation, please directly format RAW drive to NTFS/FAT32 with Windows inbuilt format tool.

BitLocker Recovery Module

M3 Data Recovery is also a BitLocker Data Recovery software. It can recover lost data from corrupted, failed, formatted, inaccessible, deleted/lost BitLocker partition. BitLocker data recovery requires the password or 48-digit recovery key. This feature is available in Professional edition and Technician edition.

Unlike common data recovery, BitLocker data recovery requires intact BitLocker metadata and password or 48-digit recovery key to decrypt data.

Data drive: The password and recovery key are required to decrypt data from BitLocker encrypted data drive.

OS drive: Recovery key is the only way to decrypt data from BitLocker encrypted OS drive due to TPM chip.

Physical damage: If BitLocker encrypted drive is physically damaged, send it to a local data recovery profesional for help.

BitLocker metadata corrupt: BitLocker metadata was used to store the password and recovery key when encrypting the drive with BitLocker. Sometimes, BitLocker metadata has been completely erased (For example: Format BitLocker encrypted drive with built-in format tool in Windows 10/8/7). In this situation, the lost data cannot be decrypted even if the users have the correct password and recovery key.

No password or recovery key: M3 Data Recovery cannot break into your BitLocker drive without password and recovery key. In this situation, maybe the 3rd-party BitLocker password brute-force cracking tool can help you by running a attack.

Data recovery varies and is a complicated case, so we highly recommend every customer to try M3 Data Recovery before purchasing. Because M3 Data Recovery free trial version provides a file preview function to check if your lost files are recoverable.

Very Very genuine, simple, mind blowing and perfect software for lost data. I tried many software's. Most of then only showed the picture, audio, video files but m3 data recovery did the splendid job by showing the lost recovery partition as well as the as it is deleted folders. Hats off to m3 data recovery team for making such wonderful software.

I am pleased to advise that recovery of the "permanently deleted" files has been completely successful. I am grateful for your perseverance and patience in guiding me through the process, and your understanding that I am not a technician, and needed step by step help at times. It must have been irritating for you. I am perhaps most of all pleased that I allowed myself to be persuaded that it was possible that the M3 Data Recovery software could indeed recover files which I had (accidentally of course) permanently deleted. This is a most remarkable facility, which deserves prominent emphasis in the Progam's promotional material.

I had a 4TB drive that was unreadable, tried disk doctor etc no good. I downloaded M3 it found the drive and scanned it which took 6 days but it's a big drive so just left it to do it's thing. Got up this morning and program had closed but I could now see drive and copied everything to new HDD. I'm so pleased as there's family stuff that's irreplaceable which I thought I'd lost.
