There are many reasons caused RAW drive, such as corrupt file system, virus attack, unsafely unplugging external drive, hardware issue. If RAW drive is only caused by corrupt file system, M3 RAW Drive Recovery uses "Rebuild/Repair file system" method to fix RAW drive (change/convert RAW to NTFS/FAT32) and recover data from RAW drive as below:

Recover FAT32 boot sector

Repair FAT tables

To repair FAT, M3 RAW Drive Recovery compares the two FAT copies. If the FATs mismatch (sector by sector check) or contains errors, M3 RAW Drive Recovery uses the FAT copy with less errors and removes the obvious errors.

Rebuild FAT32 boot sector

If the boot sector is damaged and there is no backup boot sector, M3 RAW Drive Recovery has to rebuild a FAT32 boot sector according to file system information, such as cluster size, partition size, root cluster, reserved sector, FAT length.

Rebuild NTFS boot sector

If both boot sectors are corrupted, M3 RAW Drive Recovery has to rebuild the boot sector according to MFT ($MFT), MFT backup ($MFTMirr), MFT record size, cluster size, the size of the Index Allocation Entry in the root directory index.

Repair NTFS boot sector

M3 RAW Drive Recovery checks the boot sector and the backup boot sector. If the boot sector and the backup boot sector mismatch, M3 RAW Drive Recovery can restore the NTFS boot sector from its backup boot sector or update the backup NTFS boot sector with the current NTFS boot sector.

Repair NTFS MFT

M3 RAW Drive Recovery compares the MFT and MFT mirror. If the MFT is damaged, it tries to repair the MFT using the backup. If the MFT backup is damaged, it will use the main MFT. If both MFT and MFTMirr are damaged and thus cannot be repaired using M3 RAW Drive Recovery, you has to recover data using M3 RAW Drive Recovery.

Customer Testimonials

Well, I've just figured out that I should not assign a drive letter to the 'lost' partition and let the recovery software to find it. I am able to recover all my files now and it only took 5 seconds to display the original file system. I must say it's a great software that is worth the money.---William Ho

Your software can read corrupted unreadable hard disk and recover them 100%. So I love it.---Ziaohua Zhu

Thank you for fixing my drive this morning. Just wanted to say it's appreciated & goodbye!---John Reidford

For some inexplicable reason, my external drive because "Parameter incorrect" and disk management said it was RAW. I had tried for days to use native Windows recovery (chkdsk /f /r/x from CMD and other methods) and every site I visited said data was lost. Western Digital Dianositcs said the drive passed all tests, but the data still inaccessible! Frustration! This morning, I managed to type in just the right search phrase and found your software. I downloaded the trial version, and let it run, and it found all the data in the RAW. So, I took the chance and bought it. All data is accessible with just a point and click. I will be testing the drive just to make sure it isn't failing, but THANK you.---Sandra Chung

I cannot put into words how thankful I am, for having found and used your service. All of my critical business files are backed up to an external drive. However, the drive failed, due to a bad sector, and I could not access any of my documents. I was beside myself; thinking I'd lost all of my hard work. I searched online and found your site. I downloaded your software, followed the instructions you provide, and within less than 15 minutes, all of my files were recovered – nothing lost! I will highly recommend your software to anyone in the same situation.---Jayson Millson
