2.1.4 Regular Expressions Regular expression is a notation for patterns of text, as opposed to exact strings of characters. The notation uses literal characters and metacharacters. Every character which does not have special meaning in the regular-expression syntax is a literal character and matches an occurrence of that character. For example, letters and numbers are literal characters. A metacharacter is a symbol with special meaning (an operator or delimiter) in the regular-expression syntax. . Wildcard: any character * Repeat: zero or more occurrences of previous character or class ^ Line position: beginning of line $ Line position: end of line [class] Character class: any character in the set [^class] Inverse class: any character not in the set [x-y] Range: any characters within the specified range \x Escape: literal use of metacharacter x \<xyz Word position: beginning of the word xyz\> Word position: end of the word For example, the following regular expression .* matches any string of characters, ^a matches any string beginning with character a.

Disk Image

An image is an exact, byte by byte, copy of any object on the Step 1. Select disk panel. When created, images can be processed like their original objects. Images are very useful if there is a risk of total data loss due to hardware malfunction. If bad blocks are constantly appearing on a hard drive, you must immediately create an image of this drive. All data search and recovery can be done from this image.
To create an image,
1 2 Right-click the disk on the Step1. Select disk panel and select Create Image File on the shortcut menu Specify image options, a file name, and destination for the image on the Create Image dialog box

Note: To store an image file, you need a free space equal to at least the object size.

Data Recovery Issues

NEVER TRY TO SAVE RECOVERED FILES/FOLDERS TO THE SAME LOGICAL DISK WHERE THEY RESIDE!!! Or you may obtain unpredictable results and lose all of your data.

Seagate File Recovery for Windows writes directly to a hard drive only when writing recovered data and from its hex editor, if writing is enabled. In all other actions, Seagate File Recovery for Windows only reads data and analyzes them, and never modifies data on the hard drives being analyzed. Most operating systems use lazy-write. So, there is a time lag between file actions and actual changes on data on a hard drive. Seagate File Recovery for Windows analyzes data on hard drives only. That is why it does not always detect recent changes in data structure. Most operating systems constantly write their service information on hard drives. Such writing is especially intensive during start-up and shut-down procedures. When an operating system deletes a file/folder, it treats the space where it has resided as empty and may write something in this place. If this happened, the file/folder and its parameters may be detected correctly, but its data may be lost. Folder names like $$$Folder58448 on NTFS partitions mean that the folder has not been found on the drive but some references to it have been. For example, folders My documents, Work, and Photos have been found and all they have one parent folder, whose description has not actually been found on the disk, so its name is unknown. Therefore it is represented as $$$Folder58448. It may happen that the description of such folders was outside of the search area, so try to enlarge the region or search the entire hard drive. If that does not resolve thie issue, most likely that the description of the folder has been overwritten. Folder names like $ROOT58448 on FAT partitions mean that some folders have been found, but they cannot be included into the folder structure for this FAT partition. Sometimes, such folders may contain other folder structures. If you recover a file, and it appears that the file contains wrong data, try to perform detailed scan for deleted files for the files on the disk
Cross-Linked Folders

Often Seagate File Recovery for Windows finds several FAT folder records that contain the same data. Such folders are called cross-linked. Seagate File Recovery for Windows marks such folders with an arrow mark: Seagate File Recovery for Windows attributes the content of cross-linked folders to one folder called a target folder. When recovering, Seagate File Recovery for Windows places the content to the target folder.
To view the list of cross-linked folders,
* > Right-click a cross-linked folder and select Cross Linked Folders on the shortcut menu A list of cross-linked folders will appear

You may go to any folder in this list by clicking it.


To find a target folder,
*

or Select the cross-linked folder and select Goto Target on the File menu. To reach the File menu, click the Seagate File Recovery for Windows top left corner, and select Advanced on the menu.
Right-click a cross-linked folder and select Go Target on the shortcut menu,

Data Recovery Issues

39

If Go Target is gray, this folder is already the target folder.


To set the target folder manually,
* Right-click a cross-linked folder and select Set As Default Target on the shortcut menu,

or Select the cross-linked folder and select Set As Default Target on the File menu. To reach the File menu, click the Seagate File Recovery for Windows top left corner, and select Advanced on the menu. If Set As Default Target is gray, this folder is already the target folder.

Questionable Folders

Sometimes, Seagate File Recovery for Windows may find FAT records, which look like folders, but their content is invalid. For example, file names have invalid characters, date, time, and size, or other file attributes may look strange. Please note that Seagate File Recovery for Windows correctly recognizes localized names. Seagate File Recovery for Windows treats such records as folders, but does not analyze their content and structure. You can manually search such folders, but results may be unpredictable. Usually, such search reveals garbage. Seagate File Recovery for Windows marks such folders with a question mark.
To re-search an object,
* Right-click a questionable folder on the Seagate select Re-search on the shortcut menu, or

File Recovery for Windows 's Folders panel and

Select the file on the Files panel and select Re-search on the File menu. To reach the File menu, click the Seagate File Recovery for Windows top left corner, and select Advanced on the menu.
