Berlin, 30th October, 2014 – O&O Software, the Berlin-based specialist for data security and data recovery, now offers a new version of its successful program for rescuing multimedia files. Deleted photos, videos and music files can be restored directly from digital cameras, memory cards and USB flash drives as long as they are supported as drives under Windows. Operating the program is easy and intuitive thanks to a wizard guiding users step-by-step through the entire recovery process. Even PC users with little or no previous knowledge or experience can easily rescue lost multimedia files.

The current version O&O MediaRecovery 10 offers support for Windows 10 Technical preview (Beta). Recovery of metadata has been significantly improved as has the search processes in order to guarantee the maximum recovery success, even when the file system has been deleted or damaged.

New and improved functions

Various search algorithms: O&O MediaRecovery combines the powerful search processes of the hugely successful data recovery products O&O DiskRecovery and O&O UnErase. These search algorithms apply different technologies to locate data in nearly all scenarios, and can be used together or individually. The algorithm from O&O UnErase is best suited for quick data rescue. The algorithm from O&O DiskRecovery scans every sector of a volume for recognized file signatures and it can reconstruct data from them even when the entire content directory of the volume has been deleted or overwritten.

Integrated Data images: Data images created by O&O DiskImage are also included in the data rescue processes. To prevent a data loss through defective hardware, a forensic image can be created using the separately available O&O DiskImage. This comprehensive image also saves the (assumed) free disk space so that a full data recovery can be carried out later without touching the original hardware.

Filter function: Search results are presented in a clear overview, thanks to filters which sort by size or time (creation/last modified/last accessed). The filters can also blend out empty directories or files for refined search results.
