File systems and the best recovery suite for them

admin 05 Jul , 2021 0 Comments data recovery

When it comes to data recovery, of course there's no "one size fits all" software. So, based on people's experience with different softwares, I am looking for feedback about which software to choose based on the file system.

I would request the experts here to kindly fill up the table. Usually there are two scenarios where you can lose data. Accidental format, or partial zero-fill/overwrite. If there is any software that's better at one scenario than the other, then kindly put that down too.

File system format Formatted DD-ed (RAW)
EXT4
BtrFS
ZFS
exFAT
NTFS
FAT
APFS
HFS+

I think it will help the community to have a reference like this.
