Eassos Photo Recovery Help - Recover Lost Photos and Pictures by File Type

Eassos Photo Recovery is able to restore file by analyzing the way it stores data after scanning continuous area of hard drive or partition. This recovery solution is usually used when file system is damaged so severe that photo recovery software fails to reorganize file directory structure and rescue data.

For instance, JPG file format always stores data starting with hex data "FFD8FFE0", which is usually followed by information like image width and height. Therefore, when Eassos Photo Recovery finds "FFD8FFE0", it'll recognize it together with followed information as a JPG file.

Once the starting info of a file is identified, the photo recovery software keeps analyzing file structure and make out file size by way of special algorithm until the entire file is recovered.
