      The best one out there. It can edit/restore partitions, list and copy files and folders and it's very fast.

      It's focused in recovering partitions, not files. So it lists partitions with not much info about the files inside.

      It's focused on recovery partition. In the case of you have to recover folders or files, is not really helpfull
