This step involves the complete diagnosis and search operation. Novell Data Recovery Software searches for the file system information from the beginning of the disk and reverse calculates the disks file structure. The various file system information comprises of Volume definition Table. Novell Data Recovery Software also finds previously existed partitions. The analysis is to be followed in three modes. First the Quick Mode has to be run. This mode quickly analyses the disk and displays the files. Most of the cases are resolved in this mode itself.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does Novell Data Recovery Software work?
Novell Data Recovery Software is data recovery software. It bypasses the operating system, calculates the system parameters internally, and searches for data heuristically. After a brief analysis Novell Data Recovery Software reports the percentage of recovery and files that can be recovered.
If my computer is not booting, then how can Novell Data Recovery Software access it?
Novell Data Recovery Software is to be run after booting the computer using a bootable floppy. Then Novell Data Recovery Software bypasses the system area of the disk and
physically searches for data
Why cannot Novell Data Recovery Software recover 100% data from large deleted files?
When files are deleted, they are not removed from their physical location but their links get zeroed up. So if large files are fragmented, then their chain cannot be reconstructed. Smaller files are mostly stored contiguously and are not fragmented, so they can be recovered.
Why cannot Novell Data Recovery Software recover 100% data from formatted disks?
The reason is the same as above. After formatting, the links get fully zeroed. Moreover if files and folders have been copied after formatting, then nothing can be retrieved.
Why cannot we recover the files on the same partition?
This is because, the lost files when recovered on the damaged partition may overwrite the lost files, and hence the recovery may not be authentic or 100%.
