Using the File Explorer

The following example demonstrates how to use the file explorer included in the Recovery Tool to copy local files to an external storage device.

  1. After the Recovery Tool finishes scanning and attempting to repair the device, click Launch File Explorer on the Advanced Functions screen.

    The file explorer window appears.

  2. Select the files or folders you want to copy.
  3. Right click on the files or folders you want to copy, and select Copy on the context menu.

    Alternatively, press CTRL + C to copy the selected files.

  4. Connect an external storage device to the endpoint.

    The file explorer displays a new sub-tree for the recently attached external storage device.

  5. Navigate to the external storage device, and locate a destination folder.
  6. Right click on an empty area in the destination folder window, and select Paste on the context menu.

    Alternatively, press CTRL + V to paste the selected files.

    The file explorer pastes the files copied earlier in the destination folder.


    The Recovery Tool will decrypt files before adding them to the external device. Decryption using this function may take a long time. If you want to decrypt and copy all files on the drive, another alternative is to decrypt the entire drive using the Recovery Console.
