Storage Spaces Recovery project

Nowadays we are busy developing the tool that will be able to recover data from a deleted Storage Spaces pool. The recovery should be based on only the data stored in the pool, not on a Storage Spaces data base.

We have understood already that the tool will demand quite stern system requirements and will be slow since two passes over disks will be needed. Additionally it is required that all the data is read for each pass. The chance to get an absolutely correct recovery solution is not very good, at least on this stage of design and testing. It is not ruled out that about ten percent of data will be lost irreversibly.

We plan to produce the first preview version of the tool in the end of this  year (2012).  The web site for the project is here.
