ReviveIT (Revit) - smart data recovery tool (file carving).

Performing digital forensics or data recovery can sometimes be problematic, and you will eventually need to resort to file carvers.

Revit (Revive IT) is an advanced file carver thta uses file structure based carving, originally developed for DFRWS 2006. This means you can carve files right out of raw disk data, even in the lack of a filesystem or partition table.

It is a noteworthy tool alongside Foremost and Scalpel.
