File Type 2 Data Rescue Saved Scan File
Developer by: ProSoft Engineering Category: Data Files Format: Binary

Scan log file created with Data Rescue, a data recovery utility; saves information about deleted files identified on a scanned volume.

SCD files can be saved after running a Quick Scan or a Thorough Scan. However, they are most useful for saving data after a Thorough Scan is run. By saving an SCD file, you do not need to run a Thorough Scan if you wish to recover files from a volume at a later time. Instead, you can select the "Use Scan File" option and load the SCD file for the appropriate volume.
