When the file system of a hard drive or storage device is corrupted, you can repair it by Windows Scandisk or Chkdsk. But after that you may also lost some important data. How did it happen? Actually Windows Scandisk or Chkdsk may convert your files to a CHK file (Filexxxx.chk) while verifying the corrupted file system. Unfortunately, Windows does not offer a tool for CHK file recovery. But don’t worry! UnCHK can help you open a CHK file and recover lost files in an easy way.
UnCHK is a free tool for CHK file recovery. It can examine the contents of the CHK files and determine if the contents are known file types such as audio files, video, images, archives, executable files and documents. When contents are recognized (for example, as a Word document), the CHK files are copied to a new file with the correct file extension (Filexxxx.CHK -> Filexxxx.DOC). The new file extension allows you to easily open the file using the associated program. That how UnCHK works to manage CHK file recovery.
1. Run UnCHK and choose the directory where the CHK files are and a destination directory.
2. Choose your scan option.
Whole Files will look at each file and check for a recognized signature, Embedded Files can pull objects like images from inside the CHK files and Floppy/Hard drive can check for cross linking in the files. You can choose the one work best for you. Finish the two CHK file recovery steps, you can successfully restore your data.
While CHK files may contain garbage, before deleting them you should examine the contents of these files. This is especially true if you lost files after a system or application crash: the CHK files may contain the contents of the lost files. Have you ever mistakenly deleted a CHK file while ignoring this fact? It doesn’t matter. EaseUS data recovery software can help you recover deleted CHK files with simple clicks.
