Is there a file recovery software which preserves file names and directory structure?

  1. I'm trying to recover an entire terabyte, and I don't want a recovery software which will scrap filenames and file structures, leaving an unintelligible mess to wade through. Is there a software which will preserve file names and structures, and possibly allow me to restore only particular directories?

    Hmm; Normally any backup software would do this for you.

    If you had a secondary copy (say other media to which you did a copy), then this would be a snap.

    It sounds as if you only have the original media and you need to recover "whatever is possible".
