anyfs-tools allows you to recover and convert filesystems while using minimal extra disk space. Unlike other recovery tools, anyfs-tools doesn't copy all the files found on other disks (or partitions), but only saves information about the location of the file blocks to an external inode table. After recovery, a user may mount the damaged filesystem with anyfs and the external inode table and then interact with all recovered files with any program.

Release Notes: Support for converting from ntfs-3g with anyconvertfs was added. anysurrect was optimized to work with large filesystems. Anyfs building with kernel version >=2.6.19 and some other building bugs were fixed. An I/O buffer bug in anysurrect (introduced in 0.84.10) was fixed. The -s option to list sparse files on a filesystem was added to the build_it utility.
Release Notes: Anyfs building with kernel versions 2.6.18 and up was fixed.
Release Notes: Anysurrect not having an efficient I/O buffer was fixed. It is more than twice as fast now. Some building bugs for Gentoo were fixed.
Release Notes: An Anyfuse module was added (now kernel source dependence is optional if you have FUSE). The Debian package was split into multiple packages. A broken build_xfs in the last release was fixed. The progress bar in anysurrect was fixed. build_it now gets blocksize from statfs, not FIGETBSZ (important for vfat).
Release Notes: The package was debianized. Building with xfsprogs version 2.8.11 and later was fixed.
