TwinDB data recovery toolkit
TwinDB Data Recovery Toolkit is a set of tools that operate with MySQL files at low level and allow to recover InnoDB databases after different failure scenarios.
The toolkit is also known as UnDrop for InnoDB, which is more accurate name because the toolkit works with InnoDB tables.

- A table or database was dropped.
- InnoDB table space corruption.
- Hard disk failure.
- File system corruption.
- Records were deleted from a table.
- A table was truncated.
- InnoDB files were accidentally deleted.
- A table was dropped and created empty one.
