Scan Information file contains information of a scan and is saved as a DAT file. You can save scan information file during any complete or incomplete recovery process. DAT file can be used to restart recovery later. For example, you saved DAT file of a scanning process and recovered only some files from that scan result. Later, you want to recover some more files from the same drive. You can use the saved DAT file to restart recovery.
Using a scan information file saves time, since scanning of each file does not take place. All files and folders shown after scan process will be shown on loading the DAT file created for that scan. In addition, if you have performed scanning process but not saved any files then you can use the DAT file to restart recovery at some other time.
