EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 8.6 Review
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can recover deleted data as well as files from damaged disks, formatted disks, memory cards and storage devices. It can also help you recover RAW data and data from a hard disk crash. The software supports FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS/NTFS5 file systems. What it cannot do though is recover data that has been written over.
Installation and Setup
Installing and setting up the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free edition is pretty straightforward. You download the EXE file in a drive where the data has not been lost and run the wizard. Watch out for any additional add-ons that get automatically installed though.
I make use of a tool called Unchecky which prevents any unwanted tool bars from getting added during installation so it did prevent one item from getting automatically installed. Once the installation is complete, you are taken to the Home page, which displays options that can be scanned – graphics, audio, document, video, email and other files.These options are automatically preselected for you.
How to Recover Deleted Data Using EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free
- Points to note before starting the recovery process
1. Do not install the software on the same drive where you need to recover data from. This will cause deleted data to be overwritten making it impossible for recovery.
2. If you plan to recover contents of a hard drive or partition, make sure you have a storage device with enough space to store the recovered data.
To perform a quick recovery of deleted files here’s what you need to do.
1. Choose the file types on the Home screen. You can deselect options you don't want.
2. Select the drives where you lost the data and click Scan.
3. Preview the results of the scan and select the files that were lost. You can also filter your search by file name, type, and date to find files quickly.
4. Click Recover.
5. Save the files in a fresh new location. Do not save them in the same location from where it was lost.
If you are not able to find the lost files via this Quick Scan process, you can go for a more thorough search with Deep Scan.
