What can be recovered?

Because data loss comes any many shapes and sizes, the data recovery software you use can’t be limited to one option. For example, there are many data recovery software programs that are limited to recovering deleted files. But what if your hard drive is damaged or formatted, those utilities just will not do. Fortunately, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard has many recovery options to choose from. Below is the full list of recovery options:

  • Deleted files Recovery – Recover files that may be deleted, lost or accidentally changed.
  • Formatted Recovery – Recover files from formatted drives. Including memory cards, USB drives, external drives, or SD cards.
  • Recycle Bin Emptied Data Recovery – Selectively recover deleted files after emptying the Recycle Bin. We’ve all been there.
  • Lost Partition Recovery – Recover files from lost partitions. Additionally both local hard drives and removable devices are supported.
  • Hard Disk Damage – Hard drives can fail due to bad power, virus attacks, block (sector) damage, etc. EaseUS can recover files from damaged or crashed drives.
  • OS Crash Recovery – Recover files from a crashed Windows operating system.
  • Virus Attack Recovery – Recover your lost files safely and quickly after annoying virus attacks.

Supported Devices

As mentioned, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard support many devices. Including but not limited to the following; Laptops, SSDs, Camcorders, Video Players, Pen Drives, Hard Drives, USB Drives, Digital Cameras, RAID drives, External drives, Micro Cards, Music Players and CF/SD Cards.

Supported File Systems

Normally, data recovery software only support FAT and NTFS file systems. However, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can recover data from any storage device using any of the following file systems; FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, NTFS5, ext2, ext3, HFS+ and ReFS. Normally data recovery software only supports FAT and NTFS file system. So, the encredible array of supported file systems is this data recovery software’s top selling point.

How much can be recovered?

Even though EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard free edition can only recover up to 2GB, I think that in most cases, it is more than enough. However, you need to click the share button on the software’s title bar to get the full 2GB for free, otherwise you will only be able to recover 500MB.

Alternatively you can purchase the professional version to recover unlimited data. In addition to recovering unlimited data, with the professional version you get a lifetime of free upgrades and a lifetime of free technical support.

How to recover lost files?

Now that you know what EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can do, we will take a look at it in action. Download EaseUS Data Recovery and install it.

Step 1) Select a device or location

Step 2) Scan for recoverable files

The first scan will be quick. You will be presented with a list of files accidentally deleted or emptied from the Recycle Bin.

You will notice a deep scan beginning automatically following the quick scan. It scans the entire storage device instead of just scanning the file directory. As a result, it will find much more lost files compared to the quick scan. However, it will take more time to complete.

Furthermore, you will notice that found files are marked with a special icon and placed in a special folder. For example; the More Lost Files (RAW) folder contains files and folders that no longer have their original names, the Special Lost Files folder contains general recoverable files (PDF documents, office documents, photos, etc.) and deleted files and folders are marked with a d icon.

Step 3) Preview and recover lost files

Now, if you are not sure what files you want to recover, EaseUS data recovery software makes it possible for your to preview recoverable files before selecting them. Additionally, the files can be filtered by type and location. After selecting all the files you want to recover, press the Recover button to start the recovery process.
