I have been using Wondershare Data Recovery since last 2 year and I can say this data recovery software is one of top, best and effective data recovery programs available on the market. Whenever someone asks me to suggest a good yet easy to use software to recover lost data. Wondershare Data Recovery swiftly comes to my mind.
Downloading and installing Wondershare Data Recovery is a very easy to do job and it does not require any additional software to be installed such as Microsoft .Net framework. Wondershare.com offers a free trial which lets you recover a small amount of data. Using Wondershare Data Recovery free trial, You can recover 100 MB of lost data for free.
Wondershare Data Recovery is safe to download, install and use, I found no virus, malware, adware, spyware, toolbar and any other annoying thing.
You can download Wondershare Data Recovery free trial (offline installer) from here
Although This 100 MB limit in Wondershare Data Recovery is not enough, But this facility is very beneficial for those whom requirements are not exceptional. You can retrieve an important MS office file, family picture, video etc for free.
Afterwards After having ran out of allowed data limit by Wondershare.com, You’ll have to buy full version of Wondershare Data Recovery which normally available priced at 40$ for 1 PC per year. You also can opt in a lifetime subscription by spending 50$ for a single PC.
As far as interface is concerned, after launching it, You are greeted by an elegant and truly easy to use user interface. The user interface of Wondershare Data Recovery is divided into two modes to make it easier to operate and time saver.
Quick mode comes to help you quickly try to recover a particular file extension or folder such as you can scan by image, video, audio, text, office document and other file extension to recover your preferred files. It will mere search for the file extensions you have specified for
Standard mode is provided to dig deep into a hard drive, SD memory card, USB flash, external hard drive and other storage devices.
As you can see Wondershare Data Recovery includes virtually every feature that could be expected from a data recovery tool. You have 3 scanning options to make it recover any lost data. If one scanning option fails to retrieve lost then second and third one comes to help you out to recover data.
Here you find Lost File Recovery, Partition Recovery and Raw File Recovery scanning options.
Lost File Recovery is a straightforward scanning option. Simply pick a folder or local hard drive partition, SD memory card, USB flash, external hard drive and any other storage device to be scanned through this option. I always prefer to use this option. Because it’s easier and faster. Usually Lost File Recovery in Wondershare Data Recovery does not disappoint and brings lost data back.–
If It does not manage to recover your desired lost data, You may use deep scan features, It should do the trick. But It takes a while depending on the size of the storage device, partition or folder etc.–
It’s very easy to access what you want to recover in both recovery options. You can filter results by file extension and path When Lost file recovery and Partition recovery options return results.
You might know how it feels. When an entire USB or memory card or a 50 GB of hard drive partition filled with very important data gets formatted, corrupted or becomes inaccessible. Partition Recovery scanning option is what that comes to rescue you from being hopeless.
Wondershare data recovery users love Partition Recovery scanning option in it. If your storage device is not physically damaged. Through this option you can recover lost data from a formatted partition, memory card, USB pen drive etc.
Please bear in mind before going for this recovery option, I found while testing it, it takes a significant amount of time.
The Raw File Recovery option is used as a final tool When previous recovery options do not manage to recover lost data. Although this recovery option works great, but it takes too long to be completed to return the results and after having scanning completed, reaching your required file is the equivalent to looking for a needle in a haystack.
As you can see There is no clue about file name and file path and as well as no hint of file health. Here you are on your own no feature to help you out at your disposal. You’ll have to recover and check one by one. But keep in mind The Raw File Recovery option can recover what Lost File Recovery and Partition Recovery fail to recover.
The resume recovery feature is at your disposal in all of three recovery options. Through this beneficial feature, You can continue from where you left off, In other words, You don’t need to scan a device from the beginning. All you need to do is press save button to save scanning results while going back or exiting.
As you know, everything has some shortcomings. I’ve found some shortcomings in Wondershare data recovery. One of the shortcomings is that Though it can recover data from an SD memory card, But If you want to recover lost data from local memory or phone memory of a smart phone then you are out of luck.
As most of its rivals come packed with a feature dedicated to recover lost images, contacts, SMS and other precious data from local or phone memory of smart phones. but There is no such dedicated option in Wondershare data recovery.
I found Wondershare Data recovery a very lightweight piece of software while using and it did not crash. Wondershare Data recovery is available for two most used and famous operating system Microsoft Windows and Mac users.
