Oh, the ultimate joy of realizing that we have lost and / or deleted files that were particularly important or important for our future in this cruel world! You feel this fear and… You want to do something! I reassure you right away, there is still a chance to save the files or photos that you accidentally erased.
How? I beg you, tell me everything!
Through the use of data recovery software! There are many on the market and there are rarely any free, all this little world knowing very well how much you care about these lost files and you would not hesitate to put your hand in the pocket to recover. Am I wrong? In this post I will describe the results of my review on EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Pro.
Back on topic. If you have landed
here, it is likely that you want:
Recover files after resetting Windows
Recover deleted files permanently on Windows
Recover data after a Windows crash
Recover deleted photos
Recover deleted items from Microsoft Outlook
And many more…
The installation is not a problem but be careful not to install the software on the same storage device as the one on which you lost your data! For example, if you want to restore lost data to your system disk (the disk on which Windows is installed); do not install EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional on the C: partition; install it on another partition or on an external device (USB key / external hard disk). Because if you install the software on the drive where you want to recover your data, there is a risk of data loss. The EaseUS installation files might overwrite and take the place of your old data. I’m going to explain the way:
The recovery of data permanently deleted from the recycle bin.
After having permanently deleted some files from the recycle bin, I launched EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional to recover deleted files. On the first screen, I selected the type of file that the software will search. As I had a bit of everything, I left all the boxes checked then click on Next.
On the second
screen, I selected the drive or partition on which the data was lost. I
selected the only system partition and then I clicked on the Analysis button to
start the search for all the lost files. The quick scan takes more or less time
depending on the performance of the drive on which the scan is started. On an
SSD or a USB key for example, the analysis is fast enough; on a hard drive, the
analysis is much longer.
Once the quick scan was complete, a pop-up appeared and told me that if the files I am looking for have not been found by the software, I have to run the deep scan.
The screen for selecting and restoring lost files was easy to use. I could filter the contents of all folders by file type (photo, audio, document, video, email and other) and even by keywords (via the search field).
I started by filtering the files
found by the software with the keyword “crab” (as all deleted files
had this word). Verdict: only 2 of my files had been found. I therefore
launched an in-depth analysis by clicking on the Advanced Analysis button at
the bottom of the screen to try to find the others.
Once the thorough analysis was complete, I noticed that the found files were classified as follows: existing partition, lost partitions, special lost files and more lost files. I filtered the new files found with the keyword “crab” and … fortunately; all the files (that were deleted) were found!
My conclusion is that this software is very effective, able to recover my data that has been deleted a long time ago.
