I’m going to let you know right off the bat that this is a biased review as I am a very big fan of EaseUS software; be it data recovery, partition master, backup or any other. This company has very useful, robust, and simple to use applications. In this review, I’ll be sharing the latest EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free, a useful software for recovering data that has been accidentally or intentionally lost through deletion, formatting, or even crashing of storage media. Let’s see what it has to offer and whether it’ll be any good to you.
Features – What’s Your Case?
The EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free was created with one purpose in mind, to recover data that has been lost, regardless of how it was lost. Whether you accidentally deleted your data, formatted your storage media, emptied the recycle bin, lost a partition, damaged your hard drive, a virus attack or your system crashed, the software still enables you to recover the lost data. That’s how powerful and effective it is.
It comes with two modes of recovery, quick scan, and deep scan. The quick scan mode is for quick recovery when you don’t need the software to scan deeply and chances are that you’ll easily recover your lost data. It employs a basic algorithm to provide fast results. The deep scan goes through your storage media sector by sector to provide the best results possible for recovering your data. I’ve used various data recovery software and I won’t give any names, but I must say that none of them compares to the effectiveness of the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free. Other software either will have a complex process of recovering files or simply won’t do any satisfactory recovery even after waiting for a long time for them to recover the lost data. Mind you, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free is faster than other recovery software and produces satisfactory results.
The software can recover a wide range of files, over 1000 file types. We are talking Documents, Graphics, Video, Audio and other files like ISO, RAR, ZIP, HTML, among others. Most of the files you’ll need to get back will fall under these categories, and that means you have a high chance of getting them back. It can recover files from the following storage devices, I’m sure yours is listed:
- Hard Drives (Internal/ External)
- Micro SD Cards
- Digital Camera
- Zip (If you are still using that)
- Pen Drive
- Basically, any storage device that a computer can read
It supports the following file systems:
- FAT (12-32)
Not only is the software fast in recovering files but the part that you play is minimal. I mean, you only take three simple steps and the software will be ready to recover your files.
The User Interface
Two words, Intuitive and User-friendly. The EaseUS free data recovery software is very simple to use. To recover your lost files, the first step you take is launching the software. It will start having detected all the connected storage devices on your computer.
- Select the drive or even folder where you lost your data.
- Click scan and the application will detect all deleted and recoverable items in the selected storage location.
- Select the files and folders (2) you would like to recover and click “Recover” (3).
It’s that simple. The software scans your storage media fast and recovers your data fast.
The version I’m referring to in this review is version 12.0 of the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free. It is available for both Mac and Windows users. I am a Windows user so my review is from that perspective.
The free version of the software will suffice for most lost data troubles. It supports the recovery of up to 2GB of data. However, if you want more features and to recover more data than that, there is a Pro version of the software. It will cost you but I believe it is worth it if you need the features it comes with.
The EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free is, in my experience and perspective, the best data recovery software out there. It is simple to use, very powerful, fast and does what it says it does. If you need a reliable and free data recovery software, look no further.
