It is geared toward both new and advanced users. MiniTool Power Data Recovery comes in three different editions, namely, Free, Personal, and Professional.
Installation Process, User Interface
The installation process is simple and the setup takes little time to finish. During installation MiniTool Power Data Recovery setup advises you to install it on a drive which is different from the one from which you want to recover. If you are going to try the free edition, it is worth noting that it has a 1GB data recovery limit and you cannot load previous recovery results.
The user interface is intuitive and attractive with big buttons for important tasks. From the main interface, you can run a quick scan on the entire hard disk, lost or damaged partitions, digital media, CDs or DVDs to find recoverable files. The interface cannot be made simpler than what the tool sports. Even new users will not feel lost navigating through the user interface.
Performance, Features, Recovery of Data
After you do a quick or full scan, the tool displays results from where you can select which data you want to recover. In the results, the original folder structure is preserved. Here, you can filter file types, explore directories, see file names, size, image resolution and thumbnail (for photos), creation date and last modification date. The icons on the right of each file indicates the condition of files. Whether they are deleted, lost or raw, or if they are in NTFS compressed or encrypted form.
If you are looking for a particular file which you may have deleted accidentally, you can use a search function. You can search for specific files by using case or word matching, or by applying advanced filters like file extension, date and file size. You can export the scan results to file for closer examination.
Before running full scans on partitions, media devices or CDs/DVDs, you can define the file types you are looking for recovery. This way you can narrow down your search, reduce scan time. You have the option to include or exclude documents, archives, graphics and pictures, audio and video, emails, databases, and other files types.
Once you have selected the files you wish to recover you will be asked to specify an output directory. After that, MiniTool Power Data Recovery will do the recovery. For proper recovery, you should keep in mind to select the drive which is different from the source.
