EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free is a free data recovery software for Windows that allows you to recover up to 2 GB of deleted data. This free data recovery software supports dynamic disk and Linux file system. It allows you to easily recover deleted files. It does not matter if they are deleted images, videos, songs, documents, emails or archive files, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free can recover them. It features filters, offers preview options, offers a deep scan mode for advance recovery of deleted files, allows you to specify file types before restore, saves previous searching results, and more.
The installation process is easy. Couple of clicks and the software is ready. As with any recovery software, you should not install it on the drive which you want to recover files from. This software reminds you about that during the install process which is handy if you accidentally install it on the same drive.
User Interface and Usage
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free offers a wizard-driven user interface that guides you through the process of deleted file recovery. This is a great feature for most users but advanced users may not like this. There is no option to skip the wizard-driven user interface and configure the settings on their own.
Through the user interface, we found that we are allowed to recover only 1 GB of files and we can only unlock another 1 GB if we share about the program though the social buttons present on the program.
First Step To Recover Deleted Files: Filters
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free first step involves selecting the type of file you want to recover. The default selection is all files. If you are, such as, want to only recover deleted photos from SD card, you can select the check box next to Graphics and uncheck all others. Other than Graphics, which recovers common image file formats, you have Audio, Document, Video, Email and Other. The wizard does not allows you to manually specify file types that are included or excluded in the scanning process.
Scan Hard Drive
In the next step, the software first tries to automatically detect all the drives attached to the system. Once completed, you are presented with a list of drives and partitions found and it then lets you choose the one that you want to scan for deleted file recovery. After selecting, simply select Scan and the program will move to the next step.
Once scanning is complete, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free displays a list of files that you can recover. It lets you view details about each file, like file name, date, type and size. Here, you can filter the results by file path, type or date to further sort the list.
You can also preview files in a dedicated panel. To recover the deleted files, you need to select the files from this list and click on Recover.
Deep Scan mode and performance
If you cannot find the deleted files you are looking for in the initial scan, you can use the Deep Scan mode. The Deep Scan mode takes longer to complete and thoroughly scans the drive for recoverable files. After the scan completes you may end up with thousands of files listed for recovery but there is a good chance to recover the file you are looking for.
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free is a user-friendly freeware data recovery software that does its job well. It may not be targeted towards the advanced users but for normal day-to-day recovery job its great. The feature set is just enough to help you easily recover files which you may have deleted accidentally.
