"One-stop free data recovery software."
★ Winner of Best Recovery Tool in 2017.
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free is a version of their recovery software that can recover only up to 2 GB of data. Beyond that and you'll need to purchase the premium version of the software which functions similarly but has no such restriction. Data can be recovered from formatted hard drives, recycled bins recently emptied, dynamic disks, and even removed or deletion partitions. The key here is that the area on the drive where the files were located has not been overwritten already by other files. If they have, not all of the file will be recoverable so recovering earlier rather than later is key here.
The installation of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition is interesting because when coming to choosing the location for the software, there is a bolded warning to not install the package on the same drive as the one that you wish to recover files from. Hopefully you have more than one drive (it says drive, not partition of a drive) to access. Not everyone does. A desktop icon and quick launch icon can be added for you, then the install proceeds. 22.4 MB of disk space is required for the installation. No unwanted software or other extras were included with this free software thankfully.
The interface is uncomplicated. Recovery options can be easily selected and then the software takes its time to see what files it can find. Once the search is over, the files are presented in groups with the ability to tick the checkbox for individual files or for related groups of them which can save time.
