Are you looking for any reliable data recovery utility that works best on Windows and can recover all your desired lost or deleted files? Disk Drill for Windows might suites perfect to address almost any type of data loss situations from accidental formatting to permanent file deletion.
This tool offers easy and flawless recovery of over 200 files types with all the popular storage devices supported.
Device type support
Disk Drill for Windows supports range of storage devices including hard disk drive, flash drive, USB, solid state device, memory cards or SDHC cards etc. This tool will certainly detect all the externally or internally attached storage devices with ‘Recover’ button in front of it.
You can also choose to perform other operations like protection or creating backup image using ‘Extra’ button (click on drop down icon).
Steps to recover deleted files
You wouldn’t have found data recovery that much easier before trying Disk Drill for Windows. With huge list of drive and file type support, you don’t need to look anywhere else. Download tiny setup file from official website and install it on your PC.
It is recommended to avoid installing this application on PCs facing data loss situations. Instead, try removing it from the system and connect it externally using connector source. This will avoid any chances of deleted data from being overwritten or too damaged to be recovered using recovery programs.
You’ll find the list of connected drives on the home screen of the software and begin scanning the drive right away. You can alternatively choose to perform quick or deep scan based on your requirements. Deep scan is useful when other options doesn’t find file you are looking for.
Considerably, it’ll take more time than expected but you’d be able to recover files deleted even a year ago. Disk drill employs extensive scanning mechanism that will look for deleted record on all the possible locations of storage drive and would recover it immediately.
This data recovery software will list and categorize all the records in a folder with their unique file types i.e. Pictures, Video, Documents, Audio, and Archives. You can choose to categorize deleted files based on its size, date modified or possible locations.
There are specifically four types of details will be provided for any recoverable items – Item type, Modified date/time, Size and Folder type which will helps you further to locate missing files easily.
To recover your desired files, simply press a single click on it and choose to recover from the bottom right corner of the software interface. You can save the deleted information on local drive, FTP location, or burn it onto CD or DVD.
Ability to cancel/stop or save scan information
Don’t get puzzled if the scanning takes lot of time. It just normal with bigger capacity drives. This free data recovery app lets you cancel or pause the scan operation anytime at mid of scanning so you can continue scanning the drive later. Additionally, you’d also be able to save the currently scanned record and perform recovery at any convenient date or time using the ‘Save Session’ option.
What we like
Powerful scanning and speedy recovery makes this recovery tool stand ahead from the rest of the competitive products.
What we don’t
Disk Drill for Windows is new in the market and might takes time to employ all the latest capabilities supported in any other data recovery programs. However, I’m with the current version of this tool and would strongly recommend it to use it at home or office locations.
