Losing your data while formatting drives can be pretty annoying. In that situation, data recovery software products are the ones that come to rescue. EaseUS Free Data Recovery software is one such software that we are going to review today. We will look at its features and performance in recovering your files.
EaseUS Free Data Recovery software can recover deleted files from your hard drive, external USB drives, memory cards and other devices. The free version has a limitation on how much data that you can recover. It is only 500 MB initially, but you can extend this to 2 GB by sharing the software in social networks. Beyond that 2 GB, you need to upgrade to either a Pro ($69.95) or Pro + WinPE edition ($99.90). The wizard supports all file systems such as FAT, NTFS and EXT. It can recover all types of files too: audio, video, photos, emails, compressed archives and documents. With the free version, you can also export or import the scan results to save it in your drive as an .rsf file.
The EaseUS Free Data Recovery hard recovery software launches a wizard when it is started. It will ask for a location to start finding lost data. The layout is quite modern; it lists all the hard drives and storage units connected to the computer. Once you select a drive (You can select only single drive at a time), you can press the Scan button below to initiate the scan process.
Depending upon the size of the disk you have selected, the process will take some time to complete. There are two scan modes available. The Quick Scan will automatically complete in few moments after the start. The Deep Scan will take a lot more time and you can stop or pause it if you want. In most cases, you will find the required files that you lost. You will find the found files below in a list view. You can see the details of every file and even previews of image files. All file types are put together here and you can filter them by type if you want. From here, you can browse through the folders to find the exact file that you have lost. Once you are done searching, you can select the required files and press the Recover key below to perform the file recovery. This is when the actual recovery process starts.
The wizard will ask you a location to save the recovered files. You have to select a directory that is on a different drive than the drive you are recovering the files from. The recovery process will start and it will show the progress bar below. Additionally, after recovering you can export scan results (Save) to your drive. This lets you recover files from the same results page again without performing the scan again. This is pretty convenient.
The EaseUS Free Data Recovery is hard recovery software that is best suited for users looking for a tool to recover their accidentally deleted files. If you are looking to recover an entire drive or anything like that, you will need a Pro version. We think this is one of the best recovery tools that you can find today.
