It can also be used to access unassembled, raw, or corrupted partitions. Power users will also appreciate their ability to recover server data and RAID storage. We will examine the strong set of features, interface, and performance of EaseUS software.

We have reviewed the general recovery process using Data Recovery Wizard Pro for Windows. When the application opens, step 1 will require you to choose a scan location. If you are dealing with a partition that is not mounted or deleted, the Data Recovery Wizard will also display this information by pulling information from the partition table. Unlike most data recovery tools, you do not need to perform a full hard disk scan first.
There is no option with EaseUS to scan the entire hard drive. Choose the partition you want to work with and click “scan”. The Data Recovery Wizard will automatically perform a quick scan and then start a deep scan. During scanning, the program displays a progress bar at the top of the application, along with a countdown of how much time remains before completion. You can search for and preview files before the scan completes as they are retrieved or wait until it is finished. The preview feature helps because recovered files are given generic names, like most Windows data recovery tools. After the scan is complete, you can browse content through the file tree, file category (graphics, audio, document, video, email, other) and search for files. Searching is useful because you can search for a specific file type by looking for an extension (.txt, .jpg).
Regarding the supported file types, EaseUS covers all the basics:
– Documents: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF
– Images: JPEG, PNG, RAW, Photoshop, Illustrator
– Audio: MP3, WAV, AIFF, AAC, Ogg
– Videos: MPEG-4, QuickTime, AVI, WMV
– Files: Zip, Gzip, RAR, Stuffit
Supported file systems include:
– Windows: FAT, NTFS
– Mac: HFS, HFS +
– Removable Storage: ExFat
The content you’ve personally deleted will be in the “trash” folder. Content deleted by other means, such as a program, can be found in a special folder marked as “More Lost Files (RAW)”.
Retrieving content is simple. Just click the checkbox next to the file name, click the “recover” button and select a recovery location. This location must be a separate partition or drive and you can choose an external drive.
Although the experience is not perfect, we were impressed after spending a little time to recover deleted files with the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard. The detailed analysis performed was not as complete as some services considering the total files found, but returned all the files we were looking for.
The ability to recover data from HDDs, SSDs, RAID storage, servers and even optical drives makes it a flexible tool. In fact, the solution is so comprehensive that if you are an IT professional there is no doubt that the EaseUS data recovery line will make it an invaluable addition to your toolkit.
