How to Use
Download EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard from their official website and install it to your PC/MAC machine. Launch the app after installation and continue with the scree options for the next step.
When the software is successfully launched, USB disks, drive partitions and hard disk drives available on the PC will be shown.
If a partition was previously deleted, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard will detect and display it as a “Lost Partition”. A scan button is located at the middle-bottom section of the active screen. It is used to trigger the scanning for deleted files, before clicking on the option to recover them.
Select the partition (hard disk drive or external storage device) with the lost files, then hit the “Scan” button to start the process.
Click on recover button and select where to save the recovered data to complete the file rescue operation.
This software does not have an option to choose the type of scan you want to be carried out, neither does it allow one to select the exact file type(s) to recover. You just hit the scan button and off it goes.
It has two scanning processes- Quick Scan and Deep Scan; first, it starts with the quick scan and then automatically launches the deep scan. The “Deep Scan” looks into every nook and cranny of your PC and gets your lost data back, it takes longer time to complete a deep scan than it would take for a quick one.
During our test, the quick scan ran for few seconds while the deep scan completed in 1 hour, 24 minutes. EaseUS was able to recover lost data of about 417.47MB (Quick Scan) and 8.3GB (Deep Scan).
While the scanning is still in progress, you can view the already scanned files by toggling through the file tree, click on any document and the preview will appear on the right side bar.
Files or documents you deleted personally will appear in the “Recycle bin” directory while the ones lost by other means would appear on the “Other Lost Files” folder.
You can easily find a file by using the search toolbar at the top right corner of the preview pane. You can also attempt recovery on selected scanned files.
