Losing important files from your PC is never fun. Fortunately, in most cases, the data is recoverable, so even if you can't see it with the regular Windows File Explorer, there are some special applications that can help you get it back. In case you need one of these tools, Do Your Data Recovery might be the right solution for you.

Do Your Data Recovery is a handy application that can recover those files that you've deleted or lost because of some accident. This tool can get back any kind of files and works on every Windows version, so you don't need to worry about compatibility issues. The free version is capped at 1 GB worth of data, but if you're not trying to retrieve entire movies, this should be enough for your immediate needs.

As far as usability goes, Do Your Data Recovery is quite friendly; its wizard-like interface makes it easy to understand, which means that even if you're not the most tech-savvy person in the world, you can still get it right from the first try. I must admit that the scanning process took a while, but that depends on the size of the folders or partitions that you're searching and on your PC's overall performance. Since my work computer isn't what you would call top-of-the-line, I can't really complain. Another positive aspect is that the application works with all kinds of devices including memory cards, USB sticks, etc., so it can come in handy in many situations.

If you're interested in my opinion, Do Your Data Recovery can be considered a worthy addition to anyone's utilities collection. It's not only that the tool is reliable and easy to use, but the fact that you can recover an entire GB of data while most other similar free applications only tease you by simply displaying the files that they've found, is truly great.
