EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard is a comprehensive solution to solve all your file-recovery problems. From those files recently deleted or wiped out from your recycle bin, to those lost due to system crashes, formatted drives, virus attacks, or accidentally deleted partitions. It supports any file system, including FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS, as well as EXT2 and EXT3 for Lynux and UNIX. As its name says, its wizard-like interface will gently guide you through the steps needed to recover all your data.

This application tries to cover all those possible situations in which your data may be in danger of being lost forever. From the simple deletion of a file or folder – even after your recycle bin has been emptied -, to more critical situations provoked by system crashes, hardware or software malfunctioning, viruses, disk formatting, etc. When everything seems lost, EASEUS Data Recovery is capable of bringing back to life files and folders with both their original names (regardless of how long they are), and their full paths.

All three functions (simple file recovery, complete recovery, and partition recovery) are performed neatly and seamlessly. After scanning the selected drive(s), the program will show you a list of all the missing files, labeling them according to their current status – deleted, unknown (lost) folder, and lost or RAW file. The program will also show you the file type, and you will have a chance to preview the contents of the file just to make sure you are about to recover the right file. If the deleted file is an image, you will find its thumbnail mode really helpful. Data Recovery lets you search for specific files, and select only those files you really need recovering. Encrypted and compressed files are no different from other data for this efficient tool.

Both the complete recovery and the partition recovery functions offer you the possibility of creating a disk image of the current status of your drives. This image - which will be saved as an EDI file - can be either compressed or sliced without leaving the Disk Image Wizard.

Suitable for all types of users, you do not need to be an expert to recover your valuable information. This Free Edition will allow you to recover as much as 1 GB of deleted information with no further restrictions. For those requiring a fully unrestricted version, you have an option to purchase either the Full or the Professional edition.
