Free Data Recovery Software
Free Data Recovery Software is a program with a pretty self-explanatory name - it allows you to retrieve lost or deleted files from your computer.
The tool is wrapped in a user-friendly interface; thanks to the intuitive, Explorer-based layout, you can easily locate and select found items after scanning the hard drive.
So, you can check out the name, type, size and condition, along with the date of creation and modification for each file. Simply select which items you want to recover and let Free Data Recovery Software take care of the rest after establishing a target directory.
Moreover, you can use a filter for resulted items which can be a particular name or extension. Other settings can be configured as well when it comes to the date of creation and modification, size and attributes (e.g. archive, system, read-only).
Free Data Recovery Software also allows you to preview items, automatically create folders on recovery, exit the skinned mode, as well as disable the toolbar and status bar.
The file recovery tool needs a moderate amount of system resources in order to finish a scan job in reasonable time (depending on the size of your hard drive). It has a good response time and contains user's guide. We have not encountered any errors during our tests; Free Data Recovery Software did not freeze or crash.
On the downside, you cannot set the tool to look only in a particular area of the hard drive or configure filters before initializing the scanning procedure. Free Data Recovery Software has not received updates recently.
