As a computer user you always face situations when you risk losing important data to unpredictable causes.
O&O DiskRecovery is an utility that allows you to thoroughly scan your drives and recover damaged or deleted files. The application provides you with not one but three scanning methods that make sure nothing of importance is omitted and you get the best chances of restoring your files. They can be run separately, one at a time or combined for improved efficiency.
Using this tool is easy as it displays a wizard-like interface which guides you step by step through all the phases of the recovery process. It automatically recognizes not only your hard drive partitioning but also displays the external storage devices connected to your computer.
Depending on the file type you are missing and the cause that led to its disappearance, you can scan for deleted files and folders (O&O UnErase), search for partitions that are formatted or have a compromised structure (O&O Format Recovery) and search for files on destroyed partitions and disks (O&O DiskRecovery). Using the three mentioned processes you are able to reconstruct files and folders and restore them.
The application is also fitted with a clever feature that tells it to ignore existing files, this way reducing time spent on the actual scan. You can activate this feature and the time you save avoiding those files, you can invest in a O&O DeepScan that has more chances of finding small files.
O&O DiskRecovery supports a massive number of file formats and enables you to add your own. This is especially helpful if you are using files that are uncommon. Also, before starting a recovery process you can focus the search on specific files by selecting just them from the large list that is provided.
In closing, O&O DiskRecovery is by all means a powerful data recovery tool that provides you with both surface and deep scan methods.
