One of the rather common problems you are likely to face if you use flash disks in your day to day to transfer files from one device to the other is when the storage disk crashes or becomes unreadable for one reason or the other. Reasons can range from a virus, a redundancy error or maybe just because you ejected it without waiting for the computer its on to unmount it. Whatever the case is, it’s mighty inconvenient at least and sometimes it’s a the difference between meeting a deadline and getting the boot from your job.
In any case, these days, if that were to happen, there are now a couple of data recovery software options to choose from to get your data back, and while they don’t all work like you would expect, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Windows has been useful to me on more than one occasion, where hard drive recovery was necessary.
If you’re ever in a jam, here’s how to use the software to get your data back in 3 easy steps:
Scan Your Computer or Device
The initial scan will be very quick. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard lists all searched files that are simply deleted or cleaned from the Recycle Bin.
After the quick scan, deep scan starts immediately. Deep scan can find much more lost files thoroughly by searching into the file indexes, while it takes a longer time.
- Tips for Marked Files
More Lost Files (RAW): The files found by RAW recovery have no original names/directories. So you need to check these files manually that are specially marked.
Special Lost Files (Label): EaseUS data recovery software extracts useful information from the searched data and sort out under this option. Currently, the photos, videos, pdf files and MS office files are included and more files will be added in the future.
Deleted Folder/Files: The folders/files highlighted with red color ‘d’ mean that these files are deleted or emptied from Recycle Bin.
Preview and Recover Lost Files
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard allows to preview specific recoverable files. After the preview or file filtering, you can target the tracked files and press ‘Recover’ button to get everything you want back now.
(Please Note: DO NOT save the files into the hard drive or device where you lost the data.)
