MiniTool Power Data Recovery is a very useful application that can retrieve files which were lost or previously deleted from your computer.
Once you initiate the program with the user-friendly interface, you can select a module to start the recovery process.
So, you can use "Undelete Recovery" to get back accidentally deleted files (or folders) and "Damaged Partition Recovery" to retrieve data from an existing partition of any condition (e.g. damaged, reformatted).
But you can also use "Lost Partition Recovery" to gain back information from lost or deleted partitions, and "Digital Media Recovery" to retrieve, image, audio and video files from a removable device (e.g. memory card, flash drive).
Last but not least, "CD/DVD Recovery" can help you find files on a CD or DVD disc that was formatted or erased.
You can select a local drive or device to start looking for information. Once results are displayed, you can easily browse for files, thanks to the Explorer-based layout.
So, you can select or deselect all files from the current folder, toggle between the list and thumbnail viewing mode. Plus, you can use a search function and configure an advanced filter (by file name/extension, size, date).
Furthermore, you can export the file list to a text document, view an icon and color legend, as well as preview files (text, hex, image).
The program uses a low-to-moderate quantity of system resources, includes an online FAQ page, has an excellent response time, completes a scanning task in a reasonable amount of time and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests.
The only downside to MiniTool Power Data Recovery is that the freeware limits restoration to a size of 1GB. But even that's more than enough to fully experience the program's capabilities. We highly recommend it to all users.
