File recovery solutions are everywhere you look these days, but DiskDigger promises to offer you exactly the things you need when trying to get back accidentally-removed data.
In plain English, it claims it comprises not only a very effective file recovery engine, but also an easy to use interface and plenty of settings to play with.
And as far as we’re concerned, the amount of information provided to the user at any given moment indeed makes the app easy to use, but a dedicated help section with a comprehensive manual would help a lot.
Still, the whole recovery process has been designed as a wizard, which means users need to follow a few steps and configure the task as they advance towards the end of the process.
DiskDigger works with FAT, NTFS and exFAT partitions and comes with support for a wide array of file formats, such as photos and images, documents, audios and videos, archives, virtual CD images, DLLs and executable files.
There are two recovery modes at your disposal, so you can “Dig Deep” and scan file system for deleted files or “Dig Deeper” and scan the disk surface for traces of files. It’s obvious that the second is the one more advanced, also asking you to choose the file formats you wish to look for.
Once the recovery process begins, files are organized by type in tabs, thus letting you browse them easily, with a preview window making sure that you’re trying to restore the right file.
The overall time needed to complete the process depends on your settings, so it could take anywhere from 1 minute to a few hours. The good news is that DiskDigger doesn’t affect system performance, requiring just a moderate amount of resources to complete the task.
All things considered, DiskDigger is a handy piece of software that can help you a lot in the task of recovering files. It has the things users need the most, including a well-organized interface and an effective recovery engine.
