Wondershare Data Recovery is a software tool whose purpose is to aid people in retrieving deleted or lost files from FAT and NTFS drives, be they external or not.
The installation process runs smooth, as it does not bring any kind of unpleasant surprises, and it does not last long. The interface you come to meet is simple and intuitive therefore, it allows all user types to get around it without facing any kind of difficulties.
In fact, the scan is built as a wizard, which will guide you every step of the way, so that you can be sure you will receive the best results. Yet power users should know this can be skipped with just a click of the button.
Whichever you choose, you should know it is possible to select the types of files you want to retrieve, such as photos, audio tracks, videos, common documents (e.g. DOC, PDF, TXT etc.) and e-mails from Outlook, and you are required to pick a location to recover items.
You should know it is possible to enable a deep scan which retrieves formatted files with the complete folder structure, yet you should know it will take longer to complete. The scan can be saved in a RES format, and items can also be recovered to a custom location on the hard drive.
The retrieval process, regardless of its type, is going to hinder the computer’s performance, yet this is to be expected from this type of product.
To conclude, Wondershare Data Recovery is a pretty efficient piece of software, when it comes to recovering deleted or lost items. The response time is good, the interface is intuitive and our tests did not reveal any errors or crashes.
