When trying to recover any documents, photographs, video and audio files, etc., that you may have deleted by mistake or that were lost due to a disk failure or a virus attack, Wise Data Recovery can help you perform the entire recovery process in a simple and convenient way. Its simple interface, together with its fast scan process will help you bring back to life those files in just a few clicks.

It does not matter where you had your files stored when they were deleted or lost. Wise Data Recovery can search for erased files on internal and external hard drives, USB drives, all types of memory cards, digital cameras, smart phones, MP3 players, you name it. This free tool will scan any of those storage devices thoroughly looking for all recoverable files regardless of their format, and will list them on the program’s main window in no time for you to select the ones you wish to recover. Files will get a color code that will tell you their chances of being successfully recovered, green being for those with the highest marks and red for those that are irremediably lost. “Yellow files” may be partly recovered.

The recovery process itself is also fast, and though the program is capable of recovering all the green and most of the yellow files selected, that doesn’t mean that all of them will be as good as new. Some of them – especially photos, video, and audio files – though apparently recovered, will no longer be playable or viewed in any way other than in hexadecimal format. It's a free tool, however; you have nothing to lose. I recommend you to use this tool for recently-deleted and text-based files mainly, though nothing prevents you from trying this convenient utility with all kinds of data and media files – you may be pleasantly surprised.

beaven martin Does this software recover excel sheets and word document also? I am familiar with the tool Remo Recover that can recover these documents from different storage devices.
