After a severe data loss or an involuntary deletion of sensitive files, counting with a free tool such as Wise Data Recovery does make a difference. This utility offers quick and deep scan processes to recover recently erased files and others that may have already been rewritten, respectively. It can recover all types of files from all kinds of drives and devices, including SD cards and mobile phones.

The recovery process is extremely simple – just pick one of the two scan processes provided and let the program do the hard job for you. I advise you to use the Deep Scan process only when the Quick Scan has failed, as a deep scan of a big hard drive may take quite a long time. Besides, recovery of hard-to-find files may require you to upgrade to the tool’s Professional version, which not only brings back to life long-deleted files and archives but also includes automatic updates and premium technical support. One way to narrow the search and save time is to make use of the program’s file extension filter – select the extensions or possible extensions of the files in question and the program will check and retrieve only those that match your query.

Once the scan process has finished, you’ll be presented with a list of all the recoverable files found. They will be nicely organized in folders and subfolders, just as they were saved in the scanned drive. Simply check the box of all the files you wish to recover and let Wise Data Recovery do its magic.

Wise Data Recovery is also available in a portable version that not only will allow carrying this powerful tool with you at all times but will also guarantee that running the program won’t interfere with the scan and recovery processes. I can only recommend you to download and try this free tool with all kinds of files, both recently and long deleted, and check its capabilities for yourself.
