Wise Data Recovery is one of the few completely free data recovery applications that you can find. Most similar data recovery tools on the market are not free, and their trial versions only allow you to view the recoverable data, but not actually recover it. Wise Data Recovery is different. It is completely free and allows you to recover data without any additional, hidden or visible cost.

Wise Data Recovery can recover any kind of file, may it be photos, music, videos, documents, archives, and so on. Furthermore, it can recover them from various types of storage drives, like local hard disks, but also USB Flash drives, memory cards, and so on.

This handy application is also very easy-to-use. Its interface is simple, neat and straightforward, allowing even complete beginners to use it without any problem at all. I also like about it a lot the fact that it clearly indicates if the files found during the scan can actually be recovered anymore or they’re lost for good. It will mark the scanned files as "Good", "Poor", "Very Poor", or "Lost", helping you know if recovering them is still a solution or not.

Last but not least, Wise Data Recovery is also lightweight and fast. The program is small and neat, and the offered scanning speed is more than satisfactory.

In conclusion, Wise Data Recovery is one of the few data recovery solutions that I recommend, as trying it will cost you nothing and might actually help you all the way to recover lost data and not just “preview” its existence in a list of scan results.
