7-Data Recovery Suite is a file recovery tool that helps you recover lost and deleted files. This utility attempts to recover photos, music, and videos that were accidentally deleted or lost in circumstances like disk formatting or virus infections. The app can be used to recover files from any type of storage unit, including local drives and partitions, external USB disks, SD cards, and even from Android phones and tablets.
This recovery solution is capable of running thorough, advanced analysis to find your files, while remaining simple and easy to use. Its wizard-like interface walks you through every step of the recovery process by means of clear instructions.
The first screen you see when you launch the app displays the different recovery options available. Complete Recovery attempts to restore files from local partitions, no matter if they're damaged or have been recently formatted. Deleted Recovery runs an analysis to detect files erased from the Recycle Bin or after using the Shift + Delete key combination. If you need to recover media files like music, photos or video, Digital Media Recovery is the way to go.
Before selecting a drive and starting the scan, you can set the app to look for specific file types or size; this will narrow down the search and produce faster results. Besides media files, the application can detect documents in many formats, archives (.cab, .rar, .tar, etc.), as well as emails and databases. When the scan is over, the app will show the results, letting you easily select, and, in some cases, preview the files you want to recover.
As you know, chances of successfully recovering data are greater for recently deleted files. So, when data loss occurs, a powerful and efficient tool like this may save your nerves.
