How to recover data with Wondershare Data recovery

In order to use this tool for data recovery, one is required to download and install it. That done, you are set and ready to begin.

The next item on your list of steps is to select an appropriate drive. This is dependent upon the drive from where you want to recover data.

It could be a damaged or unmounting internal drive partition. You can also choose on an external drive, USB drive, DVDs, CDs, and SD cards.

Once you select an appropriate drive, you can proceed on to scan. There are 3 scanning options available with this recovery utility software.

These include quick scan, deep scan, and both in which case scanning automatically goes from quick then to deep.

You can choose to scan the entire drive, a partition, or just sector. Wondersharewizard has capacity to handle all that. However, scan option for folders and specific file types is not supported by this tool.

You have the option to choose from the following scan options; quick, deep, and all types. The duration of time spent on all these is dependent on the scan option selected.

Although needless to say, quick scan is faster than deep scan which is also faster than all the two combined. Combining the two does a good job checking your drive for lost files, though it takes much longer.

Quick scan is best for recovering recently deleted files as well as unmounting drive partitions. Without having to use a recovery vault, this scan option recovers all your files with their original names.

Deep scan on the other hand uses file patterns to reconstruct missing data. It works best for recovering files that were deleted long time ago. If your disk partitions aren’t responding appropriately, RAW volumes, you can also use this scan option to retrieve them.

You can pause, save and even load scan sessions and resume whenever convenient. You can keep track of scan progress from the progress bar.

When scanning is done with, proceed on to recover the files. This is done by simply clicking the recover button.

Well if you have more computers, more as it could reach for up to 100 computers, then it may require you a quote in order to have one. But then in Wondershare, that offer is only available for Mac users, preferably for businesses. As much as we would love to have it, but Wondershare does not offer the same service for those PC users.

If you do not have enough budget to buy this software, then you may also just have the trial version.

You may try the software and test out the things that you wish to have, but then in the trial version, you can only recover files that would go up to 100MB of data. But at least, you can see the files that you could have recovered, and then make them recoverable if you will purchase a license.

Being Mobile

If you have lost your files somewhere else, not in your PC or your Mac, which means you have lost it in your mobile devices, then you do not need to worry because you will be able to recover it using the mobile recovery feature of Wondershare which is called Dr. Fone.

It could recovery even your MP3 players and digital cameras, so you will not worry about it anymore.

Hard drive cloning, startup-disk recovery for non-booting computers and optical media recovery is also available in Wondershare.


Performance and testing

To verify and evaluate developer claims of excellent data recovery across different operating systems, we decided to perform some tests.

For the first test, we wanted to check the effectiveness of quick and deep scan. For this, we used a 1TB hard drive. We created some files in one partition then deleted the same. So essentially we wanted to see if Wondershare quick and deep scan functions were able to find and return all the files.

For the second test, we created a 500GB Partition in our test drive. So we basically wanted to check the efficiency of partition and file recovery. The results were very amazing.

For the first test, quick scan lasted just 5 seconds. We were also able to recover the entire partition. So in terms of performance, we give it a 95%.

Deep Scan lasted 7 hours and 30 minutes while full drive scan lasted 12 hours. That was slightly extended when compared to other data recovery software. For the second test, we were able to recover the deleted disk partition together with the files.

All of the files that we tried to test apparently appeared and nothing was lost. The Word Files, Video Files and Image Files were all recovered.

Not just that, also the Recovered Deleted Partition that we tried to delete earlier we all recovered. Overall, this software performed excellently at recovering files and deleted disk partitions.


Customer Support

If you do not understand how things go in this software, then you may contact their customer support. It can be found by visiting the support site of Wondershare.

The categories are all separated so that you will skim around the page easily. If you would wish to find something specific, they also have a search tool to guide you quickly.

The online user manuals also explain itself and there are even video tutorials inserted so that you can get everything in a good way.

Of course, submitting the queries in their email is also an available option. You can send messages 24/7, but they are also notable in not that exactly prompt in getting back to you. We tried sending inquiries, they were answered not until two weeks have passed, and a reminder came.


Conclusion

Overall, this one is really good software that you should test out when talking about data recovery tools. Wondershare Data Recovery truly lives up to its name. Not just that, even you are a person who is not that familiar in the computer world, you will easily understand and have everything that you need to have in a good manner.

The tool is very intuitive so you will not have a hard time at all. If there are things that you could define in this software as bad, it would be in their deep scanning and customer support.

 

The deep scans really last so long, but at least it works. The customer service,on the other hand, it seems like they do not want you to send some queries at all.

There might be some famous and good features that are missing in Wondershare Data Recovery, but at least, with the features that it has, it works really well. So, have it tried! It’s just a budget-friendly one though.
