The success of your data recovery depends largely on your adherence to this crucial rule. When we say to make no change to the damaged disk, we mean that you basically should do nothing on the disk. This includes the followings:
You will risk permanent data loss if you do not heed these warnings. If you already have made one of these mistakes, don't worry. Just don't make any more changes to the Bad Device. You can use the easy recovery software - Data Recovery Wizard trial version free to see if your data is still recoverable. And even if the Data Recovery Wizard can't detect your Bad Device, all is not lost. If your Bad Device is HDD, it is not detectable by computer's BIOS. It's URGENT for you to turn off the power of the device immediately! You will not be able to recover the device with any commercially available utilities, and you should consult a professional data recovery service provider.
You can contact the drive manufacturer for assistance with installing their drive as a slave (secondary) device. Be sure that the primary drive is loading Windows.
Choose "Deleted File Recovery" if you want to recover the files that are intentionally (or accidentally) deleted.
Choose "Complete Recovery", if you've lost data after computer crash, virus activity or formatting Bad Drive.
Choose "Partition Recovery", if you've not found the partition from which you want to recover data by "Deleted File Recovery" and "Complete Recovery".
We also recommend that you build a brand new system now if your bad drive has been severely corrupted. Use another device other than the bad one. Install the operating system, then install the programs from their installation CD-ROMS. Finally you can import the recovered data to the new drive.
Verify that you have got back all the data you need. Do not recycle the bad drive unless you are absolutely sure about all wanted data is in place. It is a good idea to wait for 4 weeks before re-using the bad drive. If the bad drive has any mechanical problem you definitely must not use it again.
If you notice that there is any mechanical problems on the drive such as bad sectors and irregular noises, you need to immediately stop the recovery and make a drive image first (You can use our Free Sector by Sector Backup software - EaseUS Todo Backup). When it is successfully created, you can recover from this drive image as the same as recover from the original drive. A mechanically damaged drive can fail entirely at any moment. It must be your primary goal to fetch all the raw data from such a drive as soon as possible. Making an image also reduces the drive load because each sector is read only once. Professional Data Recovery companies always make an image of the drive before trying to retrieve any file.
