Partition Recovery

Device List Page

This module is designed for data recovery from Hard Disk including crashed file system, mistakenly deleted partitions, hidden partitions, drives with failed operating/file system, and drives suffered from virus.

When you select this recovery module, select the file types you want to recover and then you will see a list of physical devices that are connected to Host Computer.

If your device is not found on the list, please click "Refresh List" button to make the device seen in the list or verify whether the device is properly connected or there are any hardware problems with the device.
Otherwise you may choose the device from which you want to recover data and then click "NEXT" to start searching partitions on it. After the Quick Partition Searching process completes, the Data Recovery Wizard workspace will display a Partition List Page.
If the Quick Partition Searching can not find any partitions or if you press "Cancel" in Quick Partition Searching, it will transfer to the Intelligent Searching to search partitions automatically.

Partition List Page

In fact, In the Partition List Page, all the partitions listed here are in abnormal state and usually you cannot see them in the Windows Explorer as well as Disk Management Console. Therefore, they are all marked with "?". That's why this recovery module will be named as "Partition Recovery". If you have recognized the partition you want to recover data, select the partition and then press "NEXT" to begin "Building Directory". Then the number of the found objects will be dynamically updated with the searching process. Before giving you the final result, the program will prompt a message "If the files you need are not found, please select the "Full Scan"." Just click "OK". After it finishes, the program will list all found files in the File List Page.
If the partition you need is not listed, tick the Full Scan (If the partition is not found, please check it and click NEXT) to "Intelligent Searching" for searching the device again. After the exhaustive scanning, every possibly existed partition will be detected and listed out.

Select Recognized Partition Page
The Intelligent Searching module will scan the whole device, collect and analyze every byte on the device, and then you will be shown a list of partitions possible on it.  

For each one listed here, the Data Recovery Wizard displays a number of statistics, including the file system of partition, a suggestion on its data quality, its size in GB/MB, its system option and amount of matching files and folders.
In default state, the partition that was suggested in High was chosen. And the others are not chosen. This will give you a good idea of which partition will yield the best results.
If the state of the partition, which has been found, is good enough, in the system options column, you will find FAT options if the file system of this partition is FAT12/16/32 or MFT option if NTFS partition. Try to use the first FAT copy or second FAT copy, or maybe even there is no FAT to get the best quality of data (depending on the nature of the damage to the disk and fragmentation of the files prior to the loss). And the MFT for NTFS partition shares the same usage.

The Data Recovery Wizard will permit you choosing 4 partitions at most to recover the data. And then, press "NEXT" button. The Data Recovery Wizard will launch the "Building directory" procedure to searching the files. You will see file/folder tree soon.
Go to "Working with Found Data" section of this Help manual for further steps. (If you are familiar with the file system details, you can change "Option" before clicking "NEXT" button.

Continue Previous Recovery

Once you have performed a scan on the "Complete Recovery" or "Partition Recovery", then The Data Recovery Wizard will automatically save the searching result, and later on, when you rerun the recovery module, the "Previous Recovery" graphic option will appear in the list for you to choose to continue just from the location where it was stopped.
