When performing a data recovery with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard we recommend that you proceed as follows:

  • You can feel free to use this tool because our data recovery software performs non-destructive data recovery and it can automatically skip bad sectors for quick scanning and avoid any further damage to your data.
  • After data loss, please stop using the bad drive any more, and immediately download EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, save and then install it on a drive other than the "bad drive" on which your files were lost. Make sure you have sufficient space on the "good drive" for storing the recovered data.
  • Start EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and choose the right recovery module for data recovery. You can select the file formats of your lost data before and then choose the "bad drive" to be scanned. Check the search results screen and you can use the preview feature to display the file that you are trying to recover.
  • When you make sure your files have been found and intend to copy the recovered files over to the "good drive", you need to purchase a license code if you have not already done so. Do not quit EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for purchasing or entering the license code, just enter the code and continue the recovery process. It is a good idea to start with the files you need most.
  • The machine you are running EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard on can have any of the following operating systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 2003, Windows 2008 and Windows 2012.

Data recovery important tips

It is recommended not to recycle the "bad drive" before you are absolutely sure about this. It is a good idea to wait a period of time, maybe several weeks before re-using the "bad drive". If the "bad drive" had any mechanical problems you definitely must not use it again.

If you drive is experiencing any mechanical problems, you'd better make a drive image first. When successfully created, you can recover from this drive image as you would recover from the original drive. A mechanically damaged drive can fail entirely every second. It must be your primary goal to pull all raw data off such a drive as fast as possible. Making an image also reduces the load on the drive because each sector is read only once. Professional data recovery companies always make an image of the drive before trying to retrieve any files.

If your drive has a physical problem and you're unable to obtain a usable drive image, we recommend that you contact a data recovery lab for data recovery service.

If you divert from the process described above, always make sure you:

  • Never install EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard on the "bad drive"
  • Stop using your "bad drive" once data is lost and take immediate actions
  • Do not have temporary files and folders use the "bad drive"
  • Never copy the recovered files to the "bad drive"
  • Make an image first if the "bad drive" has mechanical problems
