What's the Best Photo Recovery Software?

Depending on how you lost the photos, you will have different ways to recover photos from a hard drive.

If you deleted your pictures using the "Delete" key or by right-clicking the photos and choosing "Delete", you can easily retrieve your pictures from your computer hard drive or external hard drive by going to the recycle bin on your PC.

If you have permanently deleted the photos from your hard drive using "Shift + Delete" or by formatting, the lost photos will bypass the recycle bin and be lost forever. If that's the case, the best way to perform photo recovery is to use the professional EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard - EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
