With so many companies offering free data recovery software, it can be difficult to decide which program is the best for your needs. Here is a list of some of the popular and effective data recovery programs on the market.
Data Rescue by Pro soft
The Data Rescue program makes the process of data recovery simple thanks to the disk imaging technology through which every bit of data is copied and maintained for retrieval. However, the program has one weakness; it does not support remote data recovery which may be a disadvantage.
Easy Recovery by Kroll
Kroll On track has launched the professional edition of the Easy Recovery software which used specially developed filtering tools to sort data before recovery can commence. It is necessary to go over the files once before initiating recovery because the software may err in the identification of the correct file format.
Phoenix by Stellar
The Phoenix data recovery software from Stellar is a professional data recovery package that allows specific files to be searched by specifying the file type. On the down side, the software can take longer than other data recovery programs to recover files from your computer.
Seagate is a relatively simple yet efficient data recovery program. It is well suited for retrieving files from SSD as well as HDD devices. The software even works well with reformatted data storage devices. Some aspects of the functionality are limited, especially with the absence of RAID recovery support.
The R-Studio data recovery program has a feature that enables the performance to be scaled up so that more files can be processed for recovery. There is a downside to the project, particularly a difficult to navigate user interface that does not make option menus clearly visible to the user.
Ease US is an efficient data recovery program that can be used to recover data in the event of a logical data loss. The program is compatible with the hard disk drive and recovers almost all data files with a high degree of accuracy. However, it does not work with drives that have been reformatted.
Recover My Files from Get Data
Get Data offers the Recover My Files data recovery program for professional applications. Although it has been designed for professional users, the basic features are simple enough for non-professional users to manage. While it works well with the hard drive, its performance is poor when it comes to recovering files from micro SD devices.
Get Data Back by Run time
Get Data Back is the latest data recovery program from Run time. This is probably one of the simplest and easy to use programs on the market and even recovers files from reformatted hard drives efficiently. However, it does not recover files from reformatted micro SD card.
Power Data Recovery from Mini Tool
The Power Data Recovery program from Mini Tool overcomes a frequent weakness in data recovery programs by recovering files successfully from reformatted SSD devices. This, unfortunately, is the only comparative advantage the program has as it performs poorly in terms of recovering data from micro SD devices.
