Data loss is something most people have had to deal with. Two types of cases are often brought to professional tech support. One is when a user has lost a file (or several files) and the other is when a whole disk partition is lost.
There is a number of reasons for such occurrences. A power outage, data corruption or a simple push of the wrong button – can all lead to data loss.
The good news is that often what appears to be a hopeless data-loss situation is actually a case in which it is possible to restore the lost data – be it a single file or a whole partition.
What makes such recovery possible, in a Windows environment (which we will be focusing on in this article) is partition data recovery software for Windows.
One such product is Disk Drill. The Disk Drill software supports both – file recovery as well as partition data recovery. It is easy to set up and use and will hopefully save you the trouble (and cost) of hiring professional help.
Lets cover a few notable features of Disk Drill:
Ease of Use:
The software interface is very efficient and user-friendly. It only takes a few clicks to go through the full file recovery process.
Device and File System Support:
In addition to internal and external hard drives the Disk Drill software can recover deleted files on USB flash drives, memory cards and more. NTFS, FAT, and exFAT file systems are supported.
As previously mentioned Disk Drill can help you restore deleted partitions, in addition to individual files.
Data Loss Prevention:
Once you recover the deleted files on your Windows system, the next order of business should be to prevent future data loss (or at least make future data recover easier).
The Recovery Vault feature of the Disk Drill software helps accomplish this task. The “vault” feature keeps a record of all files that have been deleted – giving you a better chance of easily recovering the files down the road.
Overall Disk Drill is a solid file recovery solution. A free version is available, so if you are looking for free file recovery software, give Disk Drill a try.
