Data loss can happen on any device that is capable of storing data. Even a simple misplacement is a loss of data, and it is a loss technically. There are number of reason for this like human error, file corruption, hardware, site relates thefts, viruses and damaging malware, mechanical damages of hard drive, power failure, spilling coffee, and other water damages etc. Thus the permanent loss of data needs to be avoided as it hinders the ongoing success of business.

Though there are number of ways for recovering the data but it is expensive business so it’s better to take substitute which is backing up your data, photos and key documents on regular basis. Even there are number of backup regimens but it is of less comfort. As and when you are aware that data loss had happened, first thing which is critical is stop using drive immediately which is affected.

Things to be considered while recovering data from corrupted or deleted devices as below:

  • Try not to use the partition or device you want to recover files.
  • Try not to save the recovered files onto same hard drive from which you are recovering.
  • Do not download, extract or install data recovery software onto the external device or hard drive that one wants to recover from.

There are number of tools available, but I personally recommend these 3 free recovery softwares below. Try some to ease the recovery of lost data.

1. EaseUS

EaseUS

    EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard recovers files which are deleted and even those emptied from Recycling Bin, or those deleted them directly. It will help to recover data from USB drives, hard drive, storage devices, and memory cards. It is compatible with all file system of Windows such as FAT and EXT, dynamic disks, and it can also skip bad sectors for quicker scanning automatically. The latest version is compatible with Windows 8 and improved user interface.

    EaseUS offers quick and deep scanning options which help you quickly restore lost files or lets you dig deeper to find files which weren’t recoverable using any other software or methods. Quick option is relatively quick and effective ways to get lost or deleted files without waiting for longer duration. Whereas, deep scanning is especially helpful when deleted files were severely corrupt and couldn’t be found using quick scanning option.

    2. DMDE

      DMDE Free Edition is capable of recovering data from number of drives which includes 2TB+ drives. DMDE let’s select drive and identifies mountable partitions and highlights the most obvious choice. This is a powerful software used for data recovery, editing, and searching on disks.

It is a simple wizard which opens to a file recovery mode by default.

        The user can choose the type of file they are trying to recover; be it a document, picture, emails, compressed files are among the list. One can target search to search all drives or specific location, or one can opt either to choose deep or quick scan. The deep scan takes more time, but provides much better results. You just need to click Start button and wait for the scan to complete.

        The option of Scan for non-deleted files mode of Recuva’s search returns recovering files from formatted or damaged partitions. Once completed, results are displayed, with recovered files along with rating, depending on files condition. One can recover files directly from here or move to Advanced Mode for better view, which offers file information, preview and peek at file’s header.

This is a portable tool and file size is 3MB only, which gives it an edge over other softwares.
