Data Recovery Wizard Professional
Data Recovery Wizard Professional is a do it yourself data recovery software that runs under Microsoft Windows and can recover files lost from Windows or Linux partitions. It can recover deleted files and recover files lost through formatting or partitioning, or as a result of a destructive virus or a system crash. It can also recover complete partitions that are lost to the system.
Data Recovery Wizard Professional offers three options for data recovery. To recover deleted files, including files that have been shift-deleted, bypassing the Recycle Bin, or after the Recycle Bin has been emptied, use the Deleted File Recovery option. Just pick the drive that held the missing files and Data Recovery Wizard will scan the drive to recover your lost data. You will then be presented with a folder tree containing all the files that were found. Browse through the folders and select the files you wish to recover. There's a built-in previewer to let you see the contents of some common file types like photo images and text files.
The Complete File Recovery option can be used if the drive was reformatted or repartitioned, or when Deleted File Recovery fails to find the files you lost. This file recovery option "deep scans" the drive, bypassing the file system. It takes longer, but finds many more files.
The Partition Recovery option is for use when the drive containing your data has disappeared from Windows. Data Recovery Wizard first scans the drive to find traces of the original partitioning information. You then select a partition, and recovery then continues as for Complete File Recovery.
Data Recovery Wizard supports Windows FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT, NTFS4 and NTFS5 partitions, plus Linux Ext2 and Ext3 partitions. It can recover data from NTFS compressed drives and dynamic drives.
