Anyone who uses a computer for a length of time surely experienced losing your important data due to different reasons such as accidental deletion, file system corruption, partition formatting, or hard drive crash. Of course, Windows (or Mac) offers tools like "Recycle Bin", "Trash", "System Restore" and "Backup and Restore" to enable you to rescue data. If you execute "Shift + Delete" (or "Command + Delete"), empty the Recycle Bin (or Trash), or leave your computer without backup, these tools don't work for you. You must have stomach-dropping sensation as soon as you realize you lose important data which may be gone for good.
Relax. When a file is deleted, it only disappears from the directory of files but remains in the hard drive unless the space that it occupied in the hard disk is overwritten by a new file, making the deleted file recoverable. In this case, Windows doesn't render you built-in data rescue functions, and you must utilize a third-party application.
Data Rescue is your best assistant to do so with no prior computer skills. It is all-in-one data rescue software that enables you to rescue deleted, formatted, lost photos, videos, music, documents and other files from hard drive, USB, memory card, SD card, memory stick and other portable devices.
