Step 3: Preview files by Path, File or Time and recover lost files

By default, the Any Data Recovery chooses Quick Scan. The scanning processing bar will reach 100% in about 1 minute. You can then preview the recoverable files by path, file type or the time when this file was created.

Note: If you still cannot find the files you want to recover, you can try Deep Scan mode. This scanning will scan out more files and consequently requires more time.
