Editors' Review

Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition recovers deleted files, even if you've emptied the Recycling Bin or deleted them directly (and provided they haven't been securely deleted with multiple passes). It can recover data from your hard drive, USB drives, memory cards, and other storage devices. It's compatible with dynamic disks and all Windows file systems, from FAT to NTFS and EXT, and it can skip bad sectors automatically for quicker scanning. Easeus Data Recovery Wizard is fully functional freeware with a 1GB recovery limit that serves as a trial for a paid upgrade. The latest version of Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition sports an improved user interface and Windows 8 compatibility.

True to its name, Easeus Data Recovery Wizard is a wizard-based utility, starting with three simple choices: Deleted File Recovery, Complete Recovery, and Partition Recovery. It has an excellent Help file, too. It's easy to see the program in action; if you don't have files to recover, make some. That's what we did, copying data from a USB drive, deleting it, and emptying the Recycle Bin before starting the Deleted File Recovery Wizard.

The tool's first screen let us search for a lost file automatically or by file type and also opt to ignore bad sectors. Easeus Data Recovery Wizard quickly found the files in automatic mode, displaying its results in a separate, tabbed File Preview window. We selected the files we wanted to recover and pressed Next. We chose an output directory from a screen that displayed available drive capacity -- a nice touch. The recovery operation finished almost immediately. We clicked on the drive link in the notification screen, and the destination folder opened with our recovered data intact and available.

Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition is a capable performer, even with the 1GB limit. Most users probably want to recover a specific piece of data, like a file or folder that was deleted accidentally. If you've deleted something you meant to keep, try the free tool first. If you need more, you don't have to download or scan your system again but can upgrade Easeus Data Recovery Wizard in place.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.6.1.

"We're all used to Free not meaning Free"

August 20, 2015  |  By zanetti2000

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

Prettier than apps that do the same thing for Free (like Testdisk-7.0)

Cons

$69
I had a corrupt HD.
elapsed time/time to complete message was off by about 1000%.
msg. says 2:35 hrs to go. after 11 (yes eleven) hours the estimate was now 1:25:00 to go. I stopped it.
I showed me files (preview feature was pitiful) then wanted $69 to actually restore any of them...
Hardlye a "free trial version".

Summary

but I looked and didn't see any indication that EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard would be "under handed".

"Bad software"

August 17, 2015  |  By LeoDN

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

Deep scan works and find files

Cons

recovery doesn't work
all my recovered data is corrupted
recovery software damage hard drives
refund policy

Summary

Did all the steps for deep scan to recover my 500 gb formatted HDD, scan was successful, bought the licence, and recovered all data, after i recovered all the data to a new hard driver nothing worked every thing is corrupted.Reached to their customer service, she is insisting on doing another scan to my dead hard drive, the initial scan took 3 days and their software damaged my HD after deep scan , i have the data but everything is corrupted.Bad product and waste of money.

""Free" Limited use"

July 15, 2015

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.0

Pros

It found plenty of files.

Cons

It didn't find the specific files I was looking for, and even better they limit the amount of data you can recover, unless you pay for the full version.

Summary

As someone who works in IT security and forensics I highly recommend avoiding this program. Sure it will find files and data with the deep scan, but there are better products that can be acquired for much cheaper if not for free. This is just another pathetic attempt to hold your data for ransom to make another company rich.
