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.

    "Worked well when Recuva could not recover lost photos."

    August 18, 2014   |   By kusmo

    Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 8.0

    Pros

    Worked very well when I needed to recover photos from a micro SDHC card.

    Cons

    Not quite 100% recovery, but very close.

    Summary

    Works very well and should be used when Recuva does not do the job. You will need to buy if recovery exceeds 1Gb.

    "Awful, just awful"

    May 03, 2014   |   By tigro84

    Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 7.5

    Pros

    Really positive comments by others on CNET

    Cons

    Comments are probably bogus

    Summary

    Didn't work. support doesn't exist (as in, there is no one who can support it, not hyperbole, real). If it doesn't work for you, tough. sales team told me no refunds. I complained, still no refunds. I'm sure their software works for some people, but if it doesn't (my case) you are SOL.

    "This is not "trialware""

    April 24, 2014   |   By TheRealBrenderick

    Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 7.5

    Pros

    It does work if you pay the stupidly expensive cost of $79. It's not worth close to that.

    Cons

    A total scam of a company- they purchase google keywords for 'free' and 'trialware'. Trialware is, by definition, full version software with either limited time usage, or limited number of usage. This program is neither- it's a bait-and-switch- you run the 'trial' version, and what do you get at the end? "Ha Ha, there is your data, now PAY ME or you cant access any of it."

    There are much better and affordable tools out there, avoid these people.
