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.

"Time-consuming scam - stay clear !"

March 18, 2015  |  By bjorge.saether

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 8.6

Pros

<NOTHING !>

Cons

How it works:
1. Time-consuming (talking DAYS for a few 100 GBs) scan of HDD
2. Reports a LOT of recoverable data
3. You pay $70
4. You get nothing sensible
5. You contact Ease US to discuss a refund . . . HAHAHA !

Summary

Stay clear !
- they even got the nerve to keep me on their mailing list !

"Great Backup data recovery for all Storage Devices"

March 15, 2015  |  By Woke77

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 8.6

Pros

I lost all my data and photos, from my PC. Some said there is nothing usable and I am searching over the past 24 hours almost ready to scream and give up all hope. I found Amrev Data Recovery software on a Google search and more recovery software and follow the step by step after few hours my entire data file, Massages & Photo are recover, wow thanks God!! It's really awesome data recovery software Thanks Amrev Software.

Cons

Very fast recovery process (at least for big files)

Summary

Overall, this software recovered all data that I didn't think I would get back. It was very fast and would ask me to "overwrite" files quite often, but it eventually worked.

Updated on Mar 15, 2015

would be really nice if it were really free

"Worst Support Ever"

March 07, 2015

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 8.6

Pros

Works for certain file types
Deep scan is particularly useful

Cons

Worst support team ever.
You will be questioned less if you committed a serious crime. Once you buy it and not satisfied for the product, there is a huge hassle for a refund process.They treat you as if you are lying to them and they ask you to open up your connections so that they can connect remotely to your system and check if you are not lying.
On Mac, email recovery does not work properly. You might not find whole lot of files/email messages.

Summary

Cons overpower pros and there are dozens of valid data recovery software available in the market. Therefore, you are better off trying a software solution which is based in the US, UK or Canada rather than China.

"Installs Spamware - Perfect Finds."

February 07, 2015  |  By mr1959

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 8.6

Pros

Been battling the spam ware since I installed and uninstalled.

Cons

Installs spam ware without any (much?) notification. Difficult to delete. Not worth the problem.

"Don't buy, their support is awful and they fake reviews"

January 08, 2015

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 8.6

Pros

It will recover data, so it gets two stars for at least doing what it's supposed to.

Cons

The licensing system is horrendous. Their support is 10x worse. If you make the slightest change to your system, your license will become invalid. Sometimes this happens simply from rebooting. The zenith of their tech support on this issue is "only install on one PC" and they reset your license. After a while they just stop assisting. There are too many free options that work just as well to pay money for horrible support and programming.

Summary

See "cons." Pretty much sums it up.
