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.

"Fraudulent ripoff company. False advertising. BEWARE"

Pros

There is nothing positive to say about these scammers.

Cons

Absolute ripoff they claim that their workstation product can be managed by their Backup Center and it works for 30 days just long enough to where they won't give a refund. Then they want more money. I have filed a claim with Paypal

"Not free - misleading"

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 10.8

Pros

Interface looks nice

Cons

The introduction here states that "Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition recovers deleted files". This isn't true. It will identify the files that have been deleted, yes, but in order to recover then you have to pay. I was asked to pay £98 which is a huge amount. Sorry. Will try elsewhere.

Summary

I obviously have no problem with companies charging for software (I have been a software developer myself). What's annoying is the misleading description.

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 10.8

Pros

None that I can think of.

Cons

Hard to use. Tried to recover MP3 files but the "recovered" files were not usable. Sent in a tech support request that was ignored.

Summary

Total ripoff. Don't waste your money.
