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.

"Holy Bat Balls IT WORKS"

May 04, 2016  |  By chasingcarz

2016-05-04 18:14:09  |  By chasingcarz

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 10.0

Pros

I believe in God now

Cons

well....I believe in God now

Summary

Got an external hard drive and THOUGHT I was copying my files (Every last one and 8 years worth!) but I was MOVING them. I accidentally moved them onto the drive twice overfilling the drive so I was like, well hell I will delete it and start over. So I did. And ya, there was nothing to start over with. Went through 3 other programs including the infamous Recuva (nice program tho) but none of them brought up my book which I've been working on for two years and didn't upload to Google docs because I have a stalker ex who keeps hacking my accounts. Well, I did that myself... it turns out. 111k words gone. None of the programs even brought that one specific file up as a recover option while bringing ALL of the other doc files up to recover (yay tho). This was my last attempt before a total rewrite and holy bat balls...this program brought it up. Its saving as I speak so I wanted to write a review to say thank you for making a program that actually works. I can recover this one file free thank god but I WILL be buying this on payday to recover everything else as the other programs corrupted many picture files so they are only partially visible. I'm including this program in the acknowledgements in my book. I owe you. Thank you.

"works as advertise but pricey"

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 10.0

Pros

can recover most files as long do not re-write any data on the formated disk.

Cons

took 3 days and 3 nights to completed.
a little pricey, there are other brand such as sandisk recovery that offer less.

Summary

this is my first recovery software. My 1TB western digital passport essential external hardrive got corrupted and almost cannot view all data from it. In frustration, I combined the two partitions (500gb each) into one partition by formatting the disk. This recovery software took 3 days and 3 nights to complete the scan! Can recovery most of the files, but the price is a little pricey than I assume. IF they can sell this less than USD 30 I would be happy to recommended it to someone else, but there probably better software out there with better price to offer. I purchase this software in desperation to recover most photos and videos since 2008 (note that I did the recovery in 2016)

"Don't Waste Your Money. Doesn't work whatsoever"

March 03, 2016  |  By Oxxbridge Galleries

2016-03-03 07:53:02  |  By Oxxbridge Galleries

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.9

Pros

Fancy marketing is about all you get.

Cons

The free version shows you the names of the files but after you actually purchase you quickly discover that the files it recovers are unusable and corrupt! I accidentally deleted some files. Went to recorver it with EasUs and after paying for it recovered 10% of what I lost. But almost all of it was corrupt. All this program does is waste your money.

You are better off going to a local computer shop that does data recovery. They typically charge about $200 but there success rate is much better and most reputable shops don't charge you if they cant recover your data. Call around and many will do it in the $200 price range.

Finally don't copy onto the hard drive that you deleted the files from. Indeed don't do anything to it (and this includes EaseUS Deep Scan option). All this does is make it harder for someone to actually recover the data later on.

Summary

EaseUS is a scam of a product. Most serious reviewers of it complain of the same thing. It looks to have been created in China and its ranks high on google because they market it heavily. Save yourself the aggravation and go to a professional.

"Look elsewhere, this software doesn't deliver."

February 26, 2016  |  By andrewklotz

2016-02-26 22:01:30  |  By andrewklotz

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.9

Pros

Trial version let's you see that the program doesn't deliver, before spending your money.

Cons

Program doesn't deliver on what it promised. I was attempting to recover deleted photos from an SD card. Recovered 3 usable photos out of 199 total files, windows couldn't open 196 of them. Very disappointed. Would have paid if the trial worked properly. Do not spend money on this software, you'll be let down.

Summary

Tried it, am looking for software that will work properly.

"EaseUS Data Recov.Wizard Version:9.8(build 20151210)Mac"

February 23, 2016  |  By clancesmithak

2016-02-23 11:55:45  |  By clancesmithak

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.9

Pros

Pro's were not found with this product or the company. Its nearly shareware quality from the 90's. There support communications equal nothing more than a google it response.

Cons

There is no uninstaller for Mac. When I asked customer support how to uninstall their product, e.g. what was installed and I'll remove them. I was provided a website link to generic directions to delete files where there might be files. I was told to look for them. There were no names of files provided. http://www.easeus.com/support.htm or any recommendations. I am unsure if there are invisible files to remove either, but after four emails they have provided no specific information

Summary

The free version is limited to tiny files. Did not find mine. Also, there is no way to know if there are invisible files installed by the software unless you know where the files are put and have some knowledge of terminal. This is because customer support expects you to be able to find them yourself. The following link is not an advertisement, instead it is what is provided by their support people: http://www.cultofmac.com/90060/how-to-completely-uninstall-software-under-mac-os-x-macrx/
Basically there support model is - google it
This is not the 90's, there are better products out there, swipe right on this product

"30-Day Money Back Guarantee is Misleading; Read closely"

December 19, 2015  |  By wfcleaning

2015-12-19 11:16:53  |  By wfcleaning

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.8

Pros

N/A There was nothing redeeming about using this product.

Cons

Expensive.
Doesn't do what they say.
Misleading advertising.
No integrity.
No customer service. They really don't care if you're an unhappy customer

Summary

They say "30 Day Money Back Guarantee" but not if it's a technical problem with the device. A technical problem with the device is the reason I needed the recovery software. BOTTOM LINE: QUESTIONABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES. IT DIDN"T WORK and THEY DIDN'T REFUND MY MONEY.

"Perhaps FREE means another thing in their language."

December 06, 2015  |  By TomS1222

2015-12-06 10:08:10  |  By TomS1222

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.8

Pros

It did find 969 GB on a partition that the Windows 10 installation unallocated. Just need to Spend $70.00 for this "FREE" software to restore the files.

Cons

It's like serving you a big juicy steak and then tell you you can only smell it but not eat it until you pay $70.00 Dollars. On the positive side the software did find 969 GB of data that was removed by Windows 10 installation. Windows 10 simply removed one of 2 Partitions on my 3TB hard drive and of course it was the partitions that I backed everything up to. Before spending $70+ Dollars I will search elsewhere for a similar program that will do it for a lot less.

Summary

Look elsewhere for programs that do the same thing for a lot less.

"Software is free but your data will cost you......"

November 24, 2015  |  By MDCWLAF

2015-11-24 12:42:25  |  By MDCWLAF

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.5

Pros

It found all files on a drive that was unreadable by Windows.

Cons

I wasted 5 hours on 120GB of data to find out that you are only allowed to recover 1 GB in the free version.

Summary

If you are recovering very small amounts of data, this is an okay free software. Anything else will cost you what you can get elsewhere for half the price.

"Gets the job done."

November 10, 2015  |  By MarkJacobs

2015-11-10 00:27:37  |  By MarkJacobs

 |  Version: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 9.5

Pros

The easiest backup program to use that I've tried.
The free version does incremental and differential backups.
Good scheduling options.

Cons

Can be slower than others like Macrium Reflect.

Summary

If you want a full featured free backup program, EaseUS is my current recommendation.
