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.

"Awesome!!!!"

May 10, 2013  |  By kool_kans

 |  Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.8.5

Pros

Simple and easy interface.
Recovery of deleted/corrupted files are easy.

Cons

Its took quite some time to scan the drive.
Can have an option to recover from a particular directory instead of the whole drive.

Summary

I downloaded this software not for recovering a deleted file or folder. Actually the folder I wanted to access was corrupted/not readable. I tried CHKDSK and tried to recover but of no use. Finally I tried this software and bingo! It recovered the whole folder which had all the files.

This is a super software. Go for it.

"Great program."

April 18, 2013  |  By uhohitsthepopo

 |  Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.8.5

Pros

Finds all you lost data.

Cons

Need to buy the full version to save said data.

Summary

Used VirtualLabs. Do NOT use that program. What a scam, see my review on that for more. Used EaseUs data Recovery Freeware and was surprised. It found everything faster than VirtualLabs. Took a chance and bought the full version. I was not disappointed and neither will you should you use it. Good luck. Hope this helped.

"Piece of Junk for USB Drives"

April 12, 2013  |  By awilson99

 |  Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.8.5

Pros

Might actually work on Hard Disks

Cons

Ruins good data by destroying partitions on USB flash drives

Summary

Step 1 - insert USB Flash drive which had 1 file accidentally deleted

Step 2 - Run EaseUS Data Recovery Free

Step 3 - Choose "Deleted File Recovery" -- nothing found

Step 4 - Choose "Compete Recover" -- JPG files found and recovered, but not readable.

Entire USB drive is not usable. "Must be formatted before being used".

Thanks EaseUS for jacking up my drive and losing all the rest of my data. Should've backed up my pics before using your product.

Piece of crap.

"It worked on USB thumb drive!"

March 26, 2013  |  By mpower9

 |  Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.8.5

Pros

Some how I corrupted an old 256 mb thumb drive which had a bunch of junk and two tiny but important files on it, Word documents with all my passwords on them. When I put the drive into my computer, Windows recognized it, but said it had to be formated. I did not format it, but downloaded this software which allows recovery of 1 gb of data in the free edition before requiring a paid upgrade. The software was easy to use and seemed prepared to recover all the files on the drive, but I only needed three which were all successfully restored to my main hard drive. I don't know how it would have done with larger or more complex files, but it did exactly what I needed.

Cons

None for my needs.

Summary

I am retaining this software on my computer. If I need it again, I would certainly consider upgrading.
