    "Fastest And Most Complete Scans"

    May 14, 2012  |   By xzendor7

    Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.5.1

    Pros

    I've Tried 5 Other File Recovery Applications Before EaseUs, And Not Only Are The Applications Slow They Did Not Discover Many Files. In Just Two Hours EaseUS Found Almost 94000 Files Files On My Damaged 500GB Hard Drive. The Other Applications Took Several Days To Discover Less Than 400.

    Cons

    None So Far.

    Summary

    If The Free Version Is This Good Can't Wait To See What The Paid Version Can Do In Recovering Deleted Files From A Damaged Hard Drive.

    "Recovers Files Corrupted by Windows Scan Disk"

    May 12, 2012  |   By HildieGarde

    Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.5.1

    Pros

    Recovered many files lost when I clicked OK to run scan disk on USB drive

    Cons

    Hit or miss. Some files are recoverable others aren't. Not very easy to use and very slow when recovering an entire 300GB USB drive.

    Summary

    When you stupidly allow Microsoft Windows to "repair" your drive and instead it trashes it, this program seems to be able to recover some of the files. If you only need a few under 1Gb this is a great free solution. I tested it out on a few files and found that some worked and others didn't. There really isn't any way to tell if it worked without opening the recovered file. I guess it depends how trashed the original file was. I ended up buying the full version to recover as much of my drive as possible.

    "Great Program"

    May 1, 2012  |   By coach555

    Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.5.1

    Pros

    EaseUS Data Recover Wizard worked very well to recover information from a HHD that crashed. I was able to recover all of my pictures and music after upgrading. It was the best investment I have made in a long time.

    Cons

    Scan time was slow.

    Summary

    Overall this was a great program.

    "Very efficient and well working piece of software."

    April 20, 2012  |   By TryneTrine

    Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.5.1

    Pros

    Easy installation, easy use, and ability to rescue large amount of files on "free amount" to get a good try before deciding if to buy or not, and rescued an important rtf-file none other software I tried managed to even find on my USB stick.

    Cons

    None so far..

    Summary

    Without doubt the best recovery software of the 10-15 I tried, was able to find loads more of files than the others, and kept file names and file structire. Also only software that managed to recover "raw files", the before mentioned rtf-file among them. Also by far the best amount of free recovery to try out software in large scale before having to decide if worth to pay for to get limitless recovery.

    "Awesome! Thanks you EaseUs you saved my LIFE =)"

    April 14, 2012  |   By infs_plm100

    Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.5.1

    Pros

    It worked seamlessly. I accidentally formatted my WD external drive and my LIFE was all gone. I found this thru Download. I bought the licensed edition instead of free edition.
    Works wonders. Thank you so so sossososooooooooooooooo much.

    Cons

    None except for the 'waiting game'. PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE. The more files you have the longer you will have to wait and wait and wait. It's my LIFE and MEMORIES at stake so I have to be patient. lol

    Summary

    Works wonders. Even my Symantec antivirus provided an information that thousands including me use this software. Overall, it was worth every penny.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    "Use Zero Assumption Recovery Instead"

    April 10, 2012  |   By DarkNetDragon

    Version: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition 5.5.1

    Pros

    Ive tried running this, Piriform's Recuva (Piriform created CCleaner which is good for removing temp data and internet data to help your computer run faster)

    Cons

    This didn't recover the files in accessible form for me

    Summary

    Use this program, Zero Assumption Recovery - http://roomdl.com/zero-assumption-recovery/
    It's free and it scans your desired drive for pictures that you want to recover, http://youtu.be/2M67kzSHm90?hd=1
    here is a tutorial video of how to use it
