This utility thoroughly scans your computer for deleted or corrupted files, but the all-important restoration feature is completely disabled. The O&O DiskRecovery interface is well designed but complex. The list of file types is extensive, and the program is preset to search them all.
This program completely scans a selected drive, finds lost and damaged files, and saves them to a folder viewable only with O&O DiskRecovery. Scan time depends on the capacity of your storage media. Until you register this application, scanning and saving are all it offers. The trial version cannot restore at all, while the registered Personal Edition is limited to restoring 100 files per session. Intermediate and advanced users won't find this application hard to work with, but with its main function disabled, it's hard to get a feel for its full capabilities.
O&O DiskRecovery looks for and recovers data that's been unintentionally lost as a result of human error or defective software!

The enhanced data recovery wizard guides you intuitively through the search and restoration process. If your data was lost before you had a chance to install O&O DiskRecovery, the simplified instant installation can help you to recover your data. What to do when data is unintentionally lost. If you'd like to recover data that's been accidentally deleted, immediately stop all further write activity on the storage volume (memory card, hard disk, USB Stick, etc.) involved because only files that have not been overwritten are capable of being accurately restored. Even looking for a suitable data recovery product on the Internet and downloading it can overwrite important data sectors and make recovering data more difficult, if not impossible. That's why it's so important to have O&O DiskRecovery already installed on your computer, before trouble strikes.
