Editors' Review


Wise Data Recovery is a fast, sleek data recovery program, but before you get your hopes up you should know that a large percentage of deleted files it does detect cannot be restored. Still, if you're in the type of dire straits that you need this program, it's definitely worth trying.

When you install Wise Data Recovery, be aware that it auto-checks boxes to download other programs. Uncheck these if you don't want the extras. Once installed, the program lets you scan your hard drive or an external drive for deleted files. It checks to see if they're still hanging around on your hard drive or if they've been deleted for good. You can organize the files it finds by directory, by likelihood of recovery, by file size, or by the date they were last modified. Wise Data Recovery found about 52,000 files on a drive and did it in a matter of seconds. Sadly, about 40 percent of the files were unrecoverable or "poor," which means there's a low chance of getting them back. Luckily, most of the "good" files were picture and video files -- the stuff you'd probably be looking for. You can recover multiple files at once, but you can't save them to the drive they came from. The program's clean, stylish menu makes it easy to find and select the exact file you're looking for.

Wise Data Recovery looks good and works very fast, finding important video and photo files and other important documents. It will only take a couple minutes of your time to see if this app can recover the deleted files you're looking for, so there's no harm in giving it a shot.

"Could not recover files."

None. This program did not work.


I tried to use this program to recover pics from the micro SD card in my phone immediately after I accidentally deleted the folder on my phone. It couldn't recover anything. I used a different program and got all my pictures back. The program that DID work for me was Wonder Data Recovery.

"Very slow, doesn't even detect the problem drive!!"

Wise data recovery performs far less than the expectations. Stellar Phoenix software performs relatively faster and has best success ratio.


Everything. Don't go for it.


I've problem external hard drive of 500 GBs which suddenly become inaccessible (asking to format first every time I'm trying to open it). Wise data recovery fails to detect the drive no matter how I try. Additionally, it'll not able to detect if i connect the drive externally.

After getting 100 of failed attempts, I've tried Stellar Phoenix Software which is supposed to little costly but does the much needed job. It recovered over 67% percentage of important files and folders in less than 4 hours which is best among the rest of the available tools.
