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.

    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD - FULL OF SPYWARE"

    September 10, 2014   |   By badDogUK

    Version: Wise Data Recovery 3.44.186

    Pros

    Will recover files - BUT!

    Cons

    This program is full of spyware - It changes your search provider, adds 'tools' without permission and you get lots of pop ups for dubious products and sites. Sailed past virus and malware scanner - Thanks Norton!. It cannot be removed though scanner has found potential Trojan - But his has not stopped it.

    I am going to have to nuke my computer to sort this - So a wasted 1 or 2 days with windows 8.1 updates!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD !!!!!!

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD

    "I have Any Data Recovery already"

    August 12, 2014   |   By Jonaatson

    Version: Wise Data Recovery 3.44.186

    Pros

    Any Data Recovery is better than that! It is the popular software which can retrieve deleted/formatted/lost photos, music, videos, documents, emails, etc. from both computer and removable drives and it provides Normal scan and deep scan modes. I really like it. Where I found it:
    http://www.flash-video-soft.com/data-recovery/

    Cons

    The files it found were random and folders limited to the search criteria. No flexibility. It did not find any of the files I was looking for. It just found tmp files and random crap nobody would care about.

    Summary

    Sloooww. sorry, but spam, toolbars, extra gaming software, and other random crap installing without asking me first is unacceptable and is then to me considered spam-ware.

    "Recovered deleted files by mistake"

    May 30, 2014   |   By haoyanan727

    Version: Wise Data Recovery 3.44.186

    Pros

    To choose a specific disk to scan, the deleted files could be searched out, and the results shown as 3 colors, yellow,green,red. The possibility of the deleted files can be recovered or not will depend on the color,surely the red means can't be recovered at all.

    Cons

    didn't find yet.

    Summary

    I did regret to delete some useful files on my Drive D,then download and run Wise Disk Cleaner, it recovered my files.So lucky!
