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.

"Don't use unless you have deleted data"

October 21, 2014  |  By WRS2014

 |  Version: Wise Data Recovery 3.44.186

Pros

This software might work if you have deleted data from your drive or something like that.

Cons

It installed other programs on my machine
It didn't work because I had a physical problem with my hard drive
It doesn't tell you only to use it for deleted data

Summary

This program did not work for me, I had to learn the hard way and after hours of wasted time I had to send my drive off to a professional company. Actually that company helped me understand what this software did not warm me of, is that software won't recover a physical problem with a hard drive. If you run into this problem too the companies name is SERT Data Recovery www.sertdatarecovery.com they actually recovered all my data for me.

"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.

 |  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

Summary
