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.
