Editors' Review

Wondershare Data Recovery is a versatile tool to help you recover files that were accidentally deleted or lost in some other way. It provides a ton of options for how to recover files and what types to search for, so you can streamline the process and get the results you're looking for quickly.

Pros

Customizable experience: Depending on the amount of experience you have using this type of program, you may want to use the Wizard or switch to Manual Recovery mode. You can also select the type or types of files you'd like to search for, the location you'd like to search, and whether or not you'd like to enable the Deep Scan feature of the program. This particular option is better for recovering formatted files, but it also takes longer to complete.

Preview during scan: You don't have to wait until the program has finished running to see what it's found. In fact, you can begin previewing files almost immediately, as they show up in a list as soon as the program locates them.

Cons

Help location: The Help feature that comes with this program is hidden in a drop-down menu that's accessible only through a tiny icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Fortunately, the program's interface presents everything in such a clear and streamlined way that you're not likely to need the Help document much.

Bottom Line

Wondershare Data Recovery works well, and it's a good option for users of all experience levels. The trial version is full-featured, and the only limitation is that you can't recover more than 100MB of files. After that point, you'll have to purchase a full license for $39.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Data Recovery 4.5.
