A data recovery tool that anyone can use

Losing the data that you’ve collected over the years is a very sad experience. However, don’t lose hope because there are many software nowadays that have been developed in order to recover the data that you have lost. One such software is the Wondershare Data Recovery developed by Wondershare. Using this software, you won’t have to cry about any data loss anymore. At least, that’s what it’s trying to sell, but does its performance live up to the hype that it has built up?

Promising Start

When you first get your hands on this product it seems like a very promising tool. The download and installation process is quick and easy. The download file is quite small for such a powerful program so it didn’t take a long time. The installation was equally effortless. There were no additional downloads or options required to install the program. In just a few minutes, the program will be up and running.

Upon first launching the program, you’ll be taken to the home screen. The design of the program is extremely professional and stylish. It has a white background color with gray and blue accents. On the home screen, you can choose the file types that you want to recover.  A great thing about this software is that it can recover a lot of file types. You can recover photos, audio, videos, emails, documents, and more. Once you’ve selected the file types that need to be recovered, you can choose the location that you want to scan. The scan will then start and if it founds any relevant data, it will display it. The user will just need to click recover in order to get the data back.

Problematic End

The process of the recovering data may seem simple and easy, and it is, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. The most problematic thing about this program is the fact that it doesn’t seem to function all that well. It has a hard time finding relevant data. In my experience, I usually had to use Deep Scan to find the files I need. Deep Scan is a more comprehensive scan, but it’s a very slow process. That said, it is successful in finding files so that’s a point in Wondershare Data Recovery’s favor.

Another problem some users encounter is that it corrupts the data it recovers. Although this doesn’t happen to everyone, it is a consideration worth taking. In relation to this, if the data you’re trying to recover was already corrupted then Wondershare can’t really do anything about it. This fact kind of defeats the purpose of the program, but it would be unfair to crucify it just for that since it’s not the only thing this program is useful for.

Mixed Bag

There’s a lot of good in this program, but there are also a lot of bad. There’s no need to rush into purchasing this program, and it would be wise to look into alternatives further before buying it. It may be a risk worth taking if you’re really in a pinch.
