Documents and Pictures

Start Recovering Files:
Begin recovery of your hard drive.

View Previous Scan Results:
If you have a completed scan, this will bring you to the scan results where you can locate files for recovery. Make sure you have the original drive that was being scanned connected to your computer.

Clone:
Create a clone if your hard drive appears to be having hardware problems or if the Quick and Deep scan are stating an excessive amount of time to scan.

Create a Recovery Drive:
Create a bootable disk to safely recover files from your main drive (also known as your startup disk).

Scan Source:
Whether you accidentally deleted files from your startup drive or external storage (external hard drives, USB flash drives, or SD cards) select the device you need to recover from.

Quick Scan:
Select this scan type if your operating system fails to boot or your external drive fails to mount.

Deep Scan:
Select this scan type if you have accidentally emptied the trash of needed files or accidentally reformatted a drive.

Preview:
Data Rescue allows you to preview some file types before recovering the files. This will help determine whether the files can be recovered properly before purchasing the software to ensure the customer is satisfied.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I recover files that I accidentally deleted, or from a reformatted hard drive?

Yes, recovery is possible in these cases however typically the original filenames and folder structure will not be recoverable. This data, as well as data lost from reformatting can be found in the ‘Reconstructed Files’ folder in the results of a Deep Scan where it will be organized by file type.

What is a Recovery Drive?

A Recovery Drive is a special startup drive that can be created through the Data Rescue software on your own device. This will allow you to recover from a non-booting internal drive, or a boot drive on macOS 10.13

What is a Clone?

The purpose of the Data Rescue cloning function is to copy the raw data of a drive or volume to another drive or volume, so that the copy may be scanned and recovered from, reducing the wear-and-tear on the original hard drive

Why doesn’t my drive or volume show up?

If you have attached a drive with a damaged volume since you started Data Rescue, Data Rescue may not automatically notice it. Try the File > Refresh Drives List menu item. It could be possible that your drive is malfunctioning to the point where your computer is not able to talk to it at all, in which case even the device name will not appear. In this case, no software will be able to scan your device, and you will need the drive evaluated by a data recovery service provider like The Data Rescue Center.

What is the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we do not offer any refunds for our products. There are never any guarantees with data recovery, which is why we offer the demo version of the software. This will allow you to perform a full scan, visualize the scan results, and preview every single file. If the demo version does not allow you to open and preview the contents of your file, and only displays the file names, the full version will not work either. The Terms of Sale must be agreed to before purchasing.
