Frequently Asked Questions

How does this recovery work?

We recommend all users to first download our demo of Data Rescue and run a scan on the problem drive. The demo will allow the user to preview the contents of the files found before making a purchase if the files are not previewable within the demo. The users will have to decide if they want to purchase the software. Note: All sales are final!
If you are happy with the results, you will select the files that you want and click on "Recover...". You will log into the software once a purchase is made and select the destination drive. Note that the destination drive cannot be the same as your source drive.

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.

Can I recover a folder with a 1 file recovery license?

A one-file recovery can only recover a single file. Meaning you can recover a single document, picture, excel sheet, etc.
Recovering a folder means you would be selecting every single file within the selected folder. If you have over 100 files selected a 1 drive recovery license would be recommended.

Can find my activation code?

If you have already made a purchase of Data Rescue 6 you will only need to enter your email into the main login window. Under where it states "Please enter the email address you used when purchasing Data Rescue". Once you enter your email you will be sent a verification code that allows you to use your software recovery license.
Guide on installing and activating Data Rescue 6

What is the refund policy?

We have a strict no-refund policy as stated in our Terms of Sale. This is why our demo is recommended before purchasing. The demo will allow you to preview the contents of the files found to ensure that they are not damaged and are in a complete state.

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.
