Data Recovery Wizard 3.3.4 – Step-By-Step File Recovery Guide

Data Recovery Wizard is very easy to install and use. That’s because the program offers a wizard-driven interface, letting even beginners restore photos in a blink of an eye.

The following guide will show you it’s true. Let’s get started!

Download Data Recovery Wizard from EASEUS website. The file you are downloading is named “drwdemo.zip”. The download should be fast because the installer is zipped and weighs only 4.59 Mb.

Now double click on the downloaded file to launch installation. You’ll see a ‘Welcome’ dialog that asks if you would like to continue. Click “Next”.

The easiest way to do the next few windows is to use default installation settings. So, click “Next” in all windows of the installer. When you see the final dialog, check “I would like to create a desktop icon”, “I would like to launch Data Recovery Wizard” and click “Finish”.

That’s all! The program is installed and ready for use. Its icon is on the desktop.

Now, let’s recover files.

Click on the desktop icon “EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard” and you’ll see the window below.

As you see, the program gives you several ways to recover files depending on the problem that made them disappear. Let’s assume we lost an image file and that happened because of a foolish mistake – we deleted it to Recycle Bin and then emptied it. The best way then is to click a large button named “DeletedRecovery”. Come on, let’s do it!

And you see this lovely window above. Now you can see all storage media available on the computer. In our case, these are 4 partitions named “C:”, “D:”, “E:”, “F:”. Because the deleted file was on partition “C:”, we click to select it. It’s also possible to search for the file in the specific folder of this partition (see: “Search Specified Folder” button on top), that’s, of course, if you remember the one where the file was kept. Now click “Next” and off we go!

Scanning goes fast. In fact, it’s 7%-11% faster than in any other data recovery software. When the scan is done, you see the dialog below.

The found files are displayed as a list. If needed, you can switch to the Thumbnail View mode and they’ll be displayed as thumbnails. For each file you can see its name, size, file type, modification time, creation time, last access date, attribute and state. And, of course, what you can see is what you may actually get if you are a registered user. Registration lets you unlock the ability to recover files and save them to the location of your choice.

As you can see, file recovery using Data Recovery Wizard is VERY easy and doesn’t require any special skills or technical knowledge. Should you stumble upon some difficulty, you can resort to the Help system, which can be accessed by clicking “Help” on top of the interface. We used a simple situation as an example here. But with the same simplicity you could recover files even in more severe situations, for example, when the partition was formatted.

Now you can do these things:

1. Download Data Recovery Wizard to try free data recovery on your own.

2. Buy Data Recovery Wizard online to gain the ability to recover files.

3. What our customers say

Data Recovery Wizard has helped many users recover their files. Here’s what they say:

“Hi! I just like to say thank you very much for the fantastic software. Three of my hard disk had failed in succession due to faulty hardware. Each had failed for different reasons. As you can imagine I was devastated. I also had formatted one by accident and thought the data was gone for good. Yet you software managed to fix all three disks. Thank you again and I have already recommended your software to my colleague. Many thanks!” says Michael Ordoukhani.

“I would like to thank you guys for creating such an awesome piece of software. It literally recovered 7 years of lost data. I am a programmer (software engineer) and am self employed. I mistakenly RAID 0 two of my drives which had 7 years worth of data on it. I tried 2 other software packages before I got to yours and yours was the ONLY one able to recover ALL my data. Thank you,” says Sam.

RAID Data Recovery Guide and Tips

If your RAID drive has failed, you need to choose a good method to recover data from the drive. Typically RAID configurations are made in a way to maintain a balance between capacity and performance of the device. Therefore, the RAID drives require the extra disk to maintain the parity info. Given below are some tips that can help you recover data from the drive and re-configure the RAID.

1. Analyze the Cituation

First of all, you need to analyze the situation and examine the configurations of the RAID. In this process, make sure you try to find out which part of your data is inaccessible. Check the RAID card as well. Also, you can use Drive Monitor to check the problematic disks in the RAID.

2. Go through the Factory Manual

In order to recover data from a faulty RAID drive, make sure you read the factory manual as well. This will help you get a better idea of the technical aspects of the card and the information you need for the card-configuration.

3. Check the Backup

Find out if you can access the backup of the files you have lost. If no backup is available, you might want to contact a RAID data recovery service. In the meantime, you don’t want to write more data on the drive.

4. Check the Raid Card and the Motherboard

At times, the RAID drives are fine and the problem is somewhere else. For instance, the problem may be with the RAID card or the motherboard. For verification, you can send the devices to the manufacturers for replacement. On the other hand, if the RAID card can detect the drivers, chances are that the RAID configuration is fine.

5. Don’t Try a Rebuilding Process

If the RAID won’t read the drivers, you may consider the rebuilding process. However, chances are that the attempt won’t be fruitful. It’s better to avoid making any configuration attempt that may cause further damage. Make sure you don’t restore the backup on the same disk.

6. Don’t Mess with the Raid Configuration

It’s not a good idea to guess the RAID that involves the offset, stripe, parity or rotation configurations. If you mess up something, you may find it even more difficult to recover your data.

7. Contact an Expert

Although you can use a good data recovery app to get your data back, it’s not recommended for a number of reasons. By contacting experts, you can rest assured that your data is not lost or left out.

If you have RAID drivers, make sure you monitor the drives on a regular basis. With data maintenance, you can keep track of how each drive works and if any one of them is faulty. Also, it’s a must to create a backup of your files to be on the safe side.

So, if you follow the tips given Above, you can ensure safe data recovery. In case of a doubt, it’s always a great idea to get in touch with a professional. They will help you recover your data in a few days.
