Data is precious. In fact, it is the world’s most valuable resource. If your phone or laptop is stolen, what would hurt you the most? Loss of your phone or your data? I’m sure you’ll miss your photos, videos, and messages more than your phone. You can buy a new phone, but you can not get your data back once it’s gone!
Well, you can not do much if you lose your device and the data wasn’t backed up. But, sometimes we have the device with us and lose the data. There could be various reasons for it. Accidentally deleting a file or a folder, corruption of files due to some virus, formatting a hard drive without backing up the data and much more. However, in such cases, you can recover the data with a data recovery software.
You can find a lot of data recovery software available in the market. Some are free while some are not. However, if you’ll search on Google about the data recovery software, you’ll find “EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard” on top. Hence, we decided to review it. Let’s see if it’s worth the top position.
Tip: The desktop software should be installed carefully. Because the risk of installing a desktop application is very high as compared to using a web application. By installing a wrong software, you can compromise your data, network, and even account passwords.
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard has 3 different editions – Free, Pro and Pro + WinPE. Also, it is available for both – Windows and Mac. For this review, I used the free edition on Windows. In the pro version, there’s no limit on the amount of data that one can recover, whereas, in the free edition, only up to 2GB data can be recovered. This is the only key difference between free and pro version. In pro version, you also get technical support, which is missing in the free version.
The software also has preview mode which allows you to preview the file before recovery. You can filter the list of deleted files by file type. Sorting by name, size, date, and type is also available. You can even search files and folders. Also, the design of the software is very minimalistic and clean.
In terms of capabilities, it can recover deleted files, formatted drives, lost partitions, corrupted files or even corrupted external drives. However, the software doesn’t scan multiple partitions or a full hard drive in one go. You have to specify a location to begin the scan. It could be a partition or a folder.

Performance and Results
During the test, I was able to recover all the files I deleted for this test. However, I can not guarantee the same results every time as this was a very small test and only recently deleted files were recovered.
The time it took was less in comparison to the other data recovery tools available in the market. One more thing I liked about the software is that you can save the scan session and recover files later on. However, the software is made up specifically for data recovery. Some more advanced options are missing, such as cloning.
