Systweak Advanced Disk Recovery Review
Advanced Disk Recovery goes through a few steps in undeleting files and directories and these are under the Welcome, Scanning, Scan Results, Recover and Finish tabs on the user interface.
The Welcome tab allows you to choose where to scan for deleted content like the drive or folder in a drive. You also choose either a quick scan recommended for locating recently deleted files or a deep scan which takes longer as it performs a sector-by-sector search to locate file traces obscured by more recent files saved on the same sector. A deep scan can result in 13 times more files than in a quick scan. You then realize all these files could be lying on your drive even after deleting them but this only shows the efficacy of the software. The advanced filtering facility allows you to speed up scan results when you specify exact files in terms of name, file type, range of dates when it deleted, and files size to narrow down the search.
Once you get scan results under the appropriate tab, you can view the recoverable files organized in their respective folder structure where they were deleted. You also have the option to view them in image thumbnails for visual confirmation prior to restoring them. You can specify which files or folders to undelete, or just recover everything. You will then be prompted for the new file destination.
The process seems involved but we are amazed not only at the ease but also its efficacy. Now you know that any file deleted, even when emptied form the recycle bin, can be recovered. That’s because a file deleted still leaves traces on the HDD sector it used to occupy. Based on this, Systweak Advanced Disk Recovery offers a most reliable solution to getting your deleted files back in simple steps.
What makes the Systweak Advanced Disk Recovery software different from the others is that it does not only allow you to recover files in your computer—file recovery is also possible in CDs, DVDs and external devices such as flash drives. It is possible to recover any files such as Office documents, media files, text documents and full applications such as games. This makes the software a versatile tool for all your recovery needs. Unlike other software that provides specific tools for specific devices, the Systweak Advanced Disk Recovery is an all-in-one tool that you can use for any computer storage device. You only need to plug the external storage device into the computer, launch the application and follow the on-screen instructions that will help you recover your files.
Provided that the location of the deleted file has not been overwritten with a new file, you can be sure that the Systweak Advanced Disk Recovery software will be able to recover them. A number of users found that the scan results of the software are all genuine and that they can easily be recovered. Although you should not expect the software to be able to scan files that have been deleted for more than a year, it is not virtually impossible. You may be surprised to find recoverable files that you may have already forgotten about.
Another good thing about the software is that its website offers email support for those who need help in using the software. They also provide an active phone number that you can call in case you need any assistance.
