Thus it is strongly recommended you read the entire article carefully and follow steps to test recovery software.
Before we start you should make sure:
- The drive that loses data can be seen in Windows Disk Management (Right-click “This Computer” and choose “Manage” àClick “Disk Management”), otherwise data recovery software won’t be able to recognize the disk.
- There not severe hardware issues on the drive, such as bad sectors, power supply issue, etc. Bad sectors slow down or even stop scanning process. You can use PartitionGuru to verify bad sectors.
- Lost files are not overwritten. No new data has been written to the drive that contains lost files and no further operations have been done to the disk. If that happens, you’ll lose chance to get back all lost data.

Step 1: Decide which recovery mode to use.
There are four recover modes on the main interface of Eassos Recovery and each can fix a series of similar data loss issues. You can easily choose one based on how your files get lost, as there is concise description on each recovery feature.

Eassos Recovery can preview various files including pictures, photos, documents (e.g. Word, Excel, PPT, Text, etc.), video and audios files. Other files
The “Save Scan Status” button is used to save status of current scanning result into a .dgrp file with which you can resume current status next time instead of scanning from beginning.
