Data Rescue finds deleted, damaged, or lost files and folders. Data Rescue works on hard drives that are: crashed, corrupted, erased, non-mounting, or reformatted.

Data Rescue is SSD and RAID compatible. The software has four different customizable data recovery options or easy one-click scanning.

Try our free demo version of Data Rescue for a fully functional scan of your hard drive. The demo shows what files are recoverable before purchase.

The Quick Scan is the fastest method to detect existing directory structures even if your hard drive does not mount. This scan finds files with their original folder hierarchies and file names. It is recommended to try this scan method first if your volume is detected on the hard drive.

A Quick Scan can only be used on a volume. If you have selected the hard drive to be scanned, the Quick Scan will attempt to search for the first available volume on the hard drive, then rebuild the directory structure for that volume.

The Quick Scan typically takes a few minutes to complete, but may take up to a few hours to retrieve the results in more severe cases. Bad blocks on the hard drive may slow down the scan process, but will immediately speed up once it has overcome those bad blocks.

Quick Scan should also be chosen if the startup disk fails to boot into Windows , or when an external drive fails to mount. Due to Quick Scan’s overall speed, it should be tried first in most cases.

Deleted Files Scan looks through the free space of a volume for files based on your Windows file patterns. By scanning only the free space it allows the Deleted Files Scan to specifically detect any files that were deleted.

Deleted Files Scan should be used when your drive is working properly but files were deleted by the operating system, another program, or by you via the Trash

The Deleted Files Scan usually takes up to three minutes per gigabyte of free space available on the volume. This makes the Deleted Files Scan faster than a Deep Scan since it is not scanning any known used space on the volume.

Once files are deleted through the Windows operating system, there is no more reference to their original directory structure, file name, or date created/modified. Data Rescue will not be able to detect the original information of that file in the directory structure. Instead, Data Rescue will rebuild any files that it detects based on its file patterns. The results of the Deleted Files Scan will be provided with generic filenames and organized by category in the Reconstructed Files folder.

Deleted Files Scan can utilize FileIQ for finding additional files.

The Deep Scan is a comprehensive data recovery scan that provides the most results possible.

The Deep Scan is a two part scan method. It detects existing directory structures on your PC , and scans the whole hard drive for any file patterns to rebuild the raw data of any recognized files.

The first part of Deep Scan can detect multiple directory structures while scanning the hard drive with more than one volume. This will provide you with results from each found volume, with their original directory structures and file names.

The second part of the Deep Scan searches the entire hard drive for any files based on file patterns. Data Rescue detects over 150 major file types based on the files’ raw data (Deep Scan can utilize FileIQ for finding additional files).

These found files will not have their original directory structure or filenames since Data Rescue is rebuilding the files based on their file design. Instead, these results will be provided with generic filenames and organized by category in the Reconstructed Files folder.

The Deep Scan usually takes up to three minutes per gigabyte. With large capacity hard drives, it may require several hours to complete a scan. Physical issues such as bad blocks on the hard drive may slow down the scan process even longer, but the scan will immediately speed up once it has overcome the bad blocks.
