Losing valuable data every now and then has become a routine scenario for millions of people across the world. Sometimes you switch between devices and hard disks, sometimes your system catches a virus and corrupts your storage, sometimes your HDD or SSD crashes, sometimes you accidentally delete important files and sometimes you need to retrieve back files which you permanently deleted from the Recycle bin as well.
I’m pretty sure that either of these things must have happened to you. I myself have been a victim of an SSD crash and ended up losing about 60% of my important files and media. So naturally, I had to look for various ways to recover my lost data. That is when I came across this cool data recovery software called “Bitwar”.
I used Bitwar and was impressed with its ease and simplicity of use. Within just 20 minutes of setup, I had recovered almost 95% of my lost SSD data and I was relieved. Hence I decided to write a quick review of Bitwar Data Recovery Software and how it works so that other data loss victims like me can benefit from it.

Let’s go with data recovery for PC!
After this, you will need to register your account. You can register using your email ID or through your social media accounts (ie; Facebook, Twitter or Google+).
Once you have registered, you will get access to the Bitwar data recovery tools. You will also be given tips and instructions on operating the software as shown below.
How to recover deleted files using Bitwar?
Once your setup and registration are complete, the main window of the software will show all the available drives and disks partitions available on your device.
You can either click on “Deep Scan” to find lost partitions to recover or you can choose one of the available drives or partitions and hit “Next”. (Shown below)
Now you will be given 3 scanning options to choose from:
- Quick Scan
To recover files you permanently deleted accidentally by using “Shift + Delete” that are not available in the Recycle bin.
- Deep Scan
You can use this option in case the “Quick Scan” option did not fetch you your desired files.
Please note: Deep scanning will take longer time than Quick scan, as it will search every sector of your hard drive to find all existing files. So please be patient!
- Formatted Recovery
This is the best option for retrieving deleted formatted files and partitions.
Once you’ve chosen your scan mode, hit “Next”.
Now finally, you will have to select the type(s) of files you wish the software to recover. This is important as it will narrow down the search requirements by scanning only your selected file type(s). Thus making the scanning process quicker and saving you valuable time.
After selecting your file type(s), hit “Scan”.
Now the server will start scanning and retrieving all the possible data. The scanning may take some time depending upon the number of files recovered and your drive size. Wait till the scan is completed.
Once the scan is complete, go through the list and select the files you wish to recover. After that, hit “Recover” and the server will start recovering your selected files.
