Now that’s where the confusion begins as to which software or tool you should go for. I have been in that situation, so I know how it feels! So to ease your concern, let me brief you about a cool and reliable data recovery software that I have personally used quite a few times for recovering my lost data. This tool is called EaseUS data recovery wizard.

Let me give you a quick review of how EaseUS performs on the basis of some basic recovery tests I executed. Here is a list of demo tests I performed to test EaseUS:
- Basic deleted file recovery testing on a 518 GB, NTFS-formatted partition with used space of about 379 GB
- Recovery of a 10GB test partition
Here is a quick list of the performance and speed of EaseUS according to my test analysis.
- Quick scan (500 GB Partition): 2 seconds
- Deep scan (500 GB Partition): 1 hour, 45 minutes
- Word doc recovery: 100%
- Video file recovery: 100%
- Image file recovery: 100%
- Deleted partition recovery: 100%
The quick scan seems to only check if there’s any recently deleted content it can recover which seemingly is not a pleasant thing since quick scans most of the other data recovery software tools recover the entire directory of lost and deleted files.
Apart from these, there are some features that aren’t available in any of the EaseUS software packages. You cannot add new recoverable file types or scan by file types. The software is unable to recover lost or deleted data from optical storage like CDs and DVDs.
When it comes to scanning, EaseUS could only scan partitions, not your full hard drive. Furthermore, the tool cannot recover optical storage.

You can restore up to 500MB as a default setting with the free version of the software or up to 2GB if you click the share button in the wizard!
The quick scan is fast and the deep scan performed pretty well while recovering all the files I was looking for. It is flexible and can recover data from HDDs, SSDs, RAID storage, servers and even optical drives.
The overall performance of the software is satisfactory and the overall test results were also pretty decent. It will work well if you want a data recovery software for personal use. However, it does still have some areas to improve upon.
