Recovering Lost and Corrupted Files without the Recovery Wizard

The Recovery Wizard usually opens automatically on each launch of HDD Mechanic. Uncheck the corresponding checkbox if you don't want the Recovery Wizard to launch every time you start the program.

Alternatively, you can change the option in Preferences. If you need full manual control over the recovery process, deselect the checkbox and close the Recovery Wizard.

For hard drives, you can opt to recover a single partition or the entire physical drive. If you can access all other partitions on the drive with no problem, and if the partition is available in the list of the drives available for scan, choose that partition.

In case of a serious data corruption and if the system cannot recognize partitions or does not show them as drive letters, HDD Mechanic will scan the entire hard drive to locate recoverable NTFS and FAT partitions. After locating the partitions, the product will automatically scan them for lost files.

This operation will take a while depending on the size of the drive and the number of files it contains. On the screenshot below, the scanner runs on a single physical drive with system folders.

Click Next to start the disk scan.

Select a partition and click Next, then specify the type of the file system and click Next too.

The scan will start immediately.

After the scan is complete, click Finish. You will get all the recoverable files shown with an Explorer-like user-friendly interface. HDD Mechanic supports all the usual refinements of Windows Explorer, such as file search, tree and folder view, back and forward navigation, as well as file details. You can preview files in a variety of formats before recovering them.

Select files and folders you want to recover and click "Recover" to start the Export Wizard. Here you need to select the location to save the recovered files. After the exporting process is complete, click on the displayed link to view your files. Then click Finish.

Testimonials

"Your software really is top notch. It found files that our local computer geeks store could not find after three days of running every files search program they had."

Greg Kemper,

Yellowpine, PE, USA

"Are there any upgrades planned in the near future? This has always been the best recovery program around. Recently I tried a couple of demo programs and they recovered many more erased pictures. One was called Digital Photo Recovery by The Undelete Co. I would like to stay with your software. Thanks. "

Mike,

Windsor, England
