Step-by-Step Tutorial

Restoring Files with Recovery Wizard

The Recovery Wizard will be displayed automatically when you start NTFS Mechanic for the first time. Click Next to continue.

To disable opening the wizard on startup, follow to the Menu-View-Preferences-General tab and uncheck the wizard startup checkbox.

Selecting the Disk and Searching for Lost data

On the drive selection screen, you can select either a logical partition or physical drive to scan. Selecting Physical drive may cause slower and longer scan with NFTS partition detection.

In general, it is recommended to select a partition if you can still access it as a disk letter; otherwise, you have no other choice but to scan the physical drive, which takes longer.

The next step will display a progress bar with the number of folders and files discovered. When recovering large volumes, you may need to leave the PC and take a rest, as it might take considerable time. In this case, make sure nothing will interrupt the scan.

After the scan is complete, click Finish to get all the restorable files in the Explorer-like view. You can also cancel the scan before it ends, in which case you’ll be able to browse files and folders that are already found.

The interface of NTFS Mechanic supports all the usual refinements of Windows Explorer, namely the file search, tree and folder view, back, forward, and files details.

How to Save Files

Most file formats can be previewed with NTFS Mechanic.

The preview is available in full and free versions of the product to let you check the files before paying for the full product.

Select files or folders to recover and click Recover. The Export Wizard will start. You will need to select the destination folder to export the files.

Make sure you are not trying to export the files to the same logical drive!

When the Wizard is complete, a confirmation window with an underlined link will be displayed. Click the link to open a folder containing the recovered 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,
