How to Recover Files with Recovery Wizard

The Recovery Mechanic Wizard will show up automatically when you start Recovery Mechanic.

You can turn the Wizard off by clearing the checkbox on the first page of the Wizard.

Selecting the place to scan and searching for lost data

On the second step, you will be able to select either a hard drive or a folder to scan.

The "Add Folder" button can be used for adding more folders to the "Folders to search" list. The "Mount Image" button adds the previously created image.

Search by Mask

If you want to recover all files, simply click Next. If, however, you need to recover some specific files, you can specify the file mask by using parts of file names, extensions, and masks such as “*”. Recovery Mechanic will start searching for deleted files of the specified type.

Summary Information

The following step will display the final confirmation screen before is starts scanning the disk. If you want to limit your search to files of a certain size or want to only see files created or modified during a specific period of time, use the "Options" button and specify the "File size" and the "Date modified" as well as other fields as needed.

When you're done, click Next to start the scan.

Recovery Mechanic will display real-time progress information during the search. Please be patient and protect your PC from shutting down. Canceling the search prematurely will not cause any damage, but you’ll have to start the search over next time.

Finalizing the Scan

After Recovery Mechanic is finished scanning your disks, you can browse the discovered lost files by simply clicking Finish

How to Save Recoverable Files

On the next step, you can select files and folders you need to recover.

Most file types including pictures, videos, documents, email messages and music can be instantly previewed or played back by Recovery Mechanic before the recovery.

Select files and/or folders to recover, and click the Recover button. This will launch the Export Wizard. You will be asked to type the destination location where the files you recover will be saved. On the last step of the Recovery Wizard, you'll see a confirmation window with an underlined link. Click the link to open a folder that contains files and folders that have been recovered.

Testimonials

"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. "

"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."
