EasyRecovery General Information
Product Overview
EasyRecovery™ is a safe and affordable do-it-yourself data recovery solution that is designed to recover lost and deleted files from all types of media such as hard drives, optical drives, flash media drives, and multi-media or memory devices.
EasyRecovery™ may recover files whether they have been deleted from the command line, from within an application, the file system, or removed from the recycle bin.
In addition EasyRecovery™ may recover formatted or lost drives, drives with severe logical file system damage, and can even reconstruct lost RAIDs!
EasyRecovery™ will scan the drive and bring up list of files which can be saved from the scanned drive.
To preserve the drive with the lost or deleted files, all recovered files must be saved to another storage device or another drive letter in the system. EasyRecovery™ is a non-destructive read-only application and will not write or make changes to the drive it is recovering from.
E-mail Recovery module for recovering deleted e-mails.
