Review: Easeus Data Recovery Wizard Professional

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

I had the chance to review Easus’ Data Recovery Wizard Professional doing exactly what it says it does. The software covers various hard drive file system types, allowing for maximum compatibility with your system, including Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista.

The program is very light weight in just under 6mb zipped, with a collection of features built into the program. The recovery wizard can retrieve just about any file type on your system, and even has a built in thumbnail viewer for images.

Functionality:
The application was very responsive in all ways when scanning and displaying results without any hang-ups or crashes. The program is very practical with multiple hard drives on one system, allowing a full system scan without re-arranging your hardware.

Navigation and recovery is easy with an easy to read interface. The refresh hard drive feature needs correcting when changing the name of your hard drive, and trying to refresh the name of it.

Interface:
The interface isn’t exactly the greatest looking interface I have ever seen, and could use an upgrade, including the layout which would make the programs appearance enjoyable to use. The program just feels outdated when looking at the use of the text and colours.

The good:
The program is able to quickly scan your hard drives bringing back recovered results found on your hard drive, with a display of name, size, file type, and modified date helping users sort out their data. The wizard found an uncountable number of files from my hard drive, mostly files that were removed from the recycle bin.

A big list of features with options helps making scanning and recovery a breeze. Very lightweight program that can be carried around to support clients on the go.

The bad:
The wizard was unable to recover all files from a quick formatted partition that I tested it on, but able to recover bits of files. I found a problem with the image viewing part of the application which returned errors.

The price of the software is enough to deter users from purchasing the program, at $89.95 for the professional edition, and $69.95 for the standard. At times the data preview also showed different contents that differ from the file name, like during my preview of an rtf file showing me PHP code I had previously written.

Overall:
When it comes down to it, the program gets the job done. The application is feature rich, which would help anybody understand how to use and recover, ranging from beginners to experts.

The application has great hardware support for its size, but faces a number of issues it needs to correct, one of which is the price. With a number of free alternatives out there, it is easy to pass this offer up.

Data Recovery And Why It Is Always Best Left To The Experts

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

In recent times with the “Credit Crunch” beginning to bite a lot of people may well be tempted to try to repair or recover their data from a failed hard disk drive or memory stick.

Alternatively they try to use recovery software, which is easily available on the net, can be paid for and downloaded online.

In most cases this software will be a data recovery programmer for a hard disk drive that has suffered from some form of logical table corruption and will not assist with

  1. Mechanically failed devices
  2. Degraded hard Disk Drives
  3. Devices with electronic failures

This software will of course not be able to help and if the drive is degraded or suffering from a mechanical failure attempting to run this software will in most cases cause further damage to hard drives, potentially making the disk unrecoverable.

The software itself is very often very reasonable priced – usually under $100 but is only good for one purpose to recover either deleted or logically failed drives, so if you are not sure what you are doing trying to do a self recovery can in the long run cost a lot more.

There are of course a lot of IT experts around of course and you may even have some in your own business, but do they really know what they are doing when it comes to the serious issue of data recovery? You would think that your onsite IT support would be data aware bit this is quite often simply not the case.

In a typical case a drive was initially presented for diagnosis and duly diagnosed with a blown PCB - the drive seemed completely dead and would not spin at all.

As an additional test a new PCB was placed on the board so that the response of the heads could be tested. The result of this test was that the heads appeared to have been “blown” by a power surge through the drive.

Upon further discussion, with the client, it transpired that the IT dept had decided to remove the HDD from the laptop and as it was an IDE device mount it as an external storage device by using an IDE connector. Unfortunately they plugged the HDD to the connector “upside down” meaning that crucially the drive received a huge power spike through it when the connector was hooked up to a PC.

It may well have been in this particular scenario that the actual problem could have been no more a few bad sectors on the disk, however due to a certain level of incompetence within this department what originally was more than likely a simple job for a data professional turned into a much more costly full drive rebuild.

Many businesses need to get their data back as quickly as possibly so it is quite frustrating to have additional costs and additional downtime whilst you are waiting for data to be recovered

Sadly this is not an isolated case and data recovery companies the world over will have a whole collection of stories where simple recoveries were turned into data disasters by the DIY and have a go brigade

So the moral of this is that whilst many people will look for a quick and cheap fix for their data recovery problems, they really are best leaving it to the experts.
