Windows Data Recovery tool performs deep and thorough scan on the corrupt
and damaged hard drive or partition to locate and retrieve the lost
and inaccessible data. Scanning is performed using any of three
Scan Modes : Quick, Extensive, and File Trace which
differentiates from each other; the type of corruption it handles.
Quick Scan Mode is used to recover recently deleted files, deleted partition, or corrupted partitions whereas Extensive Scan mode helps to recover files that were deleted long ago. It works well to recover data in cases, such as where OS is being reloaded after formatting hard drive, partitions are formatted, and the hard drive damage is immoderate.
File Trace mode should be used when Quick Scan and Extensive Scan modes get failed to recover the lost data.
When the complete scanning is over, Windows Recovery displays the found data in a Windows explorer like structure. The found data can be analyzed for accuracy and then saved to the preferred location of your hard drive. With an advance feature of search files, user can easily locate and search particular file amongst several recovered files and folders.
