6 Questions to Ask when Choosing Data Recovery Software

1. Will 100% Data Get Recovered?

Undoubtedly, almost all the users hope that the lost data can be 100% restored in data recovery. Thus, when selecting software, they’ll constantly ask the software producers whether their software is able to succeed to recover all the lost data. To be honest, no software can promise and realize it. For instance, you delete files accidentally. And you don’t try data recovery at once. Hence, some deleted files may have been overwritten with new files. In this case, even the most remarkable, professional and experienced software cannot restore overwritten data.

2. How Long Will Data Recovery Take?

Besides, some users may have ever encountered the case that data recovery tool gets stuck or takes a pretty long time. Therefore, many users pay much attention to the time required in recovery. Yet, in fact, the time depends on multiple factors, including your machine’s condition, drive storage capacity, the amount of data to be recovered and data recovery principles and methods, etc. So, you’d better not choose recovery software on basis of speed.

3. Is Software Easy to Operate?

Computer newbies or novices are reluctant to utilize the data recovery software which is difficult to operate. For instance, if the software is designed without the detailed wizards or instructions or it has no clear and understandable interfaces, it won’t be preferred. Of course, different software has different interface designs. In prior to purchasing such software, you have to search and check some of its interface screenshots.

4. Can Software Recover Data Lost in Physical Damage?

As we all know, data can be lost due to two kinds of causes – logical failures and physical damage. Thereby, before data recovery, you have to figure out the actual causes. Many users will wonder if it is right to employ data recovery software to recover the data lost due to device physical damage. As a matter of fact, such an idea is totally wrong. Not only will software be unable to realize it, but also it will surely lead to further damage to the device and more serious data losses.

5. Is It Right to Resort to Free Data Recovery Software?

Perhaps you have noticed that much data recovery software is free of charge. In consideration of budget, many users wish to choose free software. But, in honesty, it is a risk. Above all, you have to accept a fact. That is, free software must have a reason for free charge, maybe due to its limited capability or unreliability, etc. To be specific, it may be unable to give you accurate results after scanning the device, thus it cannot offer you the best recovery results.

6. Does Expensive Data Recovery Software Definitely Worth High Price?

On basis of the above question, few users may disagree and put forward another question – does all expensive data recovery software can do what they advertise and is it worthy of high price? Of course, no software producer can promise you that. But, in contrast with the free software, if you really attach great importance to the lost data, you must be willing to pay just for more chances of successful data recovery.
