File Recovery with MiniTool Power Data Recovery

MiniTool Power Data Recovery is a powerful file recovery program that allows users to recover data previously thought to be lost forever.

Recovering lost, deleted or corrupt data with MiniTool Power Data Recovery is simple and straightforward, in stark contrast with other data recovery tools that have difficult to use interfaces. All you need to do is select the recovery mode, select the location from which you want to recover data from, and let MiniTool do the rest. The latest version, v8.6, offer multiple language support too, with French, German, Italian and Japanese among the languages that this file recover software can be launched in. Version 8.6 also improves scanning speed, and enhances the accuracy of the results. Data can be recovered from most devices including hard disk drives, solid-state drives, USB flash drives, SD cards, CDs and DVDs. The improved interface in v8.6 means you can undertake file recovery easily, with little knowledge of the techniques involved.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery supports most file systems, including FAT 12/16/32, exFAT, NTFS and HFS+. To download and install the software, we’d advise using a secondary hard drive, perhaps an external hard drive or a USB flash drive. At the very least, install it on a secondary partition. The reason file recovery software like MiniTool is able to work is because the master file table reference is what is missing; the data is still intact as a series of 0s and 1s. File recovery software repairs the master file table, allowing you to access your original data. However, your operating system will view this space as free, ready to write additional data. So, installing file recovery software to your main hard drive could be counterproductive, and permanently delete your data.

Once you’ve installed MiniTool Power Data Recovery onto your secondary drive, you’re ready to begin searching for data to recover. The interface will allow you to customise your scan, and you can select from different drives, file systems and you can narrow the search down to particular file types if you want (documents, photos, music, video etc). Once you begin the scan, the results can be filtered by file type on the left-hand side of the screen. Files can be previewed before restored, which is handy if you don’t want to make the full purchase without knowing if this file recovery software can help you. Once you’ve found the files you want to recover, simply press the ‘Save’ button, choose a directory (again, we’d recommend another drive), then your files will be saved.  

MiniTool Power Data Recovery is available on both Windows and Mac, priced at $69; the free version of this file recovery software allows you to recover up to 1GB of data. In terms of performance, there is no difference between the free and paid versions; both are equally as powerful. The only difference is the amount of data you can recover.
