Important Features at a Glance
Along with continued maintenance and enhancement of the already existing program components there are many new and helpful functions available. The new version can recognize even more file types, for instance Microsoft Office 2013 documents. The recovery of picture and video files from digital cameras has been enhanced, and the search for compressed files, in particular ZIP and 7-zip files, has been further enhanced.
What to do when data is unintentionally lost
If you’d like to recover data that’s been accidentally deleted, immediately stop all further write activity on the storage volume involved, because only files that have not been overwritten are capable of being accurately restored. Even looking for a suitable data recovery product on the Internet and downloading it can overwrite important data sectors and make recovering data more difficult, if not impossible. That’s why it’s so important to have O&O DiskRecovery already installed on your computer, before trouble strikes.
Using O&O DiskRecovery in an emergency
If O&O DiskRecovery is not already installed on your computer when trouble strikes, the instant installation is ready to help you. All you’ll need is a second computer and a removable drive (e.g., USB Stick, external hard disk). Start the installation on the second computer and save the “Instant Installation” on the removable drive. You can then connect this drive to the target computer on which you want to recover data, and run O&O DiskRecovery from there. Doing so will let you avoid a complete installation on the target computer, which in turn could possibly overwrite important sectors of the hard disk that are needed for a restoration.
Three integrated search algorithms
The three integrated search options contain different recovery technologies that can be used separately or in combination with one another. The search algorithm O&O UnErase can be used for quick scanning. The search algorithm O&O FormatRecovery allows for data recovery on disks that are damaged but still accessible. The search algorithms from O&O Disk Recovery scan every sector of a disk for file signatures which can then be used to reconstruct files, even when the whole directory has been deleted or overwritten.
O&O DiskRecovery Preview function
Upon completion of the scanning process, you’ll be able to preview the recovered data.
O&O DiskRecovery supports various picture and text formats for the preview function, including JPEG, BMP, TIFF, TXT.
