Introduction

EaseUS and Wondershare Recoverit both include an attractive and straightforward user interface to make the recovery of your data easy. But, looks aren’t everything. After all, an appealing user interface isn’t going to recover your data. Therefore, in this comparison, we put the two up against each other to see which can offer the most to its users.

We’ve already thoroughly reviewed each of these tools against specific data points. This comparison will be based on what each tool can objectively offer you to ensure it remains unbiased and fact-based. Let’s dive in.

Top EaseUS Pros

  • Scan results. Scan results are easy to navigate and grouped in a user-friendly file tree.

  • Scan speed. Scanning is very fast and doesn't make you wait a long time for results.

  • Free recovery. The software lets you recover up to 2 GB of data for free if you agree to mention the product on a social media network.

Top Recoverit Pros

  • Modern interface. The interface is modern and up-to-date. There are options to scan folders and other specific locations, like the Recycle Bin. But, this is primarily a cosmetic addition that does little to aid with recovery outside of user experience.

  • Create bootable disks. The program can create bootable disks that bypass the operating system, allowing you to recover your data.

  • Video Repair. The program can repair video files that refuse to play.

Top EaseUS Cons

  • Pop-up ads. Pop-up ads for other products appear frequently, and they can't be turned off.

  • Inaccurate time estimations. When the software estimates how much time an operation will likely take, the displayed time is almost always wrong.

  • Limited preview capabilities. The formats supported for previews are very limited, and even popular photo formats are not always viewable.

Top Recoverit Cons

  • False positives for bad sectors on Bitlocker devices. When scanning Bitlocker-encrypted devices, the program shows that there are bad sectors. This is a false positive.

  • Scanning Bitlocker-encrypted devices. In order to scan devices encrypted by Bitlocker, you need to unlock them in the operating system.

  • Confirming Bitlocker status. In order for the program to detect that the Bitlocker volume is unlocked, it needs to restart.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and Wondershare Recoverit are very similarly priced, with Recoverit being just slightly cheaper. Wondershare Recoverit has three different plans for personal users, each allowing you to purchase on a monthly, yearly, or lifetime basis. The lowest plan, Essential, offers only file recovery. The highest plan, Premium, gives you full access to the software, including the bootable toolkit and advanced recovery features. EaseUS makes it a little bit simpler, offering full access to the software with the option of monthly, yearly, or lifetime licenses, each one coming with free upgrades.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard offers a much better allocation for free data recovery at 2GB as opposed to the 100MB offered by Wondershare Recoverit, which is great for trialing the software. If you’re looking for barebones recovery, Wondershare Recoverit’s Essential license is the cheapest of the two. But, if you’re looking for more reliable recovery (which we’ll discuss later), consider spending just a little bit more on an EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard license. 

Data Recovery Performance

A data recovery application can have all the bells and whistles, but none of that is important if it struggles to adequately recover your files. How well can each recovery tool recover your lost data from various file systems? Let’s take a look.

As you can see, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard offers support for more file systems with its deep scan. It has full support for common file systems like NTFS and HFS+. On the other hand, Wondershare Recoverit only offers partial support for any file system it recovers from, and the Windows version doesn’t support recovery from drives with macOS file systems.

The efficiency of a quick scan determines how well it can quickly recover files that were recently deleted based on the file system that was used. Neither of the recovery tools support the quick scan of EXT4, HFS+, or APFS partitions. Although both offer full support for NTFS, only EaseUS has partial support for FAT32 and exFAT partitions, making it the superior option in terms of quick scan support.

A well-rounded data recovery tool will offer other scan types. Both EaseUS and Wondershare Recoverit offer file discovery by file signature, but Wondershare Recoverit supports a lot more formats. It also offers partial support for discovering lost partitions, which isn’t supported at all by EaseUS. However, EaseUS offers full support for BitLocker-encrypted drives, as well as the labeling of recovered files.

Recovery performance is where the gap between the two starts to increase. EaseUS largely outperformed Wondershare Recoverit in the real-life recovery challenge that involved raw recovery. Wondershare Recoverit struggled to recover common file styles such as MP4 and MOV, as well as most other video formats. As a whole, EaseUS offered better support for a wide range of file types, many of which Wondershare Recoverit didn’t support at all, such as ERF, MXF, ACCDB, and RTF for example.

Feature Comparison

A good data recovery tool comes with additional features that add value to the application. They’re a great way to retain loyal users and add further functionality that could add an extra layer of protection against data loss.

Both EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and Wondershare Recoverit are regularly updated and have an active presence on social media. Support is also good for both applications, with each having helpdesk, live chat, and phone support channels. A changelog isn’t available for Wondershare Recoverit, so it’s not easy for users to review what changes have been made to the software.

In terms of Usability, both applications are very similar, with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard having a slight edge thanks to the ability to sort results. Aside from that, you’ll find that both EaseUS and Wondershare Recoverit feature a modern user interface that makes it easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. 

Both recovery tools have similar support for devices, but EaseUS is just a bit better as it offers partial support for recovery from RAID setups. Neither of the recovery tools supports recovery from iOS or Android devices, but EaseUS does have a separate recovery tool, EaseUS MobiSaver, specifically for mobile recovery.

Both tools have some other notable recovery features, but nothing outstanding. You can create bootable recovery drives with either of the tools, allowing you to perform recovery even if the drive containing your operating system is compromised. EaseUS has scan session management so you can easily review scan results at a later time if needed. On the other hand, Wondershare Recoverit allows you to scan free space only, which isn’t possible with EaseUS.

After successful recovery, some videos may be corrupted due to the damage inflicted on the drive. Both recovery tools offer the ability to repair corrupted videos, but EaseUS only offers it as a separate option. Outside of this, there are no other extras found in either of the tools. 

Wrapping Up

After a detailed look at what each data recovery tool has to offer, it’s clear that EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard comes out on top for this one. Both are similarly priced and relatively easy to use for a user of any level, but the similarities stop when it comes to recovery performance. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard has better support for more file types, proving itself to be a more effective and reliable data recovery tool when compared to Wondershare Recoverit.
