#1 Don’t make the data loss any worse

When you accidentally delete files or even format an entire partition, it’s not the end of the world. A reliable data recovery solution, such as Disk Drill, can help you recover all important data and even recover lost partition itself. That being said, you could make things much worse by not acting quickly enough. As far as your operating system is concerned, the space occupied by the deleted or lost files can be used by other applications. When it gets overwritten, even Disk Drill won’t be able to help you recover your files.

How much time do you have? That depends on the size of your storage device and your computer usage habits. Most users may have a day or two, but some may have just a few hours. Having Disk Drill ready on your computer at all times is the safest bet because it saves your from downloading the installer from the internet, potentially rewriting some important files in the process.

Windows recovery partition with Deep Scan

Disk Drill for Windows puts you in the driver’s seat. You get to choose which files you want to recover and how. By default, Disk Drill uses a data recovery method that offers the perfect balance between recovery speed and scanning depth. There’s also a quick recovery option as well as a data recovery method called Deep Scan, which delivers the best results possible. We recommend this recovery method if you want to recover badly damaged files that the default recovery method couldn’t locate. Deep Scan takes longer than the default recovery method, but the results are well worth the wait.

How Disk Drill serves other users

  • Densi
    I'd like to share my success with Disk Drill: it was all about the last day of a great family trip to Sri Lanka. I let my 7yo daughter play with the camera, which I usually don't agree for that easily. Within 10 minutes... all the pictures were gone. To my greatest relief, Disk Drill recovered the majority of them.
