What is data recovery?
When a computer or storage device becomes damaged or corrupted, the data on it might become inaccessible through normal means. Data recovery is the process of salvaging this data so the user can access it.
In what situations can Secure Recovery for Windows help?
Secure Recovery for Windows can help you recover data when a file or folder has been deleted, partitions have been lost, or a file system has been reformatted or corrupted.
The software will not start properly or crashes immediately. What should I do?
First, try uninstalling and reinstalling the software. If this does not resolve the problem, you will need to contact tech support.
Does the software update automatically?
No; the only way to update your Secure Recovery for Windows software is to download the newer version from our website and install it manually.
I use my drive with Windows and Mac systems at the same time. Will Secure Recovery for Windows work for me?
Yes; this software supports file systems used by both Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
What if all the file system metadata is gone?
Even if all the file system metadata has been overwritten, you might still be able to recover your data using the "file-signature scavenge" method. In this method, the Secure Recovery for Windows software attempts to extract files based on their unique signatures. This can work well for pictures and office documents, but it is less effective with lost folder structures and file names.
What is the difference between the "Quick File Search" and "Full Scan" options?
The quick file search only scans existing file system metadata and takes a few minutes. The full scan, on the other hand, scans every byte of the drive or partition, which could take hours. The full scan produces the most complete results, however, including a file-signature scavenge.
How can I get better results?
Our software is designed to provide the best result possible given the file system metadata left on your media. However, you can increase the odds of success by not running any OS-provided integrity check or file system repair tools (such as chkdsk.exe for Windows) and by not writing any new data to the affected media. If you can't recover your data using Secure Recovery for Windows, you can still use a professional in-lab data recovery service.
