How to Scan the drives using the EaseUS data recovery to recover the data
Here, we examine the Windows version of this recovery tool and the steps we are going to mention here are same for Mac version too.
Note: To test this software we have used a removable pen drive, first we delete its data and then try to recover the same.
Step 1: Run the recovery software and you will see all the attached internal drives including the external USB drives. You can see in the below-given screenshot the attached external USB drive that we use to recover.
Step 2: Select the drive you want to recover, we have selected an external drive.
Step 3: After the selecting the drive, click on Scan button and it moves to scan window where it performs Quick and Deep scanning to recover the files and folders.
Step 4: To recover the files it mostly performs the Deep Scan. At the left side pan, it shows all the partition, files, and folders in the tree format to easily navigate through the recovered files.
Step 5: Once the Deep Scan completes expand the tree view of files and select what you want to recover.
Also, it has filters which help to find out all files with a particular extension. For example, if you want to recover just image files with JPG extension then go to filters panel, select the “Graphics” filter and check the .jpg box.
Now, after selecting what you want to recover, the problem is that the files most of the data recovery software recovers are not with the exact name that your files use to have. Instead of that, all files recover with a common name such as File 1, File 2 and so on. It becomes chaos to know which file you want to recover and to solve that EaseUS data recovery has file preview option. Before recovering the files you can have the preview of the same as shown in the screenshot.

To test this free data recovery version of EaseUS we used the following system configuration:
- Windows 7 64-bit
- Processor- AMD 4 Cores 2.40 GHz
- RAM- 4GB
- 8 GB Removable Sandisk USB disk
We have the couple of files which includes word documents and JPG images in our 8GB removable USB drive. First, we have formatted it and scan using this software to recover the files. It uses the Deep scan for recovery and it took 60 seconds to recover 195 files including our all images and word documents. The file system of USB drive was FAT32 and it covers 159.48 MB of data. The files it recovered are Images, Word documents, .exe, and deleted partitions from our USB. We almost able to recover all the data except two .exe applications which were in the USB drive before formatting.
We have created a video of that too and you can see that below:
How to Recover deleted files and folders using EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free
Unlike other data recovery tools, you don’t need to scan the full hard drive to deal with the unmounted / deleted partitions. The software automatically pulls the information from the partition table and display them too.
The EaseUS scan algorithm is quick, even the deep scan took only 60 seconds to recover data around 160MB which is better than any other data recovery software. The only limitation we faced is that you can’t scan for a particular folder or place which was there in our recently reviewed free Stellar Phoenix data recovery version.
The free version of EaseUS recovers only 2 GB data out of which 500MB comes with software and 1.5GB you will get after sharing the software on social media. If you want to recover more than 2GB you need to upgrade the software. By the way, providing a free version of their paid data recovery application is a big benefit to the IT professional and other users to test it before buying its paid version.
