I finally had a chance to try this program.
I lost a drive for some reason. I lost the data and drive only showed up as a RAW drive. This program did not recognize this drive was installed.

I reformatted the drive through XP pro administrative options. The program would then recognize the drive but could not find any data at all. Save your money for back up, don't buy this program.

I have an external WD 250gb HDD [FAT 32] that crashed last week when the power failed destroying the partition. I tried several recovery programs, none of which would do the job and was about to buy SpinRite ($89)when this one showed up here. I installed and after about 5 min. it had located the logical drive partition and rebuilt the directory information. It then set to copying the data to an internal HDD on my desktop (XP) system. After several hours of copying [231gb], it finished and everything I have tested/checked so far seems to be in perfect condition. Thank you Easeus! I have already begun recommending your product.

Day before i struggled a lot with my laptop that some files are corrupted due to deletion of one User profile, i got important files in that. Fortunately yesterday i downloaded this software and recovered all my files. I can say this software is very useful and brilliant.

Assistance please: downloaded this. Unzipped to C:program files. Said it activated successfully then took me to the GAOTD website! Can find the exe file on my C drive, but when I dbl-click, it goes back into the install process and asks to overwrite the previous install...but I can't find the unzipped program to open. What am I doing wrong??

I tried to install this but the initial setup.exe can't reach a server to activate the program.

I turned off every firewall I have and left my system wide open yet it couldn't turn the software on.

Too bad too...it sounds like it would have been a nice piece of software.

I just hope GAOTD doesn't start using this routine in all their releases, it would leave me out in the cold.

Not a newbie, far from it, but do not understand the limits of some recovery programs etc. I installed this on a usb to put on a different computer in a few minutes, not sure if it can be run from a 'usb'??
I installed again, to put on this computer I'm on...on c drive in Program files as I only have one partition. When I went to open it, it also wanted to remove it. Question being, is this installed or not? It said it was activated, yet no activation code etc box came up as with normal programs on this site. do I start from scratch because it counted the download to usb as my download? I am Totally lost. I've read all these comments and feeling alittle dumb as I don't quite understand what I've done wrong. My guess would be....the usb download counted????? Thanks in advance if someone can make this clear to me...I'm clueless. I would prefer this to stay and run from a usb if possible, but I'm not clear if people are successful with that or not.

I have not been able to get it to successfully undelete a file so far. It finds the deleted file name just fine, but the contents are either missing completely or scrambled. This is immediately after deleting the file, then attempting to restore the file to a shared drive on another computer on the network.

re #23: I have only a C drive + external drive. If I'm not supposed to install this on my C drive (as that could be the drive that might have lost files/folders) can I install it on my external drive? If not, I just install on my C drive and take a risk that in trying to recover something on my C drive, I'll not mess up good folders/files?

My evaluation of Easeus Data Recovery Wizard primarily covered Partition Recovery. I have 15 partitions on 3 Hard Drives. My C System Drive is on its own 40gig drive separate from the 3 Drives that are partitioned.
I installed Easeus Data Recovery Wizard on a little used Partition named Catch All. That is whenever it asked, during both setup and install, where it was to be located I indicated J:/Data Recovery Wizard. Thus, i made sure that no default would be placed on my System Drive as would normally be the default. The result is that I will have no conflicts with My System Drive nor 14 of the 15 partitions on the other drives.

My Test... On Drive O (Animations) I deleted all of my animations. Of course I preivously backed them up using my Genie Backup System to my Back Up Disk Drive so they could restored if my test was unsuccessful.
I am happy to report that Easeus Data Recovery Wizard recovered all of of my Animations.

A Big Thumbs up to Easeus. This application works fine for me just as your Partition Manager from a few months back has.

I expect to get negative feedback for this, but...

As a software engineer, I am appalled by this program. I understand that the author's native language is not English, and that's perfectly fine, but just have everything translated by a professional..... After finding numerous English language errors throughout the installer, the program itself, and the documentation, I would never use this program, much less spend $69.95 for it!.

From the main screen: "Data Recovery Wizard is an easy-to-use, professional data recovery software. It is excellently competent for most data losses covering servers, desktops and laptops for most media."

I'm sorry, but whenever I develop professional software, I always make sure that it is free of simple typographical errors, much less widespread, systematic grammatical errors.....otherwise, my clients would laugh me out of a job.

Unfortunately, I cannot speak for the actual usage or operation of this software, because I uninstalled it after reading "Detecting failure! Please make sure the flowing of network." (My firewall blocked the search-for-updates check.)

There are plenty of other options if you are looking for free (or not) data recovery software.

I have no affiliation with any of the linked companies, software, or websites.

82 Robert. I copied the DRW program folder to a USB flash drive and when I opened it, there were TWO application files DRW (64KB) and DRW0 (5,672 KB). I double clicked on each and strangely enough, both acivated the program. Wondering if DRW is a bootstrap for DRW0 or something else is going on. I know just enough to get myself in trouble. Thanks for all your helpful comments.

First time poster here but not a first time downloader. I think that this piece of software is fantastic. I have downloaded it to my personal computer, my 4 office computers and passed it on to my brother for him to download. It just recovered 750mb of pictures from my storage device that i thought i had lost forever. Every single pic is back and the quality is like it was never gone. BRILLIANT STUFF!!!!! THANKS GAOTD!!

These things are normal.You can only install this program once.
When you rerun the setup, it assumes you want to uninstall the program :)

But to solve the problem:(a second install)
just copy your program folder with DRW in it to another (usb)(flash)drive .
To run the program you will have to double click the 'DRW.exe' file or make a shortcut manually.

Don't exaggerate *please* !
Some errors in translation won't harm recovery in anyway ...

Great data renaming wizard(DRW)!!!! I installed this on drive C of my xp sp 2 laptop and tried to recover some deleted audio and pictures files from drive E of size 10GB. The deleted file recovery mode found a no. of files but they are all presently existing on the same drive and DRW recovered them with different file names than their present names. Great application for generating duplicate files with random different names!!!

Then I tried to complete recovery mode of same drive E and this time it took about 12 min for complete recovery and found about 78000 files(!!!) of total size 8 GB. However it showed 100% recovery possible for about 34000 files. Presently I have about 25000 audio and picture files on this drive totalling about 6 GB size and I the last time I had formatted this drive was 4 months back and since then there has been quite a bit of activity on this drive.
I tried to recover 2 audio and 3 picture files which I was specifically looking for and were there in the drive before the last formatting. But DRW could not find them inspite of listing 34000 odd files in the first place. Forget about recovery.

On looking through the files in folder tree I found that it did not list any file before my last format(from the date of creation column). I could be wrong here since it is not possible to go through all the 34000 odd files. But I doubt if I had worked with so many (78000-total files listed) files since my last format since now there are about 25000 files on this drive as I had mentioned before.

On closer look I found that among all the 34000 files which could be succesfully recovered;almost 90%(may be) of them are already present in drive E. A few files here and there shown by red exclamatory marks were not actually present on the drive at present. But these few files I suppose even Recuva or Undelete plus can recover. Then it listed some lost files which represents numerous restore point informations created by Windows system restore and another system restore application Restore It which I am having. I was never interested in these files in the first place. But what really added to these enormous no. of recovered files is a folder listed by DRW as RAW files which possibly listed some of the present existing files as well as deleted files with file names "file 0001" to "file 6989". Thus I think it listed some files twice and renamed the second lot using it own sequential name. However since for these raw files there was no folder structure nor actual name so they are of no use to me.

So I uninstalled this great DRW ( Data renaming & replication wizard)before it could overwrite data on my disks further.
I will stick with recuva and undelete plus for data recovery and restore it 7 for system recovery. For controlled batch renaming I will be using Lupas Rename and Flexible Renamer.

This application must be working wonders for you guys but possibly my Lenovo m/c does not love Chinese software.

Will be back tomorrow for ur comments on tomorrow's offering.

just downloaded this offering but b4 I go, wanted to mention that for single file recovery, it's very hard to beat a very small, portable freeware app called Restoration. May not work for shredded stuff, but as a first step toward recovery, you can't beat it in terms of speed, preserved file names and types and folders too.

I used it today to restore my 'my documents' folder, which somehow disappeared when I tried to back it up to a free online storage account at Humyo (wasn't on Humyo either).

Choose which partition to search, enter the word 'documents,' it instantly turns up my approximately 600 mb folder, all paths preserved: select, choose where to copy to, hit enter -- all fixed up.

Ditto here #70

I installed on a spare SD card. Ran fine in a test, recovering saome mp3 files that were deleted last week but, when I tried another install onto my C drive it asked me if I wanted to uninstall it. This leads me to believe that it placed parts of it's setup on my C drive; probably in the registry.

@(german)werwölfchen (#67):

While I do agree; The portion of the tool I am referencing in my review is the complete and partition recovery tools - If you've dogged your partition, you're likely to not want to have to move all the files afterwards. As mentioned in the review, it is both a pro and a con, just leaned more towards con from my point of view, though barely - It is more of a preference thing really.

Thanks for the input though werwolfohen. I do appreciate it. :)

Thank you to GAOTD and EASEUS for today's offer - I have been looking to buy a recovery program and here you have one offered today. Thanks to 'BladedThoth' for a great review and to the other forum comments. This program downloaded/setup in under 4 minutes. *still wished that it came with a 'desktop-shortcut' option* Hoping this program can locate some files that I wrote letter in a long time ago. Thanks !

Well, I have a question now. I downloaded and installed EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard a couple of hours ago on the fine recommendations here.

I am now running it from my main comp and doing a complete search of my External as I had accidentally deleted some precious photo's from there. Most likely unrecoverable but worth a shot anyways.

The External is FAT32, EASEUS has been checking it now for and hour and 15 minutes, 3 quarters of the way through.

I do have a worry, my CPU is running at 100% and 98% of that is this program. It is a Intel Pentium 4, 3200 MHz. Not to shabby, not the best but..

Not being overly computer savvy (know enough to get in trouble), I am thinking that this could be a real problem and hard on my processor.

Any comments or recommendations please?

Often it is not too good an idea, to do a ‘instant’ recovery of a file on it´s original place.
Imagine what happens, if a text document and a executable were crosslinked: If you 1st undelete the document this will destroy the executable (make it unrevoreable)…
Thus it´s ALWAYS a good idea to copy undeleted files to a defenitly NEW place on a drive without any faults or problems.


Unfortunately you have no control over where on a disk you recover files to - just a different directory doesn't mean you wouldn't get the same disk blocks that were next in line to be allocated. You *must* recover to another drive or you risk overwriting more data on unlinked sectors that could still have been recovered.

A few days ago I accidentally deleted information from a USB stick. Recuva got most of it back. When I downloaded and ran Data Recovery Wizard in the Complete Recovery Mode, I found some files Recuva had missed. Many thanks GOTD. This will be an additional data recovery tool but not my only one.

Often it is not too good an idea, to do a 'instant' recovery of a file on it´s original place.
Imagine what happens, if a text document and a executable were crosslinked: If you 1st undelete the document this will destroy the executable (make it unrevoreable)...
Thus it´s ALWAYS a good idea to copy undeleted files to a defenitly NEW place on a drive without any faults or problems.

'Instant' recovery is only for those rare cases if you accidently deleted a file on a drive without any other faults.

Total unreal recovery critical 3.51GB data/partition that had long lost after went countless success with others recovery programs. Not only that is free. I will pull out my wallet to upgrade Data Recovery Wizard at any given time. My only statement is how deeply I'm grateful to EASEUS that produce a very fine recovery program. Thank you EASEUS.

Pardon me if I sound too novice or ignorant. I really don't know much about computer and started learning about it recently when my computer crashed. One month ago my computer crashed and I tried everything which I could but I couldn't resolve the issue. All I know there was an issue with system 32 and some 'fat' or 'ntfs' file in it. I showed this to one of my friend who knew lot more about comp than me. He couldn't retrieve my files but he reformatted my comp. and installed new windows XP in it. Need not to say.. that now my comp. is working perfectly but I lost all my data in it and really there were some file which were extremely imp. for me.

My question here... now after reformatting... will I be able to retrieve my old files with the help of this soft.?

I will greatly appreciate if somebody will help me with this. I have no idea what to do and am feeling completely in dark regarding this.

Thank you so much, GAOTD. The software works like a dream, and I was able to find many files that had been deleted from my USB-stick.
