How many times have you accidentally deleted a file only to realize that you will need them? Let me guess, dozens of times, at least. If you are lucky, then the odds are that you will find it in the Recycle Bin. But if not, things can get a little stressed. Thankfully, that’s not the end of the road as files and information stored on digital devices can be recovered to some extent. And that’s when data recovery tools like iBeesoft come into the picture to help you.
The iBeesoft Data Recovery tool helps you recover files and photos which you might have deleted accidentally from your Windows machine. And what makes this tool immensely helpful is that it works equally well on hard drives and SD cards.
But before we get down to that, let’s have a quick brief on how data recovery tools like iBeesoft works.
How Do Data Recovery Tools Work
So, what happens when you delete a file from your PC? When you hit the Shift+Delete button or format a disk, only the indexing of that specific file is removed and not the files in question. And when you modify or copy new files into the drive, the said space will be overwritten with the new information.
Data recovery tools like iBeesoft take advantage of this method and try to recover the files which your system hasn’t overwritten with new files.
Since we have cleared that, let’s see some of the best features of iBeesoft Data Recovery.
1. Scan Specific Locations
A data recovery system that scans every drive of your PC to recover a single important file is an exhausting affair. Apart that being a time-wasting exercise, it can be quite stressful as well.
Thankfully, iBeesoft lets you pick the drives and partitions which you want to scan.
As soon as you press the Start button, the app’s interface suggests you to select the location (drives and partitions). So, if you had deleted your file from within the Downloads folder, you have to select the respective drive or partition.
And this nifty feature eases the job in hand by many folds.
2. Recover Data from External Drives
As mentioned earlier, this tool also works well on external drives such as SD cards, USB drives, and external hard disks. And the clean and clutter-free interface adds to the experience.
Once you have selected the type of files for recovery, the tool gives you the option to select the drives before you start the scan.
If the files are recoverable and your OS did not overwrite them, you can also check its preview. Right-click on the file name and select Preview from the menu.
For image files, the preview and other details are available on the right panel.
3. Recover Folders with a Large Amount of Data
On top of it, you can also utilize this tool to recover deleted folders with a large amount of data. So if you have deleted the DCIM folder from your DSLR’s memory card, it can still be recovered.
The only precaution you need to take is not to modify the drive further. That will prevent the files from being overwritten with new ones, thus making the data recovery process simple and easy.
4. Supports Various File Formats
iBeesoft supports a wide variety of file types and formats. You can recover photos, audio files, videos as well as documents and archived files. All the options are given to you right before you start the scan.
So, if you want to recover a specific type of file from a specific folder, you can do that too.
Apart from file types, it also supports common file systems such as FAT32, NTFS, exFAT, and HFS (plus). So that helps to widen the scope of recovering your data.
5. Resume Support for Scanning
Interestingly, when you start a scan, the tool will display the time required for the scan to complete. That makes it easy to plan your work around it. On top of it, the recovery process runs in the background without hampering your workflow.
The feature that stands out is the nifty Pause button. Yes, you read that right. If you are scanning a huge drive, you can pause the scan in the middle.
Just hit the Pause button at the top, and that takes care of the matter. When you need to resume again, a click on the Play button will do the trick.
6. Clever Categorization
Another feature that stands out is the clever segregation of data. Once the scan is complete, iBeesoft sorts the data into Path, Type, and Time.
While Type segregates the data as per the file types, Time categorizes the files as per their modified dates. And as you may have guessed, Path displays the partitions.
For instance, if you had several files on your SD card in various formats, Type will organize them into Pictures, Videos, Audio, etc., while Time will show you the last modified dates, respectively.
And all those details make it simple to spot and recover the lost files, especially if you know when the specific partition or drive when they were last modified.
Once you have pinpointed the exact file or files, a simple click on the Recover button is all it takes.
7. Option for Deep Scan
Last but not least, iBeesoft Data Recovery also comes with a deep scan feature. Deep Scan comes in handy for old deleted files and documents. Again, it will help your cause if the drive wasn’t modified after the deletion.
Deep Scan churns out more details than usual and runs for a considerable amount of time.
Like its counterpart, this process doesn’t tax the system, and you should be able to do your work in parallel.
