Scan hard drive

Do Your Data Recovery provides two data recovery modes to ensure finding everything you want to recover.

It typically takes only a few minutes to complete, so we strongly recommend that you try it first. If you can't find what you want, please click "Advanced Recovery" to find more lost files.

After scanning, all the found files will be displayed in three categories: Path, Type, Time. You can preview the pictures, documents, videos or other files before you decide to recover them. Click 'Recover' to save them on your computer or storage media.
