Do you need to recover files that have been deleted? Data Rescue 3 is the best digital data recovery software on the market for recovering files from a problem hard drive or that have been previously deleted. Data Rescue 3 is completely safe to use since it does not attempt any risky repairs to the drive it is scanning.

A second hard drive with adequate space is necessary to recover data and host Data Rescue’s workspace.

When Data Rescue scans, it uses a workspace folder to hold files of information pertaining to the scan.

Data Rescue will not allow the workspace to be in the same volume that is being scanned.

The workspace may, but does not have to be, on the same volume that you will use to recover

Step 1: Selecting a Drive or Volume to Scan The first step is to select the hard drive or volume that is missing the files. Click on the hard drive or volume icon. Click on the next button.

Step 2: Choose a Task The second step is to select the task to perform on the volume or hard drive. In this case you will want to choose the “ Deleted files Scan” . Click on the Deleted files Scan icon for the task you would like to perform. Click on the Start button. Wait for the Scan Process to complete.

Step 3: Find and Mark Files The third step is to mark the files and folders to be recovered. Marking a folder will automatically mark all the files and folders contained within the folder. The Reconstructed Files results will organize any found files by category and file type. These results will NOT have their original directory structure and will usually not have their original file names since they are found by file patterns. You will want to look through the Reconstructed Files results if you are recovering from a hard drive that was accidentally reformatted or had files that were accidentally deleted.
