Complete Data Recovery Software Solution

The number of tasks the average user performs on a computer has never been greater. Consequently, internal and external storage devices are filled with huge amounts of data and a multitude of file formats. Many outdated and inefficient file recovery software and data management solutions fail to cope with this reality, delivering mediocre results. Disk Drill for Windows is a comprehensive data recovery app intended to recover all commonly used file formats from internal and external storage devices, such as USB drives, hard drives, SSDs, or memory cards.
  • All Versions of Windows: Disk Drill for Windows doesn’t work with just the latest version of the Windows operating system—it works with all of them! Microsoft may no longer support Windows XP, but we still do, alongside Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
  • Over 300 File Formats: Disk Drill for Windows can recognize and recover over 300 different file formats. This covers virtually every commonly used file format in existence, ensuring that your work won’t ever be lost no matter which application you’ve used.
  • Guaranteed Results: Disk Drill for Windows works so well that we can offer it for free. The results speak for themselves, and they’ve already convinced hundreds of thousands of professional clients to upgrade from the Free version to the Pro version.

Recovery Algorithms for Every Occasion

Not all data recovery scenarios are the same. Sometimes, you need to recover a recently deleted file of a commonfile type from a known location. Then there are the situations when you need to recover an unknown number of filesfrom an unknown location, and you don’t even know what file types you are recovering. If you think about it, it doesn’t really make sense to use the same data recovery method in both cases.
The first scenario is perfect for a fast data recovery algorithm that takes just a few seconds to scan the selected storage devices, instead of several minutes to scan all connected storage devices. Disk Drill’s Quick Scan algorithm fits the task perfectly. With it, you can almost instantly recover a recently deleted file and get right back on track.

The second data recovery scenario requires a more thorough approach, the one that digs deep to reconstruct lost files based on their binary structure. Disk Drill for Windows comes with the Deep Scan, which can recognize digital file signatures of over 200 file formats and recover deleted files even after emptying the Recycle Bin.

As powerful as the combination of the Quick Scan and the Deep Scan data recovery algorithms is, Disk Drill goes a step further. Some files and folders are too important to risk losing even with such a powerful data recovery software solution as Disk Drill for Windows. To protect the most valuable data, Disk Drill comes with a feature called Recovery Vault.

Recovery Vault is, as the name suggests, a digital vault for your data. Anything you place in it will be automatically protected from accidental deletion. Disk Drill will keep secure backups of the content of Recovery Vault, it allows you to restore files and folders from it in a matter of seconds. Unlike with manual backups, the metadata of any deleted file are backed up as soon as the associated file is deleted, making the recovery of the file much more bullet-proof.

Deleted Files Recovery Perfected

We firmly believe that complex problems require comprehensive solutions. Comprehensive doesn’t necessarily mean complicated — quite the opposite in the case of Disk Drill for Windows — but it always means capable of approaching the problem from multiple angles.

Data loss may occur randomly, it may be caused by a malware infection, or it may be a sign of a failing storage device. Data loss may be minor, or it may be utterly devastating in its scope. Data loss may occur on the main system drive while you’re sitting in front of the affected computer, or it may occur on a memory card in your digital camera.
Solving every conceivable data loss scenario with a single software solution is challenging, but Disk Drill for Windows has succeeded.

  • Data Recovery Options: Disk Drill comes with the right data recovery method for every occasion. You can dive deep into its settings and control the data recovery process to the finest degree, or you can let Disk Drill handle everything for you.
  • Extensive Storage Device Support: No storage device is perfect. Not knowing which storage device might be affected by data loss means that you need to be prepared to recover files from all commonly used storage devices — not a problem with Disk Drill.
  • Backup Functionality: When a storage drive starts to fail, sometimes it’s best to leave data recovery for later and focus on data backup, instead. Disk Drill can back up volumes and partitions into ISO and DMG images.
  • Handy Data Recovery: Disk Drill for Windows puts you in the driver’s seat. You can pause and resume the data recovery process as you need, and, if you want to, you can select which data recovery algorithm to use.
  • Modern User Interface: Modern design isn’t just about pretty graphics and colorful icons — it’s also about excellent usability and discoverability. Thanks to Disk Drill’s modern user interface, it’s easy to learn how to use all its features without ever reading the manual. The fact that the software looksgreat doesn’t hurt, either.
  • Free Version: Being able to test software for free before purchase shouldn’t be taken for granted. Even though the Windows operating system is highly standardized, non-standard hardware components and third-party applications may affect the compatibility with data recovery solutions such as Disk Drill. Download the free trial version of Disk Drill and give it a spin to see how it works on your system — you can even recover up to 100MB of data of data for free!


Disk Drill Versus Handy Recovery

Handy Recovery is a hard drive recovery software solution that shares some, but certainly not all, features with Disk Drill for Windows.

Handy Recovery supports the FAT, NTFS, and HFS file system; it can recover files from internal hard drives as well as external USB drives and memory cards; it can recover files even after they have been deleted from the Recycle Bin; just like Disk Drill, it works on all versions of the Windows operating system from Windows XP up.
But these similarities aside, Handy Recovery can’t match the sheer scope of features offered by Disk Drill, nor can it match Disk Drill’s polished user interface and design. Looking at the two data recovery solutions side by side, it’s clear that there’s a generational gap between them.

Handy Recovery is a data recovery solution from the time when computers were associated with geeks and equally geeky paid IT professionals. Users are expected to know things they should never worry about, and the outdated design doesn’t inspire confidence, to say the least. Handy Recovery also doesn’t support nearly as many file systems as Disk Drill, and it’s limited to a single data recovery algorithm.

Disk Drill, on the other hand, exemplifies how user-friendly can modern software be. Disk Drill speaks in the language users without deep IT knowledge understand, yet it can do everything that much less accessible data recovery tools can. Disk Drill features the right data recovery algorithm for every occasion, and it supports over 300 file formats and virtually all commonly used storage devices. What’s more, it comes with a number of free tools to help you better organize your data, prevent future data loss incidents, and easily create reliable backups.



But what’s perhaps the most important, Disk Drill takes the complexity out of the data recovery equation. With its signature Recover button, it takes just a single click to recover all lost files and folders. No more reading boring manuals, no more fighting with a poorly designed user interface, no more deciphering of obscure technical terms. Disk Drill for Windows is a professional data recovery tool for everyday users. It delivers fantastic results and removes most of the things that make data recovery so unpleasant.

Considering the free version can recoverup to 100MB of data of data, there’s no reason not to give Disk Drill a try and see what it can do and how simple it makes data recovery of virtually every popular file type from any storage device.

Don't take our word for it!
