About Us

Handy Recovery is a leading website dedicated to data recovery, covering everything from data recovery products and techniques to various tips and tricks that can help users avoid data loss. Since the launch of the site, Handy Recovery has accumulated one of the largest collections of data recovery-related content on the web, and the site’s content is being continuously expanded to reflect the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Our team consists of data recovery professionals who have many years of experience with the topics they’re writing about. This experience allows us to explain data recovery techniques in a language even regular users can easily understand. We never recommend products or services without thoroughly testing them first because we’re firmly committed to providing our readers with 100 percent objective and unbiased information.

In the past, Handy Recovery readership consisted predominantly of IT professionals and computer geeks, but that’s no longer the case today. As our lives filled with electronic devices, the topic of data recovery became mainstream, and our website started attracting regular users desperate to get back lost family photos, work and school documents, collections of songs and movies, and other data.

Today, the importance of data recovery solutions is well-understood, but there’s still a lot of confusion when it comes to the actual process of recovering deleted and lost files from various storage devices, including internal and external hard drives (HDDs and SSDs), memory cards (SD, SDHC, SDXC, microSD, MMC, etc.), USB flash drives, and more.

We sincerely hope that our data recovery articles can lay this confusion to rest and make it possible for absolutely everyone to restore lost data in the most cost-effective manner possible. Remember: just because data loss can happen at any time doesn’t mean that you’re defenseless.

Why did we choose the topic of data recovery when we created this website?

We decided to dedicate this website to the topic of data recovery because of the growing importance of data in our lives. Virtually everyone these days uses at least one electronic device on a daily basis, relying on it to take notes, create documents and presentations, snap pictures, record videos, listen to music, and more. All these activities generate data, and this data can be lost just as easily as it can be created. With our data recovery articles, we aim to help users get back lost data with confidence and without spending more money than absolutely necessary.

What are our main principles when preparing articles?

When creating content for our website, we always assume a neutral stance to every topic we approach because our goal is to provide readers with objective information that is not colored by our personal preferences. This helps us ensure that we always explore the topics we cover from multiple angles before we commit to any single solution.

How do we test data recovery software?

To test data recovery software applications, we always simulate a data loss scenario to get an accurate idea of the application’s real-life data recovery performance. Realizing that performance isn’t the only factor that matters when selecting data recovery software, we also focus on usability, compatibility, customer support, extra features, and value.

How do we decide which topics to cover?

Data loss can happen on any device and any operating system, which is why we strive to cover as many data recovery topics as possible. When deciding which topic to write about next, we take into account how well the topic is already covered by other websites, how many people are actively searching for it, and also the feedback we directly receive from our readers.

What makes experts on data recovery?

Our staff consists of seasoned data recovery professionals who have personally recovered countless lost, corrupted, and accidentally deleted files from hard drives, memory cards, USB flash drives, and other storage devices. We understand what modern data recovery solutions can do, but we’re also well-aware of their limitations, as well as the potential roadblocks users may run into when recovering files at home.
