Fortunately, there are easy-to-use data recovery applications like Disk Drill, which allow anyone to reliably retrieve files deleted from the recycle bin with a click of a button. This is possible because Disk Drill goes beyond the data recovery capabilities of the Windows operating system, focusing, instead, on the underlying filesystem.
Disk Drill’s most powerful data recovery method is the Deep Scan algorithm. Deep Scan looks for file signatures on the selected storage device, allowing it to recognize and recover even files that other data recovery solutions would consider to be forever lost. Its huge database contains over 200 file signatures, covering virtually every popular file format in existence.
You can use Deep Scan on any storage device you want. Disk Drill supports standard hard drives, modern solid-state disks, memory cards, and external USB drivers, just to name a few. It can read data from multiple file systems, including NTFS, FAT32, EXT, and HFS+.
Despite how capable the Deep Scan algorithm is, using it is shockingly simple. After launching Disk Drill, you simply select the storage device from which you would like to recover deleted data and click on the Recover button. In many ways, the Recover button is the soul of Disk Drill. Yes, there’s more to Disk Drill than this button — you can play with advanced settings and control the recovery process in depth —
but the fact that it’s possible to undelete recycle bin content with a single click empowers even inexperience computer users to quickly and easily get back all lost files.
Another data recovery method included in Disk Drill is called Quick Recovery. As the name suggests, Quick Recovery prioritizes data recovery speed over data recoverycomprehensiveness. It works best for recently deleted files. If you want to recover files that have been deleted for a while, you should use the Deep Scan method instead.
Regardless of which recycle bin recovery method you choose, you will be ultimately presented with an assorted list of results. You can filter the list of results according to various criteria and sort it just like files and folders in Windows Explorer. Restoring the files from the list is a matter of a simple mouse click.
