dotTech Advice

I am huge fan of EaseUS Partition Master; EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard… not so much. It isn’t that EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a “bad” program; it isn’t “bad”. If I were to rank EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard in terms of quality, I would say it falls in the middle of the pack: I have used better recovery software and I have used worse. (More detail on the quality of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can be found in my full review.) My biggest problem with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is that it is overpriced, in my opinion. Of course for the purposes of this freebie price is a non-issue but nonetheless I feel paying $69.95 for a data recovery program that does not even have a bootable/recovery disk capability is asking a bit much. (EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, i.e. this freebie, does not come with WinPE. A different edition of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard has WinPE.)

All in all, as a general rule of thumb it is always handy to have multiple data recovery software on-hand because each data recovery software may find something slightly different depending on how the program has been coded. So I say grab this freebie while it is available and keep it with you in case the time ever arrives that you need it.

    Hi Ashraf,

    Thank you for making this available. I downloaded the DRW installation file while it was available.

    I have one silly question.

    I’ve grabbed this software as per your recommendation, although I don’t really need to use it right now. I haven’t installed it yet.

    I noticed that during installation, there is a warning advising you to install the software on a hard drive that you don’t want to recover from. I then cancelled the installation and decided to look into why this warning is produced during the installation process. I think it kinda makes sense that you should install this software on an alternative hard drive or partition from the one you need to recover files from. Otherwise, the DRW installation process, or even the recovery process for that matter, could possibly overwrite the deleted/missing files. That’s my understanding, but perhaps there is more to it.

    You recommended to grab this software while it was available because you never know when you need it – By making it part of your toolkit, do you recommend to install it as your toolkit, or do you think its best just to have the installation file on hand and install it only when you need it? If you install it when you need to use it, then at least you can install it on alternative drive to the one you need to recover files from. Therefore, I’m thinking it may be best to just burn the installation file on a CD and store it away in case I ever need to use it in future.

    I also do weekly backups (image and file backups), therefore I’m thinking the only time I may need to use DRW is if an important file ever went missing, due to accidently deleting it from the recycle bin and it was never picked up during the weekly backup cycle.

    Anyone else reading this who is aware of DRW is welcome to respond and share their thoughts.

    Many thanks,

    Nice giveaway. But do they never update this software? I already got this version one and a half year ago.
    I guess using iCare Data Recovery should be better since they update their recovery suite regularily.

    By the way… who makes all this recovery software? The search interface of both of this softwares and some others (wGXe, iToolsoft etc) is nearly the same!
