Earlier this week  dotTech and EaseUS teamed up to bring everyone EaseUS Partition Master Professional for free. Well we are at it again, this time featuring EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard  (v5.5.1 – the latest version)!
The following is a description of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, as per the developer:
Advanced and Best data recovery software to do format recovery, unformat and recover deleted files emptied from Recycle Bin or lost data due to partition loss or damage, software crash, virus infection, unexpected shutdown or any other unknown reasons under Windows 2000/XP/Vista/2003/2008 R2 SP1/Windows 7 SP1. It will do an amazing job when the data loss disaster strikes, especially when you want to recover data from formatted drive. Data Recovery Wizard supports hardware RAID and hard drive, USB drive, SD card, memory card, etc. It provides the comprehensive data recovery solution for computer users to recover lost data.
The following chart, created by the developer, provides detailed information about the features of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and also compares and contrasts the feature differences between the different editions of the program (today’s freebie is the “Standard” version shown in the chart):

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.
For the next 48-hours, dotTechies can get EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for free! Keep in mind this version of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard does not come with WinPE.
