Have you ever accidentally deleted an important file or lost data due to a virus attack, hard drive failure or formatting? If so, you may be wondering if there is any way to get your files back. Fortunately, there is a software tool that can help you recover deleted or lost data from your computer or other devices: ParetoLogic Data Recovery.
ParetoLogic Data Recovery is a powerful and easy-to-use software utility that recovers a wide variety of file types, such as photos, documents, videos, music, emails and more. It can retrieve deleted files from explorable devices such as cameras, iPods, MP3 players and flash drives. It can also scan your hard drive for deleted partitions and restore them. It works with Windows XP, Vista and 7.
In this article, we will show you how to use ParetoLogic Data Recovery to recover your deleted or lost files in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download and install ParetoLogic Data Recovery
You can download ParetoLogic Data Recovery from its official website[^1^] or from other trusted sources[^2^] [^4^] [^5^]. The download file is about 6 MB and the installation process is quick and easy. Just follow the instructions on the screen and accept the license agreement. You will need to enter your email address to activate the trial version of the software.
Step 2: Select the scan mode and location
After installing ParetoLogic Data Recovery, launch it from your desktop or start menu. You will see the main interface of the software, which has four tabs: Quick Scan, Advanced Scan, Guided Scan and Email Recovery.
The Quick Scan mode is the fastest and easiest way to recover deleted files. It scans your hard drive for recently deleted files and displays them in a list. You can also choose to scan a specific folder or device by clicking on the Browse button.
The Advanced Scan mode is more thorough and can recover files that have been overwritten or damaged. It can also scan for deleted partitions and restore them. However, this mode takes longer and requires more disk space.
The Guided Scan mode is a wizard that guides you through the recovery process step by step. It asks you some questions about the type, location and date of the files you want to recover and then performs the appropriate scan.
The Email Recovery mode is a special feature that can recover lost or deleted emails from the most popular mail applications, such as Microsoft Outlook[^1^] [^4^]. It tries to read the data stored in the email client's cache file in this case.
For this example, we will use the Quick Scan mode to recover some photos that we deleted from our camera. We connect our camera to our computer via USB and select it as the scan location. Then we click on the Start Scan button.
Step 3: Preview and recover your files
Once the scan is complete, ParetoLogic Data Recovery will show you a list of all the files that it found. You can sort them by name, size, type or date. You can also use the search box to find a specific file by name or text.
To preview a file, just click on it and it will show you a thumbnail image or a text snippet. You can also double-click on it to open it with its default application. This way, you can check if the file is intact and what you are looking for.
To recover a file, just check the box next to it and click on the Recover button. You will be asked to choose a destination folder where you want to save the recovered file. You can also rename the file if you want. Make sure you do not save the file to the same location where it was deleted from, as this may overwrite it and make it unrecoverable.
You can select multiple files at once by holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on them. You can also select all files by checking the box next to Name at the top of the list.
After recovering your files, you can close ParetoLogic Data Recovery or perform another scan if you want.
