EaseUS provides a strong line-up of data services that are both powerful enough to meet the necessities of IT professionals and easy enough to be used by everyone. During this review, we’ll be examining its data recovery solution, Data Recovery Wizard.
When you open EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard (v11.6), all it takes is one click to begin the data recovery process. This program wastes no time; it immediately starts scanning your drive and saving your valuable data. EaseUS delivers decisive results, and it has useful traits for businesses that ensure your unwittingly lost data is never permanently erased.
Performance and Recovery Rating
As part of our review of EaseUS Data Recovery software, we conveyed a two-part test with each of the 10 apps we selected for our conclusive list. For our first test, i.e recycle bin recovery, we tried to restore files that had been deleted and removed from the recycling bin. EaseUS retrieved all of our images, video, documents, and audio. The software accomplished this with its quick scan feature, which took only a while.
The performance in our second test that includes recovering data that was deleted while the hard drive was formatted was also impressive. Since formatting removes and replaces a drive’s file system, it becomes more complicated. However, EaseUS scanned and recovered almost all the lost data that includes 100% of all image files. It also recovered most of the other test data which includes an average of 96% of document files and 91% of audio/video files.
Easy To Use
As the name suggests, EaseUS makes data recovery easy for any user whether you’re an IT engineer or someone who has never used any data recovery software. The process is directed to the extent that retrieving the lost data takes just a few clicks. Once you launch the wizard, the first screen shows the hard drives that are available for recovery, with a button to initiate the scan. You need to select the desired drive, hit the button, and the scanning begins instantly. Unlike other software, there’s no setting to choose a quick scan, a deep scan or a custom/specialized scan.
The wizard begins right away with a quick scan. And if no files are found, it will automatically start an in-depth scan. This is a direct, time-saving feature. However, it’s also thorough. EaseUS seeks to recover everything it can recover from your drive without making you try a different scanning mode. For those who prefer more access to this process, this could be a drawback. When scanning your drives, you can also pause the process and come back to it later when you want.
Recovery is just as easy. A simple file tree layout shows the recovered data, which you can further examine using different viewing options. Once the scan is completed, next to the progress bar, there is an Export button that allows you save the scan results to continue recovery later.
The Preview button allows you to view files to see if the file in issue is the one you’re looking for and if it’s complete or not. To restore files, just tick the boxes next to the files, folders or entire partitions you want to save and then just hit the Recover button, which then allows you to select where you want to save the files.
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard has nearly every tool you will need to run data recovery for your work. The most important feature is remote network access. Either you or your IT expert can act fast to locate missing files, which is important for successful data recovery. A system that’s connected to the office’s network can be quickly scanned and recovered from any distant location, allowing for an easy recovery for both for you and your employees. EaseUS Data Recovery can also be run on RAID systems if required.
In case you have a computer that’s entirely crashed and won’t load your OS, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard comes with a version that can be launched from any bootable device to recover your data. There is also a technician version which is made for commercial use. All versions come with lifetime updates and upgrades from the developer.

If you’re an EaseUS customer, you get access to technical support via live chat, phone, and email. The program itself has an immediate email link to technical support in the top-right corner of the menu. Besides the live support, the website has online guides for all of its products and a user forum.
Also, the website features a knowledge base that’s regularly updated with the articles on data recovery and other IT news. There is also a community where you can share and receive answers from the software developers.
