As a powerful data recovery software, Nice to Recover Data for Mac supports two independent recovery modes for recovering data on a specific partition, they are Deep Scan Recovery and Deleted File Recovery. The majority of similar products provide only Deep Scan Recovery mode, let alone performing well at both of them. Today we are going to introduce the two different recovery modes and make a comparison.
Deep Scan Recovery is also called RAW Recovery. We all know that a disk is made up of numerous sectors in which our data is recorded in a specific format. The feature of Deep Scan Recovery is to scan the disk sector by sector for lost data in a proper order. The recovery is very comprehensive and with good quality. And there is no file system limitation, supporting HFS,HFST+,EXT2,EXT3,FAT16,FAT32,NTFS, etc. Despite all these, the original names of recovered files are lost.
Now, let’s have a close look at Deep Scan Recovery and Deleted File Recovery.
- Select Deep Scan Recovery from the main interface
- Select disk and partition where you are about to search for lost data.
- Select desired file type for recovery on entering Deep Scan Recovery. Specify file type can boost the recovery process dramatically.
- Note: There are two options on the right. One is Quick Scan, the other is Deep Scan. If you select Quick Scan, then you will only find deleted file in the partition, if your selection is Deep Scan, you will find both deleted and undeleted files inside the partition. The former one is recommended is you merely want to find your lost data.
- When the Recovery process is finished, recovered files will be listed. If you are using Deep Scan mode, they will be classified automatically according to file types, such as pictures, documents, videos and so on.
- You might want to preview the files to make sure whether they the very files you are looking for, our software provides you with several methods to do this. The first way is to preview files inside the file previewer which has a limitation of 5M file size. Another way is double-clicking the file or press the space key which supports as large as 50M file size. When choosing this way, you can use the arrow keys to switch among the previews in the pop-up-window.
- Finally, click the Recover button and save the files to a specific location. Remember not to choose the original disk as the destination which may cause permanent data damage.
