Some Highlighted Features of iBoysoft Data Recovery
Recover data from a variety of storage devices
iBoysoft Data Recovery allows you to recover lost data from internal hard drives and portable storage devices, including memory sticks, USB flash drives, SD cards, TF cards and external hard drives.
Recover files from various data loss situations
Except for accidentally deleted files, iBoysoft Data Recovery is powerful enough to help you recover lost data from formatted, inaccessible, corrupted, unreadable, or RAW disks, too. Besides, it can help you retrieve data from BitLocker protected (Windows version) and encrypted APFS (Mac version) disks. Additionally, the software can get back data from deleted or lost partitions.
Recover almost all types of files
iBoysoft Data Recovery supports retrieving diverse types of files. It can recover deleted photos, documents, videos, audio, email files and so on. Some common recoverable file formats are listed below.
1. Image file formats: JPG, JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, etc.
2. Document file formats: TXT, DOC/DOCX, PPT/PPTX, XLS/XLSX, HTML, etc.
3. Video file formats: RMVB, MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV, MOV, etc.
4. Audio file formats: MP3, WMA, WAVE, etc.
5. Executable file formats: EXE, SYS, ISO, etc.
Quick scan and Deep scan
The software has two scan modes to suit different data loss scenarios. Before scanning, it makes analysis and automatically checks or unchecks the “Deep scan” option for optimal results based on the status of the chosen partition or disk. If you need to get back accidentally deleted data, keep Deep scan unchecked and Quick scan will run after you click on “Next” button. It saves time. If you want to get back files which are lost due to disk formatting, disk corruption, virus infection or bad sectors, you are recommended to use Deep scan mode.
Pre-recovery preview of data
The software supports previewing various file types before you recover them. With a single click, you can see the detailed file information including file name, thumbnail, file size and creation date. The software can invoke built-in or installed third-party applications to preview videos, PDF and other files. It is really helpful when there are multiple recoverable copies of a file.
Save session & load session
The software also provides you a great solution when you have to terminate the scanning process. You can click “Save session” to save scanned results to another storage device. Next time, before you use the software to scan the same device or partition, click “load session” and the saved scanned results will be restored to the software. The software will continue to scan other lost files which hadn’t been found last time. Then you can select files to recover. No doubt, this useful feature saves your time to a large extent.
How to Retrieve Data in 3 Simple Steps Using iBoysoft Data Recovery?
I free download the macOS version, install and open it. Then, I am shown with a quite intuitive, concise, and clear user interface.
Then I select my USB flash drive named “Kingston Data Traveler 3.0 Media” where I accidentally deleted data. I notice that here’s a hidden trick that I can perform. Click “iBoysoft Data Recovery” on the top left corner at macOS menu bar, choose “Preferences” and then uncheck the unwanted file systems (which won’t be show in the scanned-out results). This setting can save my time if I remember the attributes of a specific lost file.
Next I click the “Next” button to start scanning. During scanning, I can see progress details including percentage completed, how many files found, time left, and so on. In addition, I can pause the scanning progress by single clicking the pause icon.
At last I filter scanned-out files according to my needs, then select the files I want to recover, and click the “Recover” button.
After that, a window will be popped up for me to assign a place to save the recovered files.
At last, I’d like to make two things clear for you to have a smooth data recovery action.
First, when storing newly recovered data, never assign a place/path which exists in the volume or the partition of the storage device where the data has been deleted, corrupted, or lost. That’s because it may cause permanent damage or loss of the data. Instead, assign a new place.
Second, all data recovery software can only help you with logical data losses caused by maloperation and software errors such as accidental deletion. For physical data losses caused by device damages such as crash, fire burn, component wear, and water soak, it would be better to refer to a mechanic in a data-recovery shop.
