If in need of a simple and reliable software tool to recover all your data with a minimum of stress, iSkysoft Data Recovery is a serious option to consider. It opens a 4-step wizard that will guide you smoothly and surely through the entire recovery process. This app is capable of bringing back to life nearly any lost, deleted, or formatted file that you thought lost forever.

It doesn’t matter if you formatted the drive that hosted your most valuable data, or if it was attacked by some virus, if you reinstalled your operating system without making a backup copy of your files and folders, or if you simply deleted a sensitive document by accident – iSkysoft Data Recovery has been specifically designed to help you out in all of these already stressful situations. Thus, on first launch, it will open a wizard that will ask you a couple of very simple questions that will help the program to narrow its search and thus gain time. Once you have told the program the type of file you want to recover and where it was stored, all you need to do is relax and watch the program perform a deep scan of the selected drive looking for your lost files. You will be shown a list of all the files that fall into the selected category and susceptible of being recovered. Some you will be able to preview, and some you won’t. Each file will be given a recovery status (good, bad, or poor) that will give you a hint about the quality and the level of completeness of the recovered file.

Unless otherwise indicated, the program will always open up this wizard-like interface every time you launch it. Alternatively, you may want to go to the program’s main menu (Home), where you will be offered new options, such as a partition recovery tool and a “raw data” recovery function. The latter will come in handy whenever the scan process is unable to detect and undelete your lost files using the standard algorithms.

iSkysoft Data Recovery is not only a reliable and thorough tool, capable of recovering nearly any file you may have lost or deleted, but also truly easy to use. I find this feature – sadly overlooked in many other similar tools – to be of the highest importance from the user’s perspective. Losing your sensitive and beloved data is a painful enough experience without having to struggle with a cryptic recovery tool. If you want to avoid this extra stress, you may want to give this tool a try.
