The Process of Recovery - How It Works

As soon as you install Disk drill Windows Data Recovery, the program scans your entire system. During this process, it identifies the various files and formats found in various folders scattered throughout your system. Along with identification, it learns the health and status of your computer drives. Smart detection technologies identify bad sectors and implements corrections for more accurate data recovery.

When you’ve lost a file, whether to accidental deletion, boot failures or antivirus protection, Disk Drill offers two scanning options for recovery:

  • Quick Scan - The faster you begin the recovery process, the greater your chances of a full recovery. This setting swiftly scans through your system looking for files marked removed, but with its data still intact.
  • Deep Scan - For files and folders hidden within your storage drives, this option works best. When activated, this setting dives deep into your computer to identify various file structures and works to reconstruct missing file elements. Ultimately, this methodology restores corrupt or missing files to its original binary structure.

Perhaps the most notable feature of Disk Drill Windows Data Recovery is its protected data markers. The most proactive way to prevent accidental deletion is to protect sensitive and valuable files. In the program interface, you can mark specific files as protected. This action prevents accidentally deleting these files. Should these files be altered, all you have to do is click your mouse a few times and these files are restored to their full structure.
