O&O DiskRecovery is a great tool for recovering files that have been deleted from your hard drive, and O&O Media Recovery does essentially the same job for removable media. Whether you have deleted files from a USB drive or have accidentally wiped out digital photos from you camera card, this program will be able to detect recoverable data and restore it to the location of your choice.
The entire process is wizard-based which makes it very easy to recover data. With support for over 80 file formats, MediaRecovery stands a better chance than many other data recovery tools of recognising data that needs to be restored. The program is very similar to other data recovery tools, but the fact that it has been specifically designed to search for recoverable image, video and music files, means that it is significantly faster than more general recovery programs.
There are various drive scanning modes available, so should you find that the quick scan does not discover all of the files you have lost, a more intensive, but slower, scan can be performed. If you are keen to recover a particular file or folder before anything else, a search option is available to help you to home in on that particular data.
MediaRecovery 8 is a major upgrade. In addition to Windows 8 support, the latest version includes improve search algorithms to dig deep to find lost media and a filter function so you can avoid recovering unnecessary files.
