HI All, I am new to this forum. I hope this is the right question to post this forum. Anyhow, I accidentally lost some important data on my computer today. I downloaded a free trial of EaseUSdata however, the free trial only allows you to preview data not recover it.

 

Before I purchase nearly £60 does anyone have any experience with easeUSdata? I like to hear your thoughts with them.I'm not 100% sure even I purchase that I can recover my data so I be taking a chance.  Or alternatively is there any other software out there like this that is either free or cheaper? Thanks

First of all - welcome to BC !

 

Try Recuva by Piriform, a free download from BC, you can get it here -

When using any recovery software, Recuva included, it is best to recover to a different drive. If you only have one hard drive and only one partition on it use either a big enough memory stick or an external hard drive. And until you have exhausted your recovery attempts use the computer as little as possible since you do not want to overwrite the areas where this data was.

 

I hope your efforts are successful, but for the future remember - back up your data to external storage regularly.

I've used easeus data recovery. if you can already preview the files on the software, sure they can be recovered.

If the software cannot scan out, then there might be a problem.

You don't have to pay for recovery software, there are plenty of free alternatives.  Some that members report successfully  using:

 

Data Recovery Using Puppy Linux, Brooks - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/489067/dual-boot-system-bluescreens-1-of-my-startup-choices/

 

Partition Find and Mount — free partition recovery software - http://findandmount.com/

 

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download - http://www.piriform.com/recuva

 

I'm not slamming EaseUS (I like their programs) but I spend money only when necessary :).
