FoneDog Data Recovery

FoneDog Data Recovery 1.1

Recover lost data from computer and removable drives.

FoneDog Data Recovery is an application designed to help you recover lost data. Therefore, you have the ability to retrieve various types of files, including images, documents, e-mails, audio and video files. The tool supports recovering files from Trash, your computer, and removable drives.

The utility has an intuitive and quite attractive interface. All you need to do is select the categories of files you wish to retrieve and the drive you want to scan. You have the ability to choose between two scanning modes. The Quick Scan performs a fast and rather superficial search, while the Deep Scan mode initiates a thorough search and lasts longer. The scan process can be paused, stopped, or canceled at any moment, if desired. Once the scan is over, you can filter the results by creation or modification date, as well as by extension. However, this option would be more useful prior to enabling the scan operation. Thus, you will have the opportunity to narrow the search from the very beginning and the scan process will be shorter. Yet, the good thing is that you can preview the files before recovery them, so you know if they are worth saving or not.

In short, this application is an easy-to-use recovery tool that allows you to retrieve information you lost accidentally. The preview of the search results is a great asset.
