Reviews for HDD Mechanic
I’ve used for testing was very successful in the past HDDs
It is very good.
Data loss is a nightmare. So many important files lost, so many setbacks, so much depression. Whether it is on my backup flash cards or my HDD, finding reliable software that will help me salvage files and folders from damaged, formatted or healthy storage devices is a blessing. With HDD Mechanic, you cannot only salvage lost data but also regain access to damaged partitions by repairing partition tables, boot records and file system vital data.
HDD Mechanic is compact and light. This means that you can run it on virtually any machine without having to worry about your processor or RAM. The installation is quick, something you will find rewarding if you are eager to see how good the tool is at retrieving your damaged data.
A setup wizard
If you are new to data recovery, you will find the setup wizard quite helpful. This will pop up the moment you launch HDD Mechanic for the first time. This wizard lets you select the disk you want to recover. You have the option of recovering a single partition, an entire hard drive or focusing on removable flash devices.
HDD mechanic understands that different file systems work differently hence it forces you to choose the file system used in the damaged or deleted files. This could be NTFS, FAT or Ext. An alternative fast recovery method lets you launch a simple scan on lightly damaged disks. Simple scans end fast and will only recover superficially damaged data that hasn’t been overwritten. Full recovery is convenient for an all-round dig.
Since HDD mechanic lists all your hard drives in its simple yet powerful interface, you can always click on a virtual drive or a physical drive to launch the all powerful recovery wizard. If you don’t want to launch it this way, there always is a wizard button at the very top.
HDD Mechanic is all sufficient. It lets you access all the hard drives, both physical and logical, without necessarily having to launch your partition manager. This makes it a comprehensive tool to users who haven’t mastered partition management
Support removable devices
Removable devices are prone to data loss or damage. With HDDs comprehensive support for removable devices, anyone can keep in control of their data – even when they just decided that they do not need it anymore and later change their mind.
Sometimes, you might want to set a .img or disc image right. The HDD Mechanic is the perfect tool for this.
No file (folder) recovery
Sometimes, you might have a perfect idea of what folder that contained your data. Even though folders are just but logical containers, a good data recovery tool should always let you recover what was in a specific folder. This is fast and more convenient.
No file-type filter
What if I am just interested in .docx, and no videos? Do I have to waste resources sampling thousands of .AVI or .FLV files? I don’t think so. HDD Mechanics thinks I should, that’s why they can’t let me specify the file type I am interested in.
