Pros / It offers a version that installs the application on multiple computers.

Cons / It only offers email customer support.

 Verdict / While the options for contacting customer support are limited, DoYourData is the easiest disk recovery software to use among those we rated. It also offers excellent recovery rates, making it a good choice for inexperienced users needing to recover deleted files.

With nearly perfect data recovery rates and an extremely easy user interface for both scanning and recovery, DoYourData ranks among the best disk recovery systems. While its lack of network access and customer support contact options brought it to our fourth-place slot, it’s nonetheless an excellent program for small businesses and solopreneurs.

We tested against the two most common reasons for losing files: accidental deletion and disk reformatting, and for the most common file types – documents, images, audio and video. This hard drive recovery software recovered all the files every time except for audio and video files on a reformatted disk. There, however, it still managed to recover 91% of lost files.

It also excels in ease of use. It has a sleek, intuitive interface so that even first-time users can work the software with no problems. The Scan screen lets you select the drive or partition, then the type of files you need to recover. It lets you run a quick scan, which is usually all you need for recovering accidentally deleted files, but it also had a deeper scan option if you have lost data for more complex reasons, like reformatting or file damage. If it does not find the files you need in the quick recovery option, it automatically moves to a more advanced scan.

This hard drive recovery software displays the progress of a scan by displaying folders it finds. Plus, it allows you to pause the scan in case you need to walk away. Once the scan is done, you can see salvaged files in a file tree or organized by file type and format, similar to the way you can view files normally. You can save these results and elect to recover the files later. If you want to check files before retrieving them, you can use the Preview function.

This disk recovery software does not allow you to work through a network, so you cannot run disk recovery on another computer in your network. However, you can install the program on multiple computers if you have the Technician license. This version is also a good option for independent IT professionals: It's compatible with RAID server systems and comes with lifetime updates and technical support.

One issue with the tech support, however, is that you can only access it via email. However, the program is easy to use, and you can find the user guide on its website.

Summary

DoYourData is an excellent disk recovery system, especially for individuals who need an easy-to-use program that recovers deleted files like a champ. While even the Technician version will not work over a network, it does let you install the application on multiple computers, and it works with complex server systems.
