Choose the file type you want to recover.
Click the "Next" button on the starting interface of Wizard Mode and answer the first easy choice question: What type of files do you want to recover?
This data rescue software supports retrieve all kinds of files: image files (like photos and graphics), audio files (as MP3, AAC music), videos (from video cameras, camcorders, etc.), documents (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF files) and emails (of Outlook or Outlook Express).
Just choose the file type that you want to restore. If you want to recover various file types, choose the option "All File Types".
Specify the location of your lost data.
In this step, you can tell the program where the data is lost. If you know exactly where the lost files are, click "Browse" to specify the location.
Choose "External removable device" if you want to retrieve deleted files from external storage media like digital camera, camcorder, tablet PC, mobile phone, MP3 player, USB drive, Flash drive, memory card, etc.
Choose "Recycle Bin" to scan deleted files from Recycle Bin. Choose "Desktop and My Documents " if you have deleted the files from your Desktop, My Documents folder or Libraries.

Preview and recover lost data.
If you have chosen "All File Types" in step 1, the files scanned out will be displayed by file types under the "File Type" tab. It is easy for you to preview the found files and select your wanted ones quickly with the preview feature. Documents like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, Web pages files, photos and RAR, ZIP archives can be previewed before recovery.
By switching to "Path", you can selectively recover data of certain paths.
In addition, if you want to find the files quickly, you can search file name or path in the filter bar. "Save Scan" if you want to recover later.
IMPORTANT: Do not save the scanned files to the location where you lost your files to avoid being overwritten.

If previous scans cannot find your lost files, you can use Raw File Recovery. However, this recovery way will not display the file name and path.
Highlight the partition with lost files, and choose to scan all files or only deleted files. Then, click "Start" to move the step 4 in Wizard Mode.
"Resume Recovery" allows you to import previous scan results into the data recovery software to continue the unfinished recovery session.
