Data Recovery Wizard includes 4 Recovery Modes: Deleted File Recovery mode works with deleted files or the files emptied from Recycle bin and allows you to “undelete” them (another popular term is “unerase”). Intact file system is important for this mode. Complete Recovery mode is designed for data recovery from Hard Disk including formatted partition, crashed file system without drive letters. Partition Recovery mode is designed for recover data from Hard Disk including crashed file system, mistakenly deleted partitions, hidden partitions, drives with failed operating/file system, and drives suffered from virus. RAW Recovery mode: If the file system has been badly damaged and searching from FAT (File Allocation Table) or MFT (Master File Table) is of no use for data recovery, RAW recovery mode will easily handle this situation. When using RAW recovery, files will be detected by their headers taken from sectors of the disk. In some cases, Raw Recovery is the only method to recover needed file(s). However, it cannot recover files in original names, but content of the file can be recovered up to 100%. After you select Complete Recovery or Partition Recovery mode and enter the device/partition list, you can choose “Option” -> “RAW” to set the RAW recovery.
