1, When installing the software, we strongly recommend you not to install the software on the disk where files get lost and you want to restore. Choose a different drive other than the file lost partition for installation. Any local/ removable drives are supported. We recommend you to install iCare Data Recovery Software on an external device.

2, If you have deleted a file, it’s very important you don’t save or download anything on to that drive/media. The more you save to it, the less chance you have of getting the deleted data back. Another concern is fragmented or partial data. If your drive is heavily fragmented (unoptimized), then you could recover only partial files which may or may not open in your software application. This is NOT a flaw with Total Recall DRS. Total Recall will recover only what’s there. There’s no magic software that will recreate missing parts of your files. We can’t guarantee that the program will recover you data and it will be usable. It will only recover what is available to be recovered. It’s not physically possible to recover anything more..
