It can only recover a specific number of files and data. The paid version of the software, known as iCare Data Recovery Pro is sold with different licenses to suffice the needs of different types of users.
Deep Scan Recovery
Recovery Pro software comes with a special deep recovery mode that can
search each and every possible file and folder on your hard disk to find
and recover the lost files. It makes use of the raw mode for better
scanning of deep ends of the digital media. The software is even capable
of scanning for a file with its old file name or based on its folder
Once it finds the file, it can easily recover and restore it in the previous form. Users are given the option to recover the complete folder, drive or just a specific file.
Read-Only Scan Mode
The read-only scan mode available with this software lets it scan the affected drive only in read-only mode, such that it does not create or write any new data to the lost drive data during the scan. This avoids the chance of getting the original data overwritten or replaced by any new data. Users are advised to install and use the iCare Data Recovery software on a separate drive from the one where the data lost.
Note: After the recovery of a file, make sure to save it to a new folder or drive, rather than the
same one from where it has been recovered.
The Recovery Process
The installation and recovery process of iCare Data Recovery Pro is very simple. Users first need to download the software from the website. Once downloaded, the software can be easily installed by following the simple steps. After the installation, users will have to open the recovery wizard. There you will find 3 scan modes, Deleted file recovery, Deep scan recovery, and Lost partition recovery.
Choose an option that best fits your data recovery needs. Deep scan recovery is, though, the most favorable option among the three. Once you select an option, the software starts scanning the specified drive or folder. It then brings back a list of files and folders that were all found on the lost drive. Choose the one/s you need recovered and proceed with next step. Save the file in a different folder from the one you recovered it from.
