When to Use Data Recovery Software:

Data loss can occur from either mechanical/physical damage to the hardware or logical damage to the files, software or internal formatting.

Data loss resulting from a logical failure can include things like accidentally deleted data, formatted disks, problems caused by viruses or software and operating system errors. EasyRecovery data recovery software is designed for these kinds of logistical issues can be used on hard drives, iPads, iPods, mobile phones, external hard drives, USB sticks and laptops to recover important files including files and documents, databases, emails, photos, music and video files.

For a more comprehensive list of logical problems suitable for EasyRecovery data recovery software, visit our EasyRecovery FAQ page or contact Kroll Ontrack on 0508 872 259.

Mechanical and physical damage refers to problems with the hardware, such as water, heat or fire damage, damaged caused by dropping or crushing the device and any strange noises being emitted by the drive/device such as scraping/scratching sounds.

Data loss caused by physical and mechanical hard drive damage cannot be fixed with software; for these kinds of problems, we recommend our Data Recovery Services.

If you are uncertain whether your problem is logistical or physical and whether to use data recovery software or services, please contact Kroll Ontrack Data Recovery on 0508 872 259.


Ontrack EasyRecovery Features:

Recover data from local/external hard drives (HDD/SSD), optical and digital media, iPods,tablet devices and mobile phones that work as a removable storage and disk image files. With Ontrack EasyRecovery, you can get back your important files, e-mails, documents, databases, photos, music and video files.
Ontrack EasyRecovery has the ability to scan all volumes in a local machine and build a directory tree of lost and deleted files. Users can search lost and deleted files matching file name criteria, and the fast scanning engine allows the file list to be built quickly with an intuitive file manager and typical Save File dialog.

The majority of recovered files have the ability to be previewed, and all recovery operations are secure as Ontrack EasyRecovery does not write recovered data onto the drive it is scanning. As a target for your recovered data, users can select any drive, including network drives and removable media. The standard write system API minimizes the chance of disk corruption, and there is no limitation to file and drive size.

  • Mail Recovery allows the user to view the selected e-mail database. Show both existing and deleted e-mails for printing or saving to hard disk.
  • Hex Viewer – view the selected disk in a hex editor and search manually for data. Choose this option to view the selected disk contents by the help of a hex viewer. It allows you to search the disk by hex patterns.
  • SMART – Gives the user a graphical representation of the selected disk, including bad blocks, used blocks, free blocks. Displays the hard disk S.M.A.R.T. attributes which allows the user to monitor the drive parameters such as disk temperature, power-on hours, error rates, etc. This allows the user to monitor the health of the storage system and any pending failures.

  • Refresh Disk is used for archive media to rewrite and verify data blocks. Hard disk drives are designed to be used regularly, not stored on a shelf for months or years. The magnetic strength of the digital bits recorded on a drive slowly decays when that drive is disconnected from a computer. After many months, this effect can cause data files to fade, sometimes becoming unreadable.
