Retrieval of external hard drive data that got lost during file transfer to the computer is now extremely simple and secure with Recover External Drive software. This expert-designed application is driven by a powerful recovery engine that scans and extracts data from the external drive. It can also successfully retrieve the files from the external hard drive in the following data loss situations-

  • Unintentional deletion of the HD files
  • Accidental format of the external drive when connected to the system
  • Disk file system corruption due to improper ejection, virus infection, and bad sectors
  • External HD file system corruption

Lost data is not permanently wiped from the external HD!!!

The external drive files that got lost during file transfer, deleted or formatted does not imply that you have lost the data forever. Upon data deletion from the drive, the OS just marks the file as deleted and the particular sector where the file was kept as free to store new data, but the actual information kept in the deleted file continues to remain intact until it gets overwritten with new data. Thereby, until and unless the deleted or lost file is not overwritten with new data, you have fair chances of restoring the HDD files. The exceptional tools like Recover External Drive can help you to effortlessly get off data from the hard drives.
