We decided to lớn take the software through its paces lớn see whether it lives up to the company’s claims.

Data Rescue PC3 in Action
Data Rescue PC3 is a relatively small software tệp tin — about 7MB. Once installed, launching the software brings up a wizard by default. This is where you select the “source” volume or drive sầu letter you want to lớn scan for data recovery.
Upon completion of its analysis — more on the scanning process shortly, Data Rescue PC3 presents all detected files File-Explorer style. Disk drives with multiple partitions bring up a prompt for you khổng lồ select the partition khổng lồ browse; you can change this from the Menu bar under Options > Select Partition.
We really lượt thích that Data Rescue PC3 neatly sorts detected files inlớn categories such as Archives, Pictures, Documents, Multitruyền thông and Others. These categories break down further into lớn subfolders where it makes sense. For example, the Pictures thư mục contains subfolders for different image tệp tin types: BMPhường., PNG, JPEG, etc.
Ultimately, this structure makes it very easy to find a tệp tin you want lớn recover. And if that’s not adequate, advanced search & filtering options can help you find files by either their filename or parts of a filename.
Another useful feature: you can save sầu the results of a particular scan. This makes it possible lớn exit the software, or scan another drive, and then jump baông xã in where you left off without enduring another lengthy scan.
Right-clicking on each tệp tin brings up a thực đơn where you can then choose to either view it, get more information, or select it for a batch restore. In addition, a color-coded tệp tin indicator on the right offers an overview of the likelihood of tệp tin corruption. In our case, the software actually detected the factory reinstallation files while scanning the internal HDD of a Sony VAIO máy tính xách tay.
Keep in mind that scan times vary greatly depending on the connection tốc độ và capathành phố of the selected drive. An SSD-based external disk drive sầu connected via USB 3.0 took about 40 minutes khổng lồ scan, but took 2 hours when we connected the same drive using USB 2.0. A much smaller 16GB memory card took about 22 minutes.
Remember, this process takes time, and you need to allow enough of it for the scan to lớn complete; don’t expect instant miracles.
