Free Data Recovery Software – Disk Digger
Disk Digger, Another free data recovery software that allow you recovers deleted files from any media, including USB flash drives, SD / CompactFlash / Memory Stick (etc) memory cards and hard disks. It supports many types of files recovery such as images (JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF and GIF), documents (DOC and PDF), and multimedia files (MPG, MP3, WMV, MOV and more) and many other data formats.
The best advantages of DiskDigger is allowing you scan reformatted or badly formatted disks (disks to which Windows can’t assign a drive letter), and even disks with bad sectors for the undeleted files. Meanwhile, you can simply search for deleted files by either simply scanning for deleted entries in the directory, or by actually going through the entire hard disk to look for traces of that particular file type.
On the DiskDigger interfaces, the preview pane supports most image types and some documents, and you can choose to recover a portion of files DiskDigger finds. Beside that, this free data recovery software support recovery data progress on FAT12 (floppy disks), FAT16 (older memory cards), FAT32 (newer memory cards and hard disks), NTFS (newer hard disks), and exFAT (Microsoft’s new successor to FAT32) file format.
In addition, DiskDigger also can run as portable data recovery software. The entire program is a single executable file that you can run from anywhere. There’s nothing to “install,” and the program doesn’t leave any trace of having been run.
However, the full scanning process for data recovery is slightly slower than Recuva. But it still remains a good alternative data recovery software to recover undeleted file from any media.
