Step 1: Open the software to select the format of lost data
When you open UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free, you can see the data format selection interface.
There are two lines of icons representing the file format in the interface. Please look carefully. What you need to do at this time is to select the data format representing the files lost in your computer. Please check the first and second icon from the left of first line , and the second icon from the left of the second line.
When the check is completed, a small circle with a check will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the "Next" button on the right, as shown in the figure below.
Step 2: Select the disk where the lost data was originally located
All the disks are listed in the interface at this time. Next, all you need to do is to select the disk where the data you lost was originally located.
If the important files you lost are stored on the F disk, then select your F disk. After selecting, a small circle with a check mark will appear at the right end of the disk name row. At this time, please click the "Scan" button on the top right, and then you will have a comprehensive scan of your F disk, as shown in the figure below.
Intermediate step: Scan your disk
The scanning process takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the files stored on your disk. If the type of files stored on your disk is complex and the capacity is large, the scanning time will be long, and vice versa, as shown in the figure below.
Normally, if you have about 5 GB files in various formats on your F disk, the whole process of disk scan may last for several minutes. Please wait patiently.
UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free offers you two ways to scan. One is the fast scan that is just done. The advantage is that it is fast and saves time, but some deep files may not be scanned out.
But you don't need to worry about your deep files. There's also a deep scan that will help you solve the problem of not retrieving files, but it takes a little longer. We'll give you a detailed introduction in the next step.
Step 3: Select the file you lost to restore
After the scan is completed, all the files will be listed in the left column of the interface on your disk. You can browse them.
All you need to do then is to browse rank by rank to find the missing file and select it. Then click on the "Recovery" button in the upper right corner, as shown in the figure below.
If you can't find the missing file through the fast scan, please find the "deep scan" button in the yellow font at the top of the interface and click on it. Then UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free will scan the files on the disk for you more deeply. Please wait patiently again, as shown in the figure below.
After the deep scan is completed, find the missing file to select and click the "Restore" button. Then your missing file can be restored, as shown in the figure below.
For complex types of documents, it is recommended that you first do a fast scan and then a deep scan to achieve the best effect.
Tip: In order to prevent data from being permanently damaged or lost due to data overwriting, it is not recommended to set the recovery path to the original disk where the restored data is located. For example, the restored file was lost on the F disk, and the recovery path should not be set to the F disk. It can be set to other disks for recovery and then imported into the original disk.
