Data Recovery

Recover from Computer

Recover Files from Windows Computer

ONERECOVERY may have updated its user interface, but the data recovery procedure remains unchanged. To retrieve data from a computer, adhere to the following three steps:

Select a location

Quick & deep scan

Preview & recover

Step 1

Select a Location

To retrieve lost data on a computer, one must first choose the location where the data got lost. When initiating the program, the primary interface will display "Hard Drives and Locations" on the left-hand side. To proceed, select a hard disk from the "Hard Disk Drives" section or Desktop from the "Quick Access" section.

Once you have selected the desired location, you can begin the scanning process.

step 2

Scan the Location

A deep scan will be automatically initiated by ONERECOVERY. Previous versions may have taken a few minutes, or even several hours, to finish scanning, particularly when sizable files were present. Fortunately, ONERECOVERY has successfully expedited the scanning process, significantly saving time in the recovery phase. Furthermore, real-time scanning results are visible on the interface, enabling you to preview your recoverable files at any moment.

During the scanning process, you have the option to either focus on specific files or halt the scan according to your preferences.

Locate Files During the Scanning

While scanning, you have the flexibility to toggle between various filtering options to pinpoint the desired files for recovery. The filtering options include "File Type," "Time," and "File Size, respectively.

Additionally, you can search for specific keywords directly in the upper-right box, and ONERECOVERY will identify all files correlated with those keywords.

File Type: Filter search results for specific file types, such as viewing all file types, multiple file types, or photographs solely.

Time: Use this to filter files by specific modification or creation dates. You can switch to display or hide system files.

File Size: View all files irrespective of their size or filter files of a certain size (such as 100-500 MB).

Pause or Stop the Scanning

You have the ability to halt or terminate the scanning process at any time, even if ONERECOVERY has begun scanning for your lost data in the selected location. By clicking on the pause button, you can temporarily suspend the scan, resulting in the "Scanning Paused" alert appearing on the progress bar. To resume the process, click the play button. If you've come across something essential during the scan, you can stop the process instantly by clicking the stop button.

step 3

Preview and Recover Files

ONERECOVERY lets you preview recoverable files before proceeding to the recovery stage. All users can preview files with no restrictions. You can select the desired files and use the "Recover" button to retrieve your files.

Preview Files after the Scanning

As an ONERECOVERY user, you can preview data by merely clicking on the file. Furthermore, when you click on a file, a preview window pops up. Additionally, certain details about the file, such as the file name, file size, file path, and modification date, are displayed. ONERECOVERY provides significant preview space for photos on its interface. Besides, it offers the option to view the photo on full screen. ONERECOVERY is capable of previewing almost all common types of files. This includes images, videos, audio files, Outlook emails, documents, and many others.

Recover Files from Windows Computer

After reviewing and confirming the files you wish to retrieve, you can recover them all easily using ONERECOVERY. Click the 'Recover' button to get your lost data back and specify a path to save the recovered files. Avoid saving the files to the hard disk where you lost or deleted the data.

Please note that these steps are designed to recover data from an internal hard drive of a Windows computer. If you need to recover data from the Recycle Bin, external devices, or a crashed computer, please read on.

Data Recovery

Recover from Emptied Recycle Bin

Recover Files from Emptied Recycle Bin

Whenever you delete files by selecting the "Delete" option, they end up in the Recycle Bin. The lost files may originate from various sources on your computer, including the internal hard drive, partitions, sectors, and external devices.

Scanning your entire computer to recover permanently deleted or emptied data from the Recycle Bin is not practical and results in lengthy scanning periods. Therefore, there are two scan modes for Recycle Bin Recovery that aid in saving scanning time: quick scan and deep scan. If the quick scan does not yield any results, you may use the deep scan mode to explore your lost data more profoundly.

Step 1

Select the Recycle Bin

To recover the Recycle Bin, recover emptied items, or retrieve permanently deleted files on your computer, select the Recycle Bin as the target location under 'Quick Access.'

step 2

Scan the Recycle Bin

As previously stated, there are two scan modes for scanning and recovering files from the Recycle Bin. You can categorize files by file type while scanning, and the process can be paused or stopped at any moment.

Quick Scan

A quick scan will automatically search for files in the Recycle Bin. Generally, the scan should suffice for lost data.

Deep Scan

If the quick scan does not retrieve the desired results, you can use the deep scan mode to recover additional lost data from the Recycle Bin.

During scanning, you can filter files by category on the left bar. Similarly, you can choose to pause or stop the scanning process at any time. Avoid closing the application during the scanning process to achieve better results. Once the scan is finished, you can preview your files.

step 3

Preview and Recover Your Data

Select a File or Files

You can filter files using 'List View,' 'Detail View,' or 'Icon View.' After configuring the filter, the program will load the search results that match your preferences. Then, you can choose the files you want to recover.

Preview Data

Before recovering your data, you can use the preview feature to ensure that the files you have selected are the ones you need. To do so, just double-click the file and click on the "Preview" button.

Recover and Save Files

Finally, select the files you want to recover and click the 'Recover' button to retrieve your data from the Recycle Bin. Avoid saving recovered data in the same location to avoid data overwriting.

Data Recovery

Recover from External Devices

Recover Data from External Devices

If you lose data from external devices on your Windows computer, ONERECOVERY can assist you in retrieving it. External devices can be anything from external hard drives, memory cards, SD cards, digital cameras, Drone cameras, USB flash drives to music players, sound recorders, and so on.

step1

Connect the External Device

Before starting ONERECOVERY, connect the external device to your computer, such as cameras, mobiles, USB flash drives, SD cards, etc. Ensure that it is recognized or detected by your computer.

step2

Select the External Device

To recover lost or deleted files from removable storage media, select the device as the target location. Afterward, press the "Start" button to proceed. Even if the device partition has been lost, ONERECOVERY can still recover the lost data.

step3

Scan the External Device

An all-around scan will be launched on the external storage media. Wait a few minutes to complete the scanning process. During the process, you can locate the targeted files and pause or stop the scan at any time.

step4

Preview and Recover Files

After scanning, preview the files with no limitations. You can preview all videos or documents from the scan results. To retrieve the files, select 'Recover' and save them in a safe location.

After recovering data, please save them to another location to avoid losing again or getting damaged. You can save your data to an external hard drive or removable device.

Photo/Video Recovery

Get Your Lost Or Deleted Photos/Videos Back Safely

“High Definition” videos are bigger in size than those general ones, they're usually saved in cameras and other storage devices in pieces. When you try to fix broken videos with regular recovery tools, you might get frustrated.

However, with the advanced recovering feature, ONERECOVERY's “Photos/Videos Recovery” function performs deep and quick scans to retrieve your lost photos /videos from all internal and external devices, including but not limited to SD cards, various camera brands like DJI, Canon, GoPro, and Sony, and other hard drive brands such as Seagate and more. It scans, collects, and matches video fragments automatically to make sure of restoring the whole video, efficiently and effectively recovering HD, Ultra HD, 4K, and 8K videos.

The steps of “Photo Recovery” and “Video Recovery” are the same, so let’s take “Video Recovery” as an example.

step 1

Click the “Photos/Videos Recovery” Button

Download ONERECOVERY and launch the program on your computer. Click the

"Photos/Videos Recovery"
button on the left side of the interface.

Here, you will find a list of external drives and hard drives. Choose the one you want to recover your lost or damaged videos from.

After selecting, you'll need to choose the file format (eg. mp4. mov. mpeg. mpg. and more) you want to get back.

Once you choose the formats, hit the "Start" button to proceed further.

Notes:

By default, ONERECOVERY will check for the first two formats, i.e., MP4 and MOV.

If you choose more file formats, it will take ONERECOVERY more time to scan the storage device.

step 2

Quick and Deep Scan Videos/Photos

ONERECOVERY will do both "Quick Scan" and "Deep Scan" at the same time after you press the "Start" button. The progress can be seen at the bottom of the window, as shown below.

Quick Scan checks all of your files, but it only shows source files, like video fragments. Deep Scan, on the other hand, takes longer because it has to look for different video pieces and match them up to ensure the whole video is recovered. Once you find what you want, you can stop the scanning process at any time before it's done.

Once the scanning is done, it's best to preview the videos first before you try to get them back. It makes sure that you will get back the things you need.

step 3

Preview and Recover Photos/Videos

In this step, you can see a preview of the recovered videos. Place your mouse over the video and click the "Preview" button. You can see the video that you want to get back.

Press the "Recover" button when you are sure you get the right video files during preview. If you do this, a new window will appear on your screen where you can choose where to save the recovered videos on your laptop or computer.

Notes:

You can preview unlimited photos and videos before you restore.

We recommend you choose a different location to save the recovered data on your device compared to where it was lost in case it gets lost again.
