Data Recovery Pro by ParetoLogic – Software Review

sensorstechforum-data-recovery-proCreated by ParetoLogic, a company that is in the Microsoft partner program, Data Recovery Pro is a simply made program which is light, designed to restore deleted files as well as previous versions of such. The program has several customizable features and can go through deleted emails (for Microsoft Outlook users) and connected drives. But can it really do the job for you? Let’s see.

ParetoLogic Data Recovery Pro – Main Features

The software is only around 5 MB in size and installed quickly:

In comparison with competitive tools, the program has quite the number of preferences you can tamper with. For starters, the software has three main types of scanning:

When you go over to the “Guided Scan” option, you will notice that you have the ability to go through deleted emails (in case you are using Microsoft Outlook), go through removable drives and choose to recover specifically selected files from your hard drive.

What about the RAM and CPU’s resources? The program engages little resources while idle. However, while it was working it turned out to be quite demanding, taking up to around 32% from the CPU’s power:

The program provides the user with many customizable features. As visible below, users can even choose from variety of scanning preferences in the program’s settings:

You have an option to look for specific file types, as seen below. For example, if you select for the software to scan for Images only, it will associate all of the image file extensions (.jpg, bmp, png, etc.).

What about its data recovery capabilities? The program is good, but even the best recovery software cannot recover files you deleted a year ago. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • When did you delete the file?
  • Have you formatted your hard drive?
  • What is the file’s size? (bigger files are more difficult to be fully recovered)

What We Like

  • Preferences to scan for various file formats.
  • Settings to configure email scan, external drive scan and full scan options.
  • Light in terms of size.
  • Stable.

What Is Missing

  • Slow scanning times.
  • A bit heavy on the CPU while scanning for files to recover. (Full Scan for every file type)
  • Lack of choice for exact file extensions to look for in Full Scan.

Conclusion

Data Recovery Pro is definitely among the best programs for file restoration. It is a good solution when your computer has been hit by malware that either deletes or encrypts your important files. As long as you haven’t formatted your hard drive, you have a pretty decent chance in restoring your important documents, photos, programs.
