Toolwiz File Recovery is a simple software tool that provides users with a simple means of scanning the contents of their HDD and recovering files that were deleted from the Recycle Bin or by using the “Shift+Delete” keyboard shortcut.
The installation process you are required to go through runs quite smooth and it is over in a jiffy, yet if you are interested in bypassing it, you should know there is a portable edition you can use, namely Portable Toolwiz File Recovery. Once you complete it, you are greeted by a minimal and clean GUI, as it only contains a few buttons and a pane in which to list all detected items.
Types of files supported and other options
This application enables you to scan all your hard drive partitions, yet it does not support removable storage units which is a small setback. It can help you recover graphic, music and video files, as well as documents, HTMLs and other formats.
All detected items are going to be displayed in the main window as a list, along with name, modified and created time and size on disk. In addition to that, you should keep in mind that if certain files have been deleted a long time ago, they may not be recoverable as the data could have been overwritten.
Conclusion and performance
The scanning process is over in a timely manner and does not put a strain on the computer’s process and thus you can run it alongside other utilities without encountering problems. We did not detect any errors or bugs in our tests.
All in all, we can safely say Toolwiz File Recovery is a pretty efficient piece of software, yet its limited number of actions only meets the requirements of novice users.
