DiskDigger - free data recovery made easy |

First, go to the download page above and click to download the ZIP file

There is such "DiskDigger.exe" inside when unpacking, this is the main body. Just click to start.

Once started, various drives and memories are recognized automatically, so select the media containing the file you want to restore and click "Next". This time I tried using 512 MB of USB memory.

Select the restoration method. The upper one is a fast restore, and it searches entries of files deleted in FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS systems. Although it is possible to restore up to the file name at a very high speed, it does not scan the entire disk, so it happens that it will be missed. For now, select this fast recovery and click "Next".

I found 304 deleted files in an instant.

When you click on the file name like this, the preview is displayed on the right side, so you can immediately know which file to restore.

For each file you can also see more detailed information from the "File Information" tab

After selecting the file you want to restore, click "Restore selected file (s)" button

Select the place to save and click "OK" to complete

If you want to bypass the Windows system and scan the entire disk directly instead of fast recovery, select the option below then click "Next"

Please select the type of file you want to restore and click "Next".

By the way, from "Advanced settings" tab you can also set whether to skip bad sectors, which sectors to start scanning

It is like this while scanning, it takes a long time


Since I searched for images this time, restoring & saving is completed by clicking "Save Picture" after selecting a file.
