Review : Systools Hard Drive Data Recovery for Windows

Data & Information are synonymous terms. In today’s world data is the most important factor for any individual or business. We carry out all essential data in Pen drivers, external hard drives etc. All this information flow requires a lot of read & write operations. The devices carrying the data do have a life expectancy period. Even, otherwise any data storage device could fail without any prior notice. But, the main question is that when your Data fails, do you have sufficient resources to recover it ? Does the software you are using supports the kind of device & file system your storage device has ? Recently, Systools contacted me to test one of their products SysTools Hard Drive Data Recovery Software for Windows .

  • My 500 GB external Hard Disk drive had Four Partitions.
  • The First Partition was completely formatted
  • The data on the Second Partition was deleted

    • After successful recovery, you can repartition your hard disk drive or just format it using any partitioning tool
