Handy Recovery 5.0Description

Handy Recovery is a data recovery software solution that can help you get back accidentally removed files from all types of disks, be they fixed or removable.
The application supports most file systems, including FAT 12/16/32/64(ExFAT), NTFS/NTFS 5 + EFS and HFS/HFS+, while providing a well thought out GUI to interact with its users.
Handy Recovery asks you from the very beginning to choose the partition you wish to scan for recoverable files, a process that usually takes just a few seconds, with a moderate CPU usage experienced during our testing.
Once the analyzing process comes to an end, Handy Recovery launches a multi-panel interface to show the disk content and to let you pick the files you want to recover. It shows the size and type of each file, as well as creation date and recovery probability.
It’s also worth mentioning that Handy Recovery supports compressed NTFS disks and images too and can even save and restore the recovery session. The application also comprises a preview window to access the content of the file to be recovered, as well as a disk information tool to see more details of the target drive.
While it’s pretty clear that Handy Recovery is more likely to be used by advanced users, a help section is also available, comprising not only a comprehensive manual to explain every single built-in feature, but also tips to better understand the purpose of specific tools.
The recovery engine does seem efficient, but it needs a lot of time to complete a task. An MP3 file for example with an “average” recovery probability was recovered in about 20 minutes, with a moderate CPU usage during this time.
Overall, Handy Recovery is a handy data recovery product that’s not only feature-rich, but also very effective. Truth is, a lot of time is needed to successfully recover large files, but at least it can help you in many critical moments.
