Information and data are important not just because of what they can do, but also because of how easily it can be misplaced and lost, and this applies to digital data as well.

Photos, videos, documents and program files can be easily lost due to a variety of factors, including accidental deletions, system crashes, malware, full system resets, and more.

However, whatever you lost can still be found as long as you have the right tools for the job, and we will be looking over one such tool in today’s review, and it is called Wondershare Recoverit.

We will be looking over its features, what it can do, how well it can do its job, its price plans, and overall whether it is worth the investment or not in the long run, so continue reading below.

What is Recoverit?

Wondershare Recoverit is a simple data recovery tool that helps users recover their lost data from a wide variety of supported media, bringing it back in pristine condition to be used again.

The UI is made to be as simplistic as possible, to the point that all you need to know is how to read the interface’s text, and you’re pretty much 90 prepared to fully use the tool.

What are Recoverit’s system requirements?

Unlike resource intensive tools such as image or video editors that need monster PCs to run smoothly, Recoverit and other similar tools have minimal to non-existent system requirements, since they’re purpose is to be readily available to as many users as possible.

To that end, here’s what your PC needs in order to run Recoverit properly:

  • Operating System: Windows 10/ 8.1/ 8/ 7/ Vista/ XP and Mac
  • Storage: ~350 MB of hard disk space to store Recoverit
  • Others: 
    • Enough reserved space to store all recovered data
    • Internet connection to download and update Recoverit

How do I use Recoverit?

As previously stated, using Recoverit is extremely easy, with more time needed for the program to scan your system for lost data than actual time spent doing anything.

On that note, here’s how you can use Recoverit to restore any lost data:

  1. Download Recoverit
  2. Log into your Wondershare ID
  3. Select your location to start recovering files
  4. Press Start
  5. Wait for Recoverit to scan your PC for lost information
  6. Select Recover
  7. Browser for a location on your PC to store the recovered data
  8. Save the recovered data

What type of data can Recoverit bring back?

One of the biggest plies a data recovery tool can have is being able to recover information from all kinds of media, and Recoverit showcases that from the moment you launch it.

You will be greeted by a intuitive UI that tell you exactly what kinds of media you can recover your data from, namely:

  1. Hard disk drives
  2. External devices
  3. Select locations:
    • Recycle Bin
    • Desktop
    • Select folders
  4. Advanced Recovery:
    • Recover from Crash Computer
    • Video Repair
    • Advanced Video recovery

As for how long it takes for Recoverit to bring back the files, it all depends on how big the media is, and how much data there is to recover.

For example, during our tests we tried recovering the data from the PC’s Recycle Bin, and it only took about 2 minutes.

On the other hand, we also made Recoverit scan an external 2 TB hard drive, and that took almost 13 minutes.

We strongly believe that any type of software, be it a data recovery tool, video player or photo editor needs to meet 2 criteria in order to be considered good:

  • It needs to be easy-to-use by users of all levels, or at least have an acceptable learning curve.
  • It needs to be efficient at what it does

On that note, Wondershare Recoverit meets both criteria without any drawbacks, and we wholeheartedly recommend that you try it as soon as possible, especially since you can download it for free and test it out.
