HDD Mechanic Editor's Review

HDD Mechanic is the Windows tool for recovering data from damaged drives and partitions.

The first thing I noticed about the utility was that it appeared rather user friendly – as soon as I executed the application after a successful installation, I was displayed a friendly wizard screen to help me work my way through recovering my data. After this point, the process appeared very simple. Once I selected the drive or partition I wanted the software to scan, I had to simply select the type of file system. A brilliant thing about this software is that from the start, technical vocabulary is explained in simpler terms for home users. Each file system was designated an operating system too, so that less computer confident users can run and operate this software and successfully recover their files. Even without knowing what file system you have, or even know what a ‘file system’ is, chances are you will select the right option, if you know what operating system you are running.

From this point, the software immediately started scanning my disk for recoverable documents, music, pictures, emails and more. In terms of speed of scanning, it is much what I expected for a piece of recovery software – scanning speeds would be different from system to system, depending on your hardware and the size of the disk scanned.

Once the scan is completed, you are shown a ‘Finished the Recovery Wizard’ Screen, instructing you to click Finish to view your available recovered files. You are then presented with a familiar looking Windows Explorer style page where you can browse through all the lost and recoverable files the software has found. After selecting the file or folder you desire, it’s a case of clicking ‘Recover’ from the top of the window to start the recovery process – very straightforward.

I really liked and enjoyed using this software. Right from the start of the process, the installation was quick and not too large in size, and the software opened quickly. I liked the fact that you are greeted with a wizard (which is optional for advanced users) rather than just a file browser and a bunch of tools with no clue of how to proceed. Another fantastic feature for advanced users is the ability to scan Ext2/3 Linux partitions from inside Windows, making this software not only great for home users, but office users and IT technicians too!

One thing however which I would like to see would be a further continuation of the Wizard mode. After the scan completed, you are forced to use the file browser. If the wizard assisted in finding specific files or folders (e.g. a search box), this would make the process even easier. Aside from this, I would give this software 7/10 – it is easy and intuitive to use and is an easy competitor to other Data recovery solutions out there.
