i. If the software couldn’t find the partitions in Quick Scan, it will automatically turn into Deep Scan, which may take a while. Wait until the process is done.

j. Once done, results will display on the screen. You can select the data and follow Recover > Browse to choose the desired location to save the data.

k. Finally, Click Start-Saving to store the retrieved data. (See Image 5)

Note: Don’t store the recovered files, folders, and other data to the same drive/location, from where you lost it, to prevent data overwriting. Instead, use external storage drives such as HDDs, SSDs, USBs, etc.
