Advanced Disk Recovery is a comprehensive file recovery utility that can restore lost or deleted data not only from the local hard disk, but also from external devices like removable USB Flash drives, and even from CDs and DVDs.

Similar to the majority of data recovery tools, Advanced Disk Recovery also offers two scanning modes: a quick one that uses the Master File Table to detect the recoverable files, and a slower yet more thorough one which is based on analyzing file signatures. Also similar to most other data recovery utilities is the fact that even the quick scan can take quite a while, especially if large media has to be scanned.

This powerful data recovery tool is capable of restoring any kind of files, including documents, music, videos, images, archives, and so on. Plenty of file filters are also available, helping you quickly locate the exact files that you need to recover. Using this tool is simple and easy, as its interface is straightforward, intuitive and self-explanatory. Even beginners can use it without any problem. Unfortunately, the trial version only allows previewing the recoverable files and not actually recovering any of them, but the price of the full, registered version is quite reasonable.

To sum it all up, Advanced Disk Recovery is a typical data recovery tool that neither impresses nor disappoints. It can represent a good choice if you need a tool to help you recover lost files, regardless of the reason why those files were lost in the first place: accidental deletion, system crashes, virus attacks, etc.
