Handy Recovery is a direct data-rescue solution, that can help to get back files accidentally deleted from hard disks or removable devices. It offers extended support for most storage systems, including FAT12/16/32, NTFS, HFS/HFS+, CompactFlash, SmartMedia, MultiMedia and Secure Digital cards.
In addition, users can apply Handy Recovery to rescue data from other media devices, such as USB devices and memory-cards.
The interface looks traditional; it is an utility designed for technicians or intermediate users; in fact, its functions in the wrong hands could cause system damage. The main window, is divided into three panels. On the left is placed a tree view, which display the current folder structure. On the right is located the detail view, that displays the folder content previously selected in the tree view. Finally, at the bottom is placed the file-preview frame, to test the file content before recovering it.
The provided documentation, is another important feature; it covers the program's functions in deep, allowing to understand the software features.
The installation process; is an important aspect to be considered during our evaluation test; in fact, the entire deployment of Handy Recovery is conducted by an installation wizard, which only ask for a few choices with the corresponding default value. We were using the standard parameters to set up a common environment. The program was showing us a clear and fast deployment procedure, that it doesn't require set up the target system or additional drivers.
The operation is quite simple, once the program is started; it asks for a source partition to scan; this process can take a few minutes, depending on the partition size, data amount and computer resources.
Once the scanning process is completed, the program shows the recoverable files along with its fixing probability, in a list. At this stage, it is possible to pick up one of them, previewing its content on the preview-panel, and then decide to recover or not.
Finally, we recommend this software, as a powerful utility, designed for intermediate or expert users. The program performs the recovery functions in an effective way, in some cases it can be a bit slow.
