    Naming options

    Use original file names
    Names of detected files will be preserved only if no file with that name exists in the destination directory.
    Rename files
    All files will be renamed by their given specified file root name and added enumeration ID. The file's extension remains intact.

    Existing files conflict resolution

    Unique file name
    If a file with the same name exists in the destination folder, files with a unique name will be generated to avoid overwriting.
    Ask before overwrite
    If a file with a certain name already exists in the destination folder, the application will ask the user what action to take.
    Overwrite without prompt
    All files will be overwritten in the event they already exist in the destination folder.
    Skip existing files
    If file with the same name exists in the destination folder, the recovery of a new file will be skipped.

    Additional Options

    Create Folder Structures
    When this option is selected, files will be recovered with their original folder structures e.g. the original folder hierarchy as it was on the source storage device. In case the files were organized in groups (by date, file extensions, or an associated application), then such groupings will be created by the folder structure in the location where the files will be recovered to.
    Recover Name Streams
    With this option on, files will be recovered with their original named streams.

    Verify default recovery options and click Next to continue.

  6. Confirm Recovery

    Review recovery options, destination path etc. and click Recover to start recovering files.

  7. Complete wizard

    Click to close the Wizard. After the recovery wizard has completed, you can open the destination folder to which the files were recovered. Use the default OS File Explorer or repeat the wizard again to scan another logical drive.

    All scan results will remain available after the wizard closes.
