iBoysoft Data Recovery Review
The straightforward interface is one of the best things i loved about this tool; you just launch the software and start recovering immediately, no long processes. Also, the scanning speed is quite impressive; it runs pretty fast. Even when I activated the deep scan option, it still performed at a really good and considerable speed.
Honestly, this data recovery tool is fast and simple. There are no much features added to this tool which is unlike the MiniTool Data Recovery I reviewed some time ago. iBoysoft Data Recovery for Windows is just a data recovery wizard with no added function/feature. While it is good for a software to serve for more than one purpose, the straight-forwardness of this utility tool might be what some people would love very much. iBoysoft also has some other good softwares you may like to explore.
How to recover lost files using the iBoysoft Data Recovery Software
Like i said earlier, there are no many processes required to get back your lost files with this freemium data recovery software. In just a few steps, you’ll be face to face with your lost files.
Before I go on to discuss the steps, you’d have to download this software and install it on your PC; that’s the first step to take. To download the iBoysoft Data Recovery software, click HERE or copy this link to your browser address bar – https://iboysoft.com/download/iboysoftdatarecovery.exe.
After downloading the software file (.exe file), launch it and follow the on-screen prompts to install it properly on your computer system. Now, you can follow the guide below to recover your lost files.
First Step: Launch the software
Launch the software after installation You’ll be instantly greeted by the available partitions and hard drives on your computer system at that moment. If you are trying to recover lost files from an external storage, ensure the storage is connected to your PC. All the drives and partitions available.present on your PC will appear on this software window. Here is where you will begin your recovery task.
Second Step: Select the affect drive or partition
Now, double-click on the drive/partition where the lost files were previously saved to. This will launch a quick scan on the drive and present you with all the lost files, documents, data, etc from the selected storage drive. The quick scan process is quite fast, even the deep scan scans pretty faster than i expected.
Third Step: Select the lost file and recover it
At this moment, after the scan, you’re now face-to-face with the lost files. Maybe i should tell you another interesting feature of this software, remember i mentioned one up there? Here’s another great feature i love so much – you can actually separate the lost/deleted files from the existing files or data. So you can easily spot the exact data, file or document you are looking out for. Check the screenshot above.
After separating between the existing files and the lost ones, you can now locate the folder where the lost file had been and then get back your file. Alternatively, you can choose to recover the whole folder or even the whole lost files by ticking the check boxes beside each file tree. For individual file recovery, tick the checkbox beside the file/document you are to recover. Check the image below.
Fourth Step: click on recover!
Finally, after selecting the files or folders you wish to get back on your PC, click on the “Recover” button at the bottom area of the software window. A dialogue box will appear, prompting you to select a new storage location for the files. Pick any storage location of your choice and then hit the “OK” button.
Note: for some certain reasons, we advise you select a totally new storage drive for the files instead of the previous. However, iBoysoft data recovery wizard will not save the file(s) to the previous drive; you must choose a new one.
Definitely, there is nothing more left to do! just sit back and watch your files being saved back on your PC. The recovery process is also as fast as the scanning process. Everything happening inside tool acts very fast and i love that.

This software is made for everyone irrespective of their PC OS; whether it is MAC or Windows, there are dedicated versions available for both platforms. The one reviewed in this article is the Windows Pro version. You can choose to download the trial version which is actually free, but that’s if you’ll be recovering files less than 1GB.
