Microsoft improves the Windows File Recovery Tool

Earlier, Microsoft officially developed a Windows File Recovery Tool for users to recover deleted data, but the tool is a command-line version and it is slightly troublesome for novice users.

After all, it is a little troublesome to type the code according to the help guide, but as a command-line tool without a user interface, it can only be operated through the command line.

In order to reduce the difficulty of use and make it easier for users to get started, Microsoft intends to improve the tool, although there is still no interface the difficulty of operation can be reduced.

Microsoft’s idea is to directly add regular mode and extensive mode so that users only need to enter a few commands to automatically perform scanning and recovery without complicated operations.

Microsoft will improve the Windows File Recovery Tool. The purpose of the improvement is to reduce the user’s difficulty and improve the performance of the software.

At present, Microsoft has provided some users with a new version of the test. This new test version can significantly improve execution efficiency and help users recover deleted files faster.

Among them, the regular mode mainly provides standard recovery options. When using this function, the recovery tool will automatically recover recently deleted files without performing extensive scanning.

The extensive mode will perform a deep scan of the disk to restore all cleared but recoverable files, so this mode will also consume more time.

Unlike mechanical hard drives, solid-state drives are generally not easy to recover data, especially the longer the deletion time, the lower the probability of solid-state drive file recovery.

Microsoft said that if users want to restore files that take longer, they use the wide mode, which is relatively more efficient than the regular mode.

Of course, data recovery depends largely on luck, because sometimes if the area where the file is located is overwritten, the probability of successful recovery is much lower.

In terms of hard disk format, it supports NTFS, FAT, exFAT, and ReFS file systems, and supports mechanical hard drives, solid-state drives, flash drives, U disks, and SD card devices.

In terms of file formats, the basic mainstream file formats can support multiple types including image, video, audio, PDF, compression, and office documents.
