There are many reasons why you can loose your precious files, including your photos, videos, music, documents, etc. Those reasons may include disk formats, accidental emptying recycle bin, permanent file deletion and others. Fortunately, there are tools like Jihosoft File Recovery which offer you various practical methods to recover your lost files.

The main window of Jihosoft File Recovery presents you with two options to choose from: "Recover Lost Data" and "Create Image". Besides recovering your lost files, the program also allows you to extract an image from any of your partitions so that you can restore its files later very easily and quickly. Of course, this can be done in the "Create Image" section of the program. Extracting an image is a quite easy process - you just need to select your source partition and provide the image file name and location.

When it comes to recovering lost or deleted files, the right section to select is "Recover Lost Data". It allows you to select which partition or volume you want to scan for lost files, be it a hard disk partition, a pen drive, a SD memory or any other type of removable media. Alternatively, you can load a previously created image file to restore its files. Jihosoft File Recovery also offers you an advanced scan method which allows you to select what types of lost files to look for. You can select among more than 120 file types grouped into categories such as photo, audio, video, office, archive and others.

Finally, when the scanning process finishes, the program shows you a list of the lost or deleted files it could find, and allows you to preview any of them. Then you can select all of them or just individual ones, and recover them by simply clicking on a button. However, the recovery process is possible only when you have bought a license and registered the program, as the evaluation edition just lists the detected files.

To sum it all up, Jihosoft File Recovery is a powerful tool that can help you recover your lost files of virtually any type. Besides, you can also create images from your disks or volumes to prevent any disastrous data lost. The program is lightweight and easy to use, and you can use it to look for specific types of lost files.
