Scanning options

DiskDigger is a lightweight file recovery utility, capable of undeleting files from most forms of media your computer can read, such as hard and floppy disks, optical discs, USB flash drives and memory cards.

DiskDigger makes its first step easier by helping you select the source of files to recover, which could take minutes or hours depending on their size and storage capabilities. Once this step has been taken, two scanning modes — Quick and Deep — offer alternative approaches depending on which types of files they search for.

Deep scanning looks for deleted files while Quick scan only searches existing file systems. After each scan, the program displays a list of found files divided by file type with various tabs for easy browsing. You can select list, thumbnail view or expanded view depending on your preference – in our tests it took approximately two hours to scan a 120GB SATA hard disk although for smaller media this process may be much quicker.

DiskDigger can recover data from RAID arrays, though only in its Pro version. Unfortunately, however, it does not support recovering from BitLocker-encrypted drives or partitions – this being somewhat disappointing.

DiskDigger stands out as being rather basic in comparison with similar recovery tools on the market today, in that its primary function is so limited. Most recovery tools now include additional features that add value and give users another reason to choose them over others; however, because DiskDigger is run by one individual alone it prefers keeping things straightforward; though it does boast extra capabilities such as saving and loading scan sessions as well as file searching capability but these don’t compare directly.
