One of the most tragic thing that could happen to a person is if the precious data in their computers get lost due to malfunction, accidental deletion, or viruses among others. However, people shouldn’t panic when this happens because there is now a lot of software that can recover data. DiskGenius Free is a free utility tool and data recovery software developed by Eassos. The question is, can DiskGenius Free offer enough to be able to stand out from the highly competitive market?

Features and Functions

DiskGenius Free has four main functions: Data Recovery, Partition Manager, Backup and Restore, and Disk Utilities. For Data Recovery, DiskGenius Free has a simple three-step process to recover data. All users have to do is select the partition that suffered data loss, scan for the lost data, preview the listed files, and choose recover. 

DiskGenius Free can also create, resize, format, and wipe partitions with its Partition Manager. In order to protect a users’ data, DiskGenius can also backup and restore your data through disk cloning or creating a compressed file. 

Finally, DiskGenius also has other features that are helpful for disk management. For example, DiskGenius also comes with a hex editor for viewing and editing binary content. Users can also check for bad sectors and 4k sector alignment.

Upgrades and Improvements

DiskGenius is an amazing product that has optimal recovery abilities and its greatness is due to its tendency to improve and upgrade itself. Its file recovery feature for EXT4, FAT32, and NTFS partitions are optimized to perform to the best of its abilities. Users can also rest assured that any operating system cloned from FAT16/FAT32 is able to boot properly. Additionally, DiskGenius also made sure that bugs such as missing recovered items and unstoppable progress bars are addressed and fixed.

Free vs Standard

DiskGenius Free is the free version of DiskGenius Standard. As such, while it does contain most of the crucial features of DiskGenius Standard, it is still a bit limited. Some of the missing features include not being able to format USB drives by batches, no support for Dynamic Disk, cannot clone disk by sector or file system layout, and permanent deletion of files among others. While these are helpful functions, it should be stated that not being able to use these features is not a dealbreaker against DiskGenius Free. It’s still a good program.

Good Despite Being Free

Despite the fact that DiskGenius Free is completely free, it’s still an amazing data recovery software. It’s simple, easy to use, and powerful. For people with a little bit of extra money, it might be a good idea to jump directly to DiskGenius Standard. However, people who can’t afford Standard shouldn’t be pressured to get it because Free still has the most important features that most people need DiskGenius for.
