Disk Data Recovery – Help / Quick start

  1. Run the program:
    a) PC: Double-click the file ‘ddr.exe’ (NOTE: On some systems, it just shows ‘ddr’. That’s the executable to run)
    b) Mac: Double-click the file ‘ddr.app’ (NOTE for Mac OS X 10.8 or higher: right-click the app, and choose ‘Open’)

  2. On the page ‘Choose media type’, choose the type of media you are trying to recover. This step is only to help the program to optimize the next steps.ddr_quickstart3
  3. On the next page, choose the volume/disk you are trying to recover.
  4. On the next step, choose a recovery method. If one method does not work well, you can try other methods later. Experienced users can also enable/disable certain file systems for the scan, so that the scan will work faster.
  5. Finally, confirm your selected options to start the scan.
  6. Select the files (or complete folders) to recover and click on ‘Save’ to recover the selected files to another disk.
