Tips --> About "Scan all sectors"

If your files was just deleted, select "Recover deleted files" on the dialog box. If the file system of the partition is FAT32, you can also check the "Scan all sectors" option at the same time.

Due to the characteristics of the FAT32 file system some deleted files can not be found without "Scan all sectors". "Scan all sectors" will take longer time, it is recommended that you search the files without "Scan all sectors" option at first. If the files you want can not be found, then enable the "Scan all sectors" option and try again. Click "Start" button to start the deleted file recovery process.
