With demands for data recovery increasing largely, there are more and more data recovery programs. Nevertheless, most of them are just with a single function or few functions. To be specific, some are specially developed to recover deleted files and some to recover files from formatted device. Here, we will introduce the powerful Windows data recovery program MiniTool Power Data Recovery Personal, which integrates all-sided data recovery capabilities. Compared with the free edition which can only recover 1GB data, this license supports recovering unlimited files. Moreover, a boot disc is available, which recovers data when Windows OS cannot boot.
Functions Designed in Power Data Recovery Personal License
Launch this program and we can see its main interface where 5 data recovery modules queue, including “Undelete Recovery”, “Lost Partition Recovery”, “Damaged Partition Recovery”, “CD/DVD Recovery”, and “Digital Media Recovery”.
To recover shift-deleted files or files emptied from recycle bin, we can choose Undelete Recovery module.
To restore files from formatted device, RAW drive, inaccessible partition, or other logically damaged but existing drives, we need to choose Damaged Partition Recovery module. In our test, it not only recovered original files from formatted USB flash drive but recovered files we deleted several days ago.
To retrieve files when a certain partition has been deleted, we can select Lost Partition Recovery. For digital media files recovery only, like pictures, audio files, and video files, choose Digital Media Recovery. And for data recovery on CD or DVD, choosing CD/DVD Recovery module is a wise choice.
MiniTool Power Data Recovery Personal License Boot Disk
Power Data Recovery Personal License Boot Disk enjoys the same functions with the Windows edition. It is quite useful for users who are planning to recover lost files but Windows cannot boot, because it can start computer without OS. Nevertheless, users need to buy the very program and create Power Data Recovery Boot Disk via Bootable Media Builder (a boot disk creator) on another computer. Then, insert the boot CD to CD driver or connect USB flash drive boot disk with computer to start computer. After successful starting, the following interface will appear:
After getting this interface users can recover lost data according to actual demands. Note: the device that will save recovered files should be connected with the computer in advance.

Time-saving Features on Power Data Recovery Personal License
“Load Result”: this feature is designed in every module. As long as we have used a module to recover files, all scanning results will be saved automatically. By loading results, we can find needed but neglected data very easily.
“Advanced Filter”: it filters data by filename/extension, file size, creating time, and so on.
“File Preview”: it supports viewing data before recovery, but only txt and image files are available.
Windows OS Support
MiniTool Power Data Recovery Personal License can be compatible with Windows XP, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows 8/8.1 (from its official website), and we tested it on Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8. All worked well. Nevertheless, it does not support Windows Server. For server support, users have to purchase commercial license or more advanced licenses. Of course, Power Data Recovery Free Edition supports server, but it can only recover 1GB data.
After seeing the review, users would get a basic understanding of MiniTool Power Data Recovery Personal License now.
