FAQ about Data Recovery Software

1. How does CBL Data Recovery Software work?
CBL Data Recovery Software relies on the fact that deleted files are not actually erased by Windows. The files are only marked as deleted so that their disk space can be reused. Until another file uses that disk space (and writes different data there) the deleted information can potentially be recovered.

2. What types of files can CBL Data Recovery Software find?
Almost all file types can be recovered. These include pictures from most digital cameras, music files from MP3 players, documents from removable storage devices, and email.

3. Is it safe to run CBL Data Recovery Software on my affected hard drive?
You should not install CBL Data Recovery Software on the same disk where your lost files are located. Doing so may write over the very information you need to recover. Stop writing to any media (including hard drives) that may be involved in data loss. Running most software (for example, Internet Explorer) writes new data to your drive and may possibly overwrite the lost data you are seeking.

4. Can I recover my files from a system with a single hard drive?
You can, but it is not a good idea to save recovered files to the same disk. The recovery process works by making a COPY of the deleted data, which, again, may write over the very files you need to recover. You should recover the files to a second external hard drive or to a USB device.

5. Are there instances where lost data cannot be recovered?
There may be instances where data recovery will fail. If the drive is physically damaged, it may not be possible to recover the data. If the data has been overwritten by the operating system, data recovery will not be possible.
