This method helps you use WinfrGUI-APP to recover deleted files from a connected flash or external drive. The result from this recovery method is usually larger than the method above. The following steps will guide you:

  1. Locate WinfrGUI-APP on the computer and launch it.
    WinfrGUI Home screen

  3. Then, select the drive where you lost the files on the application.
  4. After that, open the Scanning modes drop-down menu and select one of the different recovery mode options available. They include:
    • Quick Scan: A mode that attempts to recover recently deleted files faster but may omit deeply buried files.
    • Deep Scan: A mode that conducts a more thorough scan with an increased chance of finding older deleted files but can take significantly longer.
      Select WinfrGUI-APP scanning mode before it begins to recover deleted files
  5. You may also select the drive to save the recovered file(s) using the Save to box.

I recommend that to minimize the risk of overwriting, stop using the drive where that contains the deleted files as much as possible. The chance of overwriting the deleted files and making them unrecoverable increases with the drive usage.

I recommend formatting a bad drive that cannot be recovered safely to avoid damaging files.
