Deep Scan does a comprehensive scan of the volume to recover every possible bit of lost or deleted data. It also searches for lost files on the basis of file signature. This recovery option recovers everything that is found in the selected source. This option is especially helpful in case of severely corrupted volume.

In case your desired files are not listed in the file list after the completion of scan process, you can opt for Deep Scan to perform a comprehensive scan of the selected drive.


Once the scan of selected hard drive volume is completed, choose Click Here option given at the bottom of the preview window to start the Deep Scan OR you can choose to run Deep Scan directly from the Select Location screen, as well.
