Photo Recovery Genius is an application that enables users to recover data from RAW photos. In addition, it has the ability to restore photos and videos that may have been accidentally deleted. This application can recover photo and video files from different types of media storage devices, including hard drives and cameras. It can also work with portable storage devices such as memory cards, USB thumbdrives, and even other devices with photo and video storage capabilities such as media players and smartphones.
Knowledge in computer technology and data forensics is not required in using this application, as Photo Recovery Genius already comes with a step-by-step recovery wizard that can effectively guide users in the stages of the data recovery process. Once installed, users can simply click the Start button to launch the application’s program wizard. The instructions are easy to follow; users will just have to select the device (camera, thumbdrive, memory card, etc.) and the file types that must be recovered. The application will proceed to scan the specified device and come up with a list of the recoverable files. The application also provides thumbnail and full-size previews for easy viewing. Users can then select the files to be recovered and save these to the same device or to another location such as another folder in the hard drive or to an external storage medium.
