DiskDigger is a free data recovery software turning out effectively recovering deleted or formatted files from any storage media connected to your computer, including all types of memory cards, USB drives and internal or external hard drives. The program thoroughly searches the file system for traces of files as well as deleted files and allows you to preview many of them as they are found. You can limit the search to certain file types and also specify the sector range of the disk to scan.

DiskDigger helps to handle data recovery cases if:

* you deleted one or more photos from a memory card by accident, and want them restored.
* you deleted one or more photos from a memory card on purpose, but now want them restored.
* you deleted some documents from your USB flash drive, and want to recover them.
* you came across an old hard drive of yours (or someone else’s) that’s been reformatted, and would like to see what its previous contents were.
* you’ve “securely wiped” your media, and want to make sure that your media has actually been wiped correctly.
* you’re just curious about what old deleted files are still present on your memory cards or hard drives.

DiskDigger has two modes of operation which you can select when scanning your media for deleted files:

Scan the file system for deleted files (dig deep).
This scans the file system that is present on your media, searching for deleted file entries. Supported file systems are FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, and NTFS.

The advantages of this are:
Very fast,Recovers all file types, Recovers file names,

And the disadvantages are:
Doesn’t support all possible file systems (see above for supported file systems)
Doesn’t scan entire disk (only scans what the file system is aware of)

Scan the disk surface for traces of lost files (dig deeper).
This thoroughly scans every sector of your media, searching for traces of known file types.

The advantages of this are:
* Scans entire disk
* Goes underneath the file system, therefore independent of file system

And the disadvantages are:
* Slower (sometimes much slower) than the first method
* Doesn’t recover file names or fragmented files
* Only supports certain file types
* Finds ‘existing’ files as well as deleted files
