Sometimes it doesn't recover much. Is there a better software that someone can recommend please?

Thank you,

This is one of those questions where everybody has a personal preference.

I recommend R-Studio, and I used it myself once for a major data recovery.  Now I keep triple backups.

R-Studio is also a bit expensive, but the demo version is free and it will report on what it thinks is recoverable and what is not.  "Expensive" of course is a variable term; $100 is expensive when the dog's puppy pictures disappear, but when the payroll files go missing it is not.

I recommend GetDataBack  https://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm (I do own it)  Like RStudio free to try.  Pay for full functionality.

Note that both GetDataBack and RStudio are both highly rated.  You won't go wrong with either.  But do try both first.

I recently needed to recover data from a fault HDD. I downloaded many trials. The only one which worked for me was EaseUS Data Recovery. I purchased the product and it recovered everything I needed.
