Comparison Results

As far as the efficiency of these two recovery tools is concerned, it can be assessed only by installing and running them on the same drive and scanning the same folder to see how much deleted or lost data they recover. Well, do not worry. Our team has done that for you. We used both tools to scan the Document folder on C: drive. Here’s what we found when comparing Recuva vs. EaseUS.


Recuva guides you through the process of selecting data type and location to recover deleted files. However, although the app detected the lost or deleted files, there were only a few files and some are not recoverable.

EaseUS only asks you to select a drive or folder to recover deleted files from. It will scan and detect all types of lost data and existing data. Fortunately, unlike Recuva, the app turned out to be much more efficient. 1798 deleted files and 99999+ files that lost their original names were found after the scanning. However, you may need some time to find the files you want. You can use the filter and the search feature to help you find the files faster.
