This software utility supports FAT, NTFS and EXT file systems, and displays all detected drives in the main window, along with information regarding them, such as total size (expressed in bytes), and number of containing files, as well as number of deleted files found.
Results are going to be displayed in a different pane, along with details such as file name, extension, size, and modified and created date. It is possible to select all the deleted items or manually select only the ones that interest you, and save them to a custom location on the hard drive.

Nonetheless, you should know recovery is not always 100%.
To sum up, Odin Data Recovery Professional is a powerful and useful piece of software when it comes to data retrieval. It is not quite friendly to the system’s resources, yet this is to be expected from this type of product. Jobs are completed in due time and the interface is quite intuitive.
