Mini Tool Power Data Recovery V8.5 App Review

Losing data is one of the most unpleasant things that can ever happen to anyone. We all save data on thumb drives, hard drives and on our computers. Time and again things happen that cause our data to get lost, maybe by erroneously deleting the data permanently. At such times it seems like there is little we can do other than source the data from where we got it in the first place or may just forget about it and suffer the consequences.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery is one application that can help make your life easier both in your personal and business life. The application can recover deleted files from any storage device. We have used the app and it has already earned its place among some of our best applications in the year 2019. Here is a breakdown of the app can do for you as well as it’s upsides and downsides.

The Interface (UI)

Mini Tool

Minitool Power Data Recovery has a clean and beautiful UI that blends well with the Windows 10 design language. Finding menu Items is easy since the UI doesn’t look cluttered. The start screen of the application shows all drives connected to the computer so that you can easily select the drive from which you want to recover deleted data. Its as easy that a non-Tech Savvy can navigate on the Tool easily without a hick-ups.

How the app works

To recover files from a drive, plug in the drive and open the application. Once the app opens, it shows a sleek interface which displays all the drives connected to the computer. Select the drive you want to recover deleted data from and click scan (located in the bottom right corner). Depending on the size of the drive and the number of deleted files in the drive, the application will take some time to scan the drive depending on how big the dive is.

Once the scan process is complete, a results window will show up. The results window is one of the most powerful features of this application because it manages to group files according to file types. This makes it easier to locate the specific file you might be looking for.

Mini Tool

Once you have located the file you are looking for, you can save it by choosing a location to save the file. The application recommends that you do not save the recovered files on a separate drive to prevent the risk of overwriting the deleted data.

Recovery speed

MiniTool is a data recovery powerhouse. Most application that does data recovery are painstakingly slow and sometimes the average success rate for recovering files is very low. That is not the case with MiniTool, in just under 2 minutes you can recover files from a thumb drive that is 8GB in size. Compared to other software in the same category that is very fast.

Other miscellaneous features

Regardless of the simple and clean UI, the application packs a number of handy features that just make it so satisfying to use. The preview menus allows you to preview the file you want to recover before persisting it on the recovery drive. Using the find menu you can easily and quickly search for a file that you want form the list of recovered files, the filter menu makes it even easier by allowing you to filter the files using different criteria.

The Downsides.

There is very little to complain about MiniTool power data recovery. It seems the application checks all the boxes that matter for a data recovery application. The preview feature is great but we had to download it as a plugin and it makes a lot of sense to us if the feature came in bundled with the main application


MiniTool power data recovery should actually be called big tool power data recovery. It is one of the best data recovery software we have used to date. The application is suitable for both personal and business use. It is a good investment for anyone who dreads ever losing files again.
