Pixel8 Premium Recovery Software
Seagate Premium Recovery Software’s data recovery software becomes free. Renamed Pixel8 and available to all users, this program allows you to recover files deleted from your hard drive and restore them to their original location.
You don’t need to own a Seagate storage device to use this program, which works on multiple media, such as hard drives, USB flash drives…and also allows you to delete sensitive files permanently.
To activate the product, however, you will need to ask for a key and register on the Pixel8 site, which will ask you for personal information to validate your order and be able to use PRS.
More tools at your disposal
The interface offers 3 choices:
- Test devices
- Recover data
- Delete data
First of all, the device to be scanned must be selected. Then, launch the tool, not without first choosing a mode ( Simple, Advanced or Smart), and the type of files to be recovered. Finally, analyze the list of data and possibly extract the files you want to recover.
In some cases, it is possible to preview the file and if it is an image, see it appear in the preview window.
As for the part that allows you to delete files, it will always be useful if you don’t trust the people who might access your computer. In any case, this tool should be part of your basic toolbox.
A free software but to be handled with care
Pixel8 Premium Recovery Software is a great gift from Seagate, who did not block the use of this software to its products alone. Nevertheless, we remind you to take every precaution when using data recovery software.
