Choose required recovery options and start the recovery. After process completed it will return back to file explorer. You may switch between file views by file set selection from drop-down list at bottom.
Now, just copy the files to safe location with 'Copt to...' option that is available from file, folder or group context menu.

Data Recovery from Main Memory:

The data recovery from main storage may be availabe (e.g. on ETEN devices) or may be not available (e.g. on HTC Diamond and similar devices). Due to technical specifics of this storage (virtual, volatile file system), deleted files recovery or file system reconstruction may give wrong results. You may still recover good files from Main Storage (if available) by using IntelliRAW™ recovery method.
To try to recover data from Main Memory you need to:
  • Install the software to storage card;
  • Run data recovery with both 'find deleted files' and 'IntelliRAW™' options.
  • After data recovery, choose 'Extra found files' as primary source;
  • Never copy found files to main memory storage! Use external or extra memory instead!

Data Recovery from Extra/External storage:

Data recovery from extra or external storages has no storage-related limits, so all data recovery options are available. This kind of storages is usually represented by two instances in file system selection dialog: as the RAW storage ('chip' icon) and as WindowsCE FAT storage ('folder' icon).
For storages with damaged file system RAW access mode is preferred.
To recover data from extra/external storage (storage card etc.) you need to:
  • Install the software to main memory;
  • Run data recovery with preferred options ('reconstruction', 'find deleted files' alone or with 'IntelliRAW™' etc.).
  • After data recovery scan is completed, choose preferred files set ('Deleted files', 'Extra found files' etc.);
  • Never copy found files to same storage card! Use main memory or different storage card (if available) instead!
If no enough space is available on main storage:
  • After recovery scan complete, backup the scan result (the option is available from 'Actions' menu);
  • Copy as much files as possible to main memory;
  • Swap memory card with other (new, compatible, empty flash memory card) and move files from main memory there with Windows Mobile explorer;
  • Swap memory card again to return the card you are recovering data from.
  • Copy next portion of files to main memory (this could require file system selection again and loading scan result).
  • Repeat steps above until all data will be copied to new memory card.

Data Recovery from other device:

Make sure your other device (non-Windows Mobile phone, photo camera, MP3 player etc.) has compatible storage card. If yes, just insert the card to your Windows Mobile device and run data recovery as described above.

It's recommended to protect yourself and use compatible flash cards with your digital devices. For example if your mobile device supports miniSD cards (as well as half-size MMC) you may use on other device same miniSD card with special size adaptors (miniSD with full-size adaptor intead of SD and so on).
