RescueData Recovery is indeed one of the best data recovery tool available that can restore data from an inaccessible, corrupt, formatted, and storage media. However, in some rare scenarios, the tool might get stuck while performing recovery on Windows system as reported by few users.

Here are few solutions to help you avoid RescueData Recovery from getting stuck during recovery process:

1. Check Minimum System Requirement

Before download, go ahead and read the minimum system requirements. Make sure you are running the software on a compatible system to ensure effortless recovery process.

2. Never Save Recovered data to Same Location

This is the most important step of data recovery process. While choosing the location to save the recovered data always use a different storage drive. You can use an external hard disk for recovery if you are recovering data from an internal storage and vice-versa.

3. Close All Applications

Sometimes, running application does not let RescueData recovery access important files that are required to carry out the recovery process. It’s highly recommended that you close all running applications except RescueData Windows Data Recovery to ensure smooth and error-free data recovery.

4. Run with Administrator Rights

For a successful recovery, always run RescueData Recovery software with Administrator Rights.

5. Unplug USB Devices

You must disconnect unnecessary USB devices connected to the system where recovery software is being executed. USB devices may interfere with the software causing it to get stuck at some point during recovery.

6. Perform Selective Recovery

  • From the main “Select What To Recover” screen select the available list of options
  • Follow the on screen recovery steps then. The software will only scan for the drive or files you had selected.

7. Make Sure the Drive is firmly connected

Check for any loose connection between the storage drive and your PC. A loose connection or frequent disconnection of the drive during scan or recovery process can cause the software to get stuck. Therefore make sure all cables are firmly connected and avoid moving the connected drives until the recovery is done.

8. Enough Power Supply to external Disk

Sometimes power supplied to the hard drive isn’t enough that cause the hard drive to stop in between. USB ports on laptops supply a different amount of power when running on battery juice and when connected to the main source. Therefore, if you are using a laptop, make sure you plug-in the charger to ensure optimal amount of current & voltage available to the drive.

9. Enough data where you are Saving the Recovered Data

Before saving the data, check whether enough space is available on the destination drive. It’s important that the location where data is being saved should have enough free storage space to accommodate recovered data.
