If you want to recover data from a crashed Dell laptop, you can try taking out its hard drive and connect it with another computer to do the recovery.

    1. Select the recovery mode

Launch Recoverit Data Recovery Software on your Dell laptop, Select the "Deleted Files Recovery" Mode. If your data was lost due to formatting or lost/deleted partition, you can choose "Formatted Disk Recovery" or "Lost Partition Recovery".

Note: Please do not install Recoverit on your Dell laptop's partition where the data was lost.

Note: Please do not save the recovered files to their original locations.

    1. What to do if you can`t find your desired data with "Deleted Files Recovery"?

If you can`t find your lost data with the "Deleted Files Recovery" mode, don`t worry. You can select the "All-Around Recovery" mode on the main panel and run a deep scan. It`ll provide better recovery quality and thus find more lost files, but the deep scan will probably taker longer time to complete than in other modes.


  1. The reason why you can recover lost data from Dell laptops is that these lost files are just inaccessible on your Dell laptop. They will be lost permanently only when new data overwrites them.
  2. If your Dell can no longer reboot, you can still recover data from it by taking out its hard drive and connecting it with another computer.
