Step 4: In this stage, you can select a scan mode. Considering the need for speed, we would like to recommend you to use Quick Scan, which works in many scenarios and is capable of retrieving most of the lost files. However, in case that mode doesn’t serve you well, you could come back to this stage and then select Formatted Recovery. Similarly, if that fails too, you could resort to Deep Scan, which is the most effective mode.
