EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard WinPE Edition
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard WinPE Edition is designed for data recovery when your computer fails to boot or you have some lost data located in C drive (e.g. mistakenly delete a file on C drive, perform a system recovery by accident).
Since operations on C drive usually creates temp files, and these files would overwrite the lost data you are searching for, this makes you under a high risk of data being permanently lost if you directly start data recovery procedure in Windows.
However, with WinPE edition you are able to recover data from a totally different environment which can prevent any further damage from happening in this kind of case. This article will tell you how to use this edition to recover data.

For old 7.0 version, click Proceed to create it.
You are able to Export ISO file, then use the other burning tools to create the bootable media.
Step 2: Changing BIOS boot order
You need to place CD drive or USB-HDD in the first location of your boot queue in order to load from the bootable device just created.
For most time, this can be configured in BIOS setup utility. You can press F2 (for laptop), Del (for desktop) or a specified key in your brand computer to login the utility.
