What is a DDWSCAN file?

A DDWSCAN file is a recovery session created by the Windows version of Clever Files Disk Drill. It contains a record of lost files found during a recovery scan. After opening a DDWSCAN file, users can select and recover any of the lost files it lists.

More Information

Disk Drill is a data recovery app that allows users to recover lost files from hard drives, flash drives, and SSD drives. While scanning a drive, Disk Drill produces a list of any lost files it has found. Users can select files from this list to restore them.

Every time a user performs a scan, Disk Drill for Windows saves that scan's results in a DDWSCAN file. Users can also pause a scan (for example, if they've found the file they were looking for) and manually save the current results as a DDWSCAN file, by selecting File → Save session as.... Users can load a DDWSCAN file to review the results it contains and, if the file contains a paused scan's contents, resume the paused scan.

NOTE: Disk Drill for Mac saves recovery sessions as .DDSCAN files. The Windows version of Disk Drill cannot load recovery sessions created by the Mac version.

How to open a DDWSCAN file

You can open a DDWSCAN file with the Windows version of CleverFiles Disk Drill. To do so, select File → Open recovery session from the app's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your DDWSCAN file.

To resume a paused scan after loading a DDSCAN file, select the Continue button. Disk Drill will then resume the scan associated with your DDWSCAN file.
