I lost everything on a Hard Drive. I had formatted the 'C Drive' and reinstalled WinXP and my 2nd HDrive lost everything. It showed memory as empty everything GONE but a manager program showed memory was used.
I used MiniTool and it got at least 85 percent of the files back in the original folders. 10 percent I reckon was in a list of files so I was able to put these files back where they belonged. ALL with their original names, it was just like looking at my drive before they all disappeared.
I had tried 2 other Undelete programs some that had many good comments but were no good for this whole HDrive with files/folders gone. Forget 5 stars, it gets 10 stars.
As the subject says, this tool finds data that other programs can't!
After a visit to Powerscourt in Co. Wicklow, Ireland, all of our photos of that day and earlier in the week with family and friends, somehow disappeared off our SD card. A google search this morning brought us to this website and program. Absolutely fantastic. Within minutes it recovered our three videos and 306 photos. I had tried two other products from the google search prior to this because they were higher on the results list but neither worked. Third time lucky! I would recommend this particular product to anyone who has lost photos from an SD card.
My 39weeks-pregnant wife was in tears when Verizon deleted pregnancy pictures off her phone. They were replacing her broken phone, and the nimrod up front formatted the SD card, wiping all the photos.
Tried 3 other products before this, didn't find any pictures or files. This file found and recovered 220 pictures off the SD card. Amazing! I'm going to buy this one, for sure.
I own a Nikon D300. Despite the almost "idiot proof" flash format method, my thumb was accidentally pressing the trash button while I was changing modes... and... voila! Data erased from the CF card. It was my kids' First Communion with family and friends flying in from afar. I was in the doghouse with everyone. I downloaded MiniTool and within minutes, it had recognized my deleted files and I was EASILY able to restore them. Freeware? FANTASTICware. So easy to use. Support these guys with a donation.
This is a very good recovery software, easy to use, free. What it's not is any better than others and didn't really stand out of the crowd as far as recovery. Pandora still recovered 40 more data off my old drive than this did in deep scan and much of it found from MiniTool that was recovered, was not viewable or usable, although a very good portion of it was so I have no accurate ratio to give. For example, most jpeg files were no longer viewable.
It still does a great recovery job and it's free and especially for data that has just been wiped, as with my other partition, it found a lot of stuff fairly quick. Definitely worth a try.
This tool made me a hero in my grandmothers eyes after she accidentally deleted all her photos off her SD card on her phone. It was simple to use and recovered the files quickly.
