"Waste of six hours time"

September 18, 2012  |  By markdoiron

 |  Version: Active@ Partition Recovery 7.1

Pros

None at all.

Cons

Highly technical interface, very poor instructions (instructions on HOW to recover a partition are actually detailed descriptions of code, not a how to guide), and is not compatible with LDM partitions. Total waste of time.

Summary

Don't buy!

"Works. What a relief."

May 16, 2011  |  By davjoh1

 |  Version: Active@ Partition Recovery 3

Pros

The professional windows-dos will restore a partition.

Cons

They can be more upfront about which version will restore a partition.

Summary

The professional Windows-DOS will restore a partition. In my case, it wasn't overwritten. I haven't seen where it works in DOS yet.
They can be more upfront about which version will restore a partition. It's not so easy to think it through when your feeling desperate. I bought the DOS only version before finding out that I needed the Pro version.

I have later found that 'Mini Tool Partition Wizard Home Edition 6.0' will restore partitions and it is free. Fortunately, I don't make $80 mistakes too often. That was $35 or so for Active Partition DOS and $50 for Active Partition Windows-DOS.

Updated on May 16, 2011

I used Active Partition Recovery 6.0.

Updated on May 16, 2011

They were very kind to refund what I paid for the DOS version.

Cons

None... really!!! I was just so relieved!!!

Summary

(Version 5.5) Great program, after downloading and watching every % of a 4 hour superscan it found my 'missing' partition and restored it too! (after purchasing full version). Worth every penny and as another review said - this saved my backside too!!

"Great Program"

August 13, 2009  |  By Practice

 |  Version: Active@ Partition Recovery 3

Pros

Will fix damaged partitions.

Cons

I haven't use this allot so can't say there are any cons at this point.

Summary

If course, if your hard drive is defective and/or failing, then your only option is a data recovery center. If this is the case, I recommend OnTrack at OnTrack.com. But if your hardware is good and your partition was damaged for whatever reason, then this program should work great for you. This is the best one I have personally used and I highly recommend it.

The most common use for this will probably for people with external storage, like USB drives, that did not use the Safely Remove Hardware option when removing it and has damaged the partition, and Windows is asking to format the drive. Internal drive partitions can also be damaged on other ways.

"It worked! It worked! It worked....phew!!!"

July 06, 2009  |  By gclark20

 |  Version: Active@ Partition Recovery 3

Pros

Interface is easy on the eyes and intuitive enough to operate without alot of ramping up. Need to loss weight? Sweat through a superscan...free of charge!

Cons

My only gripe: I was dissappointed with the 'Save scan Results' option which made the app crash the first time causing me to sit through another 4 hours of superscan.

Summary

At the end of the day it worked as promised. My deleted partition was found and restored without loss of data. Thanks for saving my backside!

"Recovered the partition with smooth and ease"

January 29, 2009  |  By neo_expert

 |  Version: Active@ Partition Recovery 3

Pros

I have recovered my partition within minutes . I have tried almost 5 other softwares without any success. Then tried this software (Full version) and it worked for me.

Cons

When I tried to recover the partition, it showed an error message saying to read the help file. However the help file is not much useful

"Download @ your peril!"

February 21, 2007  |  By dane_dare

 |  Version: Active@ Partition Recovery 3

Pros

Pleasant GUI combined with a satisfactory Wizard. To summarize this program is Nice to look at.

Cons

Unfortunately the program fails to perform. Try B4U Buy has been rewritten to Buy B4U Try. This software is useless, unless you want to believe the extravagant claims and trust door to door sales men or have a stash of cash to waste to give it a whirl on the off chance it works, otherwise I suggest stay clear! There are better, cheaper programs out there.

"Worked Great and very professional web site."

May 19, 2005  |  By Voraz

 |  Version: Active Partition Recovery 2.1.1

Pros

Very Easy to Use and found a deleted inactive partition. Should the directories in the partition before writting to the HD so there would be no mistakes about what you were recovering.

Cons

I think it should include a MBR repair utility in addition to the backup and restore portions.

"Excellent"

May 08, 2005  |  By Conspirazy

 |  Version: Active Partition Recovery 2.1.1

Pros

I am not sure why the negative reviews, but this software saved my butt. I accidentally erased the partition when running Windows XP setup. I used the DEMO version which allowed me to see and review the contentes on my hard drive. I went ahead and purchased it and it restored it immediately. A++

Cons

Nothing, very straight forward and easy to use.
