"Product OK, but avoid company"

July 19, 2014  |  By oseses

 |  Version: Active@ Undelete Data Recovery 8.6

Pros

Fairly powerful tools, interface OK. Just remember that after a few days/weeks of PC use, many files can be irretrievably overwritten and this software can't perform miracles.

Cons

The trial versions of other apps like Recuva are as much or more effective. Trial version of this one is highly crippled. Beware of this company: I needed to reinstall the standard edition that I paid for and they wanted to charge $14.95 for an "upgrade". They even try to charge you $10 to change the email address that is attached to your order/reg key!

Summary

Worst experience I've ever had as a paid customer with a software vendor. There are a lot of better alternatives, this company doesn't deserve your money.

"Did not recover a single file"

May 05, 2011  |  By mastix

 |  Version: Active@ Undelete Data Recovery 7.3.003

Pros

Good price

Cons

Does not what it promises. For me it was totally a waste of time and money

Summary

After making a quick format from an external USB Disk I forgot to save some valuable data.I used their demo and it detected all the erased files but could not retrieve any as those were more than 64kb allowed by the DEMO so I purchased the program. I was quite confident as the status of the detected files was "healthy" under this program terms. Well....not a single files from the hundreds was recovered. All were corrupted ( word,pdfs,jpgs) So I can only say this program is not worth it. Look for another option if you need your files back, at least if it is from a formatted drive.

"Quick, effective and reliable"

April 24, 2008  |  By finder42

 |  Version: Active@ Undelete Data Recovery 7.0.045

Pros

This is complete solution. You can restore your hard drive/files without buying/downloading other software. Start with creating image of failed drive and work until you recover everything you need - all in one.

Intuitive interface lets you start using program within minutes. All recovery processes are accompanied by detailed information.

So, I loved this program... Probably because it saved me a lot of time and let me restore terabytes of valuable data that seemed to be lost after the worst hardware failure (ntfs volumes were allocated at SAN via iSCSI-targets).

Well, thank you LSoft!

PS: price is miserable for this piece of art in modern software world.

"Active@Undelete works but watch out for their sales policy"

April 12, 2008  |  By beanbaguk

 |  Version: Active@ Undelete Data Recovery 7.0.045

Pros

I bought Active@Undelete after my fiancée accidentally deleted some files on a USB memory stick and I haven't looked back since.

Not only did it successfully recover the USB stick files, but I've also recovered CompactFlash files from my digital camera and also entire My Documents folder which I accidentally deleted. It basically does what it says on the tin!!!

Cons

However.....(and this is a big however)......what annoys me the most is the sales pitch. "All prices include free technical support and free updates."

Beware. It doesn't. You only get upgrades for the current version. Any additional versions will cost you a $14.95 upgrade charge. I find this wording unfair and totally misleading.

For this reason I can only offer it a 3 star rating since I don't like being cheated for something I buy.

A shame really, because it would otherwise be a fantastic piece of software.

"A scam of a product?"

February 28, 2008  |  By Doombear

 |  Version: Active@ Undelete Data Recovery 5.5.1

Pros

It was able to find my recently deleted files.

Cons

Immediately after accidentally deleting a folder, I paid for and installed the full version of Active Undelete from another drive, as they instructed.. It undeleted my files as promised, but all of them were in a corrupt and unusable state - my MPEG files had huge macroblocking, my Photoshop files were missing most of the layers, my MP3 files wouldn't open. I think it's a scam. It has now been months and the company hasn't answered any of my e-mails. I'm considering reporting them. Don't waste your time with the trial version, because it has the actual undelete feature disabled.

"Waste of time"

January 08, 2008  |  By CheekyD21

 |  Version: Active@ Undelete Data Recovery 5.5

Cons

Started the program and it found some fault sectors but no option to skip or automatically retry/ignore the popup box.

VERY annoying popup box for every sector it found. Can't stop it/get rid of it.
