    "Photo Recovery For PC/SD Card"

    June 11, 2014  |   By Teamclux

    Version: ArtPlus Digital Photo Recovery 3.1

    Pros

    I was stressed about deleting photo files that for some reason thought that they were copied on PC. This has not happened before, and when I realized they were deleted, I tried resolve on my own. Nope, did not work. So I looked on the web under "how to get photos from SD card after deleting them" and photo recovery appeared. Well to my relief there was a way to get them back. However, a bit sceptically I asked questions to the tech who informed me it was going to be ok. Now what a relief after thinking that they were gone for good. Yes they all came back plus older ones that were copied and deleted as well. Wow, impressive!
    FYI there is a portable version of Digital Photo Recovery, which can be found here:

    Cons

    I waste 4 hours of my time scanning for files, and the sofware makes me retype the registration code again, are u kidding me?????? also it will not accept all the characters in the box, the the program locks up and my 4 hr scan is long gone, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "this software SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    May 14, 2014  |   By Sharonen

    Version: ArtPlus Digital Photo Recovery 6.1.0.116

    Pros

    I don't know what happened, but I had a whole trip's worth of GoPro videos disappear from a new SD card. Photo Recovery seemed the most trustworthy, so I gave it a whirl. The first option didn't seem to find anything,

    Cons

    I waste 4 hours of my time scanning for files, and the sofware makes me retype the registration code again, are u kidding me?????? also it will not accept all the characters in the box, the the program locks up and my 4 hr scan is long gone, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named Wondershare Photo Recovery:

    and it lived up to my expectations.

    Summary

    My desktop is always cluttered with media files, especially photos of my nieces and pet terrier. When my Windows went black, Photo Recovery found all these precious pictures.

    "Very disappointed. Not as advertised."

    August 5, 2013  |   By krgregory

    Version: ArtPlus Digital Photo Recovery 6.1.0.114

    Pros

    Recovered almost all of the photos I had deleted (used memory card).

    Cons

    However, it was not user-friendly enough to explain instructions and the nuances of the program. Example - I went through the whole rigamorole and got everything recovered onto a screen, but wouldn't let me recover to my computer (or ANYwhere for that matter): as the reply I got from the Cust. Service when I emailed them - although they were quick & thorough to reply & identified the problem - gave NO CLEAR directions on how to then get past the problem so I could go ahead & download the photos . . . other than directing me to ANOTHER software. Which didn't work worth diddly.
    Found the 'Wise' undelete on my own. THAT one worked wonders!

    Summary

    NOt satisified. Quick customer service with questions/probs & they identified the problem quickly.
    However, they ended up sending me to a DIFFERENT software to accomplish what THEY advertise THEIR software does. How confusing is that?!?!?? Annoying too. I'm so skittish about downloading ANY software to my computer but ended up doing 4 total just to get to one that does what it says it will! (Wise UnDelete).
    Whats sad is, if the cust rep had given me instructions on how to work around the issue that came up & I could stay within their software to do so, I would have purchased the entire program, no problem!!

    "Thank you!"

    February 9, 2013  |   By pixBrad

    Version: ArtPlus Digital Photo Recovery 6.1

    Pros

    Saved my butt twice already. First when I deleted the wrong image during the photoshoot, and yesterday when the card suddenly stopped responding and I got was some error message from the camera. Windows said I must reformat the card but I declined and run this fabulous little program. Got ALL, but the last picture back! So thank you, thank you, thank you guys!

    Cons

    None! And definitely no malware there. Don't know *** are you people talking...

    Summary

    Again, thank you thank you , thank you!!!

    "Not worth the malware"

    January 27, 2013  |   By Blekko-IS-Malware

    Version: ArtPlus Digital Photo Recovery 6.1

    Pros

    Don't know yet

    Cons

    I have not been able to get this to work, because I've been too busy working to get my browser unhijacked and the malware off of my computer. This is the second time I have been burned by freeware infected downloaded from CN*T. I think this will be the last time I use this site.

    Summary

    Not worth the hassles.

    Updated on Jan 28, 2013

    After I got the malware removed, I tried running the software. Yes it "Free to try" but if you actually want to see the recovered files it costs you $24.95. Worst kind of crap-ware

    "Works as advertised"

    December 29, 2012  |   By nevenp

    Version: ArtPlus Digital Photo Recovery 6.1

    Pros

    Preview images before launching full restore

    Cons

    None. And that malware statement is a LIE!

    CNET screens all downloads for malware!

    Summary

    I'm working at ArtPlus and had to post this review only to fight the lying moron statement (probably a competitor hiding behind bgale9 fake name). Please DO post your own reviews of the program and help us fight dishonest scum.
