Editors' Review

+
Losing your data can feel like getting mugged, but BadCopy Pro gives you a fighting chance. It's a one-stop recovery tool for removable media, including CD-/DVD-ROM, floppies, memory cards, USB disks, and even hard drives. The no-nonsense interface guides users directly toward the goal. Several recovery modes can help even when Windows can't see any files (for instance, when the medium has been formatted or corrupted). Before restoring files, you can preview images and text. Note, however, the trial version only allows you to preview found files--a regrettable but common limitation in programs of this type. Straightforward and versatile, BadCopy Pro is a good choice for novices and power users alike.

"sort of worked"

December 19, 2012  |  By em6001

 |  Version: BadCopy Pro 4.10.1215

Pros

It found all the files on the CD with no problems even though this cd has a crack through half of one side. It also allows you to preview whether it has recovered your files before you pay for the full version which is a nice touch.

Cons

It recovered the CDA file, not the actual audio file, so it did what it was supposed to I guess but the result is useless to me! I didn't know what a CDA file was before I paid for the full programme unfortunately. Windows Media player has managed to rip the full audio on 7 of 14 tracks on this CD.

Summary

It has the potential to work really well, probably better with pictures or files. Unfortunately it didn't do quite what I needed it to.

"Preview other products before you buy this"

June 27, 2012

 |  Version: BadCopy Pro 4.10.1215

Pros

Easy interface and heavily advertised so easy to find

Cons

For my situation, did not do the job at all. Giving it three stars instead of one only because the program may work great for somebody else, in other circumstances.

Summary

My problem was a dead flash drive. Eventually I recovered all my files using another program after getting poor results with Badcopy. Badcopy recovered most of my Microsoft files (Word and Excel) in some kind of deconstructed mode - mostly "repaired" zipped files with numbers for names that I eventually discovered contained a lot of xml files and individual images. My information was there, but basically in an unusable form. I could have foreseen this would be the result if I had properly previewed all the individual files before buying the product, but I was too impulsive. So, a warning - preview what it will give you before you buy it. Don't assume that xml files will really turn out to be xls files or that files with zip extensions will be your lost documents. Keep shopping for a product that previews the files it will recover with their full names. It didn't take me too much longer to find something that recovered everything I needed in perfect condition.

"Saved a lot of my photographs from oblivion"

August 14, 2010  |  By Brachvogel

 |  Version: BadCopy Pro 4.10.1215

Pros

Two of my DVDs became corrupted and were rendered unreadable during the burning process and thought I had lost over a year's worth of photography. To my great relief, BadCopy Pro was able to rescue the photos on both occasions.

Cons

On one other occasion, it wasn't possible to rescue the files. The DVD was probably just too badly corrupted.

Summary

The money I paid for this programme was nothing in comparison to the value of the work it retrieved from the DVDs for me. I thoroughly recommend this programme.

"Not worth the money"

February 16, 2010  |  By butcharama

 |  Version: BadCopy Pro 4.10.1215

Pros

I would think if the program recovered the files you needed that would be a Pro.

Cons

Did not recover files I needed recovered

Summary

If it works for you it would be a good deal. Unfortunately The program didn't do what I needed.

"Excellent: Recovered file other software couldn't read."

May 04, 2009  |  By pbrewin

 |  Version: BadCopy Pro 4.10.1215

Pros

Trial version successfully recovered mp3 file on SD memory card that was corrupted due to digital recorder being switched off before save complete. Windows XP reported "File Corrupted", when opened by most programs. Others said it was empty.

Cons

Large files (including 1 hour MP3 file I recovered) cannot be previewed on trial version. Although it indicated it had successfully recovered file, I had to pay for full version without proof it worked. Very glad I did, as the content was fine.

Summary

Even if I never use it again, Badcopy Pro was worth the registration money for recovering the 1 hour audio recording that other programs had failed to recover. Very impressed on the basis of this single use.

"Found some files, but did not find all"

December 31, 2008  |  By maestro118

 |  Version: BadCopy Pro 4.10.1215

Pros

Recovers a wide range of file types (no XLSX though)

Cons

Does not maintain file names or folder structure.

Summary

I had a 8gb flash drive that became corrupted and which Windows prompted to Format if I tried to access it. BadCopy found about 2300 files, but when it recovers them it does not keep their filename, or any folder structure. So it was a partial success.
