"Didn't work as expected"

October 01, 2012  |  By josephabm

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

Did not work in my case.

Cons

Did not work, got it uninstalled.

Summary

Threw message as "no CD/DVD drives for restore operation". Got another recovery tool named isobuster, which did wonder and helped me recover some important files. Thanks neways.

"Not pretty, but neither was the disc"

September 16, 2012  |  By crucialherman

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

Simple interface, common sense save path.

Cons

Doesn't multitask well, with part of the interface disappearing after alt tabbing so that no progress indication could be seen from that point.

Summary

I had three large zip files on a DVD that windows couldn't access. CD Recovery Toolbox slowly but surely recovered two of the three files. It is a good first step before looking to physically rejuvenate a disc surface. Some extra code allowing the user to designate a cut-off point would be good. I left this running overnight and it was still running, with the third file only about 0.5% done (irrecoverable clearly). Having said that, progress is not linear so run this with nothing else in the background and when you don't need to use your pc and it may still get there in the end.

"Worked great for me"

June 24, 2012  |  By z-yogi

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

A while back I burned some mp3 files to CD to make room on my boot disk. Now that I've added a hard drive, so I wanted to copy them back. Something was fubar with my burn to CD though, because although my computer could 'see' the files on the CD, they could not be copied to my HD, nor would they 'play' when I clicked on one. This tool got MOST of the files off.

I think some reviewers expect too much. I mean, if your computer won't 'load' the CD (ie: so you can see the file structure in Windows Explorer), how can you expect this tool to read it.

Cons

There should be an option to 'Skip' a file automatically after some user defined time has passed with no bytes read from the file.

Summary

If you have a CD that your PC can 'see', but you can't copy the files from the CD to your HD using 'normal' methods, there is a chance this tool COULD do it. I got about 1/3 of my files off. And I must admit that I 'skipped' any file after the 'read bar' didn't move for 30 seconds. So I suspect if I was more patient, I would have gotten more of my files.

"unsafe, stay far away"

June 08, 2012  |  By bradmajors

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

none none none

Cons

Program installs AVG toolbox software without your consent.

By default the program installs AVG software. The program appears to provide you the option of not installing the software, but if you select the option to NOT install AVG software it is installed anyways without your consent.

The AVG software provides NO way for it to be uninstalled. Windows uninstall does NOT work. There is no option in Firefox to remove the AVG addon. When AVG support is contacted they say you must install more AVG software in order to remove the AVG software. After installing more AVG software you will find that the uninstall does not work.

Summary

unsafe software, stay far away,

recommend doing a complete virus scan of your computer if you install this software by mistake to check for virus and tojans.

"Worked Great!"

April 23, 2012  |  By Tbatbon

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

Simple, staightfoward. Recovered a (older) Program CD that I had chipped/cracked very slightly, but enough not to be workable any longer. Downloaded, Ran, was prompted for the damaged CD, inserted,and away it went! Was able to recover with no problem or hangups. Those who complain it took too long to complete; well, I have no complaints; it was Free, it worked - I just let it do it's thing and yes, hours later, it was finished, but I had a working Program CD for the wait!

Cons

None for me

"Worthless Product"

April 20, 2012  |  By Rick2Dad

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

Quick uninstall

Cons

Did not even recognize a CD in the drive. All it stated was, "Load CD."

Summary

The CD I was trying to recover only had a couple of very, minor scratches. This product is not worth trying if it cannot even detect a CD in the drive.

"Yay, it worked! Sort of."

March 16, 2012  |  By Chris686

 |  Version: CD Recovery Toolbox Free 1.1.18

Pros

Damaged CD kept failing during installation of a program. I was able to extract the damaged file from the disc

Cons

Didn't recover the file completely.

Summary

I have a very old game that you can't get any more, and the installation failed every time because of the damaged disc. I was able to extract the files to my disc drive and get the game installed, but the installer reported one of the files didn't match what it was supposed to be.

It looks like it was just a game texture, so I don't think it will cause any problems. Maybe that texture just looks screwed up in-game. It's possible I could replace the textures anyways.

Never installed a program that does less.
