Editors' Review

+

This single-function application is a reliable and practical tool for recovering deleted files on your system.

Data Recovery requires no installation and runs in a neatly designed, straightforward interface. The program scans a user-selected drive and displays removed files in a sortable list. For a quick search, specify part of the file name. The list contains file details such as folder, file type, size, and attributes. You can then choose which files you want to recover and specify the destination of the recovered files. Data Recovery also has a wipe feature for completely removing the located files.

There aren't any bells and whistles, but users looking for an efficient and reliable file recovery tool will find this freeware handy and useful.

"Virus laden"

December 27, 2013  |  By Damonrgsdfsg

 |  Version: Data Recovery 2.3.1

Pros

None that I could find...

Cons

It failed to do anything but install a bunch of programs I did not want. It reset my homepage in my web browser and reset my search engine to its crappy tool. I had to waste 20 minutes uninstalling and resetting my settings. This is a pure virus.

Summary

Beware of the virus insertion tool.

"Great Backup data recovery for all Storage Devices"

August 26, 2013  |  By adonismark

 |  Version: Data Recovery 2.3.1

Pros

I lost all my data and photos, from my PC. Some said there is nothing usable and I am searching over the past 24 hours almost ready to scream and give up all hope. I found Amrev Data Recovery software on a Google search and more recovery software and follow the step by step after few hours my entire data file, Massages & Photo are recover, wow thanks God!! It's really awesome data recovery software Thanks Amrev Software Thanks a Lot

Cons

Very fast recovery process (at least for big files)

Summary

Overall, this software recovered all data that I didn't think I would get back. It was very fast and would ask me to "overwrite" files quite often, but it eventually worked.

"Who knows?"

August 05, 2012  |  By nikkosguy

 |  Version: Data Recovery 2.3.1

Pros

Easy and fast to set up.

Cons

I needed to retrieve a deleted file from a Digital Secure card. It would not recognize my camera as a lettered drive of any kind. It will only retrieve deleted data on a card if you have a car reader installed as a drive.

Summary

All in all this program could not assist me. So I can't say if it worked or not. Too bad it needed a specific drive letter to work with.

"Thought all pics were gone, so this is a lifesaver!"

July 16, 2012  |  By B-dubs

 |  Version: Data Recovery 2.3.1

Pros

Data Recovery was fairly simple and easy to use. When I realized that I had hit "delete all" on the camera, I nearly broke down in tears. It helped me recover the majority of the pictures from our trip to Montana. Although it didn't recover all of them, it made me extremely happy to have most of them back.

Cons

Frustratingly slow, but since I didn't have to pay any money to recover my pics from our trip to Montana, I dealt with how long it took. Some pictures came back with part of the pic missing, while others couldn't be recovered at all. I think I was able to recover about 90% of the pictures.

Summary

Overall, this program recovered many pics that I didn't think I would get back. It was very slow and would ask me to "overwrite" pics quite often, but it eventually worked.

"Worked with some problems"

February 20, 2012  |  By Dangerfreak70

 |  Version: Data Recovery 2.3.1

Pros

No installation required
Very small
Easy to use
File name filter

Cons

Search seems to take forever (can be stopped though)
Search results seem to repeat forever (sd card)
Very slow recovery process (at least for big files)

Summary

The search (sd card) didn't stop and it kept adding files to the result list, though they already had been found (same name, date, size, etc., maybe a bug).

If you want to search for a specific file you accidently deleted, this program will work perfectly for you. If you search for all deleted files, you really need a lot of patience.

However, the recovery was successful.

"Worked for deleted files from my Flip video camera!"

February 17, 2012  |  By myaccountatcnet

 |  Version: Data Recovery 2.3.1

Pros

Worked to delete 14 of 15 videos my 4 year old accidentially deleted from my Flip video camera. First I tried UndeleteMyFiles, but it said it couldn't work with FAT32 files. But this one did it, for free! (I gave a donation via the website.)

Cons

The 15th one wouldn't play. Oh well.

Summary

Yippee!
