    "Very high price!"

    August 20, 2012  |  


    high speed


    The files will be named differently so you'll have to retrieve everything to find the one that you'll need, and since the company charge you for the memory size of how many files retrieved, you'll end up having to pay for what you don't need

    If your files were deleted , formatted drive or a failing drive yes your files will have generic names.
    Its not that we rename them, its the files have no name and we have to issue a name for cataloging purposes. With the scenarios I mention above there is no software that recovers the original names.

    If you had a corrupted drive it is possible to recover the files with the original folder and name structure.

    We sell our software for $99.00 and you can use it as many times as you want, year after year.
    Once you buy it , it can be used endlessly regardless of how much memory or files you have to recover.

    Feel free to contact me directly, I would like to know who told you or if our website has some type of error on it that mentions we charge based on the " memory size of how many files recovered" I have never heard of this before and can not find any reference of that information.
