Editors' review

This tool is an easy-to-use and straightforward digital-image-recovery program, but its key feature is disabled in the demo version. Digital Photo Recovery has no help file, but you won't need it. Instead, the program has a wizard-like interface that guides you through the entire recovery process. Searching for images to recover is easy--just select the drive and cluster size, and press the Next button. Digital Photo Recovery will then scan the target drive thoroughly and display the images. However, the searching process may take more time than you thought it would, depending on your storage device's capacity. Although the program effectively detects images subject to recovery, you won't be able to recover even a single file due to the demo's limitations. Users searching for a simple image-recovery tool may want to give this application a try, but we can't guarantee the effectiveness of the full-featured version.

    "It worked for me - it was a last ditch effort after another program failed."

    December 28, 2007   |   By feurerp

    Version: Digital Photo Recovery 2.3

    Pros

    My xd card was totally erased. This software found my last two rounds of photos (612 photos) and recovered them. Note: It is worth trying the demo version to see if it first will even be able to FIND your files. Once I knew that it located the data, I paid the $29 to be able to recover / save it. Well worth it for me.

    Cons

    The software is very slow - takes FOREVER to browse. No help file. No full screen.

    "Not perfect, but pretty good."

    November 27, 2006   |   By jkwilco

    Version: Digital Photo Recovery 2.3

    Pros

    This program was very easy to use, and it successfully recovered almost everything I needed. It took about 10 minutes to search a 512 MB xD card, and all of my recently-deleted jpegs were fine. Of three avi files, two were recovered without error.

    Cons

    My Tiff files were not recovered, and one avi movie was unplayable. Scrolling through thumbnails was very slow.

    "50/50 for my recover"

    September 17, 2006   |   By Alfadriver

    Version: Digital Photo Recovery 2.3

    Pros

    Small & compact program that gives you the opportunity to see whats missing. Its a free trial - who could ask for more. Great email response/help.

    Cons

    after shelling out my Visa card it did do what it claimed but it didn't pull "all" the photos out.

    My windows enviorment was knocked out by a "major virus" and I lost everything.

    A friend introduced me to "ONTRACK'S - Easy Recovery Professional." E.R.P. got everything back in its original folder and its original location. I found photos that D.P.R 2.3 didn't recover, along with additional files and software.

    D.P.R 2.3 wont recover everything but it will recover some things

    I have no regrets spending the money on ER Pro.

    "This product failed to live up to its promises"

    December 14, 2005   |   By riptoff

    Version: Digital Photo Recovery 2.3

    Pros

    It did recover a large percentage of jpeg files and was easy to activate.

    Cons

    Although this program claims to retrieve Tiffs, none of my Tiff files were readable, that equates to 107 files (over half of what was listed as "recovered")although they appeared as blank thumbnails. Of the remaining jpeg thumbnails that appeared complete in the "try before you buy" view, twenty (about one fifth)were only partial images on opening (after purchasing the product which promises "what you see is what you get back").

    Navigating the thumbnail-sized recovered files was painstakingly slow (but don't rely on the "recovered" total which can be misleading).

    Efforts to follow up my problems through the support network were hard work (responses were not within the 24 hour period promised). When I did finally receive technical support information it did not resolve my problem. I sent problem files for analysis and received no response. Requests for a refund were refused, but I only got this information from their online agents, the manufacturers just stopped responding to emails.

    They don't deserve your business, there are plenty of others to try.

    "Fairly Solid little app."

    July 12, 2005   |   By mincer

    Version: Digital Photo Recovery 2.3

    Pros

    Very simple to use.

    Did ok on the recovery.

    Works with .avi

    Cons

    Did not manage to properly display or recover around 20% of my photos.

    It seemed to find a lot of tiff files (which is a format I dont use). However all of these files showed up as blank thumbnails in the GUI and were not viewable or openable (with photoshop9) after they were 'recovered'.

    A bit slow (40 mins to do a 512mb SDcard.)

    Very poor thumbnail navigation.

    No fullscreen option.

    Despite these niggles this is a worthwhile product, just dont expect to get everything back.

    "Works well, but slow!!"

    May 06, 2004

    Version: Digital Photo Recovery 2.3

    Summary

    Simple, easy to use interface. I would rate this product as excellent, however it takes forever to browse through the thumbnails of photos! If they improved that I would strongly consider buying this product
