Easy to download, install , and purchase.
VMFS Recovery does not recover deleted snapshots in the way as advertised.
Very limited documentation
Support is confrontational when asked for assistance
I had a very bad experience with Diskinternals. More specifically, with the VMFS Recovery software. I was led to believe that this product could recover deleted snapshots, however, it was unable to recover the snapshots and I had to use competitor software to perform the recovery.
Rstudio was able to recover the snapshots with ease and they were fully functional afterwards where the Diskinternals product could not fully recover the snapshots.
When I presented the information to the Diskinternals support team, they were very confrontational and refused to assist with this case in a professional manner.
Suffice it to say, I will never buy another product from this company again and I will share my experience with any and all IT Consultants I come in contact with.
Everything about this software didn't work right. First, I had to download it 3 times to get a decent copy that would actually install correctly. It locked up several times on the first install, then started repeating the issue on the second install.
After that, it would not connect to a Linux file system drive automatically. So I tried generating an index, which took HOURS to do. After generating the index, it wouldn't (or couldn't) display the information! I tried several times on 2 different drives. Exasperated after fighting this software for about 2 weeks!
Just junk. Giving it 1/2 star is being generous.
Allowed me to easily extract all data from a broken network drive.
You can see all data on the drive just like you would in Windows.
None for me
Our 2Tb WD MyBook Live network drive just stopped working one day. It could not be accessed by any system. After being told by WD it would need to be replaced, we yank the HDD out of the enclosure and had our techiest friend at my partner's work see if he could access the drive. Like, this guy has built computer clusters. He said nothing could be done.
I then took it to the IT manager at my work. He tried various things for several days using a linux system, and said his only hope would be to copy and image of the whole disk onto another, or it might wreck it even further. This kept crashing, and in the end he gave up.
I then took it home, found this simple freeware, downloaded it and bingo, I could see everything on the drive and copy it as simply as you would from any USB stick. I can't believe I was able to salvage my 2Tb worth of data.
I am not at all a computer person, all I did was take the SATA cable off the back of my DVD drive and plug it into the broken HDD, and download this program. So happy!
I can't promise it will work on everything but for a bricked MyBook Live it was a godsend.
Complete windows GUI;
Worked perfectly on a 10+ years old RedHat Linux hard drive
I just wanted to copy files from the old Linux drive to a Windows 7
computer and it did that perfectly.
Highly recommend. Could save you lots of time.
a good program that does its job right and quick. the version 2 is avialable under w7.
none. update the version if not on NT system.
when you work with several OS (Windows/Linux) on the same machine, you'll need such simple and usefull program to copy your work back to Windows... Linux can already read both Windows formats...
Does not work with trojan removed
Alligator.K52 Removed by Antivirus software, no previews with this file removed
Allows user to explore and copy files from a Linux FS hard drive within a Windows enviroment very easily.
None so far.
