Editors' Review

+
Easy to use but anemic in features, File Recover falls short of the better offerings in this genre. As far as we could gather, it can't restore files on corrupted or formatted partitions, nor on systems that can't boot. On top of that, the trial version can't save (or even view) recovered files.

File Recover has a pleasant, straightforward interface, and it did restore a deleted file in our tests, but for $29.95, you can buy much more capable recovery software.

    "Don't bother"

    October 29, 2011   |   By galen1969

    Version: File Recover 7.5.0.15

    Pros

    Because it never really finished scanning a 135 Mb drive, it gave me time to watch some TV and do the dishes before I finally stopped it

    Cons

    Found some useless files over two years old that had been overwritten, and only one of over 200 files accidentally deleted within the hour and with no other activity between deletion and install/scan with this software. Inaccurate and incomplete results. I didn't even try to recover the file it did find. Given its performance, it would no doubt make it impossible to use another app for recovery.

    Summary

    A waste of several hours pc time for nothing.
