"Simple, Priced Right, Effective"

August 23, 2011  |  By dolrdady

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

So simple, I managed to do it myself. Straightforward and clear. Drop down menus made it easy

Cons

None that I found.

Summary

It worked perfectly for me. Over 300GB of files recovered. I almost wish I had another corrupted drive, to use it again

"Recovered all data from formatted external hard drive!"

July 29, 2011  |  By dawnw5

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

Recovered everything and restored all directory structure. Instant support via online support chat for a few questions I had about licensing.

Cons

Absolutely none!

Summary

I originally was going to use VirtualLab but had a pre-manufactured response to any question I had that never answered a question from their support. I found on later reviews that others had the same problem. I decided to try File Scavenger and had my files recovered the next day. I had accidentally wiped out my external hard drive AND had mistakenly pointed to it to load Windows XP (unsuccessfully). I had actually did a quick and long format on it twice. File Scavenger recovered all files including music, video, pictures...everything...and it restored all my directory structure. All of that for $50.

"The tool probably works as advertised"

June 16, 2011  |  By RexBrown

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

The tool works.

Cons

Was not the tool I needed.

Summary

I downloaded the tool looking for something to do a particular job. None of the tools I downloaded would do what I needed but the tool does not particularly advertise that it would so I gave it the same rating as the average.

"It actually works"

May 09, 2011  |  By mdpianist

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

Easy! Search, recover. That's it.

Cons

Did not find any

Summary

This is the one to get. Some of these other ones I tried were so confusing and you could NOT actually recover the files. This one allowed me to recover and save the files! Thank you! It actually works. I can't believe it. :)

"Great program with welcome focus on usability"

April 29, 2011  |  By Adamanta

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

Good usability, nothing is left for the user to work out. It even has a dialogue to remind you about the explorer tree navigation although it was obvious anyway. You have simple or detailed, I personally did both but simple did the job just fine.

Cons

Shareware so have to pay for it. Perhaps lacks customisation of more advanced tools but is a general recovery tool for the average user.

Summary

Recommended, will recover your data without having to read documentation or be a data recovery specialist.

"File Scavenger worked when a dozen others failed"

April 17, 2011  |  By PSSnyder

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

Seems to find deleted and damaged files that other programs missed, also seems able to search damaged drives

Cons

Sometimes it does not work and you need to send the drive off for hundreds of dollars of clean room work if you hav eto have the files

Summary

I have been surprised how File Scavenger worked where other programs failed. It is not a particularly full featured or pretty user interface kind of program - bot it works just when you think you have lost that important file. It recovered a complete drive full of files when windows could not even find the drive.

"Bad program and ToS, stay away."

April 14, 2011  |  By Roaxis

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

At least it scans for files and tries to recover them...

Cons

Slow
Limited to one computer per key.

Summary

I don't recommend this program to anyone who is looking to buy it. It is a waste of money and left me feeling like I just wasted my money on a useless program. The one thing that I leaned is that I am never, and I mean never, doing business with QueTek ever again. And the reason why I feel as though it was a waste of money is because I installed the program on one computer, got the license key, junked the PC and installed on my new laptop and it said that I have an invalid product key. Never giving them another cent of my money... ever.

"cannot open recovered file"

March 15, 2011  |  By csanders1213

 |  Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

Pros

It does recover most of my files, but I find the ones I need the most, the reason I truly purchased the software, I cannot get to open.

Cons

cannot get my intended files to open after recovery.

Summary

If I cannot find a way to open the files I need the money paid for this utility is a waste.
