    Pros

    Summary

    good software but too expensive

    "Worked great"

    April 2, 2010  |   By DocMordrid

    Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

    Pros

    Had a 500g USB drive that lost its partition table and was formatted by a stupid relative.and File Scaveger recovered 98% of it. There were a few files lost, mostly images, but the rest came through just fine.

    Cons

    Not much other than the long scan time, but I look at that as it doing a thorough job.

    Summary

    Excellent tool that has earned its keep many times.

    "Extremely Slow, but it works"

    March 16, 2010  |   By jermap

    Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

    Pros

    Recovered my most critical data saved from a backup

    Cons

    Extremly slow, took 88 hrs to recover ~30gb

    Summary

    My hard drive was working great and i was in the process of adding files to it when i accidently knocked it off my desk. I guess it became unmounted as i could not access anything on the drive. I downloaded this software and it showed over 200 gb of files. So i tried to recover the most critical first which was located in a windows.old backup folder. It was approximately 30gb and it took 88 hrs to recover. I tried to recover some other folders (photos) which was about 11gb and it only took about 15 minutes. Unfortunately i couldn't open any of the photos as i continued to receive a "cannot open file, it is either corrpupted, blah blah blah. But overall id have to say it does work I paid $40 and it was well worth it considering what i was able to recover.

    "Useful and easy to use"

    January 25, 2010  |   By jbridge80

    Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

    Pros

    It helped me get back most of my files lost during the disk crash. Though there's still some files missing, I feel it is already the best it can do.

    Cons

    The price is high

    "Good and free"

    December 26, 2009  |   By shimmshaw

    Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

    Pros

    It recovers files that are under 64kb, so you can save as many pictures as you want on your computer.

    Cons

    some of the pictures it 'recovers' are incomplete. Most of mine were incomplete.

    Summary

    A lot of other programs work better, but you have to pay a lot of money for them. Try this before you pay for something.

    "Buy MagiCure for a about the same, get lots more!!!"

    November 25, 2009  |   By mayapcexpert

    Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

    Pros

    It does what it says

    Cons

    Excessive price. It makes no sense to pay for this type of software so much. My MagiCure can do that but much more: Magicure can recover files, images, music, software errors, windows and registry problems, defective definitions and more?

    Summary

    This product works as claimed. There are products out there that have the same feature as only one part of their package. You can get more for the same money.

    Version: File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility 3.2

    Pros

    Recovered deleted videos from my Canon Vixia Camcorder. My Windows 7. Easy Interface. I was able to use it right away without reading any complex instructions.

    Cons

    None. It works. Worth every penny.

    Summary

    In a stupid move, I deleted all videos from my Canon Vixia HG20 Camcorder's hard drive. They were priceless HD videos of my son's first Halloween. I installed File Scavenger Data Recovery Utility (I'm running Windows 7). It recovered every single video! Perfectly!! I just watched all my precious videos again. I'm so gratefulI that am wrting my first CNet review. Thank you QUETec for saving my videos and making Daddy look like a computer genius instead of a bonehead.
