Editors' Review

+
The data-recovery skills of FinalData Premium are impressive, though the interface could benefit from minor improvements. Select a drive, and in a matter of minutes deleted folders, files, URLs, images, and more will be resurrected. Alas, it's difficult to tell how far into the past the program is digging. Are these files from five days ago or five years? Moreover, since all folders are displayed in boldface in your list of results, it isn't clear which are empty and which contain files. FinalData Premium is fast and powerful, however, so data sleuths may find the interface compromises worth weathering.

"Can I give a red or negative star?"

January 18, 2007  |  By bratttywun

 |  Version: FinalData Premium 2.0

Pros

Easy to use. Quick to determine that this software doesn't retrieve data from corrupted drive.

Cons

It won't read drive data from corrupted drives, when others will. Way too expensive! I have a fairly new drive w/ corrupt info, and this program doesn't even recognize if drives with corrupted files are connected. Don't waste your money, unless you have a very simple need and lots of money to waste.

"(Standard Version) Excellent product."

January 04, 2006  |  By philthee

 |  Version: FinalData Premium 2.0

Pros

(Reviewing Standard version, fewer features than Premium at a lower price).

Yes, you need to pay for it to actually recover your files, but at least you can see what would be recovered first.

No problems installing/running on Windows XP SP-2.

Recovered ALL files from two partitions that had been deleted, resized and reformatted - some 30000 files in all.

Other products I tried would only recover selected file types - FinalData found everything.

Cons

None. Although it's a little dated this product still holds its own.

"Didn't work"

November 08, 2005  |  By sjlloyd

 |  Version: FinalData Premium 2.0

Pros

Nothing

Cons

The editor's review states: "Some features limited". Yes, that's true, the trial version will not recover data from CD. Started the program, it read the CD drive and then when it came time to hit "restore" I was told that the trial version would not recover data. "Buy the software" the program stated. Talk about a tease!

"Why does it say it recovers damaged office files?"

July 18, 2003

 |  Version: FinalData Premium 2.0

Summary

I can't understand why they say it recovers damaged office files. It does not as far as I can see. I tried other demos that DID work so I know they were not unrecoverable.

"Expensive but worth it"

March 09, 2003

 |  Version: FinalData Premium 2.0

Summary

Tried every other similar type program and the demo version was able to see my files so bought the software to recover my files. Bought it and was worth the money.

"Great, but..."

January 02, 2003

 |  Version: FinalData Premium 2.0

Summary

The scanning takes too long (a 30GB HDD took 9 hours to finish scanning), and the price ($200) is too high for these features.
