Editors' review

Accidentally deleted your files? GetDataBack Data Recovery can track them down--for a price. It even works with corrupted drives and those not recognized by Windows. This version only recovers files from FAT drives, but it does offer a search tool for quickly locating a file by its date, name, or size.

If you suspect your actual disk is about to bite the dust, you can create a drive image to use during recovery. The utility can't make rescue discs, however, so if you want to do that, you'll need to build yourself a bootable Windows PE disc and add GetDataBack Data Recovery to it--the publisher's Web site has instructions.

Although the application proves quite adept at locating deleted files, and you can view their contents, the demo won't recover them. We can't vouch for how well this core feature works. GetDataBack Data Recovery seems worth trying, but if you actually want to recover any lost work, this demo won't do you much good.

    Version: GetDataBack 4.32


    This software did nothing for me.


    The software claims to be able to identify a hard drive even if windows does not recognize it. Understandably, I wouldn't expect this feature to work if the drive is broken. Unfortunately, the feature doesn't even exist for drives that should be able to be recognized. In addition, when I pointed out the false advertisement to their support staff, I received a response from a person named Uwe ***** telling me not to lecture him. Needless to say, he and his software were useless.


    The software was useless and their customer service was horrible.

    "Worked great for external USB HDD with busted MFT"

    Version: GetDataBack 4.32


    How easy can it get? Windows 7 can't see my USB HDD. It appears the master file table (MFT) is busted. I download the NTFS version, install it. It shows me my files and the folders using secondary MFTs. I buy the licence with credit card, get the code immediately, register the code in the software and IMMEDIATELY I restore my precious files. It worked beautifully for me. Your mileage may vary of course. Example : I restored 60Gb in ten minutes (a USB 3 drive). I think if your drive is damaged, it could take longer, I don't know. Maybe I'm just lucky (sort of).


    79$USD is a bit expensive. Whatever. Give me back my files please...... :-) Beautiful software is worth it. Still, I took a half star off.


    If your drive fails and you haven't any physical damage on the drive, don't attempt to write anything on it. Just stop. Use this software and it can help you, especially on an external device.

    Arguably if your C: drive with Windows boot is damaged, then it can get trickier, with or without this software. Make sure you have a WindowsPE bootable solution to be able to restore files. Good luck!

    "Didn't find the data I was looking for"

    December 06, 2012   |   By michaelrhcnet

    Version: GetDataBack 4.32


    Easy to install and use


    On an old IDE drive, program didn't find anything, although disk had not been wiped. Saw only 7.9GB partitition on 80GB drive, though all of disk had been used.


    Easy to try; unsure utility.
