"Total waste of money, don't bother"

June 14, 2013  |  By StephenMarsh

 |  Version: HDD Mechanic 2.1

Pros

none that I can find, unless lightening your wallet of $140 is a *good* thing

Cons

Takes forever, finds little - then extracts it all as useless raw data. COmpletely worthless unless you want to slog through 791,000 files to find the one you're looking for, what a joke

Summary

Save you money - this software is crap. Wish I could get my money back - total waste.

"It recovered & restored my Corrupted Ubuntu Linux OS"

December 29, 2012  |  By teeteebahbah

 |  Version: HDD Mechanic 2.1

Pros

It recovered & restored my Corrupted Ubuntu Linux OS. I had really screwed up my Ubuntu OS (knowing enough about Linux to be dangerous). I tried HDD Mechanic 2.1 and it fixed it to my surprise.

Cons

So far none. Only thing that might come close it that is a bit slow or at least it seems. I guess it depends on how badly damaged or screwed up your HDD is.

Summary

It has worked so far for me.

"The only software that worked"

December 17, 2012  |  By KoyaKing

 |  Version: HDD Mechanic 2.1

Pros

Intuitive, easy-to-understand interface
Very thorough recovery
Worked when no other software would

Cons

Nothing that I could find.

Summary

I had a Maxtor 1TB hard drive go bad with no warning. I tried three paid hd recovery softwares (trial) and various free recovery software and online recovery options. Nothing worked -- I just got messages that the drive was too damaged for recovery. As a last ditch effort before I salted the drive and threw it out, I tried HDD Mechanic 2.1. It recovered 95% of the files on that bad hd and backed them up to a storage drive with a couple of clicks. I also tried it later on an old drive with WinXP on it, and it worked like a charm on that too. I signed up to CNET specifically to give HDD Mechanic this review because I'm so grateful for the software and what it did for me.
