"Forces you to buy license and then craps out"

September 05, 2014  |  By supervillain

 |  Version: IsoBuster 3.4

Pros

Found the files on the drive.

Cons

I KNOW what files are on the drive. I need them off the drive. But you cant get a sample off without purchasing the license. Then it does... nothing. Files can't be recovered. Obviously the program should know that before I was forced to buy the license. Customer support is by email with a two-day lag. Think about how that would work for a second. Called billing right away and they were rude and dismissive.

Summary

Garbage.

"Tries very hard to do what it says on the tin"

December 19, 2012  |  By em6001

 |  Version: IsoBuster 3.1

Pros

The paid version has done much better than any of the other free stuff I tried (and one I had to pay for). The others just copied a CDA file (I understand it as some kind of shortcut) whereas isobuster has actually managed to recover some of the full audio files on my cracked cd.

Cons

It hasn't been able to recover all of my data, but any recovery from a cracked cd is nothing short of a miracle!

The only real con is that I don't have a lot of computer knowledge and trying to figure out how it all works and what the options mean takes a little bit of time. I suspect if I really understood what I am doing I would be able to get a lot more use out of the program! However, explanations for the basics are there in the help section so with a little bit of perseverance it's ok.

Summary

Good program that works despite the challenging conditions I have provided it with! I still don't fully understand what the difference is between the free and paid versions as when I tried to use it it asked me to pay anyway. The paid version is worth the money though!

"Not for Hard Disk recovery"

October 05, 2012  |  By gthaigh

 |  Version: IsoBuster 3.0

Pros

Sorry - I bought this product for one purpose, and it didn't work.

Cons

Don't buy this product for hard disk recovery. It is very slow and then crashes, even on small hard disks. Other HD recovery products worked fine. I cannot comment on use of this product for recovery of other media.

September 06, 2012  |  By Balders_of_Arabia

 |  Version: IsoBuster 3.0

Pros

Does what it say on the box
Quick
Easy

Cons

A button on the top to say "Extract these" would be nice, otherwise not found a 'con' yet

Summary

I bought and burned a pack or DVD+R by mistake and can't read them in any of my 4 readers, but this programm recovered my 'lost' data first tiime. Will buy it come pay day!

"VIRUS DON'T DOWNLOAD!!!"

January 18, 2012

 |  Version: IsoBuster 2.8.5

Pros

I've used it before and it was great! An Awesome tool! I lost it after a format and wanted back badly! Definitely a tool that's irreplaceable.

Cons

VIRUS! I downloaded it and AVG popped up with the message calling it a Trojan Horse SHeur3.CEZS. Even if it's a false positive why take a chance with this product!

Summary

I checked it also with Trojan Remover and Malwarebytes with both saying Ok. I just couldn't take a chance even if it's a false positive and neither should anyone else.

"A free iso file mounter that does not mount iso files"

November 15, 2011  |  By Lundse

 |  Version: IsoBuster 2.8.5

Pros

Installed quickly, loads of options.

Cons

The free version does not let you mount an iso file. This is what the program is advertised as doing.
There are free tools out there that do this - this one costs money, while claiming its free version does it.
