Editors' review

This utility provides data-recovery solutions for digital and flash media. OnBelay has an easy-to-use interface with a main window for displaying connected removable devices and four tabs for device information and recovery tools. This program can provide complete information about the capacity, volume, and drive name for selected devices. The program's recovery tool easily recovers images and sound files from removable drives and lets the user store recovered files in folders on the hard drive. OnBelay's backup-and-restore option is very useful in creating backups for media files and transferring them to another media, letting you create multiple backup copies. Other features--such as duplicate, restore, and format--proved to be useful in securing media files. This program, which has a 15-day trial, is suitable for all digital camera or camcorder users concerned about the stability of their media files.

    "was a lifesaver"

    February 10, 2010   |   By 1sic_chic

    Version: OnBelay 2 build 012

    Pros

    Did what I wanted it to

    Cons

    none that I could see

    Summary

    I needed it to reformat a fried USB stick and it did so where other software failed. I didn't try to recover files, but I wonder if other commenters had problems due to limitations in the trial version. Note it states a limit of 5 photo recoveries.

    "Good at formatting a problem flash drive"

    June 15, 2009   |   By jwduda

    Version: OnBelay 2 build 012

    Pros

    Was able to format my flash drive when Windows would not.

    Cons

    Didn't seem to work too well at file recovery.

    Summary

    I had a Flash drive which contained a number of corrupted files. I wasn't interested in recovering them; I just wanted to delete them and/or reformat the drive. Windows (XP) would not let me delete the corrupted files, nor would it format the drive or repair it. Within about 10 seconds of starting up OnBelay, I had the drive cleaned up and ready to go. So, that was great. Out of curiosity, I popped in a different Flash drive and checked to see what files OnBelay could recover. It was able to identify a bunch of deleted files, but I couldn't get it to recover any of them. So, that was less great.

    "It does not work"

    September 01, 2008   |   By wrs98

    Version: OnBelay 2 build 012

    Pros

    nothing to report

    Cons

    It does not see the corrupted files. Therefore nothing to recover. Instead, I used Recovery Manger V1.5 and it worked.

    Cons

    I used to use this on my old XP laptop, but even after all this time my money has been wasted as it still does not work with Windows Vista

    "This product is useless"

    January 13, 2007   |   By londonITgirl

    Version: OnBelay 2 build 012

    Cons

    This program couldn't even find the photo files that still existed, let alone the ones that were missing. Don't waste your time with it, at least for recovery purposes.
