    "Wow, it worked."

    June 11, 2007  |   By achasonc

    Version: PC Inspector File Recovery 4

    Pros

    It's free. It worked as advertised. It works for Vista. I accidently deleted a file, so this was the first time I've ever tried to recover a system. As a novice, I just went around punching buttons til it recovered my stuff. Recommend reading the Help section for directions. I plan on keeping this program.

    Cons

    It did hang-up a couple of times, but I figure, it's because I didn't read the directions.

    "AWESOME, high-quality recovery FOR FREE!"

    May 30, 2007  |   By leandrahime

    Version: PC Inspector File Recovery 4

    Pros

    When you've accidentally deleted something and want it back, fast and FREE, This program is the best. There were very few problems and I was able to recover my lost data just fine and at no cost. Did I mention it was free? Yes, it's free! And it works well! What more can you ask for when you want your files back? It even gave me the option of recovering files I had deleted quite some time ago! WONDERFUL!

    Cons

    Interface is a little difficult. Just remember: click the green checkmark to go forward! Froze a few times, but restarting the program was easy and caused no errors in recovery.

    "Free, And It Works."

    April 17, 2007  |   By Brian_Watters

    Version: PC Inspector File Recovery 4

    Pros

    Lets you un-delete files that have been "permanently deleted". It only took me about 10 minutes to use it the first time, it's pretty simple.

    I was indeed able to recover many files that should have been permanently deleted. Awesome.

    On a more devious note, you can use to program to see what OTHER people could easily find on your computer (like police/customs/your BOSS). If you find that this program provides a bautiful list of your nasty old files, you should then download and run the program called "eraser". Re-run PC Inspector and hooray, your naughty list is gone and replaced with jibberish.

    Cons

    Somewhat slow. The program displays all active files in addition to the deleted files (fortunately in a separate list). I'm certainly no computer guru, but it seems like it would be much faster to just list the deleted files; we already know about the files that haven't been deleted.

    The list of deleted files contains many ghosts (even when restored, there is nothing there). However, it's my understanding that this isn't really PC Inspector's fault. So don't expect to be able to restore EVERYTHING on the list it gives you.

    "Awesome"

    March 1, 2007  |   By jm.blackwood

    Version: PC Inspector File Recovery 4

    Pros

    I was installing a new harddrive in a customer's computer and accidentally put a dynamic drive overlay on the wrong drive. Effectively erasing over 500 personal photos on the drive. This software allowed me to recover every photo and file from the drive!

    Cons

    The interface is not as intuative as it would need to be for a novice. I did not encounter any problems once I figured out what everything was for.
