this guy is a beast. i tried pririforms recuva as well as fixing my recovered jpegs with stellar but this guy..no problems. HE JUST RECOVER EVERYTHING FROM A YEAR AGO TO NOW. WOW JUST WOW. everything i lost PLUS pics from the past are now with me just awesome.
the deep scan is awesome but takes 10 hours...thats why its deep! very great trade though, i have pics worth mooore than 10 hours
BE THE IT HERO IN THE COMMUNITY! SAVE LIVES SAVE DATA
I tried 4 other free recovery softwares and one trial version of paid software. All other free programs recovered up to 14 files. Paid software detected 170 files (it was not possible to recover them due to the trial version).
PC Inspector Smart Recovery recovered all 210 files.
Nothing for the moment.
PC Inpecto, my daughter is delighted because I managed to recover all of her "lost" pictures. I am delighted because of my doughter hug!
Free and really works. I was able to recover gigabytes of pictures (Canon RAW files) that even some paid solutions could not retrieve.
It's not very user-friendly (you have to run it as an Admin user, otherwise you get an random error) and if you forget to provide the final "\" for the destination folder, the folder name will turn into the suffix for the file names), but not a deal breaker. I also found it very slow (took like 12 hours to scan a 8Gb SD card) but hey, it's free and these things are time consuming anyways.
Don't look at the paid options!
Very easy to use; it recovers all lost photos
Need to start with right click and RUN as an adminstrator; Very slow
Thank you Convar for PC Inspector Smart Recovery and it makes my day so much happier!
dont know, program wouldnt run
same problem as listed by reviewer in december,company apparently made no attempt to correct.
cant use it. good thing i passed on all the bloatware that was offered
Program would not launch correctly after installation
Program would not launch ("run time error 339 component 'gif89.dll' or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered a file is missing or invalid")
If the program would have launched properly, I would have been able to give a better review. Unfortunately, their installer makes incorrect assumptions about the dll files that are currently on the system already.
Lost the first 3 days pics from my holiday, including irreplaceable wedding shots, they simply vanished from my SD card, PC Inspector brought them all back in perfect condition! I am overjoyed, thought I'd lost them for good!
It does take a while to do it's thing, but hey, an hour or two waiting is a small price to pay to get your precious pics back.
There's a reason this is rated so highly, it worked brilliantly for me, and I can't thank the creators enough.
Recovers a lot more files than other software (e.g. Recuva).
User interface is not the clearest! But not incomprehensible, it is OK.
Not the fastest recovery, but do you want speed or more of your files back?
I tried a couple of other utilities (Recuva and others), and PC Inspector brought back more files. A LOT more. If you are recovering from a hard disk, expect it to take overnight or more. Recovery from a 120GB SSD took 3 hours. I would take some of the negative comments here with a grain of salt- for example, I did not have to select file types one by one, it just recovered everything it could.
it recovered something, but slowly
- you must choose one file type at a time to recover (!). this means you'll have to run the scan repeatedly just to find all the different types of files you're looking for...where other programs let you recover whole classes of files - all images (jpg, gif, ...) all movies (mp4, mov, ...)
- very slow scanning (1/2 to 1/3 as fast as other free card recovery software
- counterintuitive UI that was obviously (poorly) translated
don't waste your time, unless this s/w somehow recovers files others won't.
I had all my project pictures restored beautifully!and completely :)
Took a while and some pictures were 'meshed together' (half of one and another picture) which can be deleted after it's done.If you're desperately needing your pictures,you can get over it and you will be freakin' happy!
I got the 'Error 339' ...come to find out that before you open the program,you have to right click and select 'Run as administrator' and BAM! you open it!(make sure your memory card is in before you open the program)
