"I was looking for more, but I'd recommend this download"

December 31, 2009  |  By rvnw

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

I couldn't find about 50 pictures on an SD card from this Christmas. This program recovered about 10 (so far) including a 5 minute video. Even for an older program, it did a decent job, better than disk digger which recovered none of the lost pics.

Cons

Took a long time to scan the card.

"SAVED ME!!"

December 10, 2009  |  By paradelia

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

Fast and easy to use. I was able to watch all my photos magically re-appear within minutes. It was a relief.

Cons

The program quit before it finished recovering all the files. If I weren't so meticulous, I may have missed that some pictures needed to be recovered a second time. Other than that, all else was a digital miracle.

Summary

Saves money and heartache. What more do you want?

"A quick, easy and free solution to file recovery. A+"

July 10, 2009  |  By elbiera

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

After a quick install, the program chugged along for about 15 minutes to recover around 700 photos. Well worth the wait.

Cons

No Mac compatable version.

Summary

Accidentaly deleted pictures from a CyberShot. Before taking any new photos I tried several file recovery programs, some wanted to charge me $40 or face having product watermarks on my recovered photos. Nothing like that here, this program recovered all 700 of my photos I new I lost and some previously intentionally deleted. Thank you!

"Slow and inaccurate"

June 27, 2009  |  By crisoco

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

This program could not be tested thoroughly to really give any positive rating.
It was not accurate or fast enough to continue with the test.

Cons

It is very slow.
It is not very well set up.
It does not find all the files on the selected drive.
Always an error message when selecting type of scan.
The Convar site has to be translated by Google.

Summary

The program was stopped at 100.000 sectors when searching my hard disc otherwise it would have taken all day to complete the scan.
It found no jpg deleted files whatsoever.
When checking with Detection Master there was one deleted file on the hard drive which it did not find at sector 60.000.

"This software ROCKS!!!"

June 26, 2009  |  By rraghuna627

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

Two words - it works! I had reformatted my SD card in March and kept taking pics through June. My HD crashed and I lost the pics I saved to my PC. I used PC Inspector directly on the SD card and amazingly enough, recovered ALL the files!

Cons

It doesn't let you select files to recover - its either all or nothing...but this is a minor inconvenience in my opinion.

Summary

I would strongly recommend this product over the commercially available products. At least, try this before you pay for the package or service to recover. Good luck and I hope you get as lucky as I did!!

"Wonderful picture recovery product"

May 25, 2009  |  By zzzBilly

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

After apparently having lost family pictures on the XD camera card, PC Inspector Smart Recovery recovered everything I asked for. God bless you for this free help.

Cons

It was a bit slow, but who's complaining when you recover family pictures without cost

Summary

Quality freeware like this is a credit to Convar. And a real help to my family. Thank you very much

"Did ok, but not the best"

April 21, 2009  |  By CanaryABCcom

 |  Version: PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.43

Pros

nice and easy to use setup

Cons

recovered 92 of 207 corrupted files from my SD card which was more than most other programs of the kind but less than the 173 recovered by Art plus 3.1. Did ok, as it recovered 4-5 photos Art Plus couldnt though.

Summary

Its an Ok application and got a good bunch of my images back.
