    "Did not recover all my data"

    August 13, 2014  |   By Garryveeer

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    Recovered ALL deleted files (Bad, overwritten, good and very good)

    Cons

    Did not recover all my data.

    Summary

    The software performs expeditiously well on my extrnal hard drive of 100 GB. As the drive is quite old and computer couldn't able to detect it easily and so as your software, I can't blame the software for its incompetency in detecting failing hard drive.

    "Easy to use - Recovered everything!"

    June 11, 2014  |   By ckrysiak

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    Easy to use
    35 minutes to recover 1300 photos
    Free

    Cons

    None that I encountered

    Summary

    I accidentally reformatted my 32GB Sandisk while it was in my digital camera. PANIC! I tried to stop it in the middle but was too late, it said "No Image to Display." MORE PANIC! I popped the disk in my PC, downloaded Pandora, and VOILA! All of my 1,345 pictures were recovered and saved to my computer in less than 1 hour. Lifesaver!

    "It thinksI'm using Windows 95"

    April 29, 2014  |   By dmshank

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    Can't tell, can't install

    Cons

    Won't recognize Windows XP

    Summary

    I'm running Win XP Home Edition, SP3. When I try to run the installer, Pandora says I can't run it on Windows 95! I have no idea where THAT came from! I'll try something else, then.

    "Don't get scammed for money!"

    January 17, 2014  |   By SlimJim812

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    FREE! Simple, quick, effective. Can preview files to be recovered.

    Cons

    No Cons I can think of.

    Summary

    This was my 4th program to try and I will keep this one. The others sucked or wanted money after claiming to find hundreds of files that I could not preview.

    "Excellent Product!"

    January 10, 2014  |   By Bons0209

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    So easy to use! Really Works! Great wizard.

    Cons

    Some pictures came out grainy once recovered.

    Summary

    We were devastated when our pictures were accidentally deleted from our phone. After doing some research for recovery software, we elected to download Pandora. We are so happy that we did...all of our pictures were recovered! Though some of them were a bit grainy, and a small percentage had a part of the picture missing, we are thrilled that we were able to get any of them back. Thank you Pandora!

    "Works fine, but installs malicious adware"

    December 21, 2013  |   By bdarling1

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    It only took a few seconds for it to recover a photo I had deleted off my flash drive.

    Cons

    During installation I unchecked two boxes requesting Conduit Search be installed and did not allow the installation of an add-on. It installed these anyway and a nightmare began. It installed a difficult to remove malicious adware called Conduit Search. It is an adware program that changed my browser home page and default search engine to search.conduit.com on all three of my browsers - IE, Firefox, and Google Chrome. I had to Google to find out how to get rid of it. Kaspersky did not prevent it from being installed and did not catch it when I did a full system scan.

    Summary

    This is not safe. CNET should remove it and look into how many other Pandora downloads are not safe.

    "It works like a charm!"

    December 7, 2013  |   By BEECHG

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    Works really great!

    Cons

    None that I'm aware of.

    Summary

    Pandora Recovery really works great! I had deleted photos from my SD card before I was finished with them. In a panic, I went to CNET and found Pandora. Downloaded, installed it and got all of my photos back in no time.

    "Appears to work fine but the malware . . ."

    November 28, 2013  |   By ScurvyDuck

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    Recovered data quick and may have been as thorough as any . . . I did not compare with any other.

    Cons

    Warning, Pandora will download the malware Connect DLC 5, it is a spy software and difficult to remove

    Summary

    Not worth it
