    "Finally! A truly free trial."

    September 15, 2014  |   By krazyredheads

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    All I needed was to retrieve a handful of pictures off of a memory card. I tried many programs that claimed to have a "free trial", but none actually let you save the files.

    Cons

    No cons regarding this free trial program!

    Summary

    Thankful that Pandora Recovery let me retrieve the photos I needed free of charge. Many programs say free or free to try, but in reality, they let you see the files and force you to pay to save them onto your computer. It took me 10 minutes to recover the few photos that I needed and it was free! Thank you, Pandora, for coming through for us!

    "Super-easy to use. 100% free."

    August 26, 2014  |   By mikem1968

    Version: Pandora Recovery 2.1.1

    Pros

    Super-easy to use. 100% free.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet...

    Summary

    I tried to do a simple drag & drop of multiple photos from my Andriod phone to my Acer laptop. For some reason the files wouldn't transfer, and they became "corrupted" and would only show on the thumbnails. I tried everything I could think of, and everything I could find online...nothing worked except this. Not only did it recover all the pics I lost (200+), but it recovered a lot of files I purposely deleted. All on the VERY FIRST TRY!!! I simply took my memory card out of my phone, put it in my laptop, and ran the software. Very happy to recommend this!!!

    "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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No Cons I can think of.

    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!
