""Recovers" 1 GB of unreadable junk."

January 19, 2015  |  By gospelmidi

 |  Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

Pros

It didn't cost me anything to find out that it didn't work.

Cons

A waste of time and effort with absolutely ZERO benefit.
After the free program "recovered" 1 GB of deleted files, none was readable. If Minitool is going to limit the free program to a lifetime total of 1 GB of data, at least don't count in that total files it can't recover.

Summary

Look at all the zero ("1") ratings. Why would Minitool even post this program?

"No way to know if it ever would have worked"

January 07, 2015  |  By benjiroo

 |  Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

Pros

Easy user interface
Uninstallable

Cons

Just 1 GB trial recovery?

Summary

Ran this for 24 out of an estimated 200 hours recovery time on a 320 GB portable hard drive that took a fall. The program locked up. Afterwards, couldn't run the program on the drive again. Not sure if it was too far gone or if it's just a limitation of the system? Also, 1 GB trial is just plain ridiculous, but I guess I will never know.

"Shop elsewhere.."

December 23, 2014  |  By Nightranger59

 |  Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

Pros

Finds files...

Cons

All files are anonymous.. You have to save them to HD to open them. My program would only save one file at a time... I had over 100,000 files... at 6 clicks of the mouse for each one that's over a half million clicks...

Summary

Company sent me a one-line suggestion in 48 hours that didn't work. I paid $70 and can't get it back...

"DON'T BOTHER!"

July 26, 2014  |  By forwardvision

 |  Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

Pros

None that I care to mention

Cons

It's NOT really free, it's a demo version. It only lets you recover 1GB of data, which is pointless, by today's standards!

Summary

Don't bother. It's a waste of time, in my mind!

"Excellent customer service!"

June 17, 2014  |  By firstfig

 |  Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

Pros

Practically immediate email response to the support email address! I received a very patient and detailed response to my inquiry, along with screenshot walk-thrus of how to solve my problem.

Cons

No cons to report!

Summary

Unfortunately, the problem I faced wasn't something the software is designed to resolve, but due to this misunderstanding on my part, MiniTool reimbursed my purchase in full. Amazing customer service! Thank you MiniTool!
