    "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!

    "Works Great"

    May 26, 2014   |   By feck_you_cnet

    Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

    Pros

    Windows couldn't read the hard drive, so we put the hard drive into another computer. This software recovered 99% of the files off the drive! Paid for it as we had more than 1 gig of files to recover.

    Ignore the 1 star Android reviews, THIS ISN'T FOR ANDROID...it's for Windows. NO clue why people are trying to use this to recover Android phones.

    Cons

    Interface could use some work, figured out if you select multiple files to recover you are suppose to click SAVE at the top left corner, not RIGHT CLICK (it then selects only one file to recover).

    "This software is useless in 'free' version."

    February 12, 2014   |   By Chris_Sharp_cnet

    Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

    Pros

    I'm sure that there are some very light PC users who could benefit from the 1Gb recovery limit offered by the free version of this software. But for the rest of us, 1Gb is virtually useless.

    Cons

    I'd be happy to buy the full version of this software, given the range of tools it offers. But not at the current price of £42 ($69).

    Summary

    A decent, all in one toolbox. But there are much! cheaper suites available, and you can even build a very good alternative from freeware programs. Useless in free flavour and overpriced for the retail version.

    None so far

    Cons

    "worked for me"

    January 29, 2014   |   By outragedhuman

    Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

    Pros

    recovered files from my usb/thumb drive
    offered me chance to save to another drive
    quick
    easy

    Cons

    none, it even recovered the "corrupted" files and I just deleted them - saving the good ones

    Summary

    Thank you. This was a good find. I only used it today, but was totally pleased with the way it worked! Did what I needed and the files were not "lost" forever. Saved videos, photos, and documents!

    "Recovered files but none where readable"

    December 06, 2013   |   By ScurvyDuck

    Version: MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition 6.8

    Pros

    No adware nor malware

    Cons

    None of the files recovered where useful. If there where not a 1mb for free limit, I may have found some good files. I plan on buying partition recovery software at Best Buy, costs a little less and being sold at a store implies it has been well vetted.

    Summary

    Worth a try. Advise to others. After the search there is a critical choice that may not be obvious. Select the FAT files (?) with the colorful icon, then the files such as word and excell will appear.
