    "Did exactly what it said it would do"

    May 2, 2007  |   By ChadCrossman

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    I tried other products on a damaged RAID1 array disk that had been formatted (full format, not quick format) and this is the only product that retrieved ALL of my files.

    I would definately recommend this to anyone who has lost data through formatting a drive, or simply deleted the data.

    "Recovery of a 500GB MyBook saved my life!"

    April 24, 2007  |   By DeckardSixFour

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    My experiance with this software started off as a very negative one...stupidly I had managed to re-partition (via XP instal) my external 500GB MyBook which houses all my backup files..a stupid error at 3am after attempting to rebuild a PC that had crashed.

    After a lot of messing about it turned out that R-Studio did not not like WD's USB controller...the system sucessfully scaned and listed all the files without issue, but was hanging as soon as I attempted to view/recover the files. However when the drive was removed from the enclosure and connected directly via SATA within 3 hours I had recovered 460GB (i.e.all the data).

    So, dont write this off if you are attempting to recover an external drive (I am sure that given time they will address this) it is probably a good idea (if possible) to connect the drive directly - its also a lot lot faster !

    The software is fairly intuitve (as much as this kind of serious application can be) and their technical support (via email) was about as fast as you can get.

    In summary, this has proved to be a fantastic "worth every single penny" product...and something that should be anyones first port of call - data recovery specialists (even though the drive was physically sound) wanted between £600-£1050 !!! to do the same thing. And whilst they may earn their money if your drive has had a mecanical breakdown or been seriously buggered by a virus or other issue that knackered the data I would still try this.

    I am interested to see how it fares with mechanical issues...but considering the ease at which it solved my problem I would try this (non-destructive option)first rather than shell out £££££.

    If anyone needs help getting a WD MyBook apart contact me and I will email you the step by step (paul@sonec.co.uk).

    Cons

    My issues were very specific and the error reporting could have been more user friendly, I would also like to see some kind of automatic save so that if you close the application (or it hangs) you dont have to scan the entire drive again.

    I would also like to see the default options set as minimum to start with better visual advise of how to "up the detail" again to reduce the scan time (a 500GB USB attached drive with the default scan options was circa 20 hours) the reduced scan when the drive was attached via SATA was 2 hours...and it did the job!

    "Great tool! Interace a bit tricky"

    April 15, 2007  |   By akdigs

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    I had formatted my hard drive and lost all the data. This software found it all. Initially I couldn't get the names of files and folder, but when I did a complete scan, it recovered all of it. Definitely recommend this!

    Cons

    The price is on a higher side!! But I guess my data was worth much more than that, so can't complain much about it.

    "Best File Recovery Software(in my opinion)"

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    The most straightforward program I had ever tried. It will quickly recover your files.

    Cons

    too expensive

    "A must have utility for DOA Hard Drives"

    November 9, 2006  |   By jshad

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    R Studio recovered all the files from a 5 year old laptop hard drive which had literally come to a GRINDING halt! None of my trusted recovery utilities worked and I've been working on PC's since 1983, (Started with a Tandy).

    The drive had been checked by two respectable computer repair shops before I received it and I was about to agree with them, "It's dead!". Then I decided to try one more time with R Studio's free trial version. The trial doesn't recover the files but it lets you know if the registered version will. And what do you know, it worked! I was able to recover the entire drive and to top it off the program is very fast. Hard drive recovery can take hours! This took minutes!

    I bought the $79 version, R Studio 3, because it recovers the broadest range of format types.

    Now I am actually looking forward to my next hard drive recovery disaster. This program has already paid for itself.

    Cons

    All the time it took to recover hard drives without this program!

    "Great Data Recovery Software"

    November 5, 2006  |   By garet300

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    it recovered all my deleted files even months before.i tried different software like pc tools file recovery,active undelete ,smart undelete etc.All are useless and recovered nothing.R-studio recovered my accidently deleted pictures and movie files in around one hour scanning.other softwares recovered some crap which are not playable.i think this software does what it is supposed to do.

    "Recovered files from an external USB hard drive."

    November 2, 2006  |   By pixd

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    I have an external USB hard drive that stored most of my photos, and the drive became corrupted and unreadable. I called many professional data recovery services, and they asked for minimum of $500 and up to $3000 per case. R-Studio Data Recovery helped to recover thousands of photos I had lost. The trial demo version of R-Studio won't recover the files, but it will let you preview the files that can be recovered. It's well worth the purchase.

    Cons

    Although the interface was simple and user friendly, the help file was not very well put together. I wished it included a wizard-like tutorial.

    "utility"

    October 31, 2006  |   By Donald.Reid

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    Fragmented files were not recovered properly, but the details of why are explained. Defragment your drives before problems occur or most software like this won't entirely help. Still I recovered the most important files without a problem after the partion was lost.

    "looks good but seems unable to recover word documents"

    October 17, 2006  |   By m1ggy

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    very good interface, lots of options (like starting and ending sector so you don't have to waste time scanning bits of disk you know are bad). good at recovering images.

    Cons

    microsoft office products appears italicised in the selection list - hence implying it cannot do it for some reason. failed to find any word or excel documents (which I know existed) on my test hard drive.

    "Waste of money"

    October 16, 2006  |   By lytzhoft

    Version: R-Studio 3

    Pros

    I cant really say what i like with this product as i never got it to work. It would find my drive. it came up with several errors after installation.

    Cons

    I would like to give it zero stars but the system wouldnt allow it.

    As stated it didnt work at all. The support didnt due much to help me out. They wouldnt even refund my money as they stated that they have a demo that customers could try before purchasing. I did try the demo but after payment and registration, the software crashed and never worked again. The support just referred to their development team. I waited almost two weeks pushing them for a solution, but nothing has happenend. So please look for other recovery tools to get the job done and dont put your money on this application.
