"Fine Data Recovery Methods"

August 12, 2014  |  By Morisohne

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery Software 7.2 build 155117

Pros

It recovers separately photo, email and other files, During data recovery process i faced some technical problem so i used another data recovery tool from
www.flash-video-soft.com/data-recovery/. It recovers instantly all data.

Cons

I have used this tool but it taking long time to recovery process

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. Not sure weather the software can performs at the same speed on larger capacitive hard drives, can say of 1 TB in size.

"Smoothly worked for me, all my data recovered"

October 20, 2013  |  By ivanhoeve

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery Software 7.0 build 15411

Pros

i recovered all my data. My Lenovo laptop with a WD HDD stopped booting Windows 7, neither in safe mode. Rebooting from last good Windows did not worked, I took the disk and connected via USB to other laptop and the partitions where not recognized. I tried with Power Data Recovery 6.8 and Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery and both failed to recover my data. Demo version of RStudio read all the filesystem folders structure in the first attempt. You can open each folder and even preview your photos and documents. I bought the license (worth the money). Then marked what I wanted to recover and clicked Recovery Marked, choose a destination folder in other disk and that is it. You get your folder structure saved. Y recovered all my data. I did not used their support, neither more advanced thigs (except scan I explain in cons)

Cons

I am not a saavy IT guy, only know the basics. Once I bought the license I did an scan (even I saw my files in the demo without scanning). It took almost 4 hours for a 500 gb disk (USB connected). After that, RStudio showed many possible partitions and suggested with green color good candidates to be your partitions, none of them were the right ones. I clicked the one that I initially used (before scanning)and saw all my files. So, try first without scanning, just do Open Files in a good partition candidate you saw (in my case I had 2 partitions 100 and 400 GB, the second one was more probably my data so I took it). If you have to scan do not give up if the greens do not work, then try to see important files in each partition, if you can preview them then you can recover them. The SW seems to have many advanced features for more knowledge people. I think if you start to navigate in the options you can get lost. You can keep in the first screen and still recover your data.

Summary

This did the magic recover for me, after failing with other well rated products. If you are looking for free software this is not for you. It does not have features to fix your file systems, at least for dummies, but you can recover your valuable data to other disk and then do a fresh install of Windows, as I did. The good thing is that you do not have to pay the license upfront. You can download a demo, and check if RStudio can allow you to preview your files, only buy if it works for you.

"An intermediate recovery App"

September 26, 2013  |  By mnsamuels81

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 6.1 build 152025

Pros

It is a good tool to recover data after all kind of disk disasters. I liked its search option, which made data recovery task very easy. I recovered my data, which is lost due to accidental formatting of the hard drive. I recovered up to 350 GB data with the help of this tool.

Cons

Regarding data recovery, this software is quite good, but it is very complex to use. I am also not satisfied with its technical support facility as it was not available for 24/7.

"Phenomenal Data Recovery Software"

August 05, 2013  |  By cnetsjf

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 6.1 build 152025

Pros

The Mac product created an image and recovered files (preserving directory structure and file names!) from a failing hard drive and was able to skip unreadable segments of the hard drive in the process. Almost as important was the company's decision to permit you to make an image using their Demo software. Once the image was successfully created, purchasing the license was a foregone conclusion! Every other data recovery product I tried stopped in the middle of recovery and said to use Chkdsk to fix the drive. By the time I found R-Studio, the drive would not mount on three different XP systems, due to the read errors. Since it couldn't be mounted, Chkdsk could not be run. Even though the drive would not mount, I was able to see the partition containing my data using an Acronis boot disk from Disk Director, but Acronis could not copy the partition or clone the disk due to the unreadable file segment errors. Drive failed in the middle of a backup. WD My Book 250GB drive 10yr old

Cons

R-Studio's product is hard to find. I googled every possible combination of "data recovery", "unreadable file segment" etc. and just happened to read a thread by a school teacher who was desperately looking for help in recovering data from his failed drive. He was eventually told to take the drive to a specialty shop, but he was nice enough to follow up, give thanks for the help, and indicate that he no longer needed help, since R-Studio had done the trick for him.

Summary

Much better than any product I've used. Recovers data from unmountable partition. Automatically skips unreadable file segments. Preserves file names and folder structure. Demo policy is tremendous.

"Buyer Beware!!! Spend Your Money Elsewhere"

June 19, 2013  |  By halhoyle

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 6.1 build 152025

Pros

Relatively fast at finding only files that are corrupted and cannot be opened.

Cons

Bought this software within the last ten days (June 2013) and ran it on a 500G external (non-OS) disk drive, with respect to which I had already run 3 other recovery programs. This piece of .... (IMHO) did recover lots of files and folders only a couple dozen of which were not corrupted and could be opened. The other recovery software produced thousands of usable files and several gigs of recoverable information.

"Recovered 600GB of RAW"

February 25, 2013  |  By joeddoe

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 6.1 build 152025

Pros

Comprehensive capability. Good User Interface. Lots of support resources. Very effectively recovered file system and variety of files in ntfs partition that had gone to RAW.

Cons

Lacks data recovery wizard, but otherwise easy to use. Spent $70 on another product before discovering R-Studio.

Summary

Tried three or four other data recovery products that all failed miserably before finding R-Studio (relabeled as Seagate File Recovery Software). Worked right out of the box, where the others had failed.

"Only file retrieval you will need"

February 17, 2012  |  By Mossyj

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 5.4 build 134577

Pros

It works. It brings back folder structures and file names where others do not. It is relatively cheap considering how well it performs. Runs well on machines with limited specs.

Cons

Not free. I did have some issues running it on Vista, but really I blame Vista.

Summary

After paying much more for another product that retrieved almost nothing, and what was retrieved was basically a nameless pile of files, I was relieved to find R-Studio. It brought back thousands more files complete with folder structure and original names. For files that it couldn't retrieve all the name information it still brought back what it could. If I never use it on another drive it will have more than paid for itself just by this one use.

"Ok software, INSANELY HORRIBLE Customer Service"

December 06, 2011  |  By azjazz

 |  Version: R-Studio Data Recovery 5.4 build 134372

Pros

The software generally works OK, though it is sometimes hard to determine on the screens what data/files are important, and what are not important.

Cons

Customer service is definitely *not* important to them. "Screw the customer" is pretty important to them, though.

I purchased R-Studio to recover data from a bad drive. Then, a little over a year later, I needed to recover a totally dead system that didn't even boot up from a corrupted hard drive. I looked into a back-up image to get the R-Studio boot disk creator program to start my recovery. However, I didn't have the boot disk installer available on that image.

I called the R-Tools Customer Support to have them send me a link to the boot disk installer (which was part of the R-Studio package I had purchased). However, I was told by the R-Tools representative that my 1 year warranty had expired the month before, and that I needed to purchase R-Studio *AGAIN* to be able to get to the same software I had ALREADY PURCHASED! No negotiation.

So, I left R-Studio (cursing up a storm), and purchased Active@ File Recovery Pro. It's cheaper, quicker, and better.

Good riddance, R-Studio!
