    "Best recovery software."

    May 5, 2011  |   By AAAksun

    Version: R-Studio 5.3 build 133533

    Pros

    I have tried 15 others from this website and NONE worked. Mostly they didnt restore the complete folder structure, did not see some deleted folders entirely, and, in some cases, saw the folders and not the files and vice versa. R Studio just works.

    Cons

    Its not free. But its totally worth it! As an addition to the Pros, it's regularly updated, unlike most others out there.

    Summary

    Absolutely brilliant.

    "Horrible , Terrible , Simply the worst."

    January 3, 2011  |   By rpierce01440

    Version: R-Studio 4.2

    Pros

    It was cheaper than the software I eventually had to buy because this software failed.

    Cons

    ILinux recovery is slow, and dose not work. It renames the files you are trying to find which makes recovery problematic in the best case, impossible in the worst.

    Summary

    Linux recovery does not work. Buy something else if you need linux files.

    "Top notch!"

    May 8, 2010  |   By madmart12

    Version: R-Studio 5.2 build 130701

    Pros

    Powerful, concise and full-featured data recovery software; easy to use and understand

    Cons

    Not a lot, really

    Summary

    I have personal experience with using this product in a professional setting, as well as others, and I can safely say that R-Studio blows the others out of the water, except for very specific data recovery programs.

    "Not for the novice, even after reading manual."

    April 21, 2010  |   By JRDunnJR

    Version: R-Studio 5.2 build 130701

    Pros

    There is nothing to like, can't get it to work.

    Cons

    Could not even get it to work, a waste of $80, still trying to get tech help, who is getting very frustrated with me as I don't understand what he is trying to say to me.

    Summary

    Have not been able to get it up and working. Company refuses to refund my money.
    Definitely not for someone with limited computer knowledge.

    "Found the lost data..."

    January 5, 2010  |   By jgsmith--2008

    Version: R-Studio 5.1 build 130041

    Pros

    found lost data where others would not

    Cons

    interface could be easier/more intuitive

    Summary

    When I lost my external hard drive, I downloaded quite a few programs in my attempt to recover it. All of the free ones could not find any data on the drive. Some of the pay ones could. I purchased R-Studio because it could recover the data and wasn't that expensive (one product wanted to charge by the MB, which would've cost $150 for only a small amount of data). Like I mentioned, the interface was not all that intuitive, and a little bit confusing, but I found the data I wanted to recover and it recovered about 50GB in a short amount of time. Part of the confusing interface had me recovering (I believe) deleted files, although I'm not sure how a 250GB internal drive and an 80GB external drive could generate 750GB of recovery files? Stopped after it had recovered the data I wanted and am so happy. I definitely recommend this program.

    "R-studio is the best of breed"

    December 7, 2009  |   By JacobBogers

    Version: R-Studio 5.1 build 130017

    Pros

    I tried numerous demo-versions of vendors (like D.A.R.T. from "dti-data") but all the recovery tool require knowledge of NTFS.I had no time to learn this, R-studio, is AMAZING, the wealth of information on the raw harddisk data is fantastic!

    Cons

    absoluutly None whatsoever,

    Summary

    Forgive typos cause i am not native English speaker i am from BElgium/Brussels.
    --
    The wealth of technical information displayed on the harddisk is amazing, most other tools require the harddisk or partition to have a filesystem. So if for some reason you deleted the partition info, these tools will not work, the scan on the raw data is amazingly fast, the only other tool that comes close is D.A.R.T from http://www.dtidata.com , the big drawback that is requires extensive knowledge of the NTFS filesystem to recover your data. I have no time to learn the hex-codes technical details about bootsector and MSB what not, if you dont know what you are doing you will damage your data, so these tools are a danger to use in the hands of a novice.

    But R-Studio is amazingly intuitive and goes down to the nitte gritty of the harddisk and sees and recovers everything!! Restoring files is a breeze!! Well worth my money, i would be so dipressed if i had not been able to restory almost 500 gig of information.

    You people deserve a prize!!! Thank you fellas

    "R-Studio is Excellent Software"

    October 26, 2009  |   By prismsand

    Version: R-Studio 5.1 build 130017

    Pros

    R-Studio recovered all my data. Truly amazing software.

    Cons

    None. The software does an excellent job of data recovery

    Summary

    R-Studio recovered data on my flash drive that I had accidentally formatted. I had some very important files that I needed to recover. I tried 7 other types of recovery software. Either they didn't work or they only did a small recovery of files. One program I tried showed me stuff I never had. :( Spyware?

    Trust R-Studio software it does the job that it claims to do. :) You don't have to go looking anywhere else. :)
