Editors' Review

Recover Files scans deeply, searches thoroughly, and color-codes deleted files by how recoverable they are, from Very Good to Overwritten. Recover Files isn't freeware, but when all else has failed, it's worth checking out.


Search filters: If you're not sure when a file was lost but you remember using it, you can search a specific range of dates for the last time the file was accessed, or a range of sizes, or all or part of a file name.

File types: Recover Files' sidebar displays deleted files by drives, folders, or file types. Search results are color-coded by recoverable status.

Hide files: Check boxes let us exclude temporary and overwritten files from search results.


Cost: Recover Files faces pressure from freeware recovery utilities that may not be as powerful or refined but may be able to do the job.

Trial limits: The 30-day free trial restricts recoverable files to 25 KB -- enough to show what's there.

Bottom Line

If the lost data is worth more to you than Recover Files' cost, the choice is easy. Fortunately Recover Files tells you beforehand if your files can be recovered easily or with great difficulty -- if at all.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Recover Files 3.31.
