Editors' Review

+

Proving you can sometimes have it all, this freeware tool is not only flexible and powerful, it's also easy to use. Recover File's interface is informative and intuitive. A concise manual explains those details casual users might need brushing up on.

Operating Recover Files takes a bare minimum of steps. On program start, the app displays all drives where files that might be recovered reside. Simply select the drives you want to check and press a single Analyze button. The process isn't lightning fast, but the results are full of helpful information. Recoverable files are listed on a simple spreadsheet with Path, Status, Size, Date Created, and Date Modified information for each. It's incredibly easy to set filters to list only the files you want to see. The app lists categories of file types to further help filtering the file list. Recovery is the easiest step. Simply check each file to attempt to recover and press a single button.

Recover File rates recovery from Overwritten to Very Good, but status is only a best guess. Still, this effective freeware works so well it should be in every user's toolbox.

"It Works - But It Needs Improvement"

November 06, 2009  |  By jrs85704

 |  Version: Recover Files 3.11

Pros

The program recovered my files without trouble.

Cons

Cannot multi-select files or use the keyboard.. I undeleted over 400 files -over 400 individual mouse clicks.

The website will charge $29.95, not $24.00, plus a $4.95 extended download warranty with no way to opt-out from that charge.

Summary

It does the job efficiently, but the user interface needs an over-haul.

"An "mft" error prevents this software from working."

September 25, 2009  |  By Recover13

 |  Version: Recover Files 3.11

Pros

None. I can't even get this software to read my drive...

Cons

Apparently my C Drive has an mft error, and this software is unable to bypass it. File Scavenger Data Recovery and GetDataBack can read my drive, yet this software cannot?

"Couldn't get to work."

September 18, 2009  |  By SilverG

 |  Version: Recover Files 3.11

Pros

None; Recover Files couldn't find deleted files.

Cons

Could not recover lost files after repeatedl tries. Used Periform's Recuva instead and it worked like a charm!

Summary

For whatever reason, I could not get results after repeatedly trying Recover Files 3.11. I uninstalled Recover Files and installed Recuva, updated it and found my missing 144 photos! Recuva is a lifesaver!!!
