"For those who cares about their time and money"

September 17, 2013  |  By flower84

 |  Version: Recover Keys 6.0.2.67

Pros

Will recover license keys from remote computers or external hard drive

Cons

Does not retrieve license key for MS Office 2013, but as I was told by support, this key can't be recovered since it isn't stored in the system at all. So, any recovery tool will not show it.

Summary

In fact, people don't realize how beneficial this software actually is, until they have to reformat their machines. This program can find activation keys of installed softwares in few seconds, and allows to save them into different formats. So, you'll be able to keep this data for future and don't need to waste a lot of time looking for activation keys in unknown locations or worth purchase programs again.
So, this recovery keys tool is for those who wants to save their time and money.

"over 90% failure rate"

July 13, 2013  |  By Tethered1

 |  Version: Recover Keys 6.0.2.67

Pros

ability to save results in a variety of formats

Cons

Does not retrieve keys for Windows OEM or VLK products

Have only had one instance of so far possibly 10 scans that an Office product key was retrieved

Most products where keys are retrieved are completely incorrect.

Support even replied to an email that they do not guarantee 100% accuracy on retrieval - funny this isn't on the website

Summary

Program is joke. Save your money for all the programs Recover Keys is suppose to retrieve and go with Magical Jellybean, at least I've had slightly more luck with that program at getting correct keys for the main programs I'm interested in than this product.

I used Recover Keys to help speed up my time of pulling licenses before refreshing a customers system. Because of incorrect keys being displayed, I need to go back to the customer and have them pull original licenses wasting another day or two for them to retreive the proper information.

What also annoys me with this product is that their website says upgrades 'major upgrades' are available at a nominal cost. That's a joke. I received an email from the company with the latest upgrade (about 10 months after purchasing the version i have now) If $3 off the price that is advertised on Cnet is nominal what is the use, especially with the high inaccuracy rate.

"saved me lots of money"

March 13, 2012  |  By coachkropp

 |  Version: Recover Keys 5.0.2.58

Pros

Lets you preview search results before paying! Saved me over $40 right away by recovering my blood bowl legendary edition player key.

Cons

the only cons are the other reviews here. I almost didn't try this program because of them. All I can say though is download it and do the free search and preview and decide for yourself. I'm glad I did ;)

Summary

i purchased a new laptop and wanted to move some games to my new computer. Recover Keys was able to find all my CD and player keys on my existing computer so that I would not have to re-purchase several games for my new computer. so if you're like me and don't remember what site you purchased a downloadable game from - Recover Keys can help you out.

"Caution! Results May Vary! Be fore-warned!"

March 24, 2011  |  By sacbiz

 |  Version: Recover Keys 4.0.0.48

Pros

This software searches machines for product keys as described and returns information that it is able to locate.

Cons

Software is not intelligent enough to deliver the correct product key every time.

Summary

In my experience, I had installed a trial version first and then purchased a full version of Office Professional 2010. The key shown by Recover-Keys was the product key for the trial version of the software, not the full version of the software. The statement of this company is to "try the demo before you buy" to be sure you will get the desired result. I would definitely advise this. Run the demo software and then compare the portion of the product key shown by the Recover- Keys demo with the product key you have on the paper in front of you to be sure it is showing the correct results . . . OH WAIT! If i had the product number in front of me - I wouldn't need to buy the Recover Keys! BUYER BEWARE! Read the refund policy, try the demo first and then KISS YOUR MONEY GOODBYE because wether you get the correct information or not . . . your hard earned bank is gone for good!
