    "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.

    "Does not work with Win8"

    February 04, 2013   |   By gnugs

    Version: Recover Keys 6.0.2.67

    Pros

    Handles quite a few products very well.

    Cons

    Doesn't work with Win8 Pro whether you are using retail or OEM Win8Pro.

    Summary

    Don't buy unless you try. You will not get a refund.

    "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!
