Editors' Review

This clear-cut utility lets you restore lost files without bothering with disk-system details. Using Recover My Files' convenient interface, you will have no difficulty sorting files and choosing multiple items to recover. The program supports most common graphic, document, archive, e-mail, database, and financial file types, as well as others, such as MP3s. The Preview window displays text, images, and MS Office files, as well as archive contents. Recover My Files searches for just-deleted files or files stripped of their Windows-file reference information. You can focus your search on particular file types and cut search time with special options, such as starting with a specific sector, skipping to the ends of found files, or searching disk sectors instead of clusters. Unfortunately, the program doesn't estimate time remaining in an ongoing job. It does, however, offer built-in CD- and DVD-burning support, and you can run it from a floppy disk or a CD without touching the hard drive. Though it's difficult to fully assess Recover My Files' capabilities, as the demo disables saving, it seems like a solid choice for nonprofessionals.

"Life Saving Product for me!!!!"

March 02, 2007  |  By plenderman

 |  Version: Recover My Files Data Recovery 3.98


I was in a state of panic after accidentally deleting my files when trying to do a backup. I don't know anything about restoring files, so I was worried that I might mess things up worse if I attempted to do this myself. I was very anxious to get them back quick, though, and also didn't want to pay the big bucks for someone else to do it. So I gave it a shot. The software was very intuitive and I was able to restore about 90% of my files. Some of the picture files wouldn't open, but I am still VERY happy!!! It even restored all of my huge avi files (some as large as 1GB!) So, it was definitely worth the 70 bucks to me!


About 10% of the picture files won't open.

"Don't buy"

February 27, 2007  |  By SAPBR

 |  Version: Recover My Files Data Recovery 3.98


Gave it two stars only because CNet says this means "I cannot recommend this download unless it is the only one of its kind." I downloaded this program based on raves about it at another web site (can't remember which one now--but it was probably customer testimonials at the software company itself). Lesson learned, and an expensive one at that! It "recovered" so many files that I bought it -- only to discover that a majority of the files had been renamed to things like "Recovered_Word_1456.doc" and so on, and many of the so-called recovered files couldn't be opened, or contained gobbledygook (were corrupt) and couldn't be repaired. At $70, SO not worth the results.

"Average application. Poor recovery rate."

Nice GUI.


This application couldn't recover some files. Other files contain garbage. Very expensive!
