Pros

Has the best interface of the ones I tried. Easy to use, a few clicks and its underway. Will take a long time if you scan an entire disk but support was helpful and when i used the skip button files came back of a dud usb drive in less than 30 min.

Cons

didnt have any problems with this software

Summary

Best data recovery program I tried. Purchased a key and saved files. All good.

"It didnt work"

November 05, 2012  |  By BretLeduc

 |  Version: Recover My Files 5.1.0.1872

Pros

It recovered some files (poorly).

Cons

Crashed on one drive and froze on the other.
Will let you WASTE your time running in trial on virtual machine, but will not save the files because you cant register on virtual machine.

Summary

I needed to recover two of my friend's SATA drives that were 250 and 300 GB. So first I installed this and ran it on my VMWware (Windows 7 - 64) on my MacBook Pro. The program allowed me to start the process, but I cancelled it after a couple of hours because I wanted to try a different method (ERD Commander). ERD Commander didn't recover the files either tho :(
So then I tried running this on my friend's Windows 7 laptop. On the 250 drive, it got 3/4 of the way through the 14 hour read and Recover My Files crashed with an error message. I tried it again and got the same error at the same point.
So then I tried the 300GB drive on the Windows box. It got literally to about 1% and the program locked up.
I tried a test run and cancelled out before the problems happened, so the program could then go ahead and recover some of the files, but because the run wasn't complete, the pictures were very incomplete.
BUT check this out...
I registered the program on the Windows box and then tried to register it on my Mac running VMWare (The company allows you to install on two seats). It errored out saying I couldn't install this on a virtual machine! BUT it was already running in trial mode! That means this program will let you WASTE 14 hours to find files and presumably another 14 hours to analyze the files, then it will tell you you can't use this program to save the files! BEWARE!
I gave this 1.5 stars because at least it found and recovered a few files, however poorly.

"Worked when 2 other data recovery programs didn't."

November 03, 2012  |  By uberrific

 |  Version: Recover My Files 5.1.0.1872

Pros

Finds your files in as close to original condition as possible.

Cons

None 10char

Summary

I accidentally formatted my drive and needed to get my files back. I used 2 other programs (Phoenix, Data Rescue) and they could not recover the file structure, only the loose files, which is basically pointless. About to lose hope, I ran Recover My Files and it found the lost file structure! It's a life saver.
