    "Amazing free software, and works a treat!"

    October 28, 2012  |   By Chipimoli


    It's free, and does it's job great. Doesn't take long at all to find files that have been deleted (but takes quite a long time to recover them, but quite frankly, if I'm getting my files back, I don't care in the slightest).


    How to work it and what everything means and such isn't great, such as the red, yellow and green dots... didn't quite understand what they were. But, it's pretty self-explanatory. Would help more if it came with Support and instructions but it's not too hard to use.


    I love this program. I clumsily delete stuff all the time and when I'm panicking thinking I've lost everything, this program is AMAZING. Highly reccomended, great for free.
