Editors' review

Remo Recover Free Edition is great at finding lost files, but it only lets you recover a rather small amount of lost data in the free version and makes you wait a while to do it.

Remo Recover Free Edition sports a nifty interface that looks like it was made for Windows 8's smooth, tiled layout. In order to find your lost files, the program has to create a disk image file and then scan that file separately to find your lost data. The whole process took about an hour for a 250GB drive that was one-third full. The program found some lost files, but it only let us recover 1GB of them -- which isn't much if you're looking for lost music, video, or photo files. You have to upgrade to the paid version to get more. We were able to preview the lost files prior to recovery and sort them based on their name, size, date, and file type. Apart from being able to efficiently restore files on a hard drive, the program supports a multitude of other devices you can restore files from, such as external USB drives, FireWire drives, memory cards, digital cameras, and mobile devices. Recovering files deleted from the command prompt, as well as those deleted using "Shift + Delete" is no problem, either. Remo can also help in situations where you lost files due to an improper PC shut-down, too -- something that can happen even to the best of us. The program does take time to search for lost or deleted files, but you can always save the current recovery session and continue at a later time.

Even though Remo Recover Free Edition is super limiting, it can still be useful if you need to urgently retrieve some important files that you lost. If you need to retrieve more than 1GB worth of data and don't mind paying for it, you should look into upgrading to one of the paid versions of this program.

    "Initial scan takes ages but gives positive results."

    February 03, 2014   |   By Cathy-W

    Version: Remo Recover Free Edition 1.0.0.15

    Pros

    + Attractive interface and easy navigation.
    + Light weight, doesn't bog down the computer.
    + File size is restricted to 1gb but it delivers on its promise.

    Cons

    - Initial scan seems like forever but the file preview it provides alone makes up for the wait.
    - 1gb limitation is horse-crap! Increase the limitation to atleast 10gb!

    "Remo Recover Free Edition is tailor-made for Windows."

    December 12, 2013   |   By IssacArkady

    Version: Remo Recover Free Edition 1.0.0.15

    Pros

    * Its claims are justified. Recovers a diverse number of files.
    * Takes quick action.
    * The recovered files were in good condition.

    Cons

    Recovery is limited to a particular size.

    Summary

    Data recovery is a possibility now, thanks to Remo Recover Windows and many other recovery softwares. Data recovery softwares,I have used them all. But the most pleasant and best recovery software that I used was Remo Recover for Windows. I have the media collection (paranoid about my music collection) and its freakin perfect. Used the Remo Recover Free Edition on a trial basis and its pretty awesome too.

    Kickass software, highly recommended.
