    "STUNNING PRODUCT!"

    September 17, 2012   |   By wlucas3

    Version: Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0

    Pros

    Easy to understand, easy to use, a wide variety of tools. It works!

    Cons

    Don't really have any.

    Summary

    I wish I could say this was the first time I corrupted my boot record, I wish I could. But this one truly wasn't my fault. I was updating the BIOS on a GigaByte MB, because I got an email from them suggesting I do it - so much for registering your products. I used their utility and did everything I was asked, and couldn't reboot the machine when I was done. I know, why update the BIOS on an operating machine. Answer: They promised more fan control and temp sensing. Anyway, I tried all the standard Windows recovery tools using the install disk that never seem to work for me, and all I got was the usual switch from a BootMng error to a Invalid Partition Table error. This time I got the idea to come to CNET and look for a recovery download, found RescueKit. Followed their instructions, went to my spam folder and C&P my Product Key and SN, burned my CD, popped it in my dead machine, used a bunch of the utilities, rebooted to the wonderful sounds of Windows 7 Ultimate filling my monitor. It took me longer to write this quick review than it did to solve my problem using RescueKit.

    In reading some of the other reviews, I'm guessing many of these people may not have been using the right tool for the job at hand; AND a lot of folks out there don't know to check their spam file for a return email in a situation like this - or they just don't feel compelled to read the instructions.

    In short, SUPER product if your machine won't boot, or you can't get to Windows to run Restore or something of that nature.

    "Where on earth you can find the prod code & sr no.?"

    April 17, 2012   |   By Araha

    Version: Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0

    Pros

    Unable to install

    Cons

    Product Code and Serial No. are not available. So, no installation!

    Summary

    When the downloaded application file is double-clicked, the user is directed to their website for accessing product code and serial number. But, you are registered for receiving their regular emails instead, to let you know of their product updates, discounted offers, news, etc. After registering you receive an email which is useless when one does not find what the registration was done for. Are they reliable ?

    "Wrong Program"

    July 03, 2011   |   By auddii

    Version: Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0

    Pros

    I do not have the correct program to know.

    Cons

    Wrong program downloaded.

    Summary

    I attempted to download Rescue Kit 11, instead Power2Go downloaded to my computer. I need to recover corrupt files from an external hard drive. I do not need a program to burn CDs. This is useless.

    "Have to find the link to register.."

    May 29, 2011   |   By bmax200

    Version: Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0

    Pros

    Does everything as advertised
    Easy way to fix the mbr - Better than booting from Windows CD and going to the repair command console
    Recovery of deleted partitions
    Free version usefull

    Cons

    Have to find the link to register for the Product Key and SN.

    Summary

    Works great if you don't need to do a full - image recovery (or don't have it) or you need to undelete a partition. The full version allows you to migrate your hard drive to another hardware platform. (The free version does not enable this feature so I can't comment on how well it works)
    Only complaint is that they forgot to put a link to the registration site in their setup program.
    Just go to:
    http://www.paragon-software.com/registration/rk-free11.html
    to get the producy key and SN emailed to you.

    "Free User Doesn't Come with Serial"

    May 27, 2011   |   By ldinh09

    Version: Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0

    Pros

    Haven't gotten to use the program

    Cons

    Cannot test out the demo.

    Summary

    Downloaded the program after registering at the main site and after trying to run the "free demo", it asks for a registration number and serial key, which I obviously do not have. Tried calling for support but it costs money to get support. This is for personal use.
