"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.
