Editors' Review


Recover deleted files from your NTFS drives with this simple yet effective freeware app. Smart NTFS Recovery's dialog-size interface takes only seconds to figure out. Simply choose the drive and click Find--it doesn't get much easier than that.

Options can be set by browsing for a recovery directory or a pull-down list of preset file types. It's important to note that the speed of the recovery is completely dependent on the size of the drive. After completing a search, Smart NTFS Recovery occasionally displays ads for other products from the publisher, but click Close and you'll find the meat of this program. A simple folder and tree menu lists every found file. You can click and choose individual files to restore or you can right-click on a folder to restore the entire folder tree. Though there isn't a method to list all files, you can easily wipe selected files with a single click.

While this program can't recover files from damaged drives, it's one of the most user-friendly file undelete programs we've seen. This program's simplicity and efficiency combined with the fact that it's free makes Smart NTFS Recovery ideal for all users.

"Tried it once. It put an extra icon on my desktop."

August 24, 2007  |  By danindenver

 |  Version: Smart NTFS Recovery 3.6


I tried this once, but it didn't work for me, since my flash drive had a FAT system. At least this program did tell me that my flash drive had a FAT system, so I downloaded this publisher's other, similar, program, Smart Flash Recovery 3.6 and used it, instead.


After installing this program, I got an extra shortcut icon on my desktop as a promotion for another of this publisher's products. Granted, I might want this program, in the future, but it was slightly unnerving as it looked too much like adware and I don't recall them asking for permission to install this particular shortcut.
