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.

    "NOT freeware, other DL site said same thing, *** cnet?"

    Version: Smart NTFS Recovery 4.2


    Pros are Im sure it works great once you pay for it.


    I can understand a software company charging for something they've put hard work into, but they and no other download site should be listing this as freeware.


    Bottom line is this is the second program I downloaded at ANOTHER download site and I though to myself "well cnet won't pull that on me!" Then I found this here in their freeware section. They proved me wrong for the first time in almost 10 years. Come on cnet check this stuff out before you catagorize it.

    Version: Smart NTFS Recovery 4.2


    It seemed like a quick download at first.......then you can click on desk top icon it leaves behind to get started......


    after clicking on icon it takes you to their site to offer you the "FREE" service...wonder if that is all it put into my P.C.??? time to remove this FREE..NOT ware


    Don't should be "free to try" WITH strings attached, it's listed as FREE
