"Can I rate it with a zero star"
none that I think of
claims that it can recover your files but only give you corrupted files in the end
I used the trial version to see what can be recovered from an external HD that I accidentally reformatted. I tried a couple programs and this is the only one that "claims" that it found most of my files. Although this app cost a lot more than some of the other applications, I went ahead and purchased. It copied my files to my computer but none of them can be opened. I tried different files of different types, pdf, mp3, xls, etc, and none of them can be opened. Even txt files are corrupted. Out of the 40GB of data that it recovered, I didn't find a single file that's not corrupted.
Bottom line, it's ok if it tells you that it cannot recover your files, but I think it's wrong to claim that it can recover your files, lures you to buy the software and only get corrupted files back.
