"30 day trial = 30 day of broken software"
Version: Undelete 2009 5.0.114
The installation wants to modify your Windows firewall but if you're running something like ZoneAlarm, like I was, its still broken. It also installs an undelete service which tries to capture any file deletion actions that occurs outside the Windows Recycle bin. This introduces a bit of performance issue as the disk is heavily used during this activity.
Further, you cannot directly undelete any files. i.e. you can't expect to download this "trialware" and expect to see if it can find and undelete any files because it is "disabled". Thanks but no thanks. Anyone expecting me to buy trialware that is broken is only targetting desperate people. Unfortunately for the developers, I am not one of them. My advice to others: Try something else.
"30 day trial misleading"
Version: Undelete 2009 5.0.114
Seemed like a nice program (saw the files I need to undelete).
Can't restore without buying; beware.
"Great idea but poor implementation"
Version: Undelete 2009 5.0.108
Easy to install, clean interface, good idea for app. (I tested Undelete Pro v5, on WinXP SP2, 1.5GB RAM, 400GB over 3 hard drives and 8 partitions.)
No indication when it is finished installing, and no explanation why it includes folders and files automatically. Worse, it included my Firefox folder with all settings for deletion. Read all docs, but didn't feel secure in emptying the modified Recyle Bin. It was good I didn't - I would have lost my main browser and it's settings and bookmarks!
