    "Saved my butt!"

    June 15, 2014  |   By steve0701

    Version: Undelete 360 2.16

    Pros

    Easy to use. Nice clean interface. Works perfectly.

    Cons

    If your lost data is in various folders you might want to splurge for the paid version which maintains directory structure. File date and time is not preserved in the free version, but at least for photos you can still get this from the image properties.

    Summary

    When I told my camera to delete all photos I expected that it would only delete the dozen photos it was displaying. Unfortunately, it also found a thousand other pictures that my wife had on the card from a different camera. Undelete 360 saved the day for free. As with any CNET download, be sure to read all the fine print and decline the added software that you do not want installed.

    "Saved my hard drive!"

    June 11, 2014  |   By benjiroo

    Version: Undelete 360 2.16

    Pros

    Easy wizard-based setup.
    No spam-, spy-, or malware.

    Cons

    Free version no filtering or folder rebuilding.
    Requires equivalent free space on other media for recovery.

    Summary

    Accidentally deleted 800 GB of movies and music from a portable hard drive after turning off Recycle Bin. Never make that mistake again! Undelete 360 successfully recovered everything with minimal issues. The only files that were glitched on recovery were those that U360 noted were compromised, yet video and audio are still 99% intact even on those.

    The only problems I ran into were:

    1: You need the equivalent free space on other media in order to do the recovery. I have a second 1 TB portable HDD, so I had to clear that one, storing everything on my laptop's HDD, about 320 GB. Basically, it took a little shuffling, but in the end, it worked like a charm.

    2: The free version doesn't support rebuilding the folder tree, so I had to find another solution to sort all my mp3 music. It's a good thing that I have all the tags and filenames well-structured!

    All in all, a great program and, if you're willing to do a little legwork on your own, even the free version is quite capable.

    "There are better alternatives"

    December 2, 2013  |   By steven.perry

    Version: Undelete 360 2.16

    Pros

    It was free.

    Cons

    Took 10+ minutes to scan for deleted files to recover
    Requires paid version to filter or select multiple files for recovery
    Requires paid version to restore to original folder structure. Otherwise it dumps all the restored files into a single folder.

    Summary

    "MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition" is also free, worked great and did not have these limitations.

    "SPAM and SCAM"

    May 25, 2013  |   By Jeffenuva

    Version: Undelete 360 2.16

    Pros

    The installation changed the home pages on all 3 of my browsers to a scare page and installed spam toolbars - but they were relatively easy to remove.

    Cons

    After waiting 12 hours for it to find the files I was interested in and after picking through them to select the files I wanted, I found out that I had to spend $69 to fix them...

    Summary

    This program was a waste of my time (at best).
