Editors' review

Advances in back-up awareness and technology have made career-ending crashes much less of a worry, but rescue from them isn't cheap. For significantly less than what some recovery specialists charge, VirtualLab offers you a chance to drag your data back from the grave.

The app starts up with a helpful intro screen showing you its recovery modules: PC or Mac Partition, Deleted Files, E-mail, Photo and CD/DVD ROM. Clicking on one of those takes you to a screen with tabs for those recovery modules on the left, making it easy to switch between them. The control panel for each module is on the right, and the options change appropriately from Recover to Save as you progress through the recovery process. The lack of toolbar buttons on the top of the app makes it easy to see your files in a clear and uncluttered way.

In our tests, we were unable to test the app against data loss because we hadn't lost any data. However, we did recover files that we had deleted several weeks ago. The number of files presented to us was enormous, and VirtualLab could benefit by some advanced search routines to help identify specific files to resurrect. Still, this is a powerful recovery application and worth trying for anybody who has lost their life's work and doesn't have thousands of dollars to spend on getting it back.

    "Everybody recommend it"

    July 22, 2014   |   By wolfeclay

    Version: VirtualLab 7.0.22.84

    Pros

    I recently had a portable hard drive on my macbook that failed on me. I brought it to Best Buy and they said I'd have to find a recovery company to help recover my data as the drive was corrupted. I found several that would have charged between 500 and 3000$. I asked around and was recommended VirtualLab Data Recovery

    Cons

    It worked perfectly on Apple and it got all my data back

    "Nice software"

    July 08, 2014   |   By gingercheck

    Version: VirtualLab 7.0.22.84

    Pros

    After days of modifying some of my holyday pictures in Photoshop, I saw my lovely little daughter deleting random folders from my laptop. I cannot be mad at her so I started figuring out a way to get back all my work that was deleted. I found VirtualLab Data Recovery on the internet and gave it a try and without fail, it got all my folders back in one piece, including my modified pictures. This is a really nice little software which I'm sure will be needing in the future and would also recommend it to those who have these kind of "accidents" around their computers.

    Cons

    nothing cons

    Summary

    Of course, now I switched to the password protected screen saver so my daughter can look and press any keys at my laptop without anything bad happening.

    "Worked like a charm"

    July 07, 2014   |   By marthabrady7

    Version: VirtualLab 7.0.22.84

    Pros

    recovery, small, easy...

    Cons

    00000000000

    Summary

    After downloading some stuff off the internet I started noticing that some of my files kept disappearing and my computer was running slower than before. After finding out that I may have a virus, I downloaded an antivirus and removed it but some of my files were still missing. I then downloaded VirtualLab Data Recovery and after purchasing the full version I was able to get all of my deleted files back. I was so happy that I got through all this with no looses.

    "Great for bringing back your data"

    July 07, 2014   |   By marshall.desire

    Version: VirtualLab 7.0.22.84

    Pros

    I always think that having a backup is the best thing there is, but when my backup hard drive crashed and I had to format one of its partitions, I though that some of that data will be lost forever. I then found out about VirtualLab Data Recovery which I easily used to get all the data I needed from that formatted partition.

    Cons

    Just great

    Summary

    It's really good software which I already stored on my backup hard drive as I am sure it will come in handy in the future
