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.

I tried a number of tools to get this data back and VirtualLab Data Recovery was the only one that would do more than just show me some of the lost folders

"I recovered deleted files"

May 12, 2014  |  By martinezzzzz

 |  Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 5.5.17

Pros

Recovered deleted files, same file structure

Cons

I think you should develop a deletion program that even YOU cannot recover :)

Summary

Wow!!! I have tried to wipe my hard drive with several software using multiple algorithms only to find that your VirtualLab Data Recovery could recover it. I guess I am not sure if this is a curse or a blessing ;) You guys did a great job!!
