VirtualLab Data Recovery

CNET 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.

    "ALL lost data was recovered"

    September 21, 2011  |   By carlos-sheppard

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 6.0.10

    Pros

    ALL lost data was recovered

    Cons

    ALL lost data was recovered

    Summary

    My testimonial would be very similar to most on this site, so I won't get into the weeds with the details. Bottom Line - After two days of trying countless tricks on the web to recover data from my corrupted hard drive, I finally gave VirtualLab Data Recovery a try. Within three hours, ALL lost data was recovered. This data was worth much, much more than the money I paid for VirtualLab Data Recovery. Thanks again for all of your efforts to make this program powerful AND easy to use!!!

    "We would gladly recommend this product"

    September 21, 2011  |   By Dotson-Maurice

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 6.0.10

    Pros

    We would gladly recommend this product

    Cons

    It did its job

    Summary

    This program is a life saver! We were unable to access a backup DVD to restore files and pics (including our daughters recent wedding pictures). We wasted our money on recover software bought at a local office supply store; it did absolutely nothing for us. We were hesitant to purchase VirtualLab Data Recovery online thinking it will be a waste of money like the other software, but after reading some reviews we decided to go ahead and are extremely happy that we did! We would gladly recommend this product to any software supplier or store! Thank You!

    "Low price comparing with it does"

    September 21, 2011  |   By Grace-C

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 6.0.10

    Pros

    Low price comparing with it does

    Cons

    Low price comparing with it does

    Summary

    I unwittingly thought the back up software provided with an external drive I purchased was minding the store until my 6 months new WD Sata HD died. I brought my machine to a highly respected & reputable PC repair company for help. After 30 hours on the bench, all they came up with was 8MB of trash & explained my only hope was a data recovery service that would cost me between $500 and $2,000 to ATTEMPT to recover anything more but not to get my hope up because he had already used the industries leading data recovery program in trying to bring back my lost files. I came across VirtualLab Data Recovery after running a search on the Net & much to my surprise not only did it find everything but I could see the contents of the folders. The best thing about it is that not only it got all my data back, it also did it at a fraction of the cost.

    "It recovered my partition"

    September 20, 2011  |   By ellen-j

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 6.0.10

    Pros

    It recovered my partition

    Cons

    Nothing so far

    Summary

    What I like about VirtualLab Data Recovery is the fact that it's job specific. It doesn't try to be everything, but it does do everything for file recovery. It got me over 5 GB of data back after one of my partitions was unrecognizable.

    "We were impressed"

    September 19, 2011  |   By M_Greg

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 6.0.10

    Pros

    We were impressed

    Cons

    We were impressed

    Summary

    After a power outage our second hard drive which we used for storage was no longer recognized by Windows - no files, no folders, no pictures, no music, nothing. Since I was out of town, my wife decided to format the drive to see if it could still be used. Then she copied some of our photos off of a CD onto the drive to prove it would work and left the rest up to me when I got home. Having little hope, I started VirtualLab Data Recovery and went to bed while it began scanning our 640GB drive. Next morning it showed a huge list of recoverable files. I told it to recover them (to our main Windows C: drive in My Documents). Later we went through the recovered files. As far as we could tell everything was there except for two photos - yes, just two! - and one garbled music track. In addition, it recovered some photos and documents we had deleted over six months before.

    "Everything to gain by having it"

    September 17, 2011  |   By CChristian7

    Version: VirtualLab Data Recovery 6.0.10

    Pros

    Everything to gain by having it

    Cons

    Everything to gain by having it

    Summary

    You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by having it. Most of us are human, we make mistakes and this can take care of those mistakes, or another app could inadvertently delete a file, whatever. Every one of us should have a file recovery method in place. VirtualLab Data Recovery is for now a no brainer. Try it.
