    "Excellent data recovery software"

    May 26, 2014   |   By Haley4563

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Standard 5.1

    Pros

    The trial version is really free to download here.
    I have been given four file type recovery modes to scan my drive. The "All" recovery mode has found most of original files from my RAW drive.
    I can use this data recovery software easily, though I am not so familiar with data recovery knowledge.

    Cons

    It takes about twenty minutes to scan my nearly full 320GB drive.

    Summary

    In fact, in order to access files inside this RAW drive, I have tried many data recovery tools online. But, only this iCare Data Recovery Standard has scanned and restored the largest amount of my original files. Most impressively, since many unnecessary files are scanned, its "Preview" function even allows me to pick out the needed files out and restore them only. It really saves time.
    Honestly, I have a good habit to back up all my important drive data with FBacckup program every Friday. However, this time, it was only Wednesday when my Western Digital hard drive became RAW. What's worse, the computer also got some problem and could not be used the next time. That was why I had to use a data recovery tool to help me out. So, after experiencing this, I have learned a lesson to back up all my drive data as much as possible.

    "Liars and Thieves. Software actually corrupted my HD!"

    April 22, 2014   |   By akadane

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 6.0.0.1

    Pros

    The trial version gives you hope by showing files it might be able to recover; It's all downhill from there.

    Cons

    Their software actually assisted in 'corrupting' my hard drive according to a data recovery specialist I had to hire after their software claim to save my files after purchasing the key.

    They have no money-back guarantee; I've asked for a refund for over 3 months and they will not honor my request even after their software corrupted my hard drive.

    They take days and sometimes weeks to respond to emails. No other means of support or communication.

    They have removed their 'contact us' information from their website. It's the same as the link 'about iCare' at the bottom. Check it out yourself. It was there a few months ago before their software corrupted my hard drive, so I'm sure I'm only one of probably thousands who are complaining to them for them to remove their contact info.

    Summary

    I downloaded the trial version and it found about 1,500 files in about 20 minutes that I wanted to recover. You cannot save the files without purchasing their key for the full version. They claim if you see them with the trial you can save them after buying their key. I purchased it and input it to the field, but it said it was invalid; I copy and pasted it and typed verbatim about 15 different times with same result. Was told to uninstall and reinstall and use the key during installation. I did that and was able to 'search again' for the files with the full version. But this time it found NONE of the 1,500 files from the first search. In fact it only searched about 1000 sectors out of a total of 1,000,000 sectors in about 24 hrs. which would have taken a month. Obviously something was wrong. I began emailing them as this is their ONLY means of contact. Response was HORRIBLE. i finally took my hard drive to a trusted specialist. He said the HD was corrupt and it was likely the uninstalling of the iCare software while it has found the original files. He said it would cost about $2000 to fix now; had I brought it to him in the beginning it would have been about $200 because the HD was not corrupt at that point. iCare actually corrupted my hard drive because their trial version would not accept the 'key' I purchased and they had me uninstall/reinstall to get the key to work. By then the files could not be recovered. I have dialoged with them via email for the past 3 months asking AT LEAST for a refund and they will not comply. STAY FAR FAR AWAY! You have been warned. If your data is worth ANYTHING, I would not use this software. One last thing to show you how CORRUPT they are; go to their website and select the 'about iCare' link, then select the 'contact us' link at the bottom of the page. THEY ARE THE SAME THING showing ONLY the 'ABOUT iCare' information. NO INFORMATION ON HOW TO CONTACT THEM. I wonder why????? It was there a few months ago before their software corrupted my hard drive, so I'm sure I'm only one of probably thousands who are complaining to them for them to remove their contact info. USE AT YOUR OWN PERIL!

    They actually DO offer a 30 day money back guarantee, but have not honored it for me with a valid reason according to their website; even after requesting for a refund for the past 3 months.

    "You need to know how to use data recovery software"

    February 05, 2014   |   By BillyMarshall12

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 4.2

    Pros

    It's possible to recover deleted files, formatted, or other wise user errors

    Cons

    Doesn't work for hard ware level recoveries and mechanical failures, or failures within the service area or firmware

    Summary

    Anyone attempting to use software to recover data should be warned about the risks. Anyone producing or writing data recovery software ought to warn the users about the dangers and risks of losing their data, something along the lines of http://www.sertdatarecovery.com/recovery-software/8-dangers-associated-free-data-recovery-software at least to give fair warning about how to recover data properly.

    Updated on Feb 5, 2014

    If you really care about your data and want to get it back, you would be better off going with a company like KrollOntrack, SERT Data Recovery, or Secure Data Recovery.

    "Great Software. Saved my memories!"

    September 30, 2013   |   By ishek

    Version: iCare Data Recovery 5.2

    Pros

    Able to read raw disk partitions.
    Can recover files form raw disk partitions.
    Can recover deleted files.

    Cons

    Small con: does not support multi-language names for files and renames the files.

    Summary

    I was re-sizing one of my partitions and accidentally destroyed my boot section and lost access to the drive. The drive became raw and was prompting for format in order to access it. I had very valuable data there (my wedding videos, tons of family pictures, personal finance documents, etc.). I did some research and tried the free version of iCare. This program scanned the raw drive and showed me the files. I purchased the full version and managed to recover all the needed data with it. Best $50 I've spent this year! Will recommend without a doubt! Just make sure to search for coupons to get a 20-50% discount...

    "Terrific Freeware! It Has Recovered My IPod."

    July 11, 2012   |   By gtyilsenf

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 4.6.4

    Pros

    My iPod is always going well until yesterday I inserted it to a public computer to download a pop song. I connected it to my pc later but somehow all data disappeared. I right clicked it and it said 400MB used. But I just could not find the files, they were hiding away. I downloaded iCare Data Recovery and had my iPod scanned. What a miracle! All files were back again! Thanks very much!

    Cons

    I also have an iPhone but the software is not compatible with it. What a pity!

    Summary

    Anyhow iCare Data Recovery Free is simple and useful. I'll recommend it to my friends.

    "Useful & Valuable Software for Reformat CF card"

    July 10, 2012   |   By charklikesapple

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 4.6.4

    Pros

    I linked the CF card to my pc by a card reader, it said my CF card is not formatted, I inserted it into my Cannon, it still said "the disk in drive is not formatted, do you want to format it now", it was so weird because just a few days ago I stored photos into it and it worked well. I connected it to my friend's computer it did not work either. I did not want to format it for I had stored all my graduation photos in it. So I tried this data recovery software. Wow, I never expect I can reformat my CF card and recover the photos. It was terrific!

    Cons

    I had some difficulty in recovering my videos, and only half of those were found back. I left my CF card there and did not store any more data in it. What may I do to recover the left videos?

    Summary

    I like iCare Data Recovery!

    "Thanks for Retrieving My Smartphone Data"

    July 08, 2012   |   By cantingringing

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 4.6.4

    Pros

    My smartphone was damaged and all my contact, SMS, memos, call histories, calendars, notes were gone. It was really depressing. Fortunately I got this freeware in time and all lost data were recovered. Thanks a lot! You saved my smartphone. Really appreciate!!!

    Cons

    My friend has an iPhone 4s, and he wondered if the software could recover it as well. You know some iPhone data recovery software costs a lot. I hope this can fix it too.

    Summary

    Awesome Freeware! Thanks for Recovering My Lost Data!

    "Amazing and Powerful Sofware"

    July 05, 2012   |   By Jerrybythewater

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 4.6.4

    Pros

    It retrieved my important documents from my corrupted CF card. I bought the card just a few weeks ago and I didn't know why it could not be recognized on my pc and had to be formatted.I would lose all my files if I did so. Thus i downloaded this free iCare data recovery and installed it. That was fast. The only thing I had to do was clicking my mouse and you may guess it, my files were recovered. Thanks a lot!

    Cons

    I hope the free download sofware could recover more files one day.

    Summary

    A really professional sofware! It's fast and easy. Hope you can do better!

    Version: iCare Data Recovery Software 4.6.4

    Pros

    I deleted my son's birthday photos and videos from my pc by mistake, and I even could not find them in recycle bin either!Then I found iCare data recovery on the web and I had a try. Thank God! The lost photos and videos were back again. The operation is quite simple and the demo is very clear. I just did as it told me and the whole process was merely 30 minutes. It's really a handy software.

    Cons

    It would be much more better if the interface color be lighter.
    It is not compatible with Mac and iPod.

    Summary

    Hope more people will know about it!
