Editors' Review

With Handy Recovery, scanning your PC and recovering selected files is a simple process--once you get over some initial hurdles. During testing, at first it wasn't clear that folders marked with a red X were the ones that contained deleted items, but we cleared that up by consulting the help files. Handy Recovery tells you what chance it has of restoring a given deleted file. It lets you search results by keyword or filter, and it also lets you filter discovered files according to various parameters. It can read raw disk data, which may be your last resort with damaged text files. In our tests, the program had no problem finding the majority of erased documents, although you're out of luck if your system drive has been damaged. Also, if you need to find and recover a large number of files, this program may not be the answer, as the demo only lets you restore one file per day for a month. Overall, Handy Recovery is best suited to home users undertaking simple recovery tasks.
