Editors' Review

MiniTool Photo Recovery helps you find and recover photos lost from your computer, digital camera, memory card, or other external drive. With thorough scanning features and an intuitive interface, this app can have your photos back to you in one piece, regardless of how you lost them.

Pros

Filtering and targeting: If you know ahead of time anything about the file types of the image files you're searching for, you can use that information to target your scans before that even begins. This results in quicker scans and more relevant results. You can also filter results after the fact by either filename or extension -- or by file size by entering a range.

Ongoing access: Previous scans remain available for reloading through the app, so if you realize there's something you want to go back and find on a device you've scanned before, you don't have to start a brand new scan over again. This saves lots of time and lets you get the results you're looking for quickly.

Cons

No Help link: There is a nice User Guide that goes with this app, but you'd never know it, if you were looking for a link to it from the app. In fact, the only way to access this guide is to go to the product page directly and follow a link from there, which you might not think to do.

Bottom Line

MiniTool Photo Recovery is a good tool for finding and restoring lost photos from a variety of devices through your Windows computer. It includes a nice set of filtering and targeting features designed to cut down on your scanning and sorting time, and the ability to reload old scans is a nice touch as well. This program is completely free for personal use.
