Like a rescue team for your hard drive, Search and Recover restores files accidentally deleted or lost due to reformatting or disk corruption (using the new StrongScan search).
Finding files is Search and Recover's strongest point. You can filter files by name, type, size, or restoration probability, and save searches for later use or perform another search from the results of the previous one. Search and Recover offers the useful ability to search deleted files by text, and it displays found items as raw data, text, HTML, or image files.
Although it can also restore deleted files from CD and DVD and external devices such as digital cameras or Zip drives, its interface doesn't make it convenient to pick several files for recovery. Besides recovering the files you want and using disk imaging to prevent file loss, Search and Recover lets you permanently erase unnecessary or embarrassing files and folders.
The trial version lets you recover only three files, but that's more generous than most similar programs. Considering its price and its bevy of features, Search and Recover is worth a look.
