Giveaway of the Day - Ashampoo GetBack Photo 1.0.1

August 15, 2013
This giveaway is not available any more.

Photos are full of memories and often have a priceless, sentimental value. Especially then it is painful, when one realizes that the digital photos of the own wedding, pictures of the children’s births or of the last holiday are gone and that there is no backup. With Ashampoo GetBack Photo the loss of digital photos doesn’t have to be permanent. The program enables the quick recovery of photos from different storage devices in just a few steps.

In contrast to many conventional undeleter programs, Ashampoo GetBack Photo recovers not only photos that were deleted “normally”, but also images from storage devices that have already been formatted.

Key features:

  • Recovery of deleted or damaged image files.
  • Scan of all storage devices in the system.
  • Photos might even be found, after the storage device was formatted.
  • Metadata is also recovered, e.g. EXIF and IPTC.
  • Support of all common file formats, e.g. JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, RAW.
  • Photos are also found in file formats such as PDF and Word documents.
  • Display of recoverable photos as thumbnails.

  2. Add features beyond photo recovery. Options are so vast nowadays, and very effective. It may be a tough sell to offer a ‘one item’ recovery option, with options to recover some related items as aforementioned in the description, all wrapped up in a 20 dollar package. In truth, I have not tested this, but how effective is it truly? the description states “Photos might even be found, after the storage device was formatted.” Does not appear to be something I would bank on, and the lump in the gut of nowing youre pics are gone, my not go away if you can only promise “might,” sounds more discerning than anything. So for clarification it DOES NOT do do sector by sector recovery? Also, recovery beyond accidential or even multiple formats, deleted partitions, and/or multiple resizes w/quick formats = SOL. free today but normally $20 bucks? People spend money like that?

    Truth is, to improve I would assess the competition, there are free alternatives that will do the tasks I described with ease, go to sourceforge and use some key words like recovery, and you’ll hit a better selection of freeware with more promises than a “might.” No disrespect intended, but when you’re data is on the line, and you got that lump in your gut, you need to ‘KNOW’ you can count on something. A “maybe” is about the worst answer you can get, at least with a yes or no, you have somethign definitive. I am sure that anyone who has experienced data loss on any capacity can commiserate with the importance of knowing you have good tools. Also, if you format, is there a recovery disk? that might be a good start too, whereas, how would one access the software to recover without it, I think I am understanding the might a little more. Free alternatives can do much of this with with ease, and typically so much more. If people want to pay, Diskgettor is the best I have ever seen and used, without the need for external recovery hardware – it will even give you the file structure back, original file names, meta data, and you can save the scan to reopen later without having to rescan – brilliant. Can this match that, or do you get the random names reccovery options, e.g., “KJDUDJNEP0A.JPG;” which, can be commonly found iin less effective recovery options.

    How would I improve? Respectfully, I would recommend offering a package that is not limited to photos, or the files that contain photos. How about a recovery disk option, and how about 5 bucks instead of 20? Even if free (temporarily), IMHO, charging 20 bucks is 19 bucks to high, and while it may be effective and/or generate some income… it may inadvertently alienate good folks who simply need more than anticipated, and once that happens, research shows how hard it is t reverse a negative consumer association. A bit tangential, but for illustrative purposes, google ‘Wii: Two Years of Negative Brand Momentum’ – that will illustrate my point well enough.

    This is just my opinion, and naturally each should participate based on their individual need. For some this will be what they need, for others, simply know there are additional options out there, and if you miss the deal, do you’re research before plopping down a 20 spot.

  3. I’ve just tried it with a couple of missed pics of mine and it’s actually recovered them in a few seconds time.

    But why pay 20 bucks if PHOTOREC does the same and even more for FREE?
    In fact, what makes this OPEN SOURCE tool so special is its ability to ignore the file system, meaning it can recover lost files even when the file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.

    Unlike this GAOTD it also supports bootable media, thus it can be run outside Windows enabling you to recover deleted files even when your PC is no longer able to boot into Windows.
