Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

I am coming back to report on this as promised, after posting at #2....

After four hours working with this programme on a 150Gb (removed) hard disk, and then half the night "registering" all of the 38,000 found files onto my computer's internal 1Tb hard disk, I find I have LOTS of files -- but not one of them is a file created by me. They are all system files, even if JPGs or audio files.

In other words, it has unfortunately been a useless exercise. I cannot say if this is the fault of the programme -- it may well not be. I can only report what I have found.

Which is sadly, "Nothing useful."

Just make regular backups if data is important. Don't take the risk needing software like this...

Nice to be able to register with cut and paste for a change.

As a follow up comment - I was unimpressed because I specifically told it to look in just the Desktop but it searched all over my hard drive - why give an option if it doesn't respect it.
Now I hadn't expected it to recover the file after two days of computer use, it would have been nice if it had but that's life. I suppose I should start doing backups !!!

Installed and running on Win7, 64 Bit.

Recovered the majority of my trashed flash drive. Some pics are messed up so I'll have to find a free program that allows me to fix more than 100 pics before registering it.

When you delete a file, it's not actually wiped, but the space it takes up is just marked as empty. From that point onwards it's a race against time - every time you write something else to that partition, there's a high risk that some or all of the file gets overwritten. Or you may be super-lucky and it doesn't, but the odds are against you, especially with larger files.

That problem gets massively worse on your OS partition. Even just booting up Windows writes and updates TONS of files, same when the OS is running, stuff is written in the background constantly. So your chances of a good recovery on the OS partition are MUCH slimmer than somewhere else.

Golden rule - as soon as you loose a file, avoid all writes to that drive. If you need to install an undeleter, put it on a DIFFERENT partition, so you don't risk trashing the file. And then pray : ).

#4 Adrian.
A rather meaningless test, have been unable to recover files deleted only moment previously from the same drive that files deleted years before were recoverable, it's the luck of the draw.

This software is also very very similar to HDD Recovery Pro 4.1 which I downloaded last September. The program structure is identical, only the "skin" is different. It even replaced some CLSID values in the Registry, presumably rendering the program HDD Recovery4.1 unusable!
They even offer the same programs on their respective web pages. The pictures of the software boxes are identical only the names are different.

Running Windows 10 on one SSDrive. This program found 2 hard drives and both had the letter C: and C: 1
Can I trust it? When it reports a drive that is not there?

I had similar software that claims sector by sector recovery, well. it took 3 days to recover 1GB file and that one I thought would be fine if it works, it didn't, after all of that time wasted, when I transfered the files to drive C: and then run it, it said sector not found and the computer froze.
Sector by sector recovery, I guess is fine for small files, provided all of the sectors spliced together are not corrupted, even if one of them is bad or does not belong in that sequence order, it will fail when you run it.

#2 - Try 7-Data Recovery. I accidentally wiped out an entire external drive, and thought I had lost everything I had saved over several years, photos, documents, executables.....everything I had put on the external because I didn't want to lose them. Well, I tried everything I could think of and nothing worked. As a last resort, I got a copy of 7-Data Recovery, installed it on a different drive, and ran it. I was able to recovery everything.....every single photo, document, etc.
So I would say try this. What have you got to lose? Just remember to install it on a different drive.

thanks for your professional and incisive reviews Karl!many companies simply publish the same software under different names or purchase older versions of software from other companies and simply re-brand it using their own company logo.

Adrian,If you deleted a file only two days ago I would try Shadow Explorer. I wouldn't be impressed either

I thought I had a clean desktop. Did a quick scan for deleted desktop files (never thought of that until I saw File Undeletes’ ‘Common folders’ / ‘Desktop’). It quickly found all kinds of stuff and gave excellent previews including movie and music files (use the wizard – you’ll be even more impressed).
I almost didn’t try todays’ giveaway as I already have recovery software. Tranmontane (#2) It looks like you’re in luck today; hang in there man.

Tran ... one thing to be careful of with programs like this, is not to install it on the hard drive you are trying to recover files on. If you do, it may mess up the file pointers and other info that the program would need to find your file. Also it is best to use this as soon as possible after you lose a file. The longer you wait, the more likely the program will not be able to find lost files.

Adrian - It seems a bit mean to be unimpressed just because it could not get back A FILE that you deleted. If the file is not there anymore then it is gone, that is not the fault of this application.

Have you tried RECUVA or any other free recovery option?
Now if they can find your missing file and this application can't then you have a right to be unimpressed and tell us all about it.

Installed, tried to recover an important file I'd saved on the desktop. 'Found' thousands of files, mainly cookies it seemed but not the one file I'd deleted two days ago. Uninstalled and unimpressed.

Installed and registered without problems, opened up to a simple to use interface.

For a quick test an eight gig FAT formatted Flash thumb drive was used; two tests were carried out, one under the heading of common folders and the second scan of the whole drive.

The first chosen was My Pictures and it found a surprising number of files and was able to recover them.

The second found a considerable number of files including a Delphi Pascal program source file and gave a very good preview of it, obviously recognising its type.

It did find a few supposed text files which obviously weren't when previewed.

The scans were done quite rapidly and so was surprised at how successful it was at recovery.
Probably the best recovery tool at this price range that I have seen, a keeper mainly because it's speed.

What?! NO comments -- and already 79% Thumbs down??

Does somebody know something I don't know??

Personally, if there is ANY chance of getting back some/most/all of the files on TWO hard disks that my wonderful estranged wife has obviously DELETED while I was away, I would be only too pleased to use it!

I will certainly install this programme, and SEE if it is any good. Okay, many such programmes make outlandish claims, which turn out to be unsupported, but at this point, any programme that gets me back ANYTHING is welcome -- especially if it is free.

I will try to get back later and give a proper "user report".... But at least I think we should give it a proper fair trial. In my case, I will certainly give it MORE than a fair trial -- since I am desperate....

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

A (Canadian?) company without name and address.
This agreement shall by laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein. from the license agreement.

Hello NTFS Recovery Company! Anybody at home and workin' ?

The first Data "Recovery News and Events by NTFS Recovery" started on July 22nd 2009 02:00 and ended after 4 entries on Sunday, Juli 26th 2009 02:00.

The press room isn't up-to-date either...

Recovery does not require a Windows Server system to work, though. Running on every 32-bit version of Windows since Windows 95 and up to the latest Vista and 2008 Server...

I know this software already. We had had this under different names, e.g. NTFS Mechanic Standard 2.1.1 - today's software is a "version" 3.1.1 from July 2012...

An American company with address … Really???, this software looks similar like Canadian Disk Recovery Wizard 4.1 from June 13th 2014. (WizardRecovery Inc.) And yes : the disclaimers says :
This agreement shall by laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein. -> the American Address of the Canadian company.

Today’s software NTFS Mechanic Standard 2.1.1 is from June 11th, 2012. It is a subset from HDD Mechanics of the same date (June, 11th 2012), which was given here on July 22nd, 2014 and November 27th, 2012.

So there is no real need of a new test from my side. I repeat my impression from the last GiveAway:

The possibility to create an image of the (corrupted) disk is a good and safe way to work on corrupted files.

The program makes a good and professional impression.

A reliable, a well structured and well tested program. What do you demand else? I will keep this, even if I did not need any of these recovery programs up to now. Backup is my favorite solution.

And you can get a free copy, if you help translating this software. There is the Englisg language only. Looking for years for an translator and did not find any? Strange...

Uninstalled via reboot.

Have a nice sunday.
