I say, avoid this software. It has now accepted 3 of the the serials and said activation sucessfull, still its only a trial.

I bet that even after a $100 it will say trial.

Reply   |   Comment by Micke  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+16)

Micke, I strongly suspect that this was prematurely released as version 1.0 instead of being properly alpha and beta tested to iron out these glaring licensing and likely other bugs and no significant public beta testing of their release candidate 1.0 occoured due to the crippleware nature of the trial and exceptionaly high rental price to even try the full version.

There are a few issues with the application that I find hinder the use of it.

Problem 1.
I deleted a few documents just to test to see if it works, It does indeed "recover" files, but the file contents aren't the actual file, but the path of the file, for example a picture when I recover it does the following It asks me to save the file which i do, so I saved it to my desktop, I noticed that the picture isn't an actual picture, I go inspect the contents with a text editor.

Þ €>5…Ò E : \ C P j U 1 F 1 U w A A o A G s . j p g

Doesn't appear to be a image, It could very well be a conflict with veracrypt, but it's something that I doubt. It was just a deleted file off a HDD (non-ssd)

Problem 2.
Obviously the activation seems to be an issue as I can't activate it.

Problem 3. (well not really a problem)
The price point is a bit too high, if you want competition aim for a lower price range people will buy this over a $199 application for example if it's good.

That being said I see potential in the application once these minor issues are fixed, I myself like the outlook of the application, the UI is alright It's not awful, needs a few improvements.

Installed in Win 7 x64 with no issue

Registration does not work. Entering the supplied GOTD activation key and the application stays in trial mode, it does not activate

Two disk images mounted in windows. 1 raw image mounted and formatted as FAT32 disk is selectable for scanning in the application. Another F2FS raw image mounted but not formatted is listed in the application but is greyed out (not-selectable for scanning).

Scanning the FAT32 disk finishes within less than a second, with no results returned.

Scanning the windows C: drive (512GB SSD) for photos produces a long list of images of which approx 50% have a "good chance" or recovery, and the other 50% as "Bad".

- There is no file or images preview.
- There is no count of the returned results.
- There is no option to select all
- The main application window can not maximized
- There are no results view options, one single fixed view
- Scan results can not be saved

The list goes on. What raises many questions, is that in the application there is a logo indicating Akick as a "Microsoft Partner - Gold Application Development". And on their site other prominent logos as "Cisco Premier Partner" and "Intel Software Partner Premier 2016".

On the company's site, there is no contact address or phone number under "Contact us" just a typical form.
However, on the support page there is a toll-free number and an email address.
On the Awards page, software.intel.com link is invalid, and looking up Akick returns no results on the site.

And lastly, on the product's page, under "System Requirements" it would have bee sufficient to say windows xp SP3 and above and not text-fill with every single OS. You got the point.

Dicthing this one.

only 1 out of 57 AV engines have any problem with it and that's just potential adware or other potentially unwanted program.

From that result I'd be more warey of their poor programming skills than any actual malicious software inclusion.

Adrian, no adrian, if you took the trouble to read their website a little you'd find the text below under system requirements:

"This software is easily installed; it is installed in the system compatible with all latest versions of operating system including:

1. Windows XP Service Pack 3
2. Windows Vista Service Pack 1
3. Windows 7 or Windows 8"

No mention of Windows 8.1 or 10
Even though Version 1.0 was only produced around august 2016 acording to virustotals first exposure to the V1.0 setup file. I was commenting on the System Requirements data that AKick sent to giveawayoftheday to be displayed here, not reality or what they claim on their website or what you can make up :)

According to the developer's own Press Release at that time, Akick Data Recovery was launched in December 2016 because:

"Imagining a day when you aren't able to access crucial documents, family pics, song collections is difficult. Apparently, it would not be a good feeling. But now, it is absolutely possible to recover lost data with the recovery software."

Imagining a day would also be difficult when apparently it would not be a good feeling, either, to have to spend $100 a year, every year, on an unknown recovery app when it is absolutely possible to acquire Recuva from well-established developer Piriform for absolutely nothing at all.

As this GOTD comments thread exists as much to help developers as GOTDers, might I suggest to Akick Software that it embarks on a period of recovery itself before returning to this sector with something less palpably laughable?

It clearly hasn't a clue about what it's doing with today's promotion -- the reference to the trial version's appalling two-file restriction is obviously unintended -- whilst the fact that Malwarebytes is blocking Akick's primary address as malicious and reporting the extended link on this page as an SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG connection fail is downright embarrassing. As for hoping to rent out its wares at $100 annually recurring, words fail. . .

The thought occurs that this isn't actually a product promotion as some High School research project into consumer gullibility. Either way, thanks GOTD, but absolutely no thanks.

MikeR, AKick also commit the cardinal SSL sin of including non-SSL content on a SSL page, potentially compromising the security of the entire page!

http://weloveiconfonts.com/api/?family=entypo

was found, they don't provide SSL access so AKick should choose a different font provider OR get permission to host the font file on their own SSL server and maintain data integrity.

Also a fault in the pages header:

script src="//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js"

That script URL won't work as there is no protocol named... no http or https

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

TK, thanks for that. All in all, this developer is making a shambles of itself.

I genuinely hope that, as a long-established India-based company, it is as aware -- as all international enterprises should be -- that inter-linked global agencies of various kinds are nowadays constantly alert to the existence of businesses in any country which set pricing and sale conditions that, inexplicably, seem calculated to return a deliberate loss, rather than any kind of profit.

I have no cause to think that this company's behaviour is anything other than the result of a combination of naivety and incompetence.

But married as I am to someone who works for an international accountancy firm occasionally called upon to advise on PRODUCE?*, I think it's only fair to advise today's developer that GOTD deservedly attracts a world-wide audience, the majority of whom will have day-time jobs, yet the nature of which jobs may come as quite a surprise to some.

In light of this developer's performance today, and what many may with good reason regard as the absence of any commercial future for this particular product (as currently priced and marketed), AKick urgently needs to up its game. For its own sake.

* PRODUCE. Anyone who remembers a certain Mel Brooks / Gene Wilder movie will understand.

Their website states that you can recover only two files in the trial mode. Therefore, what is offered today is cripple-ware. Considering all of the similar software available on the market, $99 for this program, if it were available for use indefinitely, would still be out of range. $99 for a single year is ridiculous. This software manufacturer should go back to the drawing board and look at what's available on the market in similar products and then price theirs accordingly. Recovery of only two files at a time, makes this program more of a nuisance than a benefit.

Susan,

If you want to have a good laugh, go visit their site.

"Compatible with major platforms, like Windows."

"Recovers files from various files systems, like FAT, NTFS, etc."

So-called FAQ :

"-- Is this software easily recovers all types of file ?"

"-- Yes, this software easily recovers all types of file."

No product sheet, no downloadable manual, no online help, no knowledge base, no user forum. Support is by phone, "toll free". God knows what they will try to sell you while giving out this "free support".

The information given on their other "programs" is similar. It's a joke.

Reply   |   Comment by Clairvaux  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+36)

Susan, I agree with you. On the other hand, the free market will probably "regulate" this anyway.

Reply   |   Comment by M.  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Susan: the two-file trialware version isn't the subject of today's giveaway. Some kind of error seems to have occurred. The product's $99.99 price tag and recurring license deal are also mistakes, though I think the developer has yet to comprehend that.

Reply   |   Comment by MikeR  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Susan, If his software can recover files better than the competition (and that is not a high target, unfortunately), then it is worth the money.
I wonder if there is an article anywhere, comparing recoverability. I've tried several of the tools offered here during the passing months, by simple erasing a file, and immediately trying to recover it, using a rotating (non-SSD) NTFS drive. The failures were disheartening..

Reply   |   Comment by AR  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

AR, don't erase a file, just DELETE it. erase is not the same as delete. Erase is what programs like Eraser from hiedi.ie does. Delete is what windows does to get rid of a file... If I erase a file it is not recoverable even in a forensic data recovery lab. If I Delete a file then it is potentially recoverable by any number of free and paid file/data recovery utilities... maybe even this one!
