I tend to like Ashampoo products, so I thought I'd try this. I have a CF disk that crashed on me some time ago; using another product I was able to recover some of the photos, but I thought I'd see if this would do more.

I ran the program without changing any parameters and it told me it couldn't find any images. I noticed that the standard run was to search for JPG, BMP and so on, so I changed it to look for RAW (the files on the disk would be NCF raw). It ran for a few seconds, said it found 123 photos, then after another second a screen popped up saying no photos found.

It's possible this is meant more for mistakenly formatted disks than crashed ones, so perhaps I was asking too much from it. I am curious about the "123 photos" but since it didn't go past that, I couldn't discover what it had done.

Uninstalled. Better luck next time, Ashampoo.

I love the diversity in the comments. Especially GOTD members spotting the weird things. :D

For what the software does, there are enough freewares, it's true, because it's a saturated field and only requires Google.

If Photo commander 15 goes onto the internet when started and bring up adds for other Ashampoo software, then you can block it from accessing the internet through windows firewall as you can with any other program.

I have many Ashampoo products. I first found out about them from this website. I've purchased between 6-12 of them. Sales are common.

People complain about them spamming. Usually, this can be turned off on their website and by turning it off through their service channel within the software.

I bought Photo Commander 14. The above suggestion works on it and all of the other programs of theirs I use. However, on the recent Photo Commander 15 giveaway, the program WOULD NOT allow me to turn off the spam via the service channel. Every single time I opened the program, it would go out via the Internet and then present an ad for Ashampoo software. This was extremely annoying when trying to view many photos in quick succession. It was so irritating that I downgraded to Photo Commander 14.

I'm saying this here because I think people should know that their software may have ramped up the spamming to a whole new level.

As for the software, I put it to the ultimate test by trying to recover lost photo file from an old Sony Mavica mini-cd - it didn't find a thing. The only software that does is a paid Cd-Roller.

Uninstalled.

Why is there special software for PHOTO recovery? Isn't it just a file?

Reply   |   Comment by dan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

dan, while it is just a file, many photo image formats have well defined header data structures that can aid in recognition of them and extracting and parsing the header data can improve the likelihood of recovering the image files from a raw drives surface rather than relying upon a "ghost" of a filesystem reference to a file that had been deleted or lost in some way which is how unknown file types of file types without a well defined header structure are limited by recovery methods available.

So basically photo only recovery software is supposed to be an "expert system" recovery tool leveraging expert knowledge of specific unique data structures to aid recovery.

Is there a way for the scan to return *only* deleted photos? I don't want to be bombarded with 1,000 results of images I already have and have to sift through for the ones I've lost.

Reply   |   Comment by Jake  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+18)

Jake, unlikely, it would have to do some kind of deep scan vs active file systems contents comparison and that would take significant development thought and work to impliment and this is not supposed to be a really advanced tool. It is only version 1.0.1 barely out of diapers yet! Even though THIS version is over 3 years old! previously givenaway https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ashampoo-get-back-photo-1-0-1/ December 7, 2015 and https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ashampoo-getback-photo-1-0-1-2/ February 25, 2015 and... https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ashampoo-getback-photo-1-0-1/ August 15, 2013 and.... that's it I think... undeveloped for at least 5 years.

Make that 6 years stagnation from their webpage "Version 1.0.1, 2012/04/26"

Yes go to is usually Recuva for fast scan & recovery. This is worth a shot given what
Softpedia lists for ver. 1.0.5 trial$.
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Ashampoo-GetBack-Photo.shtml
Ashampoo Photo Recovery offers support for two scanning modes, a quick and complex one. The first mode enables you to search only for common image formats, namely JPG, PNG, BMP, and GIF.

The complex scan is slower than the first mode but empowers you to scan your computer for all known image formats, including RAW. What’s more, you are allowed to specify the saving directory, choose the device from a drop-down list, and refresh the device list with just one click.
At the end of the task, you can view the thumbnails, select the images that you want to retrieve, as well as open the photos after there are saved to your computer with the aid of your default image viewer.
It is important to mention that the tool is able to retrieve metadata (EXIF or IPTC) and scan for pictures inside PDF or DOC files. On the downside, you cannot apply filters, such as file extension or size.

Bottom line
All in all, Ashampoo Photo Recovery seems to be the right choice in case you are looking for a simple-to-use yet efficient application that comes packed with a handy set of tools for helping you retrieve lost or deleted images.

beergas, confusingly the softpedia article is called one thing but is about a different ashampoo product. The two product pages are

https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pin/0173/tools-and-utilities/photo-recovery

and

https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/pin/0073/tools-and-utilities/Ashampoo-GetBack-Photo

Where getback-photo was abandoned at version 1.0.1 and supports windows back to XP and photo recovery product is at version 1.0.5 and only supports from windows 7 and above... I suspect but cannot prove that the photo recovery product was a rebrand of GetBack Photo product which is likely why that old product was abandoned.

Received key instantly since I have many Ashampoo products already. Key was the same as last time. Tried on a 32 GB mini SD card that says "card must be formatted in order to use". Program found card, Found over 1900 pictures. 94 of the pictures I had not yet transferred from the camera. Does not give estimate of how long it will take to read card. Worked great, thanks!

Reply   |   Comment by JIM  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Maybe you down voters would like to explain why the program did not work for you? I tried using my camera yesterday,, and it kept telling me to reinsert SD card. I did several times to no avail. I then tried reading it in my computer, where the format message came up. I tried another card adapter with the same results. Was going to work on it this weekend to see if a recovery program could find the pictures. This came up today, so I gave it a shot and it worked.

JIM, don't fret, overly glowing reports are often viewed as planted comments rather than genuine giveaway participants comments, your comments are in the early plusses now :)

I have question, not comment. Can this software recover protected photos?

Reply   |   Comment by Andriy  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Andriy, ...hey...protected?...that didn't work huh? I mean if you lost them...I haven't tried this program yet but as many have
said Ashampoo has always been a good program

Reply   |   Comment by walt  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Andriy, please define what you mean by "protected photos" and why it is any different to any other deleted photo and then we might be able to give you an informed reply!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Andriy, Not quite sure what you mean my protected. If you mean the photo was a read only file, then I can't see any reason why not. However, if by protected you mean, for example, encrypted, then I say no as file encryption normally changes the file extension which would not be recognized by the software. Photos would be .RAW, .JPG and the likes whereas an encrypted file would have something different, depends on the encryption software. Most types of file/photo recovery work by doing a deep scan of the drive and access parts of the drive that users can't normally see ... It a bit more complex than that but that's very simplified explanation. The only way to be sure is to try the software and see what happens. Good luck, hope you get back whatever it is you lost.

Robert, Thank you for detailed response. Some of my files are locked(I guess- encrypted) I don't know what happened, but can not open them

Reply   |   Comment by Andriy  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Andriy, try rebooting into safe mode and accessing the same files or booting from a linux LiveCD and try accessing the files from there or from a WinPE boot CD or bootable USB drive and see if the files are avilable then... some protection systems use rootkit technologoy that involves a special service/driver that hooks into the host version of windows and hides or adds a layer of security like effect but does not really protect the files and folders as it's smoke and mirrors that can be circumvented by removing the "smoke genreators" and "mirrors" by booting into a differnt operating system without them. It's worth a try!

Why to pay $20 for a software which is a photo recovery whereas there are free software available which can not only recover photos but videos and emails and document files and that too free. Recuva is one example

Reply   |   Comment by Tariq  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+18)

Tariq, Recuva didn't even find anything with one flash drive I ultimately recovered over a 1,000 photos with one program offered here earlier (Magic Uneraser)...so sometimes 'free' doesn't work well either

I have requested the full version key twice already and I have not gotten an e-mail yet. it has been over an hour.

Reply   |   Comment by Faye  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Faye, been a while since I participated in an ashampoo giveaway but I recall that once you have registered an email with them it has an associated account on their server that you should be able to create a password for if you haven't already and any license keys you have had genereated for the products you have purchased or obtained via giveawayoftheday.com offers should be saved in the online account.

I may be wrong but if it is still true you may be able to login using the same email address you used before and retrieve the key manually instead of waiting on an email that probably will never arrive as many corporate email spam filter agents are likely to block ashampoo emails for past history of overtly aggressive marketing emails that don't always honour user preferences.

Ashampoo -inform us what is the big technical difference between Get Back Photo 1.0.1 and other recovery software?

Reply   |   Comment by Barry  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+24)

Barry,

Don't hold your breathe waiting for a response from Ashampoo. They have made numerous offers here over the years. But not one time have they taken the time to reply to us users here.

Reply   |   Comment by brenda  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Barry, first thing is that version 1.0.1 is just over 6 years old with no further development since it was released... From the products home page above "Version 1.0.1, 2012/04/26"

That is I think the biggest technical difference between this ashampoo product and almost all other available free or commercial file/picture recovery software out there!
