Although yesterday I sent 3 different emails, no key arrived :- / !!! (Controlled SPAM). Today I noticed only annual license, so I am not so much worried. The "trial" version are increasing much :-(

A time-limited licence for this sort of software is just a cynical exploitation of your user base. Instead of following the Microsoft/Sainsbury Avarice Model, you would do better in the long run to provide a good product that people can just buy the right to use. Yes, I know this download is free to use (at least for a year): I think most people pay for this software, though. If this is actually a perpetual licence that comes with free updates for a year, I suggest that should be made clear at the earliest possible time.

Good luck,

This Australian developer was at one time riding high on a wave of goodwill, but that was then and this is now. Now, it's just another company seeking to maximize profits from rentalware, with recurring annual licenses for stuff which requires no ongoing developer overhead or ongoing developer cost. As such, a rentalware 'giveaway' is pointless -- and especially in this instance when freeware photo and file recovery software from developer Christophe Grenier has long been available and has a user base, and support forum, of many thousands. For more info:



Thanks GOTD, but no thanks. When Auslogics gets back in to the business of selling its products rather than trying to rent 'em out, that'll be the day when its free samples are worth the time and effort of download.

Program might be good, but how will time-limited licensing work in selling this type of program? Is it the intention by the maker to make customers buy 1-year licenses time after time just in case anything goes wrong in the next year? You have to install (and buy (free version only 30 days trial)) it beforehand because installing it after something goes wrong might overwrite the files you just lost. There are lots of good recoverysoftwares with lifetime licenses with prices below 2 years buying the license of the gotd, so I don't understand this strategy.

The program provides a 1-Year license. I wouldn't consider an offer with a longer shareware period as a giveaway. Except for a programs like an antivirus or so, which need almost daily support.

The current “giveaway” is not such kind of program.

So- I do consider the todays “giveaway” as a sales trick.

However- thank you GOTD.

And- thanks Auslogics, but no thanks.

I downloaded this, then when I tried to install it, I got a message from GOTD that it had "expired". I should still have quite a few HOURS left before it expires. What gives?

This is what I tried and it worked:
1. Download the latest 7.0 version http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/file-recovery/
2. Install
3. Register using the serial number given for the free 6.2.1

Haven't tested what it can recover.

Haven't tried this one yet, but we've used Auslogics software in the past and it always worked OK. I think the first one we ever tried was their defrag program which was a cut above the old Windows defragger!

Auslogics File Recovery is a 26MB app with low impact on Windows that you *might* be able to use semi-portably, running the app FileRecovery.exe from the program's folder, depending on if you are allowed to register it after today's GOTD is over. Files are stored in the Auslogics & ProgramData\ Auslogics\ folders.

The 1st comment on the GOTD download page, said that running the GOTD version they were immediately prompted to install a later version. I downloaded, installed, & registered the trial version to avoid that. Because of that I don't know if this is only with what was originally a trial, or if it effects all installs -- there are 2 files in the program's folder for Google Analytics [GASender.exe & GoogleAnalyticsHelper.dll], & I got an advertising pop-up when I ran it.

Hoping that I'm not jinxing myself, I haven't had to try recovering a file for some time now, & Recuva portable worked at that time, so I can't report something like then I used this Auslogics app & it saved my butt. I know if Recuva hadn't worked I would have tried another app, & in the future if I need to run a 2nd recovery app I might well give Auslogics a try, but I can't say how well it works compared to Recuva because I haven't had to use it in a real world situation. I hope you never have to either.

Tried a little test, pasted an image to a Flash drive and then deleted it.
This should be easy to recover as there was no writing to the drive after this image deleted.

This program did not find it in a quick scan.
Tested with five other recovery programs, most of them could find it but not preview it.
They showed the same bytes when viewed in hex, so I decided to try one to recover the image.

I then attempted to view the image after recovery, was informed this is not a valid.jpg file.

This really shook me, that so many recovery programs could not recover this image.
Never had any success recovering from a Flash drive and wonder if the system wrights something directly after something is deleted and this corrupts it.

"This should be easy to recover as there was no writing to the drive after this image deleted."

Well, that depends. If the drive was FAT or FAT32, and the file was stored in different fragments then it unlikely an intact file will be recovered. After a fragmented file is deleted, all info that remains to locate the deleted file, is the directory entry. Due to that the start cluster is known, plus the file size. It's not enough to determine the location of the different fragments.

As usual this company have brought some interesting features into the program.

First you choose the drives to be scanned and the type of file to look for, video, music, documents etc.

In the next step you can if you wish set a date range for the files recovered.

And then you can specify filenames if you wish.

And lastly you can specify the type of scan, a deep scan or a quick scan you can also select not to scan zero length files or system files.

On a quick scan it only found two files, it didn't list files that were not deleted thank goodness.

Looks like it could be really useful program, keeping it.

You had me at:
" it didn't list files that were not deleted thank goodness."

It really is amazing how many recovery programs do exactly that.

Immediately after installing and before registration - a notice appears that there is an update available to Auslogics File Recovery 7. (I typically shy away from updates of giveaways).
You can click the update and it will download version 7 - then inform you that you must uninstall the previous one - that’s ok, it’s safe.
It will then install to whatever folder the previous version was in automatically. I say this because I never install (giveaway) programs to the default folder.
THEN you register with the key previously provided in your email.

Hi Michael, I updated to version 7 after I registered. But I get "Program registered (Subscription expires in 340 days)". Did you get this also?
