Installed to Win 10 Home x 64 without error. Software has iPhone and Android data recovery option, too. I tried to recover Android phone data but it always display download Error. If it could recover accidentally erased voice message it would be great but so far it is only showing error message.

With hundreds of free data recovery programs out there, why would I pay to buy this one? No thank you.

@MikeR, I downloaded and looked into the licence agreements, here was stated:
Anyone may use the free version or trial version of Bitwar Data Recovery. Before deciding upon the purchase, you may have a chance to verify whether your lost data can be recovered. But if you wish to save recovered files, you must purchase the full version...... all clear !

Reply   |   Comment by H.M.  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+20)

So you can use the program for FREE TO SEE the files that were deleted, but you need to PAY TO SAVE the files that were deleted. Gotcha.

Sorry Bitwar, I will definitely pass on this one.

H.M.,
WHAT?
Then why the "H" does anyone want if just to "see" if something can be recovered........then IF YOU WANT TO BUY first, then you can "maybe".........that's BULL
There are a LOT of good recovery programs....even one's that been on here, that you don't have to "pay the bank to recover.

I note the installer we are supplied with although same version and product is different in size and build date suggesting this build is specificly for this giveaway first I'm trying the installer they distribute via their website marketed as "Bitwar Data Recovery is a fast, reliable and free data recovery software with powerful functions."

Deficencies I've noticed so far is after the quick scan the listing column sort controls do not work properly, when I try to sort via size the GUI locks up for a significant period of time and when it does come back the sort operation has not happened properly files are still in original filename order... preview does not apear to work on the found JPG items but don't know the state of the data so could just be bad JPG data... there is no ability to selectively multi-select items to recover. i.e. no shift click to select or highlight a range of items or ctrl click to highlight a range of items It's either Select ALL or select individually only. The listing of #other lost files expands into a series of subfolders but they are not real folders because if you choose the parent folder it lists ALL the files supposedly in all the subfolders... so if you browse the parent folder and check select all in the browsing pane it selects everything the parent and all the sub-folders in the navigation pane.

And finally to show the deception on trying to recover any of the files with this "Bitwar Data Recovery is a fast, reliable and free data recovery software with powerful functions." on pressing recover a popup alert apears

"To recover and save files, please create an account and upgrade to VIP."

A classic example of a "bait and switch" pretend a product is free entice a victim to download and install it on the promise of a free program and only at the last moment when the person has invested time effort and resources in performing the recovery scan and is just about to recover the truth hits that you have to create an online account with the vendor and upgrade which WILL cost an indeterminate amount of money for an indeterminate period of time... My advice is if a company from ANY jurisdiction cannot be honest in marketing and pricing their product up front then that company is not to be trusted to produce safe or intended to be safe software and not to be trusted with any personal data like names and email addresses and any payment systems credentials. Even if the vendors program had a truly unique selling point or feature no other developer apparently has, (which this product does not have) I would advise to NEVER reward bait and switch sellers, NEVER EVER. Whoopdido this giveaway gives a 6 month VIP account who cares there are far better and honest products out there as well as better free products out there too. I'm not going near this vendors account system with a barge-pole everything smells very bad! Including the coding of the program itself!

Hermano2020: your comment is baffling. As I pointed out way back at post #3, I can't find any price for this product on the developer's own website. I've now had another look but can't find any reference to "VIP", either. The only thing that's actually noticeable is the developer's self-congratulation on winning an, er, "award" which has been "granted" to it by Softpedia. . . for marketing something that's malware-free. But that's not an "award". It's just a statement.

Sadly, if this all Bitwar can say about its wares, it might like to go back to the drawing board and start over. Today's promotion of a 6-month license for freeware makes no sense and its misunderstanding of Softpedia clearance, downright worrying.

MikeR, are you the usual MikeR that usually posts quite well informed comments? As the situation is obvious you don't see it until you try to use it... google "bait and switch" phrase definition. It IS NOT FREWARE it is deceptive free crippleware that is only enabled if you create an account and upgrade that account to a VIP account on a subscription basis.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+20)

TK, Thanks TK: I never got past the developer's website. Kudos to you for going much nearer to this offer than I would've found comfortable. 'Bait 'n Switch' has (thankfully) largely vanished from the software world so it's disappointing that a developer partnering with GOTD is trying it on: when a website is created to mislead, as is now obvious here, then there's no future for the producer nor for its products. (PS: apologies to Hermano2020, and kudos, too, for also treading where I wouldn't set foot.)

Reply   |   Comment by MikeR  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Hermano2020, Sorry to baffle and befuddle; a clarification should have been provided: I followed Earlier link to free download and installed and directed the program to recover a suggested recoverable file from an SD. Selected file and clicked RECOVE and received this notice: "To recover, create account and upgrade to VIP," at which point I bailed out. Again, I apologize for the confusion.

Reply   |   Comment by Hermano2020  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

No need to apologize. You did the work, as did TK, and all here will be grateful to you for that. This is yet another of those special kinds of threads which GOTD is allowing to run and thus I've no criticism at all of GOTD itself. As far as the developer, Bitwar, is concerned though, I've only the same contempt for it that it so obviously has for me and every other computer user out there.

Reply   |   Comment by MikeR  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

MikeR, I seriously did spot the risks and took several precautions and baby steps in the use of it. My spidy sense was screaming.... right from the company name to the inconsisitencies about Free vs must be commercial to be on here... and the fact it is a Chinese company and I know from much experience on importing Chinese goods from various specialised platforms that they do enjoy playing fast and loose with descriptions and performance claims and it is VERY much buyer beware when purchassing direct from China like going back to the 60's before the trades description act was bought in and began to be enforced. It's the new Wild-East... where no laws seem to apply when they deal with foriegners they usually misdeclair item value including shipping on their customs decleration too which defrauds revenue services and could result in seizure of products if they ever audited a shipment... I hate to say it but TRUMP is right about some of the unfair practices of Chinas exporters bypassing WTO rules and undercutting local suppliers and other countries exporters. But even a broken analogue clock is right twice a day.

Ok so today we can download Bitwar Data Recovery 6.3.5 and get a free licence for six months and/or pay $24.50 for the full package ... Yet I can download the same software from the developer's site FREE. I downloaded the free version from the site and installed, with no registration required and no mention of time limits. I thought that maybe there are some restrictions on the functions available, but not as far as I can see, this is fully functional and does a decent job or recovery. Sorry but am I missing something here, today's "offer" doesn't make sense ... Perhaps some kind person out there can tell me what I'm missing (Yes, yes, I know all about the marbles).

This Giveaway states "6 month license" and "The program is available for $24.50, but it will be free for our visitors as a time-limited offer."

But the Bitwar website says "Free" with no other indication of a "license" and no method to purchase for any amount. Sounds shady to me. Plus, the tutorials verbiage on their website reads like a spammy email, with weird spaces, misspellings, and strange punctuation.

Thank you, but I think I'll pass on this one.

Kurt, I've tried several "FREE" data recovery tools and all of them (with the exception of Recuva) are limited in some way.

Reply   |   Comment by Justin Alias  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Justin Alias, those usually state quite clearly "free download" and not that the program is free like this vendor does... From their site "Free Data Recovery Software" and zero mention of any provisos on that Free-ness on their site

If I see free download I know it's not freeware and is likely to be crippleware or at best shareware.

"High success rate over 99%." Are we to understand that it gets ALL Data back in 99% of cases? Or only if the Data has been overwritten? This kind of unsupportable and downright scammy claim + a bogus "6 Month License" that is worth exactly nothing = No Thanks !!!! Go and download something Free and very basic (like Recuvva, perhaps?) and chuck this one in the Recycle Bin.

Excuse me if I'm a bit confused, but why would this giveaway have a 6-month license even though according to the developer's website "Bitwar Data Recovery is a fast, reliable and free data recovery software with powerful functions." I can't find anything on their website to indicate "free" doesn't mean exactly that; yet this giveaway would indicate otherwise. It seems they expect you to install their "free" software and then find out it is not so free after all. If they don't understand the definition of "free", I don't know how they or their software can be trusted... (And I also note their website is "Copyright © 2018" - even less reason to be trusted...)

Reply   |   Comment by Min  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+62)

Min,

I agree with you on every point except the copyright portion. My comment applies to just the copyright statement you observed.

>(And I also note their website is "Copyright © 2018" - even less reason to be trusted...)

On the bitwar.net page regarding the Data Recovery Software, the copyright statement contains only 2018, as does the individual pages for each of their products, however if you check their other pages, you will see that most have copyright 2014-2018. It appears that the individual product pages have a slightly different template or design than the the pages that have 2014-2018 on them, probably from a partial re-design.

From WhoIs information, the domain name registration was "created" in 2016, so the 2014 referred to in the pages that have a range could (and should) be nothing more than referring to the page content dates, not the domain name or company itself. From the waybackmachine, it looks like the domain name was used back in 2010 by a programmer/game developer, then went dormant for a year or so (up for sale) before the current registration took place in 2016. Bitwar was also the name of an early computer game (do not know its current status or its connection to the domain name at any point in its history). Very likely the original registree could not afford to keep the domain name registered or didn't need it. I see more and more of this happening, and due to shorter domain names becoming scarce, they get registered by larger companies that can afford to keep them registered.

Several companies have domain name creation dates that are long after they have been in business. As a result of this, you cannot put much weight in when a domain name was created as basis for whether a company is reliable or not. Most likely the company used a different domain name prior to registering bitwar.net.

Companies also spin off new divisions with a newly registered domain name, or for a specific product (Google keeps coming up with new ones often), as do many others.

One example of a product that many will be familiar with is the irfanView program. It's history log shows that it goes back to 1996. The current domain name is irfanview.com, but I recall updating many times before seeing that the developer had acquired irfanview.com, and was exited for him having done so. The domain irfanView.com was created in 2000. At that time, the IrfanView program was at least version 3.10 (38 releases at that point).

The single copyright year may just be a web developer's oversight, a matter of lesser concern, or it may be because it is correct.

Having the current year without other years is not only common, but possibly very accurate. A page should have the copyright year that the page was first written. Unless a page has "substantial revisions," (per copyright law) there is no need to add following years (although it is very common to do so), and likewise, there is no need to precede the year of creation with the year that the company first went live (although, again, it is very common that websites will have the preceding year to form a range). Having the range (or not) is not illegal per any common copyright law. There are a wide range of how copyright statements are made on websites, due to the wide range of people putting them there. There has been a push to ignore (legally) all copyright statements on the Internet for this very reason.

One example of incorrect copyright statements found online: It is more common to see "Copyright" followed by the copyright symbol on websites, but by copyright law, the symbol should come first. Does that make the content not enforceable in court? No, content is copyrighted whether any statement exists at all, although it is easier to prove the intent to to a copyright if any form of statement is present.

Having written many legal documents with copyright statements, I am always conscious of copyright statements on websites. I have seen many large corporation websites that have a single year on a page. Many of those same pages, I know have had significant changes since the copyright year, but the copyright line still did not have a range. It may depend on what software they used to edit pages or the common footer is a separate file that got overlooked, or it was intentional. It is becoming more common for web developers to have the last year in a range be the current year programmatically. That way at midnight of the start of a new year, the copyright line changes. Since it does not really matter whether the date accurately reflects that the web page had "substantial changes" or not, it is totally permissible. Mainly, if nothing else, it ensures people that think an older date suggests the company or product is out of date, that everything is just fine, or for a current year date to indicate the company is too new to be trusted, or is a scam, that it is not. Granted year ranges win over a single year date.

If you judge by a single date to be scam, you will have to start distrusting a lot of companies that we have trusted for a long time. Likewise, date ranges do not imply a company should be trusted either. Do you trust Google? Some do, so do not. But the fact remains that they are a large company. We have heard of them for several years, whether we trust them or not.

The copyright date really isn't significant enough to be of any concern or mistrust. The rest of your comment outweighs the copyright year concern by a factor of 1,000 to one, and I agree with you on those points.

MikeR, mass censorship of comments is going on today... the vendor is using a bait and switch marketing ploy in claiming it is free but demanding registration and payment if you want it to do the job of recovering any files which you only find out when trying to recover any files.

Alireza/Gary, it's likely that the calculation includes any anticipated Daylight Savings Time change. Without knowing your time zones, it's safe to guess that between now and Oct. 26th, Alireza will "exit" DST, but Gary won't.

That being said, I do find it a little odd that this company would track their 6-month license down to the _minute_. Most other places will take it to midnight of the next day. I mean, what's 8 hours between friends?

Daniel, would you treat a friend like they do with their marketing? I wouldn't that is why they consider 8 hours too much because we are not classed as friends of theirs but suckers and dupes!
