I tried several email-addresses at
without receiving av key.
Maybe a had the program before and lost it.
Probably I never would have any use of it anyway.
I'll remember the name Softorbits...
.. but not for any good.

Tried M3 data recovery to scan data from my RAW flash drive, took one minute to find all data, much quicker than SoftOrbits Flash Drive Recovery.

I've had the absolute best luck running "Parted Magic" as a live disk, to get the life back into several "dead" flash drives. Recovering data from them has always been iffy though, and I had no luck with this one. Uninstalled.

@ Comment No.#: 10 You will need "GParted" freely available at "http://gparted.sourceforge.net/" and boot from the CD in order to correct your flash drive partitions.

I will save this one as it might come in handy when I'm ready to migrate to an SSD.

this software is no good as it was unable to find the deleted files on my flash drive.

Failed with both my tests using a Lexar USB drive and a HP USB drive, both of which were only 8 gigs. Certainly not a program worth thirty dollars.

On the positive side, it didn't damage any existing files.

Tested it.
Took about 10 to 20 minutes to scan a 16GB USB drive.
Pretty good results.
Found 23 folders containing thousands of photos that were previously deleted.
Did not bother to carry out the recovery process.
Good enough to keep.

It did not revert to a Trial version after running a few times.

Installed and registered without any problems, that is good as it got, it found my flash drive but when it came to the selection to search for it crashed with a runtime error. Could easily be my system as this install is approaching five years old and becoming cantankerous.
Thanks to #3 TeeK all is not lost as I downloaded his HP format program.

Not to replace this program, but as an adjunct to it - If you use any sort of USB flash memory, you really should have the HP USB disk storage format tool. For years it has been the leader in formatting "stuck" flash memory.

No file recovery program can recover anything from a card that cannot be read, so you run the HP program first and then recover as much as you can with a file recovery program such as today's offering.

The latest version does not seem to be hosted by HP anymore, but is available from Google drive:


That seemed a bit strange, so I ran the URL past virustotal:


Which gave it a clean bill of health, so I downloaded the latest version myself, as I only had version 2.1.8a and then ran the downloaded version past virustotal as well, again it came up clean:


I have used the HP tool five times in the past on USB cards that could not be read, written to, or formatted by Windows. On three of those occasions I was able to get the card back and recover the files from it. Twice the card still remained "stuck" though, so it does not always work, but has worked enough in the past for me to always try the HP software before considering the files lost forever.

@1 Karl

I had more luck: the second and third time I started the program, it was still registered.

Also there was a thanks from "flash drive recovery".

The recovered files will be placed in 1 map and other files with the same name will be overwritten.
3 files with the name "info.txt" will become 1 file.

Here is the old review

A small not resizable window opens. This is “really” a flash drive recovery program. It will not detect any other drive, than a flash drive…

The internal frecover.exe version is

We had had already version 3.0 on May 29th, 2014. Here are the old reviews:


I was only interested, if anything has changed, making my old comment obsolete.

I first scanned an 8 GB USB stick (flash drive) formatted FAT32. Have a look, what it found...


The drive is full of old, deleted and new data...

A second test with fresh "quick" formatted 8 GB Drive. There have been 8 GB programs and data on the drive.
The software didn't find anything (as in my previous test).


With the second start the program returned to unregistered.


Read my old review. At least it did not crash anymore in my short test... Still unusable.

Uninstalled via reboot.
