I downloaded the program and Activated the program and then installed it.

I got called away to help somebody get to the hospital and now that I am home I went to register the program with the appropriate PROMO CODE and clicked the "Get registration data" button, but the registration form says in RED PRINT:

Bad promo code, user name or Email. Please check all parameters and try again.

Dear Developers- I am so grateful as my Windows 8 went went south -- maybe because of an install that went bad. I've always been able to repair but Windows 8 is something else and it is hateful OEM came with new computer.

Hoping for some help with your program (corrupted files very possible). Anyhow I am angry and sad that as usual we have 291 people who have voted your program down with something greater than 25 comments. Wish it were that comment required to vote. That would cure alot. I can only imagine how much work it takes to develop such software then additionally to give it away here. Thank you thank you!

Does this program only recover files, or does it also recover the file system structure? Can it make a non=accessible partition/disk accessible or boot-able? Any recommendations for software that makes a windows disk bootable again? I have tried the built-in Windows Recovery tools. (Win7)

I thought I'd give it a try.
a week ago, I deleted the partition and did a re-install.
After I was done, I realized there was stuff (on the desktop) I forgot to back up.
So mainly for my own curiosity - I'm running it.
W7 home premium, 2 TB WD HD. 6 core Athlon processor (if that matters)

the quick scan took about 2 minutes and displayed a folder called lost files
(or something similar) in which there was nothing recoverable.
The detailed scan - has been running for 4 hours and is at 45%.
I expect about 1:00 pm(ish) to see my results.

IT would be interesting to be able to recover any of my 8.5 GB folders
of 30,000 some odd pictures - but I'm not holding my breath.
I do have a 2 year old DVD backup, but that's still a bit of a hole to fill.

What appears to be my final observation?

I'm set to recover a gazillion pictures
and the program decides to tell me it's not registered.
And that - after The install procedure told me it was

Basically there's 12 or so hours of productivity gone.

Final Comment - I installed Recuva Free
It did everything that Hetman wouldn't and
I was able to browse the very same Picture Icons
that Hetman wouldn't allow me
- and I'm done what I needed to accomplish.

I have an old computer in which recovery partition has disappeared for some reason. It is otherwise working fine running Vista Basic. With today's giveaway delivered to the door, I felt it was an opportunity to find the lost parition without much effort. Today's GOTD looked good, their website also very informative. I used the portable version first; it started but then hanged the system. PC restarted, antivirus disabled, portable version tried again, same problem. Made use of GOTD and installed today's version. Started... same problem. PC just hangs and has to be forced shut down. Not sure why, probably my PC...
It didn't work for me.

Registration without problems. Thanks!
Tried the software with a multiboot USB-stick which wasn't recognized by the system anymore.
It showed me all the files I was missing with the proper names, other software failed to do that.
Software allowed to create an image of the stick which I did before doing any recovery actions. Image compression was offered but I didn't see any effect on the output. Didn't evaluate the image though. Software was not offering to repair the damaged partition table from USB-stick but recovered all selected files to another drive. Was hoping for recovery on the damaged drive but can live with the other option to.
Fazit: Recommendable

Not working properly with 8 GB SD card with 26 MB free. For example, it finds 2 times the same folder containing 405 MB of files, and 2 times a 1 GB folder. All files marked good. That's not possible. Compared with Recuva (both software using fast scan): two different stories. At least Recuva tells which file overwrites another.

The portable software works fine so many thanks to Hetman and both thumps up.

You start program in virtual XP and then try found partitions on W8?

Please install Hetman Partition Recovery on Windows 8 and run analyze under W8.

You can use portable version if your want - http://hetmanrecovery.com/download/hetman_partition_recovery.zip. Unzip files on USB flash. Then connect drive to Notebook and start program under W8. After that run analyze for disc C:.

I will not install an untested program on my W8.1 64 laptop. I need it daily and cannot risk something goinq wrong. Therefore I run a portable. But your portable did not accept the key I got on your site earlier this morning. So I used a portable I made myself on a virtual XP, activated with the key. I ran that portable on the real W8.1 64 laptop, with the above mentioned results.

I will test your portable.

The portable ran "fine", but the results are questionable. What to think of an Excel file of 75GB??
The programme wanted to save it to the same partition it was located. All my data are on partition D, mostly in DropBox. It was no surprise to me that 75GB Excel file could not be retrieved.

Like I mentioned earlier in a different reply comment, most of the "free" recovery software listed by Mr. Donald Hick, is on a trial basis! Meaning either, depending on the software, that you can use their software one time or that you may have to pay in order to download the recovered files that were recovered for free. But, with this free giveaway software, you can download it for free and then use it as often as you would like to! To me, that is a better alternative!

I think that it's great that you provided a list of alternative recovery software! But, I noticed that most are on a trial basis! Does that mean, that you can recover your files just once and that's it? Or, that it will show you the recovered files, but in order to download them, you have to pay to do that? Just curious that's all.

Reply   |   Comment by Mandrakeman  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

If this was meant to be a list of freeware alternatives then it's very misleading.

If it was meant to be a list of cheaper alternatives worth exploring, then it's badly flawed as well as mis-timed, seeing as how today's giveaway is just that -- free -- and the only time when it would be worth checking out against commercial rivals is if a re-install is necessary or if you're so impressed with today's software, you're considering buying it at retail.

I won't be alone in grinning wryly at all the silly instant upvotes given so unthinkingly to your post -- upvotes which may well make others arriving here think oooh, look, lots of other freebies found by Mr Hick!! --so here are the facts, provided as much out of fairness to other GOTDers as out of basic courtesy to today's developer:

Easus Partition Recovery (actually it's Easus Data Recovery): $69.95

7-Data Recovery: $49.95

Remo PRO Edition: $99.95 (there are cheaper versions but anyone would have to be an idiot to fall for this particular developer's selling pitch whereby "different" file types are found but others not -- yeah, right;

Stellar Partition Recovery: $119

MiniTool Data Recovery: $69

As will be evident, "if you want to save your dollars" then staying well clear of REMO PRO Edition and Stellar Partition Recovery is highly advisable, so I don't know why you've come on here to publicise them.

As an aside, I do wish when people post stuff like the above they would CHECK FIRST. It's not GOTD's responsibility to do so -- but yours.

Finally, seeing as how today's developer is on here -- and kudos to him for doing so -- I really would recommend that you re-visit your price point. You're up against a really, really BIG name in the form of Easus so you're going to be much better off commercially, going for volume sales on sticker prices that undercut Easus rather than persisting in following the bonkers route of developers like REMO and Stellar.

Installed the software on Windows 8 machine

Pors:
• Give you a list of recovered files, you can select files of your choice
• Take less time to scan your drive
• Let you to preview recovered files

Cons:
• File are not with the original names
• Quite heavy application for a system
• Very expensive compared to other data recovery tool

Downloaded and install the software on my Windows 7 based system
Its working is similar to other recovery application. Except on thing “Preview” option. I tried to preview recovered files but didn’t get succeeded. Tool design is ok, but not that much friendly. New computer might face problems while using it. I had big confusion about its price...in purchase page it’s showing $99 and on GAOTD they changed it to $133.2...Can you guys clear the things that what you actually want to do???

It is commendable that the developer follows these discussions and provides input. It is certainly something to be encouraged. For his benefit, I provide the following bona fide advice.

A simple, clear tutorial is a good, if not essential, feature.

But an even better feature is an intuitive use which doesn't require reading (and remembering) instructions or following tutorials.

I dare go even further and say from experience that, for the average user who is spoiled by well planned interfaces, the moment reading instructions becomes necessary, the program can be considered a half-failure.

I have to totally agree with tomcat's comment, on the representative of this software, following up on most of the comments left by computer users here @ GAOTD! That is a rare occurrence for software representatives to do this, without being required to do so! It's also a commendable quality that most representatives of software lack, when offering their software here for free. I just wish that more software representatives would do this follow up, just like this software rep. did today! That way, it shows that they are not just interested in their software, but that they back their software claims as well!

Reply   |   Comment by Mandrakeman  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+33)

Regarding the "even better feature is an intuitive use"... I agree that software should be developed without the need for extensive documentation. But the page linked by the developer is an introduction to the software for marketing purposes. This online document seems like an explanation of the software before a customer purchases. The software does have a programmed wizard that appears to walk you through the options and processes.

Installed and NOT registered on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install.

A company with an US address & phone. An active blog exists with some good contributions. A to 20 cent calculated prize, but on the purchase page, the prize is at this moment US$ 99. You can download a portable version here:
http://hetmanrecovery.com/hetman_partition_recovery_download.htm

The readme.txt links to a registration page. After entering name, email and promo code, I did not receive an email with the registration data but...

http://i.imgur.com/md8L8cD.png

Have I really to "like" the software to see my registration? Really??? I did not "like" and started the software without registration...

A clear structured, resizable window opens. I selected an SD card on an USB 3.0 card reader for recovering and short test. In this case the program loops with the (German) message: No feedback
http://i.imgur.com/74hmaqi.png

The program did not finish and must be killed by the task manager. I'm sorry, that I have no damaged hard disk for testing. May work on other cases.

It's a general problem to test such recovery tools. You have to rely, that they work, when you need them. If they don't work with a simple test SD card, you can only hope...

Uninstalled via reboot

Tested on windows xpsp3 it worked very smoothly; the optional fast scan was very fast for a 8 GB disk, the scan results [image] can be recovered by different ways [image]
The found files is shown with their original name all the thing is to pick them in thus auto generated folders, certainly there is files that can't be recovered.
