Can't Activate the Program
It downloaded and installed OK, but when I click on "Activate" it will not activate the program. Still shows as "unregistered." I am running Win 7 Pro. Any ideas? Thanks.

Dan, check the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\East Imperial Soft\Magic Uneraser 3.8\Settings" registry key to see it you have "UserName" and "LicenseKey" values there.

I downloaded with no problem. Installation was also easy. I tried to hit Activate but it never executes. When I open the program and look at "About" it always states unregistered. I followed the instructions in the readme file but I can't get it to activate. When I hit "Register" I get the box to purchase a license. Any Ideas? I'm running Win 7 Pro.
Thanks

Correction to my previous message.

This is incorrect:
[You can also choose to recover based on the [content] of the files.
i.e. you are looking for a text file that contains the word "noodles".]


Content-aware recovery is based on signature search.
In addition to drive analysis the software searches for deleted files using their signatures (content search). Located files are saved in a “Content-Aware Analysis” folder on a root drive and sorted by extension.
When using “Content-Aware Analysis”, all information about found files (name, size, date, attributes) will be lost.

Installed and activated.
Contrary to some comments, the user interface is very clean and good.
You can choose to use the Wizard.
You can choose whether to have the program automatically open with the wizard or not.
I tested it to recover some text files.
You can choose the file type.
You can also choose to recover based on the [content] of the files.
i.e. you are looking for a text file that contains the word "noodles".
The scan was very fast.
The software is able to handle Unicode file names.
{Before recovery was executed, I could not understand the tick box choice [preserve NTFS streams]
So I unticked the box. }
It was able to recover the files I wanted.
When opened, the recovered text files were complete with nothing missing.
You can choose which device/folder to send the recovered files.

Verdict: Good.

Installed and activated on Win 10 anniversary 64 bit.

Cluttered interface once navigated can be set to find just images.

Ran it on my 500GB SSD and after around 20 minutes it found some 86,000 deleted images. Unfortunately only about 450 were complete, some 600 were incomplete and the rest had no dimensions, irrecoverable. So 99.4% were not recovered.
Not very impressed.

John, file recovery depends on a on un-fragmented hard drive. It is easy enough to keep a standard hard drive defragmented and recover any file that has not been written over. With solid-state drives defragmenting is not recommended. Still, when a file is fragmented the cataloging system for the hard drive is just not going to work. Even with multi-cataloging found in modern operating systems the chance of failure of file recovery is great as the master catalog is changed when the file is deleted.

When a file is deleted a zero overrides the first bit the file. If the file is contiguous on deleting it, it is simple to recover the file. You can even often times undelete the file manually. Especially if you remember first character on deletion it is usually simple to recover a file and most any recovery program will work.

kc4cop, I ran Recuva on the same drive and it took just 2 minutes ( 1/10th the time). None of the 86,000 images had been overwritten.

Fortunately I don't actually need to recover any deleted data. I regularly backup and backup the backup. I even carry my Thunderbird Email backup and important documents on a USB flash drive (encrypted) with me at all times.

My photographs are available across two laptops and a desktop.

Belt and braces is what I do to avoid losses.

vanierstein, Same here.
This is the first program that has been given away here though that actually has detected the USB Disk, I wasn't expecting it. Windows still gives me the "Unrecognised USB Device Detected" when connected and nothing comes up in File explorer or even the Windows Disk Management attached devices.
Yet this software actually detected it and recovered what it could.
I would use this program and just be prepared to wait whilst it scans and attempts to recover. It did stall several times, but I found pressing cancel actually got it to start again (unstall) (if that's a word).

Recuvra is rubbish. I have the Pro license and it does nothing in this given situation.

Kind regards
Richard

I have had a USB Drive that Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and 10.1 tell me they are unable to recognise. I've had this memory stick for around 10 years now and it has the only copy of my pictures of my mom from many years ago, hence I refuse to just throw it away and periodically try to recover them.
Yesterdays Disk Doctor didn't even find it, let alone allow me to select recover from it.
I have tried windows management console many times.
But would you believe it, this one, todays software, actually detected the disk and is now currently recovering files from it (so, so happy)
It does say it's going to take many many hours and that my 32GB USB Disk Drive is now 2TB, but I don't mind.
If this succeeds where so many have failed (yes, even you recuva) I will be purchasing a license, and a lifetime license too, and no, I don't care how much it costs. At least this one works and also surprisingly has scaling so it looks as it should in 4K HDR.
Kudos to you East Imperial Soft, Kudos

After installing I formatted a portable hard drive, created a new folder and copied a whole pile of files of various .jpg, .mp3, .ogg, .exe, etc ) formats into the folder then deleted it. After deleting the folder I emptied the recycle bin using empty recycle bin option on the desktop then ran the Magic Uneraser - It did recover every file .. So far so good, but when after recovery none (not one) of the recovered files could be opened. Totally useless!

Installed and activated with no issues on my Windows 10 anniversary edition 64 bit. Did you disable anti-virus etc?
PS. The Windows 10 anniversary edition update requires any anti-virus product other than Defender to be uninstalled or it will crash (BSOD) and roll back.I uninstalled AVG and now have just Defender.

I could not find any reputable reviews on this software, which should have been submitted for review. Won't touch it for that reason.

Reply   |   Comment by chad  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

chad , a silly statement especially if the program is a new one. Giveawayoftheday often serves as a launching ground for new programs. When a program is released to the market someone has to be first to review it. If you do not want to participate in early review of file then do not download it. But it is hardly fair to the developer to publicly say that you are not going to download it because you have not been able to locate a review. There is even a chance that you missed a review.

This product has a misleading name! This cannot "Unerase" it undeletes or recovers deleted or quick formated partitions lost files that have not been overwritten with other data but does not and cannot possibly recover files that were erased from the hard drive using procedures that perform that function like heidi.ie eraser program, even if you choose the weakest eraser setting of single pass of zeros. Erase free space with a single pass and this will recover nothing because it simply cannot "Unerase".

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

TK, for common use both words are interchangeable. Even heard of Norton Unerase a decade ago? :P
If you're looking to recover overwritten data, be repared to pay large bucks for professional service. This simply can't be done at home with free software.

Reply   |   Comment by temp10min  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

temp10min, sadly for common COMPUTER FILE usage Erase and Delete and therefore Unerease and Undelete/Recover are NOT interchangable! If I was looking to recover overwritten/erased data it is technically impossible on modern drives regardless of the money you throw at it even with tunnelling electron microscopes and studdying the physical alignment of the individual magnetic domains!
Ask Microsoft if windows by default erases a file or deletes it and they will say the default action is to move a file to be deleted to the recycle bin and when you empty the recycle bin the files directory entry is marked as deleted and the store original attributes in the recycle bin database deleted and the space allocated to it is returned to the pool of unallocated clusters but the contents of the previous file remains untouched until it is overwritten by other data. It is never deliberatly overwritten or erased by windows in its default configuration.
BTW just because one or two other companies have missused terminology it does not change the fact that it is inaccurate and misleading.

A really good recovery program
Installed and activated in around a minute on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, Anniversary Update 1
It won't last long as Windows 10 Update 2 comes out soon, and I don't intend to update but instead to do a full factory reset and install Windows 10 Update 2 from .ISO as this tends to be the best way
Thanks again GOTD
And also East Imperial Software

Richard Sebire, I might seem a bit slow on the knowledge of Programs, but can you tell me what the difference is by doing it the way you say? Also what is .ISO?
I usually let windows do the updated whenever they send it through, so I do not understand what you are saying.
Thanks for any info.

Reply   |   Comment by Alen  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Alen, Hi
I use the Windows media creation tool from Microsoft to create a disc to install each major update fresh. I found that going from Windows 10 to Update 1 caused me lots of problems, so by doing a complete fresh install I avoid any issues and it also keeps my install size right down.
An ISO is the International Standards Organisation Format, it's basically a disc you can burn off.

The next major update to Windows 10 is being tested at the moment over on MSDN and when its released I wont be using Windows update to update, I will just download the ISO and do a full clean install that way.

My drivers tend to cause an issue and after the Anniversary Update it took quite a while for me to find my files and thus, I will just back everything up regularly and do a clean install instead.

Hope this helps.
Kind regards
Richard

Alen, I don't have time to write all what I know about ISO,but simplified it is file with ISO extension(usually used for managing very large programs in single file). What Richard is trying to say is--when W10 update 2 will be available he wont install it as common windows OS update,instead he would do that via ISO image of W10 Pro Ann Update 2 (You could download W 10 OS in ISO format from official Microsoft site).And yes,that's the best way,but what all that have with today's offer is beyond me....best example to understand that is free upgrade from W 7,8 or 8.1 to W10.Doing that as a normal windows update was waste of time.

Richard Sebire, Thanks for telling me about the .iso way of upgrading Windows 10. I will try that next time.
I'm still having problems with the Anniversary update even after checking all of my drivers.
One particular annoyance is that Windows 10 still keeps freezing for about 30 seconds at random times. I've tried all the suggestions following a Google and Windows search, but to no avail.

Ken Maughan,
The Windows 10 Creator Update is available on the MSDN and as a "Canary" build at Microsoft at present, but as soon as it goes to RTM (early 2017) I'm going to grab it via the Media Creation Tool and do another full clean install.
Looking forward to this one as it removes the need to license your 3D printing software which with Adobe is rather expensive.

Ken Maughan, On your slow down issues, make sure you have Shadow copys off, restore points off, and if your using an SSD make sure your defrager is off also.
If its none of them then its Windows Defender kicking in and scanning. Even if you install another Anti-Virus, Defender will still run on its own in the background.
If you want an Anti-Virus though just ask I have one left over.
Kind regards, and I hope your Windows 10 experience improves.

Joe,
On a full clean install, make sure you remove all the original partitions whilst installing, and yes, it will also allow you to select your privacy options, so make sure you untick all those telemetry box's if you want.
I also when given the option don't install Cortina, as I have no use for it as of yet.

If you didn't set your privacy options correctly during install you can use a program called Disable Windows 10 Tracking

I seem to doing a full system install on average ever 9 months or so since Windows 8.

Hope this helps and that you have a really good day.
Kind regards
Richard

Reply   |   Comment by John  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Joe,
your drive partition is reformatted, meaning you start with a fresh installation of Windows, complete with drivers and followed by all of your software.
Not worth the bother if your PC is older and new drivers are not available because if that is so and the next Windows (coming in spring 2017) cannot find drivers (acceptable to Microsoft, mostly nothing to do with function) you are left with a fair problem. If Microsoft were to supply decent upgrades, no one would have to start off afresh. Mind you, lots of people have managed to corrupt fresh installations in next to no time. Reckless trying out all rubbish followed by cleansing is a sure and proven way to cause problems.

Reply   |   Comment by Mike  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Mike,
Hello Mike, sorry for the late delay.
Yes a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 64bit "Creator Edition" (aka Service Pack 2) Which already exists as a "Canary" build and will be released early in 2017 will in fact erase everything, including programs, file system changes, settings and well, everything.
It takes me about a day to reinstall everything, as I have several terabytes of storage in my OneDrive, so after reinstalling, its all just automatically redownloaded and installed after, I have altered my settings to how I want My system and also I only start to install my programs once Windows its self has fully updated also.
I use Firfox's 64bit browser "Nightly" which stores everything for me in the cloud so when I reinstall it and sign in it gives me back my book marks ect, so that's shortens that problem.
And I also use Sticky Password, which is a great program as it remembers every password for every account/website/ and yes, even program, so this seriously reduces the head ache with a reinstall.

Reinstalling Windows can take somewhere around 2-3 hours and then its back better than ever, fast again with no bloat ware or any left over software packages.

Here's a question Mike. When you go into the control panel, and click uninstall programs, how many Microsoft Visual C++ entries do you have? Your only supposed to 1. So as you can see after time using Windows, it really starts to really clog itself up.
Thus the full clean reinstall is justifiable to me.

Hope all is well. thank you for the nice reply and I hope you have a really good day.
Kind regards
Richard

John,
I also do not use an Anti-Virus suite anymore as Defender has to be running in the background also, and I don't need the system drain to be honest or the evitable conflicts that arise.

Poor old Anti-Virus software vendors are aware of it also.

I sell software and computer games via my own website and can't even give full 1 year license's to Pro Anti-Virus suites away.
I used to be able to sell a £50 Anti-Virus suite for £20, now I can't even sell a £50 one for 0.69p
The shame of it all is Microsoft's Defender just isn't as good, especially at Zero day attacks.
And once they are all out of business, when a new threat appears (malware/rootkit/keylogger ect) their will be no viable alternative.

Such a shame

Comparing to the yesterday's Disk Drill this one really does recover deleted files, not only browser cache and temp files, and scans so much faster!
And you can choose what type of files you want to recover in the Wizard, really neat.
