This software does not have much interest for me to recover erased files. Unlike RECUVA (free), no possibility to choose an isolated directory, it scans the entire disk - which means that it is very slow for a big disk.

Faced to a crash of hard disk system for example, it doesn't implement the possibility of creating an emercy repair disk (or bootable USB) - which limits its use.
In the latter case Lazersoft recovery (free) put in bootable usb, served me 2 times successfully.

I highly recommend this software.

In case of big hard drive problem that had become RAW for example, I tried a lot of recovery softwares without success except with the software "EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard 5.8.5 Pro (not free) that got me back (in 3 days , it must be said) almost all 700 GB of my hard drive.It is an old version, but the new version had failed to do the job.

Now, I regularly make backups with aomei-backupper free that I also recommend. It is much better than to try to recover system or hard drive failure.

.....And everything rolls. Is not life simple when one has knowledge?

NOW if only the program could make a backup image of partitions or whatever it is that the user wants to recover data files etc from, then this program would be Magoshare Data Recovery would be PERFECT, ... but sadly it doesn't have a pre-recovery backup function

Until then RECUVA by Piriform is the only solution I know of that creates a backup image prior to data recovery!

I previously had the 2.0 version of this from an earlier giveaway, I uninstalled the old one and installed this... it insists on uninstalling the previous version... Did not find any noticable changes and todays version retains the earlier versions license activation so will not show the key button mentioned in the included readme.txt file.

If the key button does not exist in the GUI then it is activated/registered already don't fret!

It defaults to performing an indepth scan of the chosen drive so is a right pain to use on large drives.

This is a question for Magoshare Data Recovery - I was able to install and activate today's giveaway and apparently successfully recover over 20 video files (.mts, .mp4, .swf, etc.) from a micro sd card, however - I was unable to actually play any of the video files, despite trying many different video playback software solutions (VLC, Windows Media Player, Irfanview (for some flash files), MPC, DVDFAB media player and others. Does this sound like a typical result? Or is there something I should be doing to make the "recovered" files, now on my hard drive, actually play? I recognize that there may not be but before I gave up I thought I should ask. Thanks for today's giveaway - apart from not being able to view the recovered videos, the program seemed to work (installed, activated, scanned without crashing, found files, recovered them).

Installed internal D drive Win 10 x64 Pro. Ran ok. Didn't use the license yet. When ran it asked which drive to scan. Left on default C. Forgetaboutit. Began super long scan. Made some lunch & only 15% done showing at least 1M files scanned. Initially didn't seem to allow scanning of just 1 folder to test. It did seem to show the folders being scanned but drilling into one failed to force program to narrow scan to only that one. Uninstalling.
btw MostIWant has a USB memory card program give. Recuva stays the fave. Appreciate the lifetime free offer for a change.
End of install sends you to their site for some info & free uninstalled prg (prefer Revo uninstaller).

Thank you very much, seems like a good one to have.
Installed easily on WinXP. Tried to install also on USB stick, no success so far. Did not get an option to install on it. Anyone can help? Perhaps someone from Magoshare?
Now that it is installed in C/ProgramFiles, will it find and recover (from certain areas or folders) files on the C HD on which it is installed?

Thanks again.

WOW! I am generally very skeptical about any GOTD programs, and paranoid to the point I install them on a "trash box" first, just to make sure they are OK. I just installed this easily, flawlessly on my Windows 10 live box. I have an SD card that contains JPEG and RAW images, and that card has those images deleted, and formatted. It not only found all those "lost" images, but when I clicked for thumnail views, it even shows the thumbnails for the RAW files, not just the JPEGs. I use a weird format, and *most* of the programs I try will not show the images for the RAW files. This one is a definate keeper, and I am SO glad I checked in for today's Giveaway. WOW!! WOW!! There was no BS installing, either. No signups, give your emails, jack around... just plain install and here's your key right in the readme file. WELL DONE Magoshare and GOTD! Thank you!!

tuxedotraveler, were you able to recover AND successfully access the recovered files you mentioned? I ask because I also installed today's giveaway, scanned a micro sd card that just last night apparently "lost" a video file, successfully "found" over 20 video files of various types (.mp4s, .mts, .swf, etc.), successfully recovered those files to my C: drive and...was unable to play any of the recovered files despite trying MPC player, IrfanView, DVDFab Media Player, Windows Media Player, VLC, etc. - you get the picture. So I'm bummed that despite the program seeming to work so well, and all the recovered files showing their correct file extensions, size and other details, none of the video files work. The pictures DO work however - just no videos.

Reply   |   Comment by James  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

James, after I saw your message, I returned to the SD card to re-evaluate and truly recover. This time, I selected a couple RAW files, each from different cameras - because it not only recovered what I previously formatted, it found things from a couple years ago, long since deleted. I also selected a Video file that it found. I asked it to recover the items. It 100% successfully recovered every thing I asked it to grab, and I went in and hit "play" on the video just to be sure it wasn't just the video image clip but would actually run. I used VLC and it ran perfectly. I'm super surprised, because I have many of these programs. VLC was the only program I tried, but it did run perfectly. I'm sure sorry to hear of your difficulty.

Thanks for your thoughtful reply tuxedotraveler. After trying the program on another card, I had a similar experience as you. Only some of the videos would play, and some of the recovered files seemed to be a collection of 2 second clips of what were once longer videos, but at least I can report some successful playback attempts. The program is definitely worth trying - and thanks again for your feedback. Have a great day!

Investigating this software developers website reveals an extensive tutorial source, as-well-as, freeware to try features of their offerings. I will try this GOTD offering and consider buying their offerings if they work satisfactorly. Many users don't know how to disable firewalls, antivirus and most importantly use a try-out computer that you can afford to corrupt then reinstall the operating system. Using administrator mode to install software can make a difference to achieve a complete installation.

The developer claims:
.."it also can recover lost files due to format, reformat, erasure, logical error, hard drive crash, OS upgrade/reinstallation, virus infection, partition loss, unexpected power off access denied, and other unknown reasons."

Since 99% of all HD failures occurs on drive C: and this software is installed and registered on drive C:, how is it possible to recover drive C: if it failed to boot or was reformatted by mistake?

Unless a recovery software creates an USB self booting drive with this software installed on it, the claims by this developer is bogus.

Marty, If the C:-drives fails, take it out and attach it to another PC.
And start the recovery with the Windows and recovery on that PC.
OR build a live-USB/CD with recovery and work with that.
This evening I let examine a defective drive, a backup-HD and this software could recover some of the content:

and some of the recovered files:

Marty, you should never install recovery programs on the c: \. always ensure that you have a partition of at least 15 GB. Then you can (partially) retrieve lost files.

Marty,
It looks like it, that they heard you.
Today, Monday there is a program for you.
"or you can use it to clone an existing Windows 10/8/7 OS installation to a USB drive as portable Windows. "
So if you have installed Magoshare Data Recovery 2.1 in Windows, today, monday, you can create a fully functional Win-USB-stick with recovery.

Haven't tried this as I have another that does the job for me, but one sentence stood out from the above offer:

"NB: Lifetime license" (I expect this doesn't include updates, but nevertheless better than 6 or 12 mths)

Now that's a true giveaway! Well done Magoshare and GOTD.

Installed and registered with no problems on Win 10 (64) but it failed to detect and of the memory cards I tried and only detected 1 of my four external USB drives. Crashed during a scan of one of my internal drives. Rebooted and tried again but still crashed as soon as the scan started. Doesn't live up to the description given. Uninstalled.

In description -this software will recover lost files due to erasure.

The erasure completely destroys all the electronic data permanently,

So this software is sensational - does something, that not even
government agencies can't


Magoshare Data Recovery- answer if that is truth

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+12)

Bob, you can recover data even after you format your drive, so don't leave stupid comments if your IT knowledge is lower than 0 ;)

Reply   |   Comment by Razvy  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-20)

Razvy, (Let us pass over your insulting language and arrogance.)
This is frightening. Horrible!!! Everything you put on the computer must remain for ever and ever! Even if you reformat a drive completely, government agencies can always recover what you wrote. So Bob's second sentence is false? (His third is admittedly grammatically meaningless, but that does not matter.) So all remains until you die and beyond, unless you take, physically smash, and then burn, the entire disc? Bad enough you cannot completely and utterly and permanently and fully erase (not just delete) a file by overwriting and rearranging the magnetism, but you cannot do this to a whole disc without destroying it physically? Big Brother is here with us all the time?
I pray, with little hope, that both you and the developer are wrong. It would relieve me to know this.

Reply   |   Comment by Laxative  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

Bob, I think they are making the mistake that a lot of people make when it comes to deleted and erased files. Deleted files can usually be recovered because when deleted only the entry in the drive's table of contents is removed, the file(s) are still on the drive, whereas an erased (wiped) file not only has it's entry removed from the table of contents, the file and all pointers to that file are overwritten with random data, or whatever you chose to use and are impossible to recover because none of the original file exists on the drive. As for this software being able to recover an erased file, I'd buy it at almost any price, but sadly this software doesn't come close to it's description, I couldn't get it work without it constantly crashing, in effect, as far as I'm concerned this software is useless.

Robert, Magoshare Data Recovery found 11 JPG files on a 2 GB (Medion) memory card that I did not know existed and recovered with the date 2016-09-23. Also 3 little AVI-files.

Robert,
You are quite right, erased and deleted are not the same. Microsoft confused us in early DOS by making the two commands interchangeable, but there is a difference (more than between Bob and Robert — sorry I could not resist that one, no harm intended. Further, for GAOTD, I am not a Robert.)

Reply   |   Comment by Laxative  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Razvy, apart from you being impolite to our friend Bob, it looks like it is you that is lacking in IT skills/knowledge ... Bob was talking about ERASURE not DELETING which are two different things, if you read my reply to Bob's post you might learn something. Erased data cannot be recovered with this type of software. A formatted drive is different from a wiped (erased drive) ... Do catch up!

Reply   |   Comment by Robert  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Razvy, Formatting a modern magnetic harddrive (anything that connects to a PATA, SATA, SCSI or USB interface) does NOT overwrite or erase the drives surface it overwrites just the file system structures and root directory and if you choose the full rather than quick format it also READS the entire partitions data area to locate unreadable sectors to add to the filesystems BAD sector list. While I don't usually resort to this sort of language you are treating Bob how you want to be treated? So please don't leave stupid comments since your self-proffessed IT knowledge is considerably worse that Bob!
