Easy to install -- no hoops to jump, no email address harvesting, and seems to work well. I had no problem locating a plethora of deleted files on a usb stick.

The program presents these deleted files fairly nicely as well, though like many of these programs seems to display current as well as deleted files. Unlike many, seems to demarcate them, but could perhaps do a better job of doing this.

I don't have the time to run the recovery process and see how good of a job it does at this.

So far I'm liking what I see.

Installs & activates, but shows no disk drives & on exit the process remains & has to be manually removed before it can be run again - but still no internal/external drives shown on my W7.

This evening I did install some recovery-programs and let test a 2Gb-stick.
And there were different results. the first 3949 files, the second only 8(or just 8, that was not shown in the Explorer), third 800 and the last one 5541(also in RAW)

Tell you, this is the best recovery software out there!!! I recovered my external hard-drive that had failed so many many times it was broken, this hard drive is almost ten years old and its really broken, literally a DEAD ONE!! it won't load and it won't even show drive when plugged in. I thought of destroying it a while ago.
Then, all of a sudden, like MAGIC this software brought it up to life!! Truly AMAZING software, and its a lifetime license, just wow!!!

Samson,
As I said above.............covers EVERYTHING BUT XP.......?
and yours Drive was 10 years old.?
DUMB MS.........how many drives had ANY THE ABOVE Systems back then when XP was the Best they ever made, AND STILL IS.
Seems developers forget that there are STILL 100 MILLION USERS AROUND THE WORLD OF XP.

Samson, Yeah, this is either a shill (hence the negative votes) -- or you got lucky. And therefore you might have got lucky with almost any recovery software. Maybe it was just a question of time -- and this day you tried Magoshare. (Not sure I like that name -- reminds one of maggots....) Or you only tried other utilities before that weren't even as good as this....

Still, congrats if you got lucky. Did you IMAGE the disk before recovery??

In fact, I'd like to know the name of a good, FREE, disk imaging utility -- any suggestions anyone?

After this, I kinda hope GOTD gives the "recovery" market a bit of a rest for a few months at least -- I have GOTD recovery programmes "coming out of my ears" by now.

Unless of course GOTD are offering a "forensic-level" programme -- which can get back large parts of my THREE, purposely over-written, hard disks.... Then *I* would no doubt be writing something that sounds like a shill....

Does this software work on XP?

Reply   |   Comment by Leon Magill  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-4)

Leon Magill,
my question too.........
How many have older drives they need to RECOVER
especially Vista, 7,8,8.1,10 etc..........
Millions still have the XP that works long since the mentioned JUNK above.

Of course with the JUNK from MS in the last 7-10 years I suppose there are MILLIONS of FAILURES..........software that is.........hee-hee

Leon Magill, if you have an XP machine why don't you try it yourself? If you don't have an XP machine, are you just curious about the fact Windows 2000 is mentioned but XP is not in the system requirements?

The provided setup.exe file has one detection on virustotal that is purely heuristic in nature and likely from scareware product (eGambit)

There is no setup.exe/gcd in use today, the setup.exe provided by the vendor is unsigned and is the same as the trial installer offered on the vendors site.

When activating the software using the key provided in the enclosed readme.txt it requires an internet connection to a server whose host name is http://doyourdatasn.com/ which leads me to believe there is some sort of business relationship with an old regular giveaway vender Do Your Data which has given away recovery products here in the past.

https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/category/publisher/doyourdata/

The vendor does make some pretty much unsupportable marketing claims:

"The Best Hard Drive Data Recovery Software | Magoshare"

It does not offer the ability to create an image file of the failed drive to work from rather than the failed and possibly worsening drive like the best recovery programs do.

and

"100% Efficient Data Recovery Software

Magoshare Data Recovery Software offers 100% safe & efficient data recovery solution to completely recover lost data from hard drive or storage media"

Not true because it only works from the failed/failing drive and therefore is adding to the wear on the mechanisims and media. Also 100% efficiency implies that everything recoverable even file fragments will be recovered... that would be forensic level recovery which this does not offer.

There is no quick scan option and it first enumarates all the files on a given drive including those simply deleted and then procedes to scan the entire drive and looks like it is going to take some time now on this 1.2 TByte partition estimated 3 hours 10mins remaining... Although one can navigate the results presented so far and preview certain file types while the scan continues in the background.

TK, So is it good or not for you? Is it worth downloading it?

Reply   |   Comment by Mario  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Mario, give me a couple more hours for the first scan to complete... Since I have several other data recovery programs including some that do support creating and working from image files rather than the failing drive it is surplus to my needs but I cannot say if it is worth YOU downloading or not, that is for you to decide.

And for my personal needs I don't tend to rely on data recovery but prefer keeping important data in multiple locations so if one location fails it always exists somewhere else, i.e. multiple backups.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+31)

TK, Many thanks for your reply! I have lots of recovery tools as well, but just a few of them actually work properly. For instance many of them fail to recover files from RAW DRIVES. Do you know if this tool can do that?

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

Mario, not having a so called RAW drive to test it on I cannot say for sure plus a drive can apear as "RAW" for a variety of reasons and not all are recoverable so there is no universal answer to whether a particular RAW drive can have files recovered from it.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

TK, Yeah, they claim, "100% safe & efficient data recovery solution to completely recover lost data..."

-- I think the "100%" there just refers to "safe" rather than 100% RECOVERY of lost data. Unfortunately, I have never seen any of the many recovery programmes we have seen here, just this YEAR, which claims it can recover any part of data that has been OVER-WRITTEN, as no less than three of my hard disks suffered. (Deliberately of course -- but not by me....) which I would LIKE to see if I can get any/much back...

The hard disks were deliberately over-written with boot media, and the few recovery programmes I have tried on them (till I realised I need to make an IMAGE first!) only succeeded in getting snippets back -- enough to prove they were my hard disks....

No, when someone is cussed enough to actually OVER-WRITE (rather than simply "delete") your files, there really ain't much you can do about it.... Except maybe get a divorce.

Still, I will add this programme to my armoury -- in the HOPE that it can get back a bit more than some others may do.... But it is going to be a long, tedious process.

Why didn't I back up? I mentioned there were THREE hard disks, didn't I...???

TK, 6 hours later the same scan is STILL going! It claims it only has 1 hour 37 mins left but the seconds remaining are counting down 1 second every 5 real world seconds so I think the calculations are significantly flawed and I've wasted enough time on this already.

Could it recover from a USB drive that still holds the files but has a bad index? Windows says it's unformatted.

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

Therese S.,
IMHO probably not -- *In my experience* that error message has usually meant that the USB stick was dead, because the electronics that let a PC see the stored files died. In that case, since the PC can't find any data storage, there's nothing for recovery software to work with or on.

There are things you can try - the 1st is plugging it into different PCs/laptops, & if that works, you'd probably want to copy the data off the stick then & there to be safe. If it continues to work on another PC/laptop, you can try the free USBOblivion, which removes USB device entries from the registry -- those can be bad & prevent a USB device from working.

There are some specialized apps from companies that make USB sticks, but I've never had any luck with them personally, & there at least used to be a few other things to try, but a Google search today is dominated by data recovery products.

That said, while I haven't yet had a chance to check out Magoshare Data Recovery, if TK's correct, that this GOTD is similar [or the same] as DoYourDataRecoveryPro, it probably wouldn't hurt to give it a try in case... I don't say that because the DoYourData app is the best available, but because installing that app has Very little impact on Windows, so not much to lose by trying it.

Flan, Yes, it can.

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

Flan, it is dependant upon which file system type is used and if it was just deleted fragmented files or re-formated partition and just the data area remains... there is not a single yes or no answer... in some circumstances it could, in other circumstances it will only recover the JPEG header until the first point of fragmentation. Which may be enough data to be usable or it may just be a small fraction of an image file.

"33 data recovery" softwares since January in Giveaway of the day.I'm on now not to lose a single file.....

But I continue to use RECUVA which is free and does very well the job.

A plus for the editors of this type of software, would be to provide the possibility of being able to create a bootable disk in case of crash of the system disk for example.

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

detenova,
"I continue to use RECUVA which is free and does very well the job."

Yes it does. I more-or-less stockpile recovery apps that are given away -- at least the portable or almost portable ones -- in case a file absolutely HAS to be recovered, & Recuva doesn't do it. Part of that's psychology on my part -- if I'm not successful I'll feel a lot better having tried 1/2 dozen or so. BTW, downloading Piriform software [Recuva] getting the zip file rather than the installer *might* be safer, since their CCleaner installer was previously infected.

"A plus... would be to provide the possibility of being able to create a bootable disk..."

My personal opinion, FWIW, is that you're much better off with portable or nearly portable versions that can be easily run once you boot to something else, e.g. WinPE, something like MistyPE, a Windows To Go drive etc. That way you're [hopefully] using something that you've tested & know boots your device(s). By far most of the bootable USB sticks I've created is various apps, including Windows 10's recovery, either don't work on everything, or don't work, period, so if you think someday you might have to rely on one, test it now to be safe.

Could it recover even from bad HD that are not shown "Computer" list?
From crashed hard disks that OS can't see them.

Reply   |   Comment by dudi  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

dudi, that depends if the drive is shown device manager and disk managment list. If it is not even shown there then that means the controller circuitry of the drive is faulty and, without replacing the controller board with an identical model and revision controller board from a working donor drive or new, no recovery software can access the data.

If the drive does show up in device manager and disk managment interfaces but not as a discrete drive letter in "Computer" list then there is a chance that software based rocovery could recover some data if the heads and platters and motors are still working at design spec.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+27)

dudi,
TK has a point: if the disk can been seen in disk managment, then there is a change.
BUT, Windows acts sometimes different with disk then Linux does.
And there is a site with the best system rescue discs and all of them are based on Linux:
https://lifehacker.com/5984707/5984707/five-best-system-rescue-discs
This link is about a drive, not recognized by Windows and good for Linux.
So after trying recover-software made for Windows, give a Linux boot CD with a recovery a change. Most of them are free of charge.
