Hi, every MiniTool software users,

About today's bug we felt so sorry, the reason why it could not work on Window XP 32 bit is below:

1.) Today´s version uses QT5 runtimes! and
2.) The file “vccorlib120.dll” will obviously not run on 32 bit XP /2003 server
(here we find a tech guy among you, @wosa).

We are very sorry about this bug, and it is due to our tester’s negligence. Because Microsoft has stopped relative upgrades for Windows XP, our testers just concentrated on Window Vista, Windows 7 and operating systems after that, and ignored Windows XP 32 bit. In fact, this product is not that can’t be used on 32 bit operating systems, but that it only can’t be used on Windows XP 32 bit. For other 32 bit operating systems, such as Window Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, this product works well. Anyway, it is our mistake, and we feel very sorry about this. For Windows XP 32 bit users, we will provide a revised version of the product immediately. Moreover, we will publish an Apology Letter on the event page. Windows XP 32 bit users who can’t use this product in this giveaway event can contact us through our official email (michael@minitool.com), and we will provide the latest revised product.

Re blind computer user: I interpret comment #8 differenty. I do not think the maker thinks we should all abandon 32 bit systems and switch over to 64 bitters. Why do I think that? Because the System Requirements are "Windows 98/ Me/ NT/ 2000/ XP/ 2003; 486 or Pentium-class processor" and I do think most Windows 98 computers are NOT 64 bitters.

Perhaps we should not expect the software to run on Windows 7 and 8.

Or did someone made a mistake when writing the System Requirements??

I tested it on my home use win7 64 bit and it recovered all my lost files from the damaged partition. really cool tool. thank you. I read comments above, too and I just wanna say that MiniTool is very generous cause each of the code we got here is worth 69$ and now we got it for free. It did help. Just don't be so critical.

Hi Folks,

Along with others, I too have received the error stating that the program is not a valid Win32 application. The supported OS's listed here cover everything from Windows 98 onward. It's shame because I really was interested in this particular program as I have a hard drive with a damaged partition which I was hoping to recover.

Anyway, I wish the best for this Canadian company, but am disappointed that the program would not run properly.

Bob

@MiniTools
thank you for this software...
But I want to inform you, that TODAY´s version seems NOT to run on Windows XP based and 2003 server based machines any longer:

While you, MiniTools, named this version still version 6.8, it is internal NOT the same version as version 6.8 some month ago!
1.) Today´s version uses QT5 runtimes! and
2.) The file "vccorlib120.dll" will obviously not run on 32 bit XP /2003 server; so try to get the older version for XP and older Windows PE systems!

I've downloaded but not installed this app.
100mb space for a tool I may never need. No indication it can be installed when needed?
A permanent installation of "may need" is a deal breaker!
Thanks anyway.

1) Installed and ran perfectly on Win-7 64 bit

2) Have a 500 gb 2.5" drive; BIOS sees, pgrm did not, so no help (nothing else I have does either...)

3) "woso" - #3 - please - more detail? When you say:
====================================
But what is REALLY great about tools from MiniTool: They run “from” a Windows Setup DVD:
- Press Shift-F10 after the 1st screen (language setting) has been set (or later…!)
- you get to an empty command window
- from here you can run a commander or this tool directly
( especially for Windows supports plugging in of USB storage devices!)

This means, you DON´T need any setup/recovery/special Windows PE DVD for working with their tools!
All Thums up for that!!!
==================================

Where is the program installed? on the HD or a thumb? How do you get it to run from a Windows Setup DVD???

Thx




Thumb?

ok first thing, since I read the comments first, the companies comments (#8) are a bit over the top, why run on 32 bit, a lot of folks can't or do not want to upgrade, and yes you can say since there not upgrading by choice then go take a long swim!, but as I said a lot of folks can't upgrade, being a blind computer user I would know this, and there is the little matter of "any decent company works with backward compatibility!" that means XP, vista, and win 7, along with 8, as well as both 32 and 64 bit systems!!!

I'll go test this thing now, and see if it works on a damaged drive I have, but I see why the ambiguous and probably going to drop rating, and I agree with the current trend to rate it mediocre

Re 32 bits problems. I always test the program on a virtual XP 32 machine. I had the same error message as the others. But the Cameyo portable I made on that virtual XP did run correctly.

On the underlying W8.1 64 laptop the Cameyo also runs, but it could not see the hard disks. Under SandboxIE it did see all partitions.

13: & #6: (Spitt) I, too, have been having problems with my external Seagate (and Samsung) and Toshiba drives with USB 3.0 interfaces, and a few of my more recent USB 3.0 flash keys. The problems started showing up with my Win 7 HP x64 suddenly not recognizing some external drives (flash or HDD). My new Win 8.1 laptop will report loading drivers, but the drives do not get mapped to Windows drives I can navigate. With some effort, I found a Windows disk management utility that’s usually reserved for formatting drives that ALSO has some limited ability to assign new drive letters to these “phantom” drives. Seems to work 70% of the time, but not for the weak of heart.
--------------------------------
Here's a way to change drive letters using Win 7 that works all the time,
Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management (Whew!)

Chose the drive to change the drive letter by right clicking on it and follow the easy directions.

you have to buy the boot disk for extra $69. Ok, that's a deal killer. They box in home users with Win7/8 but don't think a small few may run server? Whats up with that? I assume since server 2012 was left out, it doesn't support anything above 2008? Maybe I missed something.

I have two new 1 terabyte hard drives installed in my rig therefore I could not test it here. I do however have an 8 gig flash drive that about three months ago held over a hundred tunes. I deleted all the music and started using the drive for my photographs, I tested todays' GOTD on this To my absolute amazement it found all the tunes that I had erased but most of all it found them in less than ONE SECOND. Yes less than 1 second.

This software is not for normal users of PCs who would much rather use it a a black box from which they get Results, not Problems.

It is for recovery of data from a failed hard drive or other stated media. That means you are not recovering to be able to use your PC easily again.

You are just recovering raw data from a broken storage media, using another functioning computer. Presumably that data is so important that you have to do this.

If you have to do this, then it means you are in a fix.

Long story short, I'm not sure this is a Power Data Recover problem. It seems to be a growing serious gap caused by Microsoft's supposed "security" solutions for drivers that obsolete some critical hardware without recourse.

Does this tool or any alternatives reliably recover the windows data tree structure, with file and folder names? Recovering 200,000 files without structure or identification would not be very helpful to me.

Installed well, was unable to recognize my external USB Seagate HDD, which was found via SEATools.

Had it been able to find and fix the problems on my device, I would have gladly purchased a license rather then just evaluate it.

Because of my lack of success running on two XP machines I tested it on a 32 bit Windows 7 machine (yuk) and it worked.
Tried it on an SD card which contained some deleted video, it was a lightning fast and found the last one deleted which was viewable.
Decided to compare it with HDD Recovery Pro; much slower but it found many, many more files, about another 12 video files.
HDD Recovery Pro has been by far the most successful recovery tool I have used, but it needs to be at about $140.
Today's download is worth keeping for its speed alone, but if you really need to recover data HDD Recovery Pro is still the leader in my book.

Installed without problems, but that's as far as it went as when I tested on two different 32 bit systems I was informed that the program was not a Win32 bit program.
Wonder if it's 64-bit as Karl appeared to have no problems.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system. The program warns during install : "never install on a drive where are the damaged files". A good advice.

A Canadian company with address and a picture of the office building.
MiniTool Solution Ltd. is a software development company based in Canada. MiniTool Solution Ltd. is a software development company based in Canada. As a dedicated software development company, MiniTool Solution Ltd. provides customers with complete business software solutions in the data recovery and partition management industry.

Believe it or not. I have never needed an "undelete recovery data tool". Used for test purposes - yes. I am a fan of constant backup to external disks. But I have used several times a "partition recovery tool" to rebuilt partitions with errors. Happened with an USB drive some weeks ago.

Today's tool is not only an "undelete" program, but also an “Damaged Partition Recovery” & “Lost Partition Recovery” tool.

A resizable window opens, you have to buy the boot disk for extra $69. A pop up windows wants to sell...

On the main window you choose the undelete file or the damaged partition or the recover external media.

The different program parts show physical and logical drives. The scan is quite fast, the "recovered files" are shown in a tree view, you can preview the content (as ASCII). There are no options to choose, you can export the list or find specific files in a longer list.

This is done without problems, works as it claims. It cannot do the magic to recover files with deleted(! - not changed fileheader) or overwritten content.

What a pity, that I have my USB drive with the partition error repaired, so I cannot test this feature. It would have been interesting, because most of my tools failed. FYI - the way it worked was to clone a good drive over the damaged drive. After that I could format the drive again...

The software makes a good and reliable impression. I will keep it - for my next problematic drive.

By the way : Macrium reflect has a new version. The free version is sufficient for most users.
