If you did not backup the iphone data with itunes or icloud, you can try recovery software, which may help you retrieve the deleted data, you can get them back in few steps. There are two popular and useful ways to make it. One way is that you can recover the data from iPhone directly. The other way is that you can recover data from iTunes backup, only if you have made the backup.

This article contains lot of information that can help user to recover deleted data. Can your software sort the recovered files on the basis of name, date, size and file type?? I have heard about Remo Recover tool and it has the feature to sort the recovered data.

I am amazed at the number of outrageous comments from people who obviously know nothing of data recovery. Data recovery is never ever performed from the same disk partition that the data resides on. Setting pagefile size etc. does not affect this one bit. If you lost a file, turn off your computer and boot to an external device such as a CD, DVD, USB flash drive, or external hard drive and scan your data drive from there. Another option is to remove the hard drive and place it in a docking caddy or in another computer to scan.

If you suspect the disk drive may be failing, clone the disk partition BEFORE attempting any data recovery. Data recovery will work the disk drive harder than it has every worked before and may finish off an already sick disk drive.

Oddly, the program only appears to be able to find deleted files on FAT volumes, not NTFS. For many cases, that's fine, but the description does bill it as capable of NTFS.

I'll be contacting their support later as it may be an edge case of some kind. But it's something I felt should be noted in the comments.

I hate responding on such a tangent, but I feel that papin's statement needs correction since it's so egregiously wrong and people may believe it if there is no education to the contrary. :(

I have no clue what papin is thinking when stating that You cannot run another Windows on a workstation if there’s already a Windows installed on that workstation. By workstation, read any device, from PC to virtual machines.

I would like to quote from the Windows 8 license at this juncture:


1. License Rights and Multi User Scenarios
a. Computer. In this agreement, “computer” means a hardware system (whether physical or virtual) with an internal storage device capable of running the software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a computer. The software is licensed to run on only one processor on the licensed computer.
e. Use in a virtualized environment. If you use virtualization software to create one or more virtual computers on a single computer hardware system, each virtual computer, and the physical computer, is considered a separate computer for purposes of this agreement. This license allows you to install only one copy of the software for use on one computer, whether that computer is physical or virtual. If you want to use the software on more than one virtual computer, you must obtain separate copies of the software and a separate license for each copy. Content protected by digital rights management technology or other full-volume disk drive encryption technology may be less secure in a virtualized environment.


Wow. That's a lot of text. What does it mean? Well, first and most relevantly, it means that they explicitly allow multiple copies of Windows on one physical computer. Note that they also explicitly allow multiple copies of Windows in a single virtual machine, as well. What they do prohibit is using the same Windows license on multiple computers (physical or virtual) or running Windows across multiple physical processors (unlikely to affect 99% of consumers). But that's not at all what papin claimed.

Additionally, if papin's statement was correct, then Microsoft would be helping millions of users violate the license constantly with sites like modern.ie and TechNet Evaluation Center.

Further, it's perfectly allowable to install Windows Server on a workstation or (as with Windows client) in a virtual machine. As the Windows Server Pricing and Licensing overview states, the "Standard" version of Server allows you to virtualize that same licensed copy two more times within itself and the "Essentials" version once. (The Datacenter version has no virtualization limits.) So even that line of thinking (server OS on a workstation) still doesn't make papin's statement true.

Bottom line: There are no prohibitions against running multiple (properly licensed) copies of Windows on one machine, virtual or otherwise.

Now to get back on the topic: I'm going to be downloading today's giveaway quite happily, as it will be great on a shared computer I have set up at home. It helps with the way-too-common case of "Oh darn! I think I deleted your file with Shift-Delete when getting rid of my old files from the Documents directory!" It's not disaster recovery. It's not "some time later when the machine's been used a bit". It's also not required to be guaranteed. It's a convenience saving having to restore a file from backup, possibly losing a few changes in that process.

Basically, I want to use it precisely for the purpose stated in the Giveaway's description. What an odd concept.

I copied 300 images and various other types of files on to a spare USB hard drive which had been formatted then deleted all the files and emptied the trash can. Now comes the fun part ... I used this offering to see what it wouldn't do. Very poor results. Only 73 out of 300 files were recovered and very little or no information given on the unrecovered files. Verdict ... Not much use and very poorly written piece of software ... TRASHCAN!

#27:
Windows live CD/DVD are uncommon because most Windows users will never create one or download an image to burn.

The Microsoft EULA regarding Windows is extremely clear: You cannot run another Windows on a workstation if there's already a Windows installed on that workstation. By workstation, read any device, from PC to virtual machines.

WinPE and WAIK respect the EULA in that they are not Windows OSes per se but tools to repair or install (deploy) Windows either as the main OS or as a VHD (virtual machine). You can buy a WinPE license but no home user would ever do that. In fact, WinPE and WAIK are not targeted to home users.

If you use something like BartPE to create a live Windows DVD, you might consider buying a license just for the disk. However, due to the restriction mentioned earlier, the disk will not be authorized for repairing a Windows installation. This is why such disks are illegal.

Ashraf IS right and deserves some apologies.

When you run Windows, more data is written to disk which CAN OVERWRITE data left over from deleted files/folders. When any part of that data is overwritten, it IS gone for good.

If Reincubate Recover Files Home 0.2.5.0 CANNOT be installed on a USB stick, CD ROM or other external media, then it is DANGEROUS in the event that a critical file needs to be recovered. If this was a portable program, then it could be used with some generic recovery boot disks which do not write directly to the computer's partition(s). But, Reincubate is not portable.

As Ashraf wrote, "why anyone would bother with (Reincubate) when you can get freeware data recovery programs that do offer the feature (portability and / or directly bootable recovery)."

File recovery using a Windows-based program like Reincubate has usually has nothing to do with "catastrophic disc failures" as Matt incorrectly wrote in post #3.

If someone actually did delete their only copy of "wedding photos," then that is one time one would never mess with a program like this. The sad thing is -- even today -- some people still don't back up their unreplaceable photos in several locations.

I know someone who mailed their hard disk to a recovery service and spent hundreds of dollars having their photos recovered. Yes, unfortunately it does happen. If this family had continued to run Windows from that disk, they may have made their situation worse. Fortunately, they immediately stopped using their computer and went to a "data recovery specialist" -- they didn't even trust me with this task.

It's true that for many accidental deletions involving files that are easily replaceable from other sources, Reincubate would be fine. But, why bother with this when you can pick one of the free programs mentioned in Ashraf's link (IN POST #1, above), which will work IN EVERY CASE.

@9 Alex "Note that the giveaway limitation is one key per one email only."

It's a pity, that this is mentioned AFTERWARDS. "Note that the giveaway limitation is one key per one email only."
I have requested a licence on a mail-address and afterwards i decide to install the software on a different machine.
Therefore i requested a change of ID.
At that time i have noticed, that it is not permitted.

That information was not told before.
Not at GOTD, this page. Not when a license was requested.
Also not, when i installed the software on a other machine.

@Joel #6, I agree with @Matt #3, Since the software on GOTD website is free for one day only, people need to install it on their PCs in order to have it. So, to use this, or any other recovery software here on GOTD, it will already be on your PC, and there won't be a risk of overwriting what you deleted.

#3: "Ashraf, come on. I love ya, and I understand your obsession with being able to create bootable/recovery CD/DVD/USB. But that’s NOT necessary when all that happened was someone accidentally deleted their wedding photos or their favorite Jethro Tull playlist and then emptied the trash. That seems to be what this program is for, not catastrophic disc failures."

Basically when you delete a file the data remains in place -- the file system simply removes that data from its index so now that disk space is free to use. File recovery apps look for that data & try to reassemble its index listings. When you run Windows & software more data is written to disk -- that data can be written to a blank area of the disk/partition that's never been used, or it can overwrite any data left over from deleted files/folders. If/when data is overwritten it's gone for good. File erasing apps just overwrite leftover data making it unrecoverable. The main difference between erasing a file & just deleting it is that erasing apps don't leave anything to chance over time, as all data from all deleted files will be overwritten eventually.

Now if the files you want to recover were stored on a USB stick or anywhere besides the disk partition where Windows resides, you should be able to run Windows & a recovery app just fine, since running Windows reads & writes data just to the system partition [unless you tell it otherwise]. If however the file(s) you want to get back are on that system partition, every second Windows is running *Decreases* the odds that you'll be able to recover that file or files. In that case it wouldn't be extreme to cut the power to your PC immediately when you discover you need to recover a file -- you can check the disk for errors later, once you've got whatever files back.

And if you can't run Windows for fear of overwriting the files you want to recover, you've got to run an OS & recovery software that's been stored & runs somewhere other than that system partition. That gives you just 2 options -- boot from a CD/DVD/USB stick that won't write to the system partition, or plug the drive into another PC/laptop. Booting from removable media is certainly easier.

#10: "In my view controlling the Pagefile system to a set size and using PageDefrag can help in file recovery... If the Pagefile has a variable size then fragmentation of the drive is much greater hence the chance of overwriting a deleted file is increased..."

First off many [I would hope most] people store their data -- the stuff they create &/or save rather than software files -- in multiple places away from the system partition, which would make the system partition's fragmentation etc. irrelevant. 2nd, defrag apps cluster data at the front or start of the partition, increasing data density. Throw a snowball at a person standing all alone & you might miss -- throw a snowball at a tightly packed crowd and you're almost guaranteed to hit somebody. Logically it works the same way when it comes to overwriting data that you hope to recover -- if that data's some random place towards the sparsely populated end of the partition the odds are greater that you'll miss it with new data written to disk -- if that data's occupying much rarer free space at the front of the partition where stuff is written much more often, overwriting that data becomes more likely.

RE: the Pagefile, Page Defrag etc...

If you do a lot of repetitive stuff, caching often needed files & such can make things work faster -- that's the reason for SSD caching on the motherboard or with a hybrid hard drive, & the basis for defrag apps clustering most often used files on the fastest portion of the partition. Window's Pagefile is there to store stuff that won't fit into the system's memory -- with enough RAM you can do without it entirely, to your benefit BTW since reading data from RAM is faster. Since it does store data used by running apps & Windows, it functions a bit like the caching I just mentioned, and to that extent having less Pagefile fragmentation can make things run & work faster. It's far from guaranteed that anyone will notice a difference however, & you might do just as well having Windows delete that Pagefile on shutdown, as the new one created when Windows starts will presumably have little or no fragmentation to start with, the process can be automatic, and by deleting that Pagefile you're deleting recorded history, passwords used etc., possibly increasing your security.

As far as having the Pagefile a set, predetermined size goes, it's an option in Windows that used to be talked about a lot whenever, wherever you had a collection of Windows Tips & Tricks. I've no reason to believe most people pay attention to it nowadays -- most people I think let it go at whatever value Windows sets managing Pagefile size automatically. When you set it manually you don't have to worry about not having the needed disk space for it to increase in size, nor worry about it becoming fragmented when it dynamically expands. OTOH you might set it too small at your own peril, or set it too large wasting disk space, & might well be pretty hard pressed to measure any increase in performance, let alone one that you'd notice.

#15: "Any .NET framework tightly ties a software to a very specific GUI API that must be available on “C:”. Thus, this product will never find a place onto a boot CD — unless it’s a rather uncommon and illegal Windows live DVD (a CD won’t do it)."

You're right about .NET & portability, but that's no reason not to include the app on bootable removable media with a underlying WinPE framework. Likewise I see no reason [if the developer allowed it under the licensing terms] it couldn't be incorporated into or with a generic WinPE image you built using the tools at reboot.pro -- AFAIK there's nothing uncommon or illegal about that sort of thing. I'd imagine it could also be setup with Windows To Go, again depending on the app's license terms.

To install software:
1. Unzip components to a common folder.
2. Run Setup.
3. Fill in name and email and click "Email" button.
4. Leave installation dialog box open and go to your email.
5. (Check spam folder for email from Reincubate)
6. Copy registration code.
7. Go back to installation dialog box and click Install.
8. Program continues its installation to your "App Data" folder.

Open the program from within the App Data folder and click Activate at the top of the screen.

OK to this point. I tried running program 3 times and it fails to run; i.e. becomes unresponsive.

However, I have a question about this...... since the program didn't install to the Programs folder, but rather to App Data, does this mean you should be able to copy everything to a usb and run as Ashraf mentioned in #1 comment, provided that the program even runs on one's computer?

#18 papin
Sorry my comment was somewhat lacking in clarity, obviously a defrag would be ludicrous before trying to recover deleted file, hence I will explain further.
My point is that if the Pagefile is a set size and it is in one single file, and this is your systems normal condition.
If later an attempt is made to recover a file your effort will not be hampered by the Pagefile writing over that part of the disc, that is to say, it will stay within the bounds of the Pagefile.

#10 (xp man): "using PageDefrag can help in file recovery"
I hope you don't defrag anything on the partition you want to recover from.

Running any recovery tool under Windows is absolutely NOT recommended to recover from C: because Windows always writes something on its own partition.

As for the pagefile.sys and possibly all temporary files, you could use a dedicated partition to store them. That's what I do.

Also, you might want to experiment using a swap partition (type 82) for temporary/cache files. On my first laptop (HDD was 4 GB only + dual boot Windows 95 and Linux Red Hat), I tried this once. It worked very well.

Installed and the software is unable to run.
It simply does not respond.
Cannot even get to the screen where user activates it.
It does not install into C:Program Files\

During installation, it automatically installs (without asking user or letting user choose) into this sub-directory:
"C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Reincubate\Reincubate Recover Files\"

I do not like this.

Since it did not respond and failed to even run the initial screen where user enters activation code, uninstalled it immediately.

I've never heard of this one but there's one file recovery and "undeleter" that I've ever found to be worth its salt, and I've tried dozens of them. All boast and make their claims but the one I like best is "Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier".

It works on hard drives, floppies, flash drives, and all manner of flash cards (SD, MMC, CF, etc.). I've even had good success rates with it on scratched up optical disks (CDs and DVDs).

And it's 100% FREE. I've been using it for many years and I still do.

That's just my 2 cents worth.

This product must be changed to be conform to its description. Five generic filters are availables and attractives. The sorting of columns is a nice option. For cons, the choice offered for restoring ghost files, in directories, also ghosts, is not very reassuring. Warning, the name of recoverable files is not always the original. In short, a product in beta, because not yet finalized.

In my view controlling the Pagefile system to a set size and using PageDefrag can help in file recovery.
PageDefrag link:-
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/bb897426
If the Pagefile has a variable size then fragmentation of the drive is much greater hence the chance of overwriting a deleted file is increased.
In my previous comment I forgot to mention that today's download was tested against three other paid for and more expensive recovery programs, they found many more files.

Hi Jimsock (@#8 comment)! I'm Alex from Reincubate. Sorry to hear that you have had problems in running and installing the software. Our software installer has been wrapped with the GOTD one, but still it should be very easy to run and register the app. You need to download,extract the zip file (all files in the same location), run the Setup and follow the steps: type in your Name and Email to be emailed a giveaway registration key. Note that the giveaway limitation is one key per one email only. Then, Install the software as you normally would.

Our experts support team is ready to help. So, why not contact us and we will help you get up and running in no time. Cheers.

Downloaded. Read the read.me, which says:
Installation

Unzip the package you`ve downloaded and start software installation by running Setup.exe.

During the installation you will need to fill in the form and sumbit your data (name and email), then press "email" button.

Registration information will be sent to you by email. Press "Install" to copmlete the installation.

"Use the key to complete the activation procedure: start the program, click "Activate" at the top of the panel, enter your name and activation key from your email (copy it to clipboard by Ctrl+C).

After this the key will appear in the form and the activation button will become highlighted, press it to finish the activation."

WTH? Anyway, I proceeded to attemp the install and then the Setup.exe file will not run.

I wanted to try this program, just for kicks, but they could have made it simple for us to try.

I want to emphasize what Ashraf says in post #1:

Even the most effective file recover utility does not make any good if it cannot be launched at boot without starting Windows.

That has nothing to do with the utility but to the way Windows works.

In fact, even to most trivial action you do, Windows keep rewriting on any "empty" space making the content of what theoretically can be recovered absolutely unuseful!

Remeber: using Windows, any kind of files/data recovery has to be performed outside of the opering system and to maximize your chances for a succesfull recovery of your data/files you need to stop immediately what you are doing and recour to a bootable/recovery CD/DVD/USB - as Ashraf said.

@Matt (currently #3)- when (like most people) you don't have this program installed before you accidentally delete your wedding photos or Jethro Tull playlist, installing it may accidentally overwrite the deleted files and make it impossible to ever recover them using any software, not only this. The first step after an accidental deletion is not writing anything to that partition. That's why software without bootable media is of limited use.

An extremely basic recovery program as reflected in its price.
My drive has three partitions and it offered me a choice of which to scan, it also offered me a choice of file type. These are very basic such as pictures, documents, e-mails etc.
The initial scan was extremely rapid it only found eight files on my two gig drive which is my programming drive.
In settings I set up for deeper scan and for type selected pictures and it found a considerable number of GIF files and a few PNG files but no .JPG files or BMP files that have been deleted.
On checking documents on the same drive it did not find any of the PAS files that I would have expected.
Of the files it does find no preview is shown instead just a minimal amount of information.
As it missed so many of the deleted files I know existed on this drive it is obvious that a considerable amount of development work is required before it even compares with freeware recovery options.

If you really want to recover your files, try get data recovermyfiles. I've used many data recovery softwares in the past and it's the best software available in the market. Remo recover is another choice..

Ashraf, come on. I love ya, and I understand your obsession with being able to create bootable/recovery CD/DVD/USB. But that's NOT necessary when all that happened was someone accidentally deleted their wedding photos or their favorite Jethro Tull playlist and then emptied the trash. That seems to be what this program is for, not catastrophic disc failures.

Hi friends,

I didn't get a chance to review this program but I did take a look at the developer's website, and I see no mention of the program being able to create bootable/recovery CD/DVD/USB. For data recovery programs, it is essential to be able to create bootable/recovery media and this program appears to not support it... which makes me wonder why anyone would bother with it when you can get freeware data recovery programs that do offer the feature. If you are interested, learn more at our review of best free data recovery software for Windows.
