The giveaway is already over 9:35 AM central standard time 7/28/11 and it has only been 15 hours since the post was made on Facebook. Too bad, looks like it might have been a good program.

Tried this on a set of pictures that got deleted last week. It did not even find one picture or even one deleted file at all.
So i tried Recuva which found and recovered most of the deleted files as well as others from up to a few years back.
I can only hope your experience with this giveaway is better than mine.
Thumbs way down.

This program claims to recover audio files - no luck for me, recovered (some) as unpalyable partials (Fat32 system). Anyone know of good audio file recovery ware, especially freeware?

This program is too good. For those of you who run regular cleaning programs such as CCleaner, Slim Cleaner, WinUtilties, etc, Be prepared to be haunted by your browsing past with this program. Even if you use the maximum security feature in CCleaner which is 35 passes for cleaning, this thing is going to bring back things you thought were gone.

Now you can bust your kids and or other significant other by using this program to scan and see what they have really been up to on the computer. Also, I ran this on my MP3 player because I had accidentally deleted a few songs on it, and it brought those back as well.

All in all, it can be good for the program as it describes it, but it adds a little more value then what its really used for, a detective tool :)

@#5(Brian) I've gone through their registration before and never had an increase in the amount of spam, so your assumption is incorrect. As for why download this program, it's a good program, installed and reg'd on my WinXP Pro 1GB RAM, 500 GB HDD fine. It's a useful program, it helps when you don't have to sort through massive amounts of irrelevant program files, text documents, etc. when restoring photo's, music and videos on old crashed hard drives. Thanks Wondershare and GOTD!!!

Wondershare generally makes better apps, but in testing with a 4 GB SDHC card, their Photo Recovery couldn't match the free Recuva... I started with a card that had screwed up the other day, loosing a dozen or so photos & showing up as unformatted in win7 64 -- I had done a quick format & left it in the USB card reader [figuring I'd test the suspect card later]. This morning I tried to get those photos back using Recuva, EASEUS Photo Recovery, & today's GOTD, Wondershare Photo Recovery -- none of them could find a single file. So I stuck the card back in the camera, took 4 shots, cut/pasted the jpg images to my PC's hard drive, then did it all over again, taking 5 shots this time. All 3 recovery apps found the last 5 files -- the 1st 4 were apparently gone forever -- but when I actually recovered them Wondershare Photo Recovery botched one image. To make sure that the SDHC card hadn't bit the dust, I went back to Recuva which managed to grab them all, & with a quick scan the Wondershare app doesn't offer in ~1/5 the time. [In all fairness not having a quick scan may not be a huge problem -- stopping a scan in Wondershare Photo Recovery once it found the files I was after did seem to work OK.]

When you use Wondershare Photo Recovery you're given a screen with just 2 options, Resume Recovery & Start. Click Start & the next screen lets you choose the drive/device to scan, & once you select one the Filter button becomes active -- click it to choose what files types you want to show up in scan results, &/or if you want to limit the search to a region of the drive, set in sectors. The next window shows progress as it scans the drive, showing files found as it finds them -- you can pause or stop the scan when you want, & optionally save the scan results so you can pick up from that point later on. Unlike Recuva the found files folder tree lists the file type rather than original file names -- clicking one of the found files showed a preview for jpg, but not mpg video in later testing. Once you select the files you want to recover, clicking the Recover button lets you choose where you want them.

Installation isn't bad, & Wondershare Photo Recovery is portable *Depending on how you define that term*... it will write to the registry, so *Strictly Speaking* Photo Recovery is not a fully portable app, but it doesn't need any registry entries to run, so if writing new registry entries isn't a problem for you, it's portable out of the box. The PhotoRecovery program folder holds 36 files, 3 folders, ~19 MB, though you might pare that down a bit if needed, deleting for example internet shortcuts & possibly some or all of the Microsoft files that are included more as a precaution -- per testing with Process Explorer most Windows installs I think will use the versions of those files already installed into the Windows folder. I recorded ~35 new registry entries, mostly uninstall related.

As others have already noted, there's no shortage of recovery apps, so Wondershare Photo Recovery isn't a *Must Have* by any means. That said, while based on this morning's tests I'd personally start out with Recuva, if you can store this Wondershare app someplace out of your way it's not going to hurt anything either.

Comparing Wondershare Photo Recovery with TestDisk is apples and oranges! Photo Recovery recovers MEDIA FILES, TestDisk recovers PARTITION/MBR data. Photo Recovery uses a GUI, Testdisk is text-based. Both are excellent products for different uses. That said, Thanks to GOTD and Wondershare for offering this product. I'm adding it to my toolbox, since you can never have too many recovery options =)

You state that WPR is better than some of the others,do you have evidence to support this? I'm skeptical that it's better than Testdisk especially,since that is a very powerful tool.

Installation was clean (actual version, but I can't see any reason to install or use this. It's as bad as Paragon about not seeing one of my RAID volumes and one of my external drives. No information is available via right-click. When you click on a drive and scroll through the list with the arrow keys, the first drive you clicked on will have its descriptive text cleared when you move off it.

Scanned a 621 GB volume, slow scan indicated deep scan. Found a bunch of non-existent stuff, no estimate of recoverability, audio and video as well as pictures. A small number of pictures were valid.

Ran Recuva, naturally sees all drives/volumes. Scanning the same volume with a deep scan (always recommended), I didn't time it but I'm sure it was much faster than Wondershare. When showing all types of files, most were listed as unrecoverable but also listed many as recoverable which I'm sure weren't. However, when filtering by pictures, most of them were marked as unrecoverable but all of those listed as recoverable were, and previews were available (much more convenient than Wondershare, Recuva primarily uses a right-click UI). Recuva found every recoverable picture that Wondershare did and several others.

@3 every software are different, even they do the same thing looks like. Wondershare Photo Recovery is better than TestDisk, EasyRecovery and others.

To date no-one has mentioned Pandora Recovery , also a free and excellent recovery tool with preview facility and recovering multiple file types. Of course, it is sometimes a good idea to have several alternatives available, but I always return to Pandora.

This doesn't appear to be any more effective than PhotoRec (and TestDisk), and PhotoRec lacks a price tag 365 days of the year rather than just one. No onerous registration nor activation to worry about, either.

Nice, it says "New Floder" when you choose recover.

That being said, as with every other file recovery program, this fails to recover .MOV files deleted from my SDHC card. They are found, but are corrupt when recovered (no files were saved to the disk after the videos were deleted).

If you're reluctant about providing them with your email address, simply go to GMail and set up a new email account for you to use in circumstances like these. By doing that, any "spam" that actually results from providing them with your email address will be confined to that account, and not your primary (personal) email account - which should NEVER be used when filling out forms .

Since I own a domain and I have it hosted through a paid web hosting service, I also have the ability to create an unlimited number of email addresses associated with that domain. Of course I've created the typical obligatory accounts such as "admin," "abuse," "sales," and "support," etc - but I also find myself regularly creating new email accounts for advertising purposes, subscriptions to various newsletters, and of course for my autoresponder (self-hosted, so I'm EXTRA careful to abide by the SPAM regulations). I have about a half-dozen "throwaway" email addresses that I use exclusively for traffic exchanges, safelist subscriptions, and other "high-volume" email functions.

Today's offering looks worthy of downloading and investigating, which I shall now do. I just wanted to let folks know about the email "trick" so that their fear of receiving "spam" doesn't keep them from taking advantage of what could otherwise be a really great deal.

My experience with the other products by Wondershare has been nothing less than wonderful, with their software routinely performing as advertised with an extremely responsive support staff (which is refreshing since most companies giving away their software through this site offer NO support whatsoever).

I'll be back in a bit...

This software could be much improved by including a portable version. Or at least the ability to create a bootable CD in case you need to recover from the root directory.

There are free ware versions of photo recovery software available for example

Digital Photo Recovery Software (from Geek Snerds)

Art Plus Digital Photo Recovery (from cnet)

Recuva (from piriform or filehippo)

Zar (from z-a-recovery.com)

Card Recovery (from card recovery.com)

PC Inspector (from snapfiles or cnet)

Picajet Photo Recovery (cnet)

I've had massive problems trying to add ideas to the Feedback panel above, is anyone else having problems leaving feedback? Every time I input the code it refuses it, but I'm definitely putting in the correct code.

I cannot understand why anybody would purchase this kind of product at this price when many other data recovery software offers the facility to recover all types of files in order to give you an all round option.

It seems to be getting all too common for vendors to split functions in order for them to be seeming to create a wide range of software, where they would be far better off combining similar functionality in more flexible, all encompassing solutions.

Recuva, MiniTool Power Data Recovery, Test Disk and PC Inspector File Recovery are examples of free data recovery options, as well as this kind of functionality also being built into more rounded options such as UBCD4WIN and Hirens.

This version also recovers movies and music, so it seems to be a cheaper version for people who use their PC as Entertainment-only-device. XD

Why this version when Wondershare already sells Data Recovery that can recover any type of file?
