    Ashraf,

    Firstly, thanks for your efforts in supplying these programs.

    As registration email had not arrived by the 19th, I emailed Tech Support. Very shortly after that the email arrived, followed by an email asking if it had. What a pleasant surprise. Especially compared to the vast majority of ecommerce.

    Nope. The new disk digger version is not usable in the free version. So turned to payware in my opinion. You have to click away a stupid nag screen on every file you recover – unusable if you want to recover a full hard drive with billions of files. Fortunately the old nag-free version is still available for download.

    I don´t think such “unlicensable algorithms” exist.
    Have a look at photorec. This free program recovers a lot of files using algorithms.

    With simply deleted files i had good results with the old freeware restoration. Needs admin rights under Win7 (right click – run as admin) or crahses trying to recover files. Maybe i also try diskdigger next time.

    @Giovanni: Disk Digger? I never heard of it. Paid programs usually dig deeper have more options for data recovery. Perhaps freeware solutions are limited in programming due to proprietary unlicensable undelete algorithms perhaps?

    Be careful with O&O. Giving them your email address puts you on a spam email list of theirs, and they won’t take you off. I’ve tried 6 times using their unsubscribe web page, and 4 emails directed to sales, support, info, etc with no luck so far. Very NOT impressed!!

    @Cyberski: Check your spam box in your email – might be the problem, because these arrived pretty quickly.
     
    O&O used to be a bigger player in the shareware market than they seem to be now, at least afaict. Like Ashampoo, they will send you email offers for discounts on their other software, once you register. (unsubscribing is simple enough, though). I have no real complaints with their software, there are just others that I personally prefer. Still, free is free and I grabbed a copy of this to file away for someone I know who is not tech savvy.
