Is this a Softpedai giveawy? The developer contacted me yesterday about this promotion asking me to post about it (they didn’t mention anything about Softpedia).

That said, I asked the developer to fix this “fake awards” before I would post about the software. They said they are working on it.

@ Ashraf: Yeah, seems so. On the Softpedia web page,where they have published the serial number, it says: “The license works only on the special edition available for download on Softpedia.”

I’m wondering what the “special edition” features – or, more to the point, doesn’t feature. Is it just a stripped down version of the full program?

It’s also being offered here:

 http://www.askvg.com/free-down…..rth-69-95/

I’ve never used the program… the combination of the Easeus Partition and Easeus ToDo backup programs work so well on my box that I just copy partitions or store images on an external drive. I think I’ll download it, though, in case I need to help somebody else. I learned about the AskVG site from someone here, but I can’t remember her name.

 

PS to phoenix_rising. That is the grooviest yin-yang I’ve ever seen.

Full version then, it seems. Might be worth a download – if it can do what it claims to do. Thanks Ashraf!

@ benhenry: It’s pretty trippy, isn’t it! Kudos to whomever designed it.

Very timely. A friend of mine has just “lost” all her precious photos by pressing the wrong key Confused during a copy process.

So, being the good guy hero type, I offered to try and get them back for her – only to be told she had re-formatted the disk and started taking pics again.Surprised

Woe and misery.! Immediately instructed a halt on new pics until we could finish the recovery exercise.

Oh, folley, folley. Embarassed (Credits to Stanley Unwin).

First attempt using Wondershare Photo Recovery went well, until I tried saving those discovered – my Registration key no longer worked. Frown

2nd. attempt using iCare Data Recovery met a similar fate.! Something strange here with lost keys, will have to investigate and hope it is not systemic and affecting other installed programs.

3rd. try – persistent chap aren’t I – using RECUVA. SUCCESS Smile HOORAY.

To tell the truth, I just could not face the embarrassment of failure after making such a bold offer and building up her hopes.

Still, a few pics were irretievably lost – they had been overwritten with new ones (any idea how these might be found?) – but at least my image is still pristine.

Will now get this latest freebie and put it in my arsenal of tools one hopes never to have the need for – just like insurance – but there in case of emergencies like the one above described.

Also, will test iCare Format Recovery on the same memory card to compare results.

P.S – Thanks to Aang for the heads up. Smile LOL

Have done initial testing of iCare Format Recovery

(iFC) on the same memory card, as mentioned above, and am pleased to advise results compare very well. Smile

Restoration using Recuva returned exactly same file sizes as original, iFC copies were slightly larger. Whether this is of concern I cannot say as the test files were only a few k to begin with.

It should be noted however, that a similar increase in file sizes was indicated by Wondershare Photo Recovery, so there does not seem to be anything untoward here.

Will post again any updates to the above. Cool

Thanks Karen, that worked beautifully Smile

But it also bring up another issue, if I AM the administrator, why do I have to do that? Do I need to change some setting. Running Vista 64 has too many challenges. Confused

After looking at the instructions on the second url that Ashraf gave, I noticed that it said run as administrator, so that explains your reply.

But I am still wondering why is that necessary for some programs?

@ AlanR: Yes, your review of it did encourage me to install it. So thank you. Let’s hope I never have to use it.

I DL’d it too based on your review. Wink Maybe I can be a savior for someone ELSE though.

I have one question. I notice there are not menus. Does that come up after you run the recovery phase and give you options to perform?

I guess I could go read up on it but talking to you is always more fun.LaughLaugh

All right, I give up. I think I’m finally convinced that I should go ahead and download it. Just in case I ever need it.

Think I’ll just save the download on my external hard drive tho and not install it unless I end up needing it. (does that make sense or would I somehow be shooting myself in the foot if I did that)

@ Wheezer

“Think I’ll just save the download on my external hard drive tho and not install it unless I end up needing it. (does that make sense or would I somehow be shooting myself in the foot if I did that)”

 

You make a good point, what I noticed is that it gives you the choice of what to recover, hds, usb etc, BUT what if it is the external that needs recovery.

Which leads me to this question, is it possible to put it on external and internal??? Confused

I don’t know if this works as portable software or not.

@Wheezer – one problem with not installing recovery softer until you need it, is that depending on the drive you need to recover files on, the act if installing it could overwrite the very files you want to recover.

Good points, both need to be considered.

I’ve been bragging about this new computer with all the memory, guess it’s time to use some of it and install the program, even if I hopefully never use it.
