If you still want this program, you can wait until it is promoted again (it is given out often) or read comment #9 by hal9000 and comment#18 by 3K3 explaining a trick on how to register this software even after the promo has expired.

I reviewed iCare Data Recovery Professional earlier this year. It got an Ordinary rating. This was my verdict:
I am not impressed with iCare Data Recovery Software at all. While the “Deep Scan Recovery” mode does perform well, the other modes don’t; and there are so many annoying aspects to iCare Data Recovery Software such as not being able to preview all major file types and having to view already existing files in the scan results instead of just lost/deleted ones. Plus the lack of bootable media is a huge con; potentially a deal-breaker considering how much this program costs. Do yourself a favor and save your $69.95; grab a different file/partition recovery software instead. Testdisk & PhotoRec, although not perfect especially in regards to ease-of-use, are the best file/partition software I have ever used.
iCare Data Recovery Professional is being offered by the developer for free on “Cyber Tuesday” for 24-hours only. I was a bit busy yesterday so I wasn’t able to post about it but it looks like this freebie is still available — I just activated it myself, to test it out. So grab this while you still can, if you want it. (There is no information on if you can install/reinstall it at a later date.)
