data recovery tool Active File Recovery will recover data after formatting or loss of partitions and recover files that have been lost by formatting, damage, virus, or directory destruction. The program supports FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS disk volumes and can run from a floppy disk, to prevent that the installation overwrites any data. Active File Recovery is easy to use and offers an Explorer-like interface. It scans your drives and marks all deleted files in a different color and allows you to recover them. You can also use the program to create a disk image of any selected drive. Copyright

Trial Limitations: Trial cannot recover files larger than 64 KB.

Marvelous 5 stars by favx514 May 12, 2017
Managed to recover all my files from a resized and multiple times reformatted partition. Flawless design and extreme efficiency. It also successfully reconstructed the file system, folders, sub-folders and all. You cannot compare this with any freeware tool. Hands down amazing. Cheers. show Review details
Recovered files and folders from my bad drive 5 stars by Mike77 Jun 16, 2007 (Read all my 6 reviews)
My 80gb hard drive C suddenly crashed and windows would not boot- stuck black screen just before windows boots. I installed a new hard drive (I wanted to upgrade my main boot drive) and installed the bad one as a slave. Windows detected the drive but drive properties said 0 files, and explorer said invalid drive. I believe my partition had become damaged. I downloaded the demo and it found all the folders/files that were not damaged, displayed them in nice explorer like interface, and actually let me test download files under 64k. Worked perfect and very easy- just click on a folder or file to highlite it, then click Recover button, then select destination- very easy! The price by the way is only $29 at publisher site, not $49 at snapfiles. Best price for this quality! This company is serious about recovery tools, visit their web site. show Review details
Trial is worthless 1 stars by mark_psalms3737 May 01, 2006 (Read all my 2 reviews)
This program was difficult to figure out. Then when I finally did it would only let me recover files smaller than 32kb unless i purchased it. If I was going to purchase this type program it wouldnt be this one because it is too complicated. show Review details
