Windows 7 lost directory found! 5 stars by arakin69345 May 16, 2012
This has been a lifesaver. I was clearing out an external hard drive, onto a main hard drive on my windows 7 machine, cut-and-paste. I copied over 122 Gig of data, with a lot of sorting of it into various subfolders, a days work. In the morning, the WHOLE directory wasn't showing, yet a few files were there from a different directory (strange, I know). I Did not delete it, or empty any recycle bin, it was just missing! Luckily I have a spare hard drive with lots of spare capacity. While I love MediaRecover on Macs, I struggled to find a program for PC's. This worked a treat, I knew what the directory was called (The route directory that was missing on my PC hard drive), so searched for it, split-second reply, then successfully recovered onto new drive, so as not to overwrite the data, 122 Gig in under 20 mins! Thank you sooooo much! This program is very very effective! (You do need to right click on the program and click 'Run as administrator' as another post suggested). show Review details
Error in restoration 3.2.13 in usb key disks 4 stars by gilles.nibart517 Mar 29, 2012
When executed on an USB key disk used Restoration (3.2.13) aborts and leave the FAT32 broken down, while with a real disk it works fine. It has been tested with several USB keys (Emtec or Attach) under Windows XP SP3 Home. So the software needs a new version. show Review details
