Questions and answers

  • Why don't some files open for viewing or editing after data recovery?

    After deletion, the contents of the file could be completely or partially overwritten with new data. This creates errors in the internal structure of the file and then programs cannot edit or display such a file properly.

  • Why are my photos displayed in small size after data recovery?

    Typically, Jpeg files contain several images that duplicate the main picture in a lower resolution. If it is impossible to restore the photo in its original size, our programs do their best to recover at least a part of the image .

  • Can your program fix any error in any file?

    No, but you can try the program for free. If you can view your file in the program's preview window, then it can be fixed and recovered.

  • If I pay for the program now, how long will it take before I receive my registration data?

    It depends on the payment method you use. If you order online with your credit card or PayPal, you will receive the registration key immediately after payment.

  • What are the requirements for successful data recovery?

    For successful recovery, you must stop using the storage device until the necessary files are fully restored.

    If it is an external drive, memory card or flash drive, then connect it to the PC and analyze them using our program.

    If the data is deleted as a result of formatting the system disk, resetting the operating system or reinstalling Windows, then stop further installation of the operating system and programs. Connect the drive to another computer and perform recovery operations.

    Recovered files must be saved to a different drive.

  • How long does it take to recover my data?

    Data recovery can take a long time if you work with a disk larger than 1 terabyte. Faulty drives can also be scanned for a long time. However, in most cases, recovery takes less than 30 minutes.
