  1. Fantastic review Sujay.
    Data loss situation may strikes anytime and we should better prepare ourself. I'd also recommend you to review about Stellar Phoenix Partition Recovery (http://www.stellarinfo.com/partition-recovery.htm), a professional software shows preview for free and ensure the best recovery in the industry.

  2. It’s pretty decent software. Although most data recovery actions are a gamble if the file has been overwritten by Windows. The best idea is to stop using the partition where the files were. Then try undelete software and pray. I’ve used Reincubate Recover Files when I needed to recover some photos and it did the job.
