I keep having memory card / phone problems and I have lost my pics, vids, and other files multiple times now. I usually have to reformat the card before my PC or phone will recognize it. I then have used various freeware programs to recover my data. The problem that I run into is I have to use multiple programs to recover certain file types and the file names are not recovered. Does anyone have any suggestions for a free or paid comprehensive data recovery software? I need something that will recover file names if possible and a wide range of file types including media, documents, program files, ect.. I also want it to be simple to use. I am willing to pay for a decent software but I want to know what suggestions people have. Can anyone swear by a particular software?
Ok, I see what you really need. You need one data recovery software can recover lost pictures, videos or even music from memory card, and sometimes, when you reformat your memory card, this software must recover data from this formatted memory card.
And the most important, you want this software easy to use and can recover files with file name and a wide range of file types.
I really have a recommendation. This software can recover all file types (deleted, formatted, lost, missing etc.) with file name, it can recover pictures, documents, videos, applications etc. it supports local hard drive, external hard drive, memory card with different brands and specifications. You can use this one software to recover all your files, and this software is quite easy to use, simple and intuitive interface.
Now I don’t know what OS you are running,
If you are running Windows, you can refer to EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard http://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/
If you are running Mac OS X 10.5/10.6/10.7, you can refer to EaseUS Mac Data Recovery Wizard（free download to scan and find your files, then purchase to recover）, http://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/
I am not advertising the software to you, actually I am making a good thing of it.
Getbackdata is the best software for windows I have used. I tried countless software over the years. And none have stacked well enough against getback. Only issue I have is since I don't use windows anymore I can't use that software...
