Editor review

Recover My Files Pro is a data recovery tool for Windows. Making use of advanced search techniques, the program attempts to recover data that was accidentally deleted, formatted, lost after a OS reinstall, and countless other reasons. It can be used to recover files from several sources: hard disk drives, partitions, USB drives, SD cards, and other storage units. The Professional edition has a bunch of additional features over the standard version, like the ability to recover data from RAID drives and ISO images.

The program has the ability to perform thorough, advanced searches to find all kind of files, still it remains simple enough even for users with no experience in this task. It is user friendly and its interface guides you in every step of the recovery process with brief and clear instructions. It offers two data recovery types: Recover Files and Recover a Drive.

Recover Files is your choice if you want the program to search for individual files in a drive or disk unit that is working properly. You can choose from two search methods: the first one scans the file system quickly to find files that were emptied from the recycle bin, removed by a virus, etc. The second method expands the search to the entire drive for 'lost files' by locating the files structure. This is a thorough and deeper analysis that you can resort to if the previous search was unsuccessful.

A drive recovery implies a more complex process by which the program attempts to recover all the files in a drive or partition with their corresponding file and folder structure. It is the way to go if you want to recover a formatted or corrupt disk or if you have reinstalled your OS and consequently lost your data. This process can take hours depending on the drive capacity, and of course, on your PC resources. Two search methods are available for drive recovery as well: the automatic scan will try to recover all the files in a selected drive, including lost files; and the second method allows you to manually select the file types that the program will look for.

As the application performs the scan, it returns a list of all the files found. You can analyze the results and filter them by date, file type, and other criteria. The preview feature turns out very useful to help you easily select the files you want to save and check if they can be fully recovered. The files you want to recover can be then saved to any directory, other than the source, or even to a CD/DVD.

In my case, I used the program to recover a few photos that I accidentally deleted from a memory card. I used the Recover Files option and narrowed the search to image files. The program retrieved a list of all the deleted photos in the card and was able to recover 90% of the deleted pics. Not all the pictures were recovered, but the program did an excellent job of locating those pics that were still recoverable.
