Pros: Easy to use.
Recovers data from flash memory cards.

Cons: Takes hours for it's operation.

Overall: MiniTool Power Data Recovery is my first choice and is a useful data recovery software. I was able to recover data ever after I have emptied the recycle bin. Most important thing I liked about this product is it's easy to use interface. It's very simple and clean with well defined functions. Even though it takes hours to recover data from my entire hard drive but the result is satisfactory. But it doesn't allow you to skip sectors. Overall I like the software ever since I used it.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a great alternative for most data recovery software.

Pros: Easy to use
You don't have to be a computer wiz to use
Affordable
Works on any type of storage media

Cons: Nothing so far

Overall: Out on the job one day I made a series of photos and notes and saved them to a flash drive, when I got home I plugged the drive in and went to make dinner before I started to edit the notes and photos for bids. we experienced a short outage and when the power came on I could not access the info on the drive, frantic I kept trying to access the info, I used every trick I could think of, then I remembered I had MiniTool, I fired it up and within a few minutes I recovered everything, saved me a whole day's extra work. It was easy to recover my data, it's a real keeper.

Recommendations to other buyers: Even if you only use it once, it's worth having

Overall: Hi, the MiniTool did just what I needed. I got a new SSD and wanted it to be my OS drive for faster boot up, but I had lots of programs installed, some on C drive and some on D drive. I did not want to reinstall Windows 10, especially because I did the free upgrade from Windows8. Reinstall Win8, then try to figure out how to get the free upgrade to Win10 again? No thanks! With MiniTool, I ran the "Migrate OS to SSD/HD Wizard" and it worked perfectly!

Pros: Simple And Easy To Use Interface.
Easy To Follow Wizard.

Cons: Takes Hour To Recover A Whole Hard Drive.

Overall: MiniTool Power Data Recovery is my personal best when it comes to data recovery. I was able to recover data from my external hard drive. Even though my drive was reformated, I was able to get my data back. One of the most useful features of this software is that it has a feature setting for recovering data from small devices. It is a very useful software and would definitely recommend.

Recommendations to other buyers: While recovering data from memory card do use a card reader instead of card inserted into the phone.

Cons: Most software is a PIA, mini tool is easy

Overall: Divided large drive into 4 partitions, used one partition for document backup. When computer crashed and had to re-install windows, my document partition was not affected and easily recovered all my docs!!!! Absolutely needed!!

Recommendations to other buyers: If you want to save important data, partition a drive to separate it from the operating system

Overall: Partitioning made easy. Never failed me. Easy to use interface. I partitioned a 1 terabyte Western digital hard drive into three separate dives to have a backup of my computer configuration. It performed this operation flawlessly. I now store the drive apart from my computer and have everything near at hand in case of a major disaster like a fire. I can just grab the drive and run and know I will be able to restore all my data from the three drives I have in my computer.

Recommendations to other buyers: No

Pros: Ability to recover files and look really good to my client

Cons: Nothing

Overall: Had a client's machine, infected with Cryptowall ransomware. Cryptowall copies files, encrypts as it copies them, then deletes the original. It is therefore possible to restore the original, unencrypted copies of many files previously unrecoverable. MiniTool Power Data Recovery has saved the day. I have also recovered contents of formatted drives etc.

Recommendations to other buyers: Install it on a different physical drive

Comments: One of my kids accidentally erased some precious family photos when I forgot to unplug the portable hard drive containing the photos from our PC. I only found that out a few weeks later but the hard disk was continuing being used during that time.

Upon discovering the fact, I pray the deleted files were not overwritten. Minitools Power Data Recovery saved the day, allowing me to recover a substantial part of the deleted files.

Lessons learned: always keep a backup copy offsite and invest in a worthy data recovery software.

Comments: Most of the computer users use it for fun things and hate complicated settings and programs. Ease of use and quick installation process are two salient virtues of MiniTool Power Data Recovery. This data recovery software is very easy to install, easy to use and user-friendly. You don't need to install anything additional and make any complicated settings.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery never failed whenever I used it to recover lost/deleted data. MiniTool Power Data Recovery helped me to recover 438 GB data and 95% data was usable.

It works like a charm with USB flash drive, SD card, local and external storage hard disks.

Must have software to get control of your hard disks!

Pros: Great UI, the fact that it works! I always expect good results, provided hardware will co-operate

Cons: None

Overall: After a nasty infection of Cryptowall ransomware, my client was left without dozens of important spreadsheets that contained vital info she had not backed up elsewhere. As it goes, sometimes Crypto ransomware makes an encrypted copy of files, then deletes the unencrypted copy. This was the case here, as I was able to restore her spreadsheets and a whole lot more. The process is slow, but it works 100%. Great user-interface too. MiniTool PDR is the best I've used.

Recommendations to other buyers: Install it on an different physical drive than the one you're attempting a recovery on.

Great affordable backup source.

Pros: Ease of use.

Cons: Compatibility issue for larger drives unless you know how to partition and resize sections.

Overall: Use of the backup utility is straight forwarded and when combined with a partition checker and resizer it can be used to move to a larger and better hard drive without losing any data.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is as it name says a mini tool. If it had a suite set for utilities then more could be done. Some computers do not like the sizing and can restrict the backup and recovery. I use Partition Magic to help in recovery to a larger drive. Needs to be more USB flash friendly.
