I have used the app successfully about a year ago. But, I have to question the amount of work that goes into it. Your versioning numbering system: 3.3.5.13399 seems a little strange, over the top I would say. I look at it this way: to go from 3.3 to 3.4 you would probably add 10 features. From 3.3.5 to 3.3.6 to 3.3.7 etc. you probably fix 10 to 20 errors in each. Then you have under 3.3.5 over 13399 changes, implying that you keep track of each? That computes to millions of changes to keep track of!! I highly doubt that!

In urgent need (who isn't when photos get lost) for a friend who needed vacation photos resurrected, I bought the Mac version from Kagi; it was stated that the serial number would follow "in a few minutes" and of course, it did not! I sent an email to the developer, and called +32-4-3446510 (as indicated on their 2007 Webpage) where I left a message in French saying I needed the serial number asap. It frustrates me quite a bit not being able to save the photos, and not to obtain a response. Nothing in my junk and trash folders, either...

Still not 64-bit capable -- EVERY app should be made 64-bit, then folks simply Get Info, and launch as 32-bit, if they prefer.

I bought PhotoRescue via RegSoft four days ago because it seemed to be able to recover the files in my corrupted SD card. Yay! ... BUT as today I'm still waiting for my serial number. RegSoft did not answered to my e-mail asking for information.

Maybe because accidentally I've opened the card through the Finder, now the demo version cannot recover the pictures anymore! I've lost a lot of time and my hope to recover my pictures just because this crappy buying method. The next time I will search for the pirated version!

I purchased it again in April 2010 and then I got soon the key. To my request assistance in 2009, the RegSoft support answered five days after, saying that the payment was marked as "fraudolent" (??), but meanwhile my picture were gone :(
So I canceled my order. The support from the developer was faster. My experience with RegSoft is always bad.

I use PhotoRec by CGSecurity. It's free and open source and although it is command line based it is easy to use for the relatively inexperienced. It tries to recover all files not just pictures...

...Wait a minute this sounds a lot like Photorec but is a touch more expensive - $99 for the "expert version". Check out Photorec before you buy, it might save you money.

Thanks for the recommendation for photorec, the command line tool that does everything PhotoRescue does. PhotoRescue has a nicer GUI and is 'easier' to use, but the truth is the command line interface for photorec is menu driven and simple and it recovered all the lost images from my Nikon D90 card without any issues. So if you are not afraid of command line, go with the free solution, use photorec.

Also thanks for the pointer to PhotoRec, which is available at http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec.

It worked great to recover deleted photos on an xD card from an Olympus camera.

As noted by the previous reply, the command line has a simple curses based gui that is easy to use. And there are good step-by-step instructions on the wiki.

Like others, I have only a success story to share about this app. It got back about 98% of the photos from an SD card that I accidentally deleted. This was version 2, mind you, but the only issue I had was that the date created and files names were quite garbled... which meant there was a bit of legwork needed to put the photos in correct chronological order again.

My only complaint is that the upgrade from version 2 to version 3 is $19. I already paid $29 for the app... upgrades to tools like this should always be

Sorry but no can do... the software is reasonably priced for the memories it will retrieve, I'm sure you'll agree.

Take your software-stealing arse to bittorrent where it belongs. I can't believe you're trying to pirate software on MacUpdate!

When I needed to recover RAW image files from a Compact Flash card that my Nikon D70S showed in the camera but were not visible through the card reader I tried a few apps. PhotoRescue is the only one that worked and it was fast and simple to use.
Exif Untrasher could not find the images. FAIL.
CardRaider took several hours of preparation then crashed. FAIL.
FileSalvage couldn't find anything. FAIL.

PhotoRescue allows you to see if it can locate the missing files in demo mode before paying for the app. Once the items are located you sign up and when the registration code arrives you can then save the recovered files.
US$30 is a fair price for something that works so well and does what the other apps mentioned above could not.

I don't normally write reviews for apps but as finding this one was such a task I figured this might help others in the same situation.
