I am not one to write comments generally on products that do what they profess to do, but I had tried other products on my Olympus digital camera disk, and they had not worked. This one brought back the 147 photos that I had despaired of ever seeing. Note that I ran it once, and it said "No files recovered." I ran it again without letting the computer go to sleep. I also restarted and switched USB ports that the card reader was in, and those kinds of rituals, and it worked like a charm. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Yippee!!

Impressive! Works very well!

My sister arrived tonight at my home: she was unable to download the 220 pictures she had on her Nikon camera. I made several attempts myself, no way to do it. She had gone to the local shop where she had bought the camera, they attempted with a card reader: no success, card corrupted.

I then remembered having read about PhotoRescue Wiward and PhotoRescue Expert. I decided to test Wizard, since it seemed to be the easiest one to use. I selected PTP, didn't recognize the disk. I then tried with Mass Storage, and this time it identified the disk. PhotoRescue spent a few minutes attempting to access the content, and then... miracle! One by one, the "lost" pictures began to appear on the screen, it recovered all of them! No need to say I immediately bought Wizard, which allowed me to get the code for activating the code. (By the way, this is a very nice way of providing the ability to test a shareware: I didn't need to buy it before making absolutely sure it would work for the specific task I wanted to do.)

Once I got my code and activated fully the Wizard, it was just a matter of a few minutes to have all the pictures on my computer. And I did not even need a card reader, although this is recommended: I managed to do it straight from the camera!

Wonderful was also the fact that it is extremely easy to use even for a non technical user: it just does the job, the only thing one has to do is to click on "Next".

After this very good experience, I just don't understand how there can be people who are not pleased with that Wizard! For me, it did its job wonderfully, and I give it 5 stars on each category (true, it does not have many features: but how can one complain about that when the main feature is... simplicity! why to have many features when it just works the way it is? and people who want more are free to buy the expert version).

This is a great utility. I had just finished taking about 20 pictures of little kids for Christmas cards and then my SmartMedia card pooped out. There was no WAY I was retaking those pictures. I googled this utility up, and 10 minutes later 90% of the images were recovered quickly and easily with PhotoRescue.

A real lifesaver.

PhotoRescue will undelete, unerase and recover pictures, images, photos and files lost on corrupted, erased or damaged compact flash, smartmedia, memory sticks, mmd, XD, multimedia or secure digital memory cards when other solutions fail. Unlike our competitors, we do guarantee our data recovery performance: once the demo previews your pic, they will be recovered or you get your money back (see our refund policy).

PhotoRescue supports the recovery of all file types but its algorithms are particularly optimized for JPG or JPEG files, TIFF files, GIFs and BMPs. It also offers a constantly updated support for CRW, NEF, ORF, MRW and many types of movie files. In some cases, we can even rebuild pictures that have suffered minor corruptions.

If your card is damaged, corrupted, or has been formatted, PhotoRescue is the best data-recovery solution you can get: it consistently beats other solutions in independent tests. PhotoRescue even deals with cases where the media is NOT visible as a drive letter anymore. We get at the pictures other recovery software does not even see. Our unique unfragmenting technology rebuilds cherished memories that would otherwise have been lost forever. Try PhotoRescue today.
