Here is a little more on Search and Recover. http://iolo.com/sr/5/
What we thought: Yep, it happened to me. Shortly after my husband was deployed in 2004, my computer crashed. The "fix it" place said the hard drive was fried. The worst news was that i had recently downloaded all of my pictures from my camera onto the hard drive and of course, they were gone. We had gotten this camera as a wedding gift, used it to take pictures at the wedding, on the honeymoon and the last pictures of us together before he was deployed...only about 2 months worth of pictures, but VERY important pictures...all gone. If only I had something like iolo's Search and Recover then...
We haven't needed to use this program since receiving it to review and I can't say that's unfortunate because losing your stuff makes for a bad day, but at least now I know all of our treasured pictures are safe:) iolo's Search and Recover isn't just for pictures though. Ever pulled an all-nighter to finish up a term paper just to realize that it didn't save properly? Been there, done that:( Once again, Search and Recover to the rescue! This is a must have software program for the back to school season!
