Data Recovery Software – Zero Assumption Recovery
The next one I tried. This one took a little more effort to get through its scan. By default, it didn’t seem to skip forward after running into repeated read errors and I don’t think I could cancel the operation (I think I had to kill it with task manager). It also took significantly longer than GetDataBack to complete its scan (multiple hours vs 1).
Once done, the file selection UI was unweildy. There is an option to display individual files (essential, because sometimes directory names are lost/meaningless) but it only seemed to disply the files if the directory also included another directory.
I decided to keep looking, especially since this one is $99.
