Overview:

If you're in need of a file recovery suite that can quickly and easily recover files that you thought were gone for good, then you should consider the 7-Data Recovery Suite. Not only does this software work with standard hard drives, it also works to recover files from flash drives, memory sticks, and memory cards as well. Even files from damaged and formatted drives can be recovered. This software supports a wide range of storage devices and file systems, so you should try the software out to see if it's compatible with your system configuration and hardware. Most likely it will be.

Installation:

Installation of this software is quick and error free. The 7-Data Recovery Suite doesn't come bundled with any adware or spyware, which makes using it a lot nicer than some other programs available for download. It's compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008. The software itself doesn't take up very many resources, so as long as your OS is running smoothly, you don't have to worry about any minimum system requirements. It should run smoothly as long as your OS is running smoothly too. Get it from the author's homepage or from Download3k.

Interface:

The interface of the 7-Data Recovery Suite is very stylish and easy to get the hang of, even for beginners. After starting the program, you're presented with 4 options. Deleted Recovery, Complete Recovery, Lost Partition Recovery, and Digital Media Recovery. You can also navigate to the bottom of the program window and select from Register, Website, Support, Facebook, and Twitter. 

All in all the interface presents you with one of the easiest ways to get your files back that will be easy for anyone to accomplish. 

Pros:

One of the great things about this software is that you can recover up to 1 gigabyte of files with the free version of the program. That gives you an ample amount of recovery ability so you can test the program out. Also, the 7-Data Recovery software supports a wide range of devices and file systems, so more than likely it will be compatible with your current setup. You can easily access the 7-Data Recovery Suite FAQ and How To Use sections through the bottom of the program window, which makes learning how to use the program easy and trouble free. 

Cons:

  • An inherent bug in the program sometimes prevents the Preview feature from working all the time - Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't
  • In order for the preview function to work correctly, the file size of the file in question must not be over 80 megabytes in size
  • Deleted file recovery feature is sometimes unreliable

Alternatives

R-Studio - Although it takes a bit of a skilled hand to make full use of, this is one of the most capable file recovery software alternatives available. It got consistently high marks in the software reviews from numerous sites, and is compatible with Windows versions going all the way back to Windows 9x. A beginner will be able to use the basic features with no problem, and advanced users will be thankful for the additional tools available for their use. 

Recover My Files - This is another great alternative to the 7-Data Recovery Suite. Improvements to this software are being released on a bi-weekly basis to ensure that all new file types are supported and that customers can get the most out of the program. So whether it's a hard drive crash, partition change, reformatting issue, and more, this software can help get you your files back safely. 

Conclusion:

The 7-Data Recovery Suite is a great program. Although there are a few issues that need to be corrected in future releases, such as the Preview feature not working correctly, most people will find that this software does a fine job of recovering lost and deleted data files with no problem at all.
