This is the best all in one data recovery program. It’s what I personally tend to use when recovering files because it has the widest reach. It can recover deleted photos, formatted drives, lost partitions, raw recovery, from memory cards, just about all instances of recovery. The program fairly easy to use but not as simple as some because of all the advanced features this program provides. There is a Pro version that can also recover Mac files and for computer techs there is a Technician program that is uber sweet. In most cases the standard version of Recover My Files is more then enough to get your files back.

Remo Media rocks. There is a pro version but remo media is a littler and far cheaper version. With the Media edition focuses on recovery of media such as photos, music and video. It works for recovering photos from Ipods, external media like flash memory cards and of course from hard drives. This light version is just for Media files. If you are looking at getting other files you should use the Pro version

There is a nice user interface as well. The program is best to use on deleted photo’s. If the drive has been formatted I would use Recover My Files instead.

For a long time I have liked EaseUS. Their data partition program rocks and they tend to put out some very good products. All in all the Data Recovery Wizard porgram is not a bad program. It’s easy to use and does a decent job on the data recovery front. Not as good as Recover My Files or Remo Recover Pro.

In most cases I don’t even place bad reviews on my sites. The reason is I don’t want people making the mistake of purchasing them. However I made an exception with File Recovery Plus. I do not have much experience with this program because I could never get it to work right. It was tested on 5 different computers and not 1 time did it seem to work at all for me. I’m surprised Esupport is even selling this product. Perhaps it worked at one point and time but it does not seem to work for me at all. I would recommend a bat to the hard drive before suggesting this program out.

HDD Regenerator is one of those programs that every data recovery pro needs to use. This program is not intended to recover files by it’s self per-say. What it does is repair bad sectors on hard drives. Once the bad sectors have been repaired you should be able to run your data recovery program on the drive and recover most if not all the data. Below is my in-depth review of this product and how I use it along with real life examples.

Stellar Mac Data Recovery can recover files from both deleted and formatted hard drives as well as from crashed hard drives as long as the drive still spins up. It can also recover data from Ipod’s. Some extra tools that come with this program are a Boot DVD program that allows you to boot with to help recover files as well as a Disk Imaging utility to copy an entire hard drive or logical volume. This comes in handy when you have a crashed MAC os and want to pull all the files over.

When it comes to recovering your Ipod files from a Windows based computer Stellar Ipod recovery is a great program to use. This program can scan the ipod and pull off your files.

SQL Database Recovery Software
I’ve had to recover SQL files before. You can always try the c-panel interface on your websites host to attempt to repair the SQL file but if that does not work or you don’t have that option available to you then Stellar SQL Database Recovery can save your butt. The trial always you to scan the file to see if this program will work for you. If it does then you will want to make the purchase. There are not many programs out there that can repair corrupt SQL files so your options are limited.
