Windows 7: Data Recovery Puran works Great

Data Recovery Puran works Great

Just had a disaster with Mini Tool partition wizard bug. Wrecked a partition.

That is wrong, plenty of free space ( it was trying to align the partition ) Another message popped saying it was a PW bug. Couldn't take a screenie of that as not able to select until okaying the bug message.

Checkdisk made a lot of corrections, but almost nothing left apart from the program files folder.


1) To see if Mini tool could redeem itself, I ran MT Data Recovery . ( Not free )

MiniTool Power Data Recovery - Personal License

It did a great job, finding several possible volumes, highlighting the most likely. Recovered just about everything with folder structure, and all working.


2) For comparison, I ran Recuva ( free). Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

Sadly, even with deep scan it only found a few useless bits on the least likely volume. Not finding the others at all.


3) Then I tried Puran (free ). Data Recovery - Recovery files from damaged media

Hadn't used it before. It found the same volumes as MT data recovery had, suggested the same most likely, and revealed the same files.

It was also able to recover with folder structure in full working order.

I did have to fiddle about a little at this point.

The default resulted in recovered files that were broken. Selecting the second option ( as in screenie ) worked perfectly.

Thanks for this.

Thanks for posting this. I'll download and give it a try. You might also like to take a look at Lazesoft's Recovery Suite as that's also worked well for me! I'm not saying that it does a better job - just that it's worth a try.

You're welcome. Yes, I have looked at lazesoft before. Iirc it also makes boot media, which ios a nice touch.

I make my own pe , so am interested in which programs are best to include. I have the Minitool data recovery, it works very well, but it isn't free.

Always good to find another which is free. Tho he desrves a donation if it works for you ( fair enough, paid recovery progs usually charge about $70)

I also think I will stick with Aomei for partition alignment .

They also do a fantastic free imaging program. http://www.backup-utility.com/aomei-...-windows7.html

Puran refer to an official portable version of the file recovery tool. I can't see were it is though.
Portable is good of course because it can be run from a Winpe or Hirens mini XP.

It doesn't do much on a basic scan, but with the boxes ticked as in the screenie, it is remarkably effective.
