Ok, I will post here my comment, as it’s not considered as a review and it’s not published on the main page.

I don’t recommend this software: I had bought it two years ago and was not able to use it: my mouse was not recognized, and was not working. I had also an extra ATA controller that was not recognized, so two of my HDD were not accessible.

This version seems to be quite the same, the version only changes for the launching program (from 2.0.0.1 to 3.0.0.1) but all the other executables have the same version (2.0.0.1). So it’s been two years and no update?
The partitions on my 2 TB Western Digital SATA disk are not accessible and the whole disk is flagged as “unallocated” (MB Asus MSA97 five years old with AMD chipset): seriously ???

Another issue with this software is that they are using a WinPE environnement (from Windows 7 Ultimate), and as far as i know, it is not anymore allowed by Microsoft to distribute it freely (Paragon stopped distributing it, Macrium too, among others).

I won’t trust this program to do any change on my computer.
