Reviews for Power Data Recovery
It recovered my lost files from a damaged external HDD.
On paper, MiniTool Power Data Recovery is a viable option to the dozens of file recovery software available on the market. The application promises to deliver an easy but effective data recovery experience that does not require any technical knowledge. Despite all that, what drew my attention to this data recovery app is its ability to recover files from damaged drives. Here is what I found after taking the application through the test.
At a glance
At first, MiniTool Power Data Recovery comes across as a straightforward application with few features and options. However, there is more than meets the eye. On running the application for the first time, it is fine to think of this data recovery piece of software as simple given its clean interface with nicely arranged options. The options are clearly indicated to show what they do with additional info when hover on them. One should choose appropriately during a data recovery session but the options overlap.
Recover data from virus affected drives
It goes without saying that computer viruses pose a major concern whenever you use your computer. Rightfully so, many people have lost their files through viruses that convert the files into shortcuts. Thankfully, MiniTool Power Data Recovery can recover those files within a short time. After choosing a recovery option, go ahead and open it whereby you will find your files. This way, choose the files you want to recover and save them to a different location.
With a USB drive of less than 8GB, the Full scan option will only take minutes to complete. Such a period is relatively short when you doing a file recovery task. As the scan takes place, you will see a nice progress bar that indicates the remaining time, number of found files, and the completed task in percentage.
Preserves file names
It is no strange to run a file recovery task using data recovery software and end up with numbered files. In such cases, you will have to spend a considerable amount of time trying to open and identify each file. That is not the case with MiniTool Power Data Recovery. This tool preserves the names of the recovered files hence making it easy to identify them right away.
Supports additional storage media
This file recovery tools will come in handy if you have accidentally formatted your CD or DVD that had content. For the best results, ensure that you choose the CD/DVD option from the main window to get started. That is so because each recovery module focusses on a given recovery process for the best results.
MiniTool Power Data Recovery surely delivers on its promises. Its clean and straightforward interface with clearly indicated option sets you ready to start your data recovery without facing any challenge. The program works smoothly most of the time regardless of the task you throw at it. It is a recovery software worth downloading.
Thanks for this program Ashraf. I accidentally a folder of audiobooks & then cleared the recycle bin (don’t ask why). To recover the audio books, I 1st used recova & it found all the files but NOT ONE played. Next I tried Puran Utilities & same thing. I’d started to recover the file from my original CD’s & then this program came along & it recovered all the files & they ALL played. This is saved me program I will buy for sure. Thanks again Ashraf, this program saved me about 200 hours of recovery time from the original CD’s.

Short, and right to the point, with empirical proof.
In my experience hardly ‘Piece of Crap’ . In fact I found it to be very good software as the previous poster commented. I managed to recover a load of files I thought I had lost for ever. Thank you
Piece of crap. Installed on Win7 crashes as soon as you launch!

More than likely a Windows problem.
Power Data Recovery is a tool that was created to help users recover data that is lost after deleting, creating a new partition or after a system crash. The software is designed to search your entire drive and recover the data that you need. Better yet, it can also help you find lost data from DVD disks, CD, flash drives and memory sticks.
MiniTool Power Data Recovery isn’t just a data recovery software –it comprises of a number of tools all with a specific function to aid recover files safely from internal or external media. The five recovery modules available on this software include Lost Partition Recovery, CD/DVD Recovery, Damaged Partition Recovery, Digital Media Recovery and Undelete Recovery.
I find Power Data Recovery to have a clean and intuitive user interface. You do not have to be an expert at software to use it –basically, if you know to select a partition to recover data from, you are good to go. The file recovery options are clearly laid out on the homepage. Once you select an option, you can begin the recovery process easily. The only problem with the recovery interface is that there is not preview of a file before you recover it.
This software is easy to use and performs quite well when recovering from any media. You only need to select the recovery mode and then the partition before you begin the recovery. For huge files, the software does not designate a way to choose a start point and end point for the recovery –you just have to recover the entire file. It also tend to hang for very long periods when you recover files that contain damaged sectors.
The user-interface is beautifully designed and can be understood by any user. The buttons have been clearly indicated and you do not have to dig deeper to find simple but very useful options.
MiniTool Power Data Recovery allows for the recovery of files from different types of media. You can recover lost files from CD/DVD disks, flash sticks, and your PC’s hard disk. The good thing is that all these options work well.
One disadvantage that stands out with this software is that it hangs for very long periods when you are recovering files that have damaged sectors. Well, this is a problem with most similar software. However, if you compare it with the most advanced recovery tools, you will notice that they have a scanning option that allows you to check for damaged sectors and even avoid them during recovery.
You cannot minimize the dialog window while this software is in operation. It is practically impossible to work conveniently with an annoying dialog box on top of your files, especially when it is scanning files –a process that takes quite a lot of time to complete.
Although this free software does its basic function –data recovery – well, it has quite a number of cons that are very annoying. Whether it is hanging for a very long time or displaying an annoying dialogue box, the software will cause you a headache here and there.

Your FREE alternative ?
Program DOES have a preview function, at least in the area for recovering deleted files (that’s all I checked out). I selected a deleted .txt file, clicked the orange Preview button, and the text appeared. Unfortunately it had nothing to do with the original contents of the file. It’s space on the disk had been overwritten by another file. That’s why it’s so important to recover files immediately! I definitely like how quickly it scanned my C: drive, and let me search by folders to find what I want. Many programs like this just present a list of deleted files, regardless of folder. Very disappointed this license does not include the Bootable Disk version for those times when you need to recover files when Windows won’t start, but as a program to try when other disasters strike, very nice. Thanks!
It is a very good software.
