The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 9.0
O&O DiskRecovery offers you the most advanced undelete algorithms to help you recover any deleted, lost, or formatted files or folders. The program’s wizard interface will guide you through the entire recovery process, which is always a stressful experience.
All types of storage devices are fully supported, including internal and external hard drives, memory cards, USB sticks, and camera cards.

The program will automatically detect all drives and storage devices connected to your system, and will ask you to select the one with the deleted or damaged content you wish to recover. It is important that, when possible, you install the program into a different drive from where the deleted files are, to make sure it does not interfere with the recovery process by overwriting sensitive sectors. To this end, the program offers you an Instant Installation mode.

The program offers three scan or search methods – UnErase, for deleted files and folders; Format Recovery, for formatted or otherwise damaged partitions; and DiskRecovery, a deep search on destroyed partitions and disks. You can tick on or off each of them or just tell the program to run the three of them sequentially. Additional settings can be defined to narrow the search, or you may just leave DiskRecovery to scan the entire device for you. Once the scan process has finished (it may take quite a while for high-capacity drives) you will be presented with all the folders that have been deleted or contain deleted files. The lost files in the selected folder are then neatly listed on a different panel, opening a high-quality preview window, whenever an image file is selected.

Both the efficiency of its deep scan algorithms and its Instant Installation feature are good enough reasons to consider O&O DiskRecovery when looking for an efficient and powerful file recovery tool. If we add its wizard-like friendly interface to them, the number of competitors drops dramatically.

Pros

  • Highly efficient with the newest Office documents and archive files (ZIP and 7zip).
  • Offers an Instant Installation not to overwrite data that may be needed to recover lost files.
  • Supports all storage devices and file systems (FAT and NTFS).
  • Fast and thorough scan processes.
  • Wizard-like interface for unstressful recovery processes.

Cons

  • Steep price tag.
