Kogarah, Australia (PressExposure) April 25, 2013 -- GetData software has launched their latest data recovery software, Recover My Files v5 ( http://www.recovermyfiles.com ). This simple but effective tool has more than 400,000 users who owe their lost data to this program.
'It has been an interesting 10 years' says Director John Hunter. 'What started out as a tool for police computer forensics quickly found a place as a commercial application. We haven't stopped working on it since'.
One of the biggest challenges over this 10 year period is dealing with ever increasing hard disk capacity. 'The average home PC now has 2tb drives and people are keeping more data than ever before. In the early days it was mostly the recovery of documents like word and excel. It quickly changed to digital photo collections, then music, and now home theatre systems mean many Recover My Files customers are looking to recover their HD movie collections'. 'To stay ahead of our competition we have had to continuously reinvent our data recovery technology and look to find ways for faster recovery of larger and larger files'.
One of the major draw cards of Recover My Files has been its ability run preview recovered files without the need to purchase. Customers can buy with confidence. 'We have updated our preview components in Version 5 to include video and music. There is no substitution for seeing, hearing or watching files to know that they can be successfully recovered'. The new version 5 interface adds innovative sorting, listing and filtering features that make locating lost files a straight forward task.
Another notable trend says Hunter, is that many Recover My Files customers are recovering external USB hard disks. These devices are often purchased for backups but end up as the principal storage device. As many users will attest, external drives can inexplicably lose a drive letter or turn unallocated or RAW. They are also often forgotten and frequently suffer an accidental format.
For $70, Recover My Files remains a cost effective program for any user trying to recover from a data loss situation.
