Editorial review


Francisco Martínez Senior editor

Multistage Recovery is capable of retrieving files and folders that you thought lost forever. These files may have been deleted accidentally (or not), stored in formatted partitions, or wiped out from the recycle bin, for instance. The program supports all Windows file systems (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT and NTFS or NTFS5), so that you can use it not only with hard disks but also with Flash drives and other external devices.

Probably the feature that makes this recovery utility stand out from most of its competitors is the program’s “honesty”.
Unlike other similar tools that boast of showing endless lists of deleted files, be they retrievable or not, Multistage Recovery will only show you those files that can be effectively recovered. This means that every single file and folder that appears on the program’s list after a scan process is there because it can be retrieved with 100% accuracy. This allows the program to show you perfect previews of any of the images listed, instead of just tiny fragments of them.

All internal and external storage devices are fully supported. Hard drives, Flash drives, USB drives, floppy disks, and all types of removable cards (SD, microSD, TransFlash, etc.) can be thoroughly scanned looking for files to undelete. The scan processes themselves are also one of the program’s big assets. It offers you three different undelete methods, depending on the type of file you are looking for. Together with the program’s default scan, there are specific methods to look for missing NTFS files, FAT files, and files in formatted partitions (low level file search).

If you are looking for an honest recovery tool that does bring back to life all the lost files and folders it can identify, Multistage Recovery is a tool worth trying. The program’s one-window interface makes the entire recovery process simple and gratifying.

Publisher's description

MultiStage Recovery is a professional file recovery tool for Windows. It is designed to quickly recover files from hard disks, floppy disks, flash drives, digital camera cards, and most other digital storage devices. The program supports all Windows file systems including NTFS/NTFS5,FAT12/FAT16/FAT32/VFAT. With an optimized algorithm and smart built-in cache system, the tool has incredibly fast scan of hard drives.

The most important feature of MultiStage Recovery is that it finds everything that can be actually recovered. This is not the case with competitors of MultiStage Recovery, whose software often finds and displays non-recoverable files just to boost their recovery claims. It is usually the case with competitor’s software that such data is already lost or has been rewritten, so cannot be recovered.

MultiStage Recovery has user-friendly interface that offers users a truly straightforward and satisfying experience. No special skills are required, and the program is absolutely suitable even for a newbie to computers. The tool has the ability to keep logs and sort located files by name, size, type, location, date created, and date modified. In addition, MultiStage Recovery has an advanced search system and built-in preview feature that supports over 60 formats of image, music, and text files. Users are able to view pictures or documents before the beginning of a recovery.
Every prudent and responsible user of a PC should always have the tool for recovery purposes because the unexpected is always a danger and there is no guarantee that disaster won’t strike.
