Pandora Recovery Review

Good

Free, easy wizard, advanced filtering options, support for most file systems in all Windows versions, color and percentage recovery indicators, recovery of files deleted a few months back, recovery of NTFS and Alternate Data Streams (ADS).

Bad

No portable version, browser toolbar installation prompt during tool installation, time-consuming indexing of the system, no support for camera memory or USB, occasional hanging while recovering.

Overall

Pandora Recovery is only for NTFS-formatted drives and other drives from where the chances of recovery are good.

Editor's Ratings

Free Download

Pandora Recovery is a free tool that efficiently recovers deleted files on NTFS drives, not on FAT or FAT32. So, it runs well on Windows XP, 2000, or Vista, and not on USB drives or memory cards of camera. The tool finds and recovers any kind of file such as documents, songs, pictures, and movies. However, it lacks a few advanced features present in costly data recovery tools such as recovering individual e-mails like the Search and Recover tool of Iolo Technologies does. Because it is an ad-supported tool, Pandora Recovery offers third-party components for download and makes some browser alterations.

Features and Options

Pandora Recovery works by scanning the drive and creating an index of deleted or existing files via an easy wizard. After scanning, you can fully control which files to recover and where. You can even search to look for a deleted file by full or partial name, size, creation date, or last accessed date. There are three scanning methods for you to choose: Search, Browse, and Deep.

The Deep Scan, although taking a longer time to complete, is a more systematic method. It works by unveiling information from corrupted tables and drives and searching for a specific type of file. After the scanning is over, an Explorer-based layout finds a certain file and displays its name, creation date, size, modification date, and type. Just opening the context menu gives a quick sight of the file, properties, and recovery destination. Above all, you can also specify to recover file attributes and ADS.

Luckily, the software needs few resources for recovering. However, scanning takes time to complete as per the drive size and search mode.

Conclusion

Pandora Recovery is ideal for basic recovery process free of cost.
