Review PC INSPECTOR File Recovery
Have you accidentally deleted files from your computer and would like to try to recover them? You should know that some programs are specially developed for this purpose, such as PC File Inspector Recovery. Thanks to this application, you will be able to bring back to your computer those deleted files, even complete units, so that you don't have to be lamenting about them for a long time.
One of the great advantages of this program compared to other similar ones has to do without a doubt that it is compatible with a huge amount of formats. Therefore, it can recover almost any file that we have deleted.
Which file formats can we recover then? Most of the famous ones, such as ZIP, RTF, TAR, TIF, WAV, MOV, MP3, PDF, PNG, HTM, JPG, LZH, MID, EXE, GIF, HLP, HTML DOC, DXF, DBF, XLS, ARJ, AVI, BMP or CDR, to mention some of the most common ones. You can see then that there are formats that have to do with images, others with audio, some with videos, and that means that there are no limitations of this type regarding the program in question.
The interesting thing is that PC File Inspector Recovery does not only work with the computer's hard drives when it comes to recovering files, but you can also run it on memory cards or flashcards, common in photography. If you have overwritten something on top of its contents or deleted them, you have to know that this program could be the last chance to recover them in time.
The operation of this system is straightforward because once we have opened and run it, the next step will be to choose the drive or memory on which we want it to work, trying to recover the files that have been deleted. The software will take a few seconds or minutes, according to the amount of content it has to recover, and when finished, it will show you which ones are in conditions to be recovered.
Like most applications that try to give us a hand to return to our computer the deleted files, PC File Inspector Recovery has two main modes, one fast and one slower, but also more exhaustive. Of course, you will have to select one of them before starting, considering that the first one is not as efficient as the second one, so if the fast one fails, you better go to the advanced one.
In the case of the more advanced mode, you will see that several parameters appear that we can modify. However, our recommendation in such cases is that you do not touch anything at all unless you know about what you're doing. Otherwise, you could seriously compromise the recovery of those specific contents, and precisely that goes against the main objective of this software.
If there are miniatures of the files that can be recovered, PC File Inspector Recovery will allow you to see them confirm that they are exactly the ones you are interested in and not recover files that you don't really need. Especially when we have generic names, as sometimes happens, this function can be of enormous value thinking about saving a good amount of time, of course.
An issue that for some users might not be more than a detail, but we are sure that for others it will absolutely change the conception around this program, has to do with the fact that when recovering files, it recovers them with their original dates and times, so it does not produce any change on them. Let it be clear, it does not recover copies of the files, but it returns those files that you thought were lost.
What about the interface of the program? Really weak, not in terms of the ease with which we can find the available functions, but considering that some windows appear that provide absolutely no solution, or that it is too obvious that its developers have not worked on its visual aspect for a long time. In any case, several similar applications are much nicer, and there is no doubt about that.
As for the aspects that we liked the least of PC File Inspector Recovery, we have to mention that it has few advanced options in the first instance, but we would not demand much more. However, its exhaustive scanning mode is very slow, and it can be impossible to wait for it for so long.
On the positive side, there is no doubt that it offers a fast scanning system that takes very little waiting, or the fact that it is elementary to use since the options available are few and easily visible.
In summary, we can say that PC File Inspector Recovery is an excellent option for recovering files that have been deleted from our Windows operating system, although perhaps not the first one we would recommend. Recuva is almost the main reference within this segment, standing out from PC File Inspector Recovery for the greater speed and efficiency when recovering files, of course.
