about PC INSPECTOR File Recovery Mar 2014

Crashes with an access violation while enumerating the system's disks. Meaning that I can't even get to the first step of using the program: selecting which drive it's supposed to work on. Pretty poor quality this one.

about PC INSPECTOR File Recovery Jun 2011

From PC World review: "Alas, PC Inspector File Recovery was clueless when it came to a relatively simple test: recovering data from an NTFS drive that still contained data, but whose partition and file tables had been overwritten." Before I had read the review, PC Inspector File Recovery showed it would take DAYS just to scan my drive to see the files available to recover. Recuva does the scan in hours, I was able to recover most of my files, and it is also free.
