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.

Recuva didn't find a single file in my case. However, PC Inspector File Recovery seemed to identify around 45,000 deleted files that it could recover. It is true that PC Inspector File Recovery takes days to run, but what's the point of a file recovery product that recovers nothing?
