PCI File Recoveryeeaahoooooo

What happens when all that stuff in your 'my documents' folder just disappears? well, you sweat, your pupils dilate, heart beat quickens, blood vessels thin, you have difficulty breathing, peristalstic movements of the oesophagus. This is the moment when, like King Lear, you stand in the middle of the room and shout "Oh! Let me not be mad". Basically you would happily accept a one-on-one with a grizzly, if that could get you the key to your lost data.

So what next? You search for data recovery tools…$99, $68, "Click here to download trial version" is all that you come across. TaDaaaaa.. there is a blinding flash of lightning and amidst the mist appears Batman…er…PCI file recovery. Well, apart from its super-heroic, almost-divine ability to recover lost files, the best thing is that it comes FREE. Yup, you heard me right, its that four letter word which we would kill to hear. And unlike most free things in life, this thing actually works.

It works on FAT and NTFS systems (also worked with a 256 MB USB Flash Drive). It allows you to browse a list of recoverable files and folders and has an option that supports wildcards (which considering the fact that it is FREE, didnt work…but c'mon!).

Like all things bright and beautiful, it has blemishes too. The interface is a tad bit confusing and takes time getting used to (refer to first paragraph for the ambient environ during such a situation, looking around for that "save as…" option would certainly not help knocking that grizzly out). It is not always able to recover file names and comes with spartan help documentation!!

But hey, Batman saved you…
