R-Studio is an entire family of data recovery and undelete utilities which will work on both local disks and remote computers over networks. The software will work even if the hard disk's partition structure is damaged.

I installed and opened the R-Studio demo version. The user interface is clean and uncluttered. After clicking "open drive files", R-Studio makes a listing and displays to you all files currently resident on your hard disk -- the files that have been deleted are marked with a red "X". If you select a deleted file and click on "restore", another screen appears (the "recover" dialog window), you select your desired options and where you want to send the file and click "ok".

Well, it's not quite that easy. You must read the information included with the software (the help file actually IS helpful, unlike many I've read). R-Studio is a much more economical solution to data retrieval than those "experts", and fairly easy to navigate.

If you need to retrieve data that's been deleted off your hard disk but can't afford a data recovery and retrieval technician's price, give R-Studio a try. The demo version is functional, but limits the size of the file that can be retrieved to 64 kb.

User Friendly
