Best Data Recovery Programs For Windows and Macs Roundup - Recover deleted and corrupted files, pictures, emails, documents, music, databases, passwords, and even reformatted hard drives.

Just say, "No", to data loss. It's time to recover your data.

It's happened to all of us, you're working away, getting your work done, minding your own business and, "Wham!" the unthinkable happens. Your power goes out, your hard drive crashes, your important files get deleted, or some other whammy hits your computer, iPod, MP3 player, camera, or phone and your files are gone!

Upsetting as these things are, you have to eventually decide what to do about it. Rather than redoing or recreating all your lost work and files (if such a thing is even possible), wouldn't it be nice if there was a way to actually recover the files that were lost -- some never to be seen again?

To assist people who have had the whammy put on them and that have lost data, we decided to compile a list of the best software programs that have been designed to get you out of trouble, and to put your files back where they belong. Many of these recovery software companies will let you download a free demo copy of their program, which when run will give you an indication of the files that can be recovered. If you like the program you can buy it, register the program, and recover your data.

We have listed the programs by the type of data/files they can recover and have listed them by category in the indexes and tables below. The programs have different recovery abilities and of course have different prices. So click on the provided program links to get a list of all their detailed features.

Download the programs and try before you buy, so you know the program will recover your missing data. If you do buy something that doesn't ultimately work, many of the programs have a money back guarantee.

Best Specialized Data Recovery Programs

The next group of recovery programs are specialized to do a certain type of recovery action e.g. recover passwords, recover picture files, recover corrupted Microsoft Office files, recover Outlook and Outlook Express files, etc.
Often they are more reasonably priced than a general recovery program, or they are just better at the one recovery operation they have been designed to do. Compare the general recovery program's features to the specialized program's features to see which program will benefit you the most. And don't forget the try before you buy option that most of these downloadable programs have.
