Dear Chyke,

We understand your situation that you are unable to recover specific files.

Our team has sent you an email to know the file types that you wish to recover. Please reply to our email and we will guide you further to recover the selective file types.

Hi Team
I've downloaded the software and 12 hours into recovery with 8 hours to go. I've not paid yet. Presumably I'll be asked to pay if I want the results.
Would I get a different result if I paid for it up front, and would I have been given different software
Kind Regards, Rob

Hi Team,

I have purchased a premium software as i need to fix any recovered damaged files. however i am not able to find the partition, the partition was labled as A drive.
My HDD is of 2 TB and it was equally partitioned into 2 half. One of which was A drive which had all the necessary data, I need the data from that A drive.

On doing extensive search, reaching to a specific percent in extensive search ( 40%) the software freezes and shuts down, I believe it is because of lot of partitions are retrieved from past which i dont even need, neither can i Identify these partitions.

I just need A drive which is around 929 GB, but software is not helping in that search.



Hi Kalpesh,

We understand the inconvenience caused to you.

Please let us know whether it is internal drive or external drive.

Also recommend you to perform "Selective Recovery" in software after selecting required file types from "Advance Setting" icon in software.

Then perform "Can't find drive" process in software.

Please reply to our support team email for further assistance.
