Geek Software of the Week: Active@ File Recovery!

Active@ File RecoveryThis one saved me from losing data on an external USB drive I was using for backups! Awesome software… free to try on a limited demo, but only $29.95 for a personal license, if you, like me, have a big drive recovery to do!

Active@ File Recovery

Efficient & easy to use data recovery tool for deleted, damaged or lost files, even if your PC doesn’t boot

Active@ File Recovery for Windows provides the ability to effectively detect and recover files and disks lost due to accidental deletion, disk formatting, virus and other reasons.

Active@ File Recovery Professional package also includes integrated Disk Editor (HexViewer; a utility for low-level data inspection), Active@ Partition Recovery (a tool used to recover deleted or damaged volumes), and Active@ File Organizer (a utility to organize/rename files after a catastrophic data loss).

Active@ File Recovery Enterprise extends the Professional package with Active@ Boot Disk Lite: an ISO image that you can use to create a bootable CD/DVD or USB with a lightweight version of Windows 7™ running in RAM (WinPE 3.1). It is the only way to recover your data when your system is not bootable and you cannot attach the corrupted Hard Disk Drive to another machine.

When to use it:

  • Recover deleted files after Recycle Bin has been emptied, or files were deleted while bypassing the Recycle Bin (ex. large files)
  • Recover files lost due to accidental disk formatting, damage by virus attack, malicious program, or a power failure
  • Recover photos & pictures deleted from a USB Flash, or images lost after formatting a Memory Card (SD, CompactFlash)
  • Data recovery when partition or volume is deleted, damaged or formatted, or disk has bad sectors


  • After reading your article I feel relax, great post for deleted data recovery. Do you have trial version to check the performance of your tool. By empowering your software, can I retrieve deleted data from external hard drive?

  • The trial version can recover a small file… about 65k. The purchased version will recover an unlimited size and number of files. It works on external drives as well.
