Free data recovery tool from Pandora reaches record download levels

Pandora : 30 June, 2009  (New Product)
Software for recovering lost data off FAT or NTFS devices continues to get better with increased list of recoverable files
Free data recovery tool from Pandora reaches record download levels
The incidents are numerous, unavoidable and too often when data is lost and not retrieving that data is not an option. PC users around the globe will attest to the fact that an easy-to-use data and file recovery program is essential to have in your arsenal of utilities.

That's where Pandora Recovery has come in handy for more than half a million people. The free data recovery tool from Pandora not only recently passed the 500,000 download mark on cNet's download.com, but it is consistently featured in the weekly Top 10 most downloaded System Utilities list, and recently broke into the Top 25 most downloaded System Utilities of all time!

'Computers are a big part of everyday life. Between business and pleasure, we live an increasingly digital lifestyle,' says Pandora Corp. co-founder, Manuel Coats. 'That causes mistakes to be more damaging when they happen... and, as everyone can attest to, they certainly do happen.'

Pandora Recovery is able to recover deleted and/or lost data from both NTFS and FAT formatted drives. It scans the requested drive and builds an index of both existing and deleted files and directories. Users then have full control over which files to recover and what destination to recover them to. In addition, users have the ability to preview deleted files of certain types (images and text files) without performing the full recovery.

A full list of Pandora Recovery 2.1.1 features can be found on the PandoraRecovery web site.

'We wanted to create a program that would recover as much as possible for our users,' says Manuel Coats. 'At the same time, we wanted the program to be incredibly easy to use for the average non-technical computer users who need a fast and efficient recovery.'

And they have succeeded. A survey of users after initial use found that 86% would definitely continue to use the program and recommend it to others. Coats points out that those numbers, for a free online software product, are staggering.

Pandora Recovery is also available on a removable storage unit (USB jump drive). Pandora Mobile Recovery requires no installation and greatly increases the data recovery success by running the program from and recovering the deleted data to the Pandora Mobile Recovery unit. Utilizing the Mobile version omits the chance of data being further corrupted or written-over during an installation process.

'Ever since the release of Pandora Recovery in 2007, we've received rave reviews from users saying how our product has recovered years of data thought lost and gone forever due an accidental delete or drive format,' says Chief Software Evangelist, Chris Graham. 'We've even had people claim that we saved their jobs.'

Graham says positive feedback like that keeps his team working hard to ensure Pandora Recovery is the strongest tool available to those in need of data recovery. The next step for the team is incorporating the most requested feature: permanent deletion of selected files.

And it certainly won't end there. Manuel Coats says the program will continue to evolve and grow just as the world's dependency on electronic data does.

'We're going to keep working on it and expanding the list of potentially recoverable files and data,' says Coats. 'We'd also like to help people recover deleted emails - that's on the list for sure.'

Most likely, it will not be a program you use daily... but when you need it, you need it - and efficient and effective programs like Pandora Recovery can really save you a lot of stress and headaches in your PC usage. While the basic software is still free to everyone, for just a little more than the price of an empty USB flash drive, you can buy the Pandora Mobile Recovery, which also comes with a demo version of the company's signature monitoring software, PC Pandora (with a $20 coupon to purchase).

System Requirements: Pandora Recovery requires Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server or Windows Vista for installation. Pandora Recovery recovers deleted data from NTFS and FAT formatted drives. There are no plans at this time to create a version compatible with the Mac, Linux, or any other non-Microsoft Operating System.
