You are required to go through a quick and surprise-free installation process, and after you wrap it up, you are met with a simple and intuitive interface. It is comprised of a menu bar, a few buttons and a pane which displays all detected partitions. It is suitable to all types of users, regardless of their previous experience with the IT world. Moreover, it is built as a wizard, thus reinforcing the last statement made.
Retrieval from pen drives and the HDD
By using Office Regenerator, you make it possible to retrieve Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from any partition on your hard drive, as well as removable storage devices, such as USB flash drives or SD cards. Aside from that, you should know it is possible to recover files that have been deleted, overwritten and even the ones that are corrupted.
Set size limit and view the remaining time
You can set the size limit of all items to be recovered, the default one being 15MB. This means that all files larger than this value are not going to be processed. Furthermore, you should know that the smaller the size limit, the speed of the entire operation will improve.
The process uses low amounts of CPU and memory, yet it does put a strain on the system’s performance, as the total utilization across all physical drives is quite high. Nevertheless, you can view the time remaining, as well as the elapsed one in the main window, total number of fragments found and the total scanned size.
To conclude, Office Regenerator is a simple, yet useful piece of software, when it comes to recovering spreadsheets, text documents and presentations. The response time is fairly good, the interface is accessible to all user categories and we did not detect errors or crashes in our tests. Nonetheless, you should know that all retrieved items cannot be saved in the demo version.
