Softpedia Editor's Review for iCare Format Recovery
Recover files from formatted hard drive, formatted card, formatted USB drives
Written by Bogdan Popa on March 9th, 2012
iCare Format Recovery is a very fast data recovery software utility that's able to work with both fixed drives and removable devices.
One of the best things about iCare Format Recovery is that it's very easy to use and although data recovery tools aren't usually addressed to beginners, this one is a pretty good choice.
The interface is simple and prompts users to pick the drives they want to scan, with the recovery screen also providing a fast way to choose the files to be processed.
Plus, not only that it shows the disk content to be recovered, but iCare Format Recovery also packs a preview tool that lets you take a glimpse into the selected files. Still, in case you're trying to get back some documents, you need Microsoft Word to preview these files.
Another useful feature is the file searching utility that gives you the power to quickly find a file to recover in case the amount of data displayed at the end of the scan is very large.
As we said in the introduction, iCare Format Recovery works very fast and it takes just a few seconds to scan the drive for files to be recovered. Plus, it doesn't affect system performance and everything works like a charm on all Windows versions, without even asking for administrator privileges on Windows 7.
Overall, iCare Format Recovery is yet another data recovery software that tries to attract both beginners and more experienced users with an intuitive and user friendly interface.
