PHOTORECOVERY Professional is a lightweight piece of software designed to help you recover photos, videos and other multimedia files that you accidentally deleted from your local or external drives.
Rugged looks, but intuitive navigation and functionality
The application comes with an outdated UI, but that is user-friendly and unlikely to give you any troubles. The interface is designed as a wizard that can guide you through the 4-step process. Once you select the type of file and camera manufacturer, you can specify the volume, review your selection and set the destination folder.
The recovery can take several minutes, depending on the size of the volume you stored the multimedia files. You will be glad to learn that the utility supports HD and RAW images and videos and works with a plethora of cameras. In fact, the app is designed to work with a plethora of manufacturers, including Canon, Sigma, Nikon, Kodak, Panasonic, Casio, Samsung, Fuji, Pentax or Sony, just to name a few.
Includes tools for performance testing and benchmarking
A noteworthy feature of the application is the Digital Media Doctor, a set of utensils that allow you to make various performance tests on the digital memory cards of your camera. Therefore, you can perform sequential, random and butterfly diagnostics and benchmarks tests to get a general idea about when it is time to replace your memory cards.
The Digital Media Doctor is one of the extra features the Professional version includes compared to PHOTORECOVERY Standard. The other notable differences between the two editions are that the Professional is compatible with more camera formats, point-and-shoot as well as digital backs models. In addition, it allows you to make backups, wipe, format and restore memory cards.
An app that can help you recover your photos
All in all, if you are having troubles recovering your photo memories from your digital camera because you delete or formatted the storage media, then perhaps PHOTORECOVERY Professional could lend you a hand.
