Documents Recover-Center is an attractive-looking data-recovery tool that efficiently restores your lost, deleted, or corrupted documents. Specifically aimed at recovering text-based files, it supports nearly all Office files (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, RTF, etc.) and many others, such as XML, TXT, WordPerfect, PDF, HTML, or LIT (Microsoft’s e-books). Its wizard-like interface makes it suitable for all types of users.
One of the things that grab your attention right away is the fact that the program does work! Unlike many other similar tools that will merely scan your drives and present you with the list of files that the program claims to be capable of restoring, Documents Recover-Center offers you a fully-functional unregistered version that surprisingly does what it promises. Besides, to make it accessible for both the novice and the more experienced user, it will guide you through the whole process using a simple and well-organized wizard. The tile types supported by the program will appear neatly classified in groups (Internet-specific file formats, document files, Microsoft files, etc.), which you can check or uncheck at will. It can scan and analyze all types of drives, from your system’s hard disks drives to any external USB disk or flash memory.
After thoroughly scanning the selected drive(s), the recovery process itself is fast and efficient. The program uses a color code that will tell you which files are recoverable, which will require some extra effort, and which are simply irrecoverable. The restored files are usually placed in a different drive (of your choice) to ensure a cleaner environment for your valuable data.
All in all, Documents Recover-Center is a flexible and well-designed tool that guarantees a successful document recovery even after formatting the drive in question.
