HARD AND SOFT PRODUCT REVIEW
Reasonable price for image data recovery software
AlphaOmega Soft has released FinalData Photo Retriever (part of the FinalData series), which recovers only image data. By limiting data recovery to image data, AlphaOmega Soft can offer Photo Retriever to customers for a reasonable price.
FinalData Photo Retriever
FinalData Photo Retriever is recovery software that can recover image data lost by disk crash, format, overwriting of file name, etc. It can recover not only the image data saved in your PC's hard drive, but also the image data saved in your digital camera (by connecting the PC and digital camera with a USB cable).
Check the lost image before recovery by using the "viewer function" to see the original picture or by using "thumbnail display" to show the image in a smaller size.
Photo Retriever is compatible with floppy disks, magneto-optical drives, SmartMedia«, CompactFlash«, and Memory Stick«. The recoverable files are JPEG, TIFF, and BMP,[▀I thought there were more recoverable files, but only JPEG, TIFF, BMP, and PSD are displayed automatically upon recovery.] and Photo Retriever is compatible with FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS file systems. You need another drive.[▀from the Photo Retriever box: In addition to the location on the hard drive (drive letter) where Photo Retriever is installed, Photo Retriever requires a separate writable drive letter, such as a floppy drive, Zip« drive, CD-RW (with CD-RW media only), another hard disk drive, or another drive letter on the same hard disk drive, in order to have a location to temporarily place files that you wish to recover. CD-ROM and CD-R drives are not writable and therefore cannot be used.]

Recover lost image data for digital cameras with FinalData Photo Retriever
Usually, image data deleted from the recycle bin or lost by formatting the disk cannot be recovered-but Photo Retriever software can recover it.
Image data deleted from digital cameras (SmartMedia« or CompactFlash«) can be recovered by connecting to a PC with a USB or PC card adapter. The recovery procedure is simple: You select the drive or media where your lost image data was saved, then the software scans and displays the data. You just select the data you want to recover and click on the recovery button.
