  1. Actually, the software worked for me – but all I wanted was a 1 year license. They never tell you that it is set up as a recurring payment and you’ll be charged a year later. I’ve reported them to Paypal.

  2. hi praven, im recovering the files from my wd elements 2tb because suddely it wasnt recognised by my desktop anymore and all my work was suddenly gone or not recognised now im having more than 3tb i had to buy another disk because the 2 tb replacement isnt enough and the jpegs for example that were 4 mb got enormous like 25 mb and the dng 125 mb .. is tis normal?

    • No data recovery software will increase you actual file size. Probably you are seeing some other file. Because data recovery software will recover all files hidden from memory clusters. It even recovers old files, you might forgot about those files.
