DiskDigger is a great, free file-recovery software application.
- Free, easy to use
- If the type of file you're looking to recover using a sector scan isn't in DiskDigger's list the program won't find it
DiskDigger is a free, easy-to-use recovery program that in many cases works as well as EasyRecovery Professional, Active@ File Recovery, etc. If you need to recover data, your mouse should run, not walk, to the download link. It's hard to believe that it's free.
DiskDigger goes well beyond the usual undelete utility that's offered gratis as a leader product, although it does that. It will also dig beneath the file system to recover data on a sector-by-sector basis from hard drives, thumb drives, and so on. (Think of sectors as little boxes containing data that are arranged in tracks/circles on your hard drive.)
DiskDigger couldn't be easier to use. Select a drive, select the types of files to be recovered (jpeg, mp3, documents, etc) then click next. We actually had a brand new partition-trashed hard drive on hand to test DiskDigger with. To be honest, we weren't expecting a free program to recognise the hard drive, let alone recover data from it. It found files — and recovered them.
Our only complaint with DiskDigger is that if the type of file you're looking to recover using a sector scan (it will undelete any file type) isn't in the DiskDigger's list, it won't find it. Common types that are missing are Outlook personal folders and text files. There should be a "*.*" option or the ability to define file types. Still, many common file types are there and that should cover the majority of home users.
New for DiskDigger 0.8.1 is the ability to search ISO disk images for missing or existing files. You may now also limit a search to a logical drive (some disks are partitioned into multiple logical drives: C:, D:, E:, etc) instead scanning the entire physical drive.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
