Pros / Amigabit offers a shortcut mode for retrieving specific file types.

Cons / You need to do some searching to find the preview function.

 Verdict / Amigabit recovered over 95% of deleted files in all but one case, and it offers a simple interface and business features, making it a good choice for small offices.

Amigabit’s disk recovery software consistently performed well in recovering deleted files in our tests. It offers several ways to recover lost data, including selecting the file types, and has functions suited for businesses. Overall, it’s a solid program worth considering.

We tested recovering deleted files in multiple formats (images, documents, video and audio) by deleting them fully, such as from the recycle bin, and by reformatting the hard drive. While this hard drive recovery software did not earn a perfect score on any account, it nonetheless put in an impressive showing. It recovered 99% of image files and 98% of audio and video files whether manually deleted or lost in reformatting. It fell short on documents, still achieving an impressive 95% recovery rate for deleted files but only 85% on reformatted files. If you work primarily with documents, you may want to consider a different disk recovery software application, but, otherwise, this is an excellent program.

This hard drive recovery software offers you three options for recovering files as soon as you start the program: recover deleted files, recover reformatted files or recover raw data. Raw data is especially useful when a disk is damaged, but we also found we got the best recovery results using the raw data option, and it was not significantly longer than the other processes.

It offers a fast recovery mode, but if that does not work, you can return to the beginning and scan again in a deeper mode. You can pause scanning if necessary. Once it completes the scan, it displays the results in a file tree, or you can organize results by file type or file paths. It’s easy to export the search results to recover later. It has a preview function, but it took some searching to find it.

Amigabit’s Enterprise version offers useful features, including a multiple-use license so that you can install it on any computer in the office. It works with RAID systems, so you can use it on your server. It also offers free lifetime updates.

Summary

Amigabit’s disk recovery software offers some excellent features for business and multiple ways to recover deleted files. We found the raw data recovery option to be the most effective, but even then, it did not recover all our lost files. Nonetheless, with an over 95% success rate in all but one case, it’s solid software for a small business.
