File Recover Plus – Main Features
The program is relatively small in size – just around 5 megabytes (executable, its uninstaller, and two support modules).
The program has a user-friendly interface and modern design, especially when it comes to the settings. The developers have cleverly designed opt-out boxes from which the user can choose from a setting or group of general settings summarized in one preference:
The program also has an option to modify smart scan settings, meaning that you can select the types of files to recover.
When we did a system resources test, we have established that the program is not so demanding, even while you are performing a recovery operation:
Furthermore, the program recognizes the health of the scanned files ready for restoration, separating them with green (being the best condition), orange and red (being the worst), according to how good it is. The program can also group the recovered files after the scanning operation has been completed – first green, then orange and finally red. It also can group the files based on their type:
Regarding file recovery, we have deleted an archive only to scan it with the smart scanning feature of the program and establish that it was in perfect health:
However, bear in mind that when it comes to restoring deleted files it really depends on when they have been deleted and if the hard drive has been wiped or not.
Other features of the software include the ability to customize its deep scanning level, which is interesting. The program also has an option for drive cleaning and an advanced filter, similar to the best file recovery programs.
The program has several beneficial features for the user:
- The recently restored files have excellent quality.
- It provides advanced information about how many files were recovered and their file type.
- Smartly designed settings to tamper with.
- It provides deep scan and smart scan options.
- Small in size and light on system resources.
There could have been some improvements:
- The ability to use different scanning methods which may result in improved effectiveness.
- Free evaluation of file restoration for users who haven’t bought the software.
- On-demand scan of a specific folder which will save the user some time.
- A bit faster scanning.
