The data recovery software market is plagued with shady products from developers who prey on desperate users who have lost important files and would try anything to get them back without spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars on professional data recovery services.
At Pandora Data Recovery Mentor, our mission is to objectively evaluate available data recovery software products to help users achieve the data recovery outcomes possible, instead of wasting money and time on software that doesn’t deliver on its promises. You can read our comprehensive reviews on our blog.

- Consistency: The review scores we give to data recovery software can be compared with one another because they’re based on a consistent set of review criteria. Read more about how we test software here.
