Pricing and Licensing

Sadly, this software only comes with the PC version. This means if you are a Mac user, we are so sorry to tell this to you but you might want to look for something else rather than this.

You can actually download this software and then perform scans as much as you want for free. But if you wish to recover everything that you have discovered that was lost, you will need to purchase a license from them. They have three different licensing options with different features and price points.

  • Standard package plan.

This one performs basic recovery, the license that you will purchase will be good enough for two computers. It will cost you $1.94 per month for a max of 3 years. Alternatively, you can opt for a one-off payment of $69.95 for the lifetime plan.

  • Professional Version.

This one performs advanced recovery. It comes with a number of advanced features and the license can be used by a max of 2 computers. The lifetime plans goes for $2.78 per month for a max of 3 years. Alternatively, one can opt for a one-time payment of $99.95 for the entire package.

  • Technician Version.

This is, in my opinion, the best package plan. It comes with advanced data recovery features. The license is for commercial use on multiple computers. The package is charged at $9.72/month for max of 3 years. One can also choose to make a payment of $349.95 billed as a one-off payment.

No budget? Check the free options.


Apparently, this one has the same functions and features as the other data recovery software out there, it's just that there are some things that are done better using this software.

It literally gets the job done if you are talking about recovering a file that you have just lost. However, there will always be concerns and some little bits of points to ponder on.

The ability of this software to recover data that comes from the deleted partitions are a little bit questionable.

When it comes to lost partitions, it runs a little bit slower compared to the others, but if you were to look for other sources or partitions, then it comes out fast. Also, Recovery My Files do not offer system startup discs that are for non-booting machines, which is a little bit of lack of this software.

As we have just said, this one is very effective and efficient at the same time. It is fully capable of digging out thousands of deleted files, then after digging them all up, the ability of it to recover them is also found here.

If you really want to have all of those files that you have lost, which means having a full deep scan, it will take you some time, but there are just some things in life that are worth the wait, and this process is one of them.

In fact, we have tried to recover some files that we have purposely lost, and amazingly, this software was able to detect everything that was lost and then recover them afterward.

Not just that, it never had a single issue when we were on the process of recovering them, so it is such a huge relief.

GetData Recover My Files Performance Testing

In order to ascertain the claims of data recovery and excellent performance, we undertook a number of test on this software. For the first test, we used an old internal hard drive that actually crashed with some data inside.

For the second test, we wanted to evaluate the tool’s scanning and recovery capacity. Therefore we used a different hard drive.

We chose on a particular partition, filled it up with data then deleted it. For this test we basically wanted to see if we could recover the files and the deleted partition.

For the third test, we wanted to see how this tool performs when recovering data from external storage devices. As such, we attached a USB storage device, an external hard drive, and a DVD drive.

The test results were very exciting and altogether surprising. For the first test, we managed to recover all the files that were originally in the hard drive that malfunctioned. So, for that the performance index was 100%.

For the second test the deleted disk partition was recovered fully. However, we were only able to recover 95% of the files that were originally in the partition.

We also noted that quick scan lasted 2 minutes, much quicker than is the case with most leading recovery software.

Deep scan lasted for 1 hour, which is fantastic given that most leading recovery tools take slightly longer. Needless to say, executing both scan operations much longer.

We also noted that recovering files from the external drives and the other appended devices was smooth. In fact, we managed to recover all the files that were deleted from all the external drives.

Here are some additional features of this software:

  • Burn data to the disks. If you are a user that is having a little bit of free space, then you might want to check out this feature. This is something that people are not looking up to nowadays, but the option to burn the recovered files that you have in your CD or DVD is such a huge relief.
  • Batch File Recovery. This is a feature that will allow you to recover lots of files at once. You do not have to click them one by one, you can just click multiple files and it will completely recover it. It will definitely save you a huge amount of time instead of determining them one-by-one.
  • File Previews. Sometimes, you are not clearly sure of the things that you have discovered that were previously deleted and gone.

Chances are, after recovering them, these were not the files that you were expecting to receive, and that's a little bit of bad. With this feature, you will be able to know the type of file you are recovering.

It will let you see portions of different recoverable files. If you are fond of recovering photos that you have just lost, especially those that are very important ones, then this feature is very helpful for you.

Updates. GetData will provide you updates regarding Recovery My Files. With this feature, you will not feel lost while using this software.

You will be utmostly updated of the things that are added in this software and you will be able to utilize it immediately.

In terms of the customer support of this software, only a word would define it, excellent. Yes, it is. It gives out the users a good amount of knowledge regarding the product, so there would be fewer questions and clarifications along the way.

But don't let it have you troubled, if you wish to ask them something, they will respond to you too! But going back, the site that they have for their support has a quick start guide, PDF guide,and video guides.

There are different modules for you to learn and read on in order to understand how the software works. There are how-to guides, FAQs and troubleshooting steps.

Their materials are very detailed too and well explained so that users will really understand what GetData has been speaking and what the users have been reading.

You can also contact them via email if you prefer to talk to GetData. They have a telephone line which you can only call during business hours.

If talking is not a thing to you, they have a live chat feature too, which where you could get responses real time. The live chat feature is also only available during business hours.

Talking about sending emails to them, the amount of time that it would send them to reply to your queries is also quick too, they would probably respond to your several emails about certain questions in less than 24 hours. Those things in software will really change and step up their game.


If you want a data recovery software that is feature packed and that can be used for home as well as commercial recoveries, I strongly recommend GetData Recover My Files.
