"Are there any upgrades planned in the near future? This has always been the best recovery program around. Recently I tried a couple of demo programs and they recovered many more erased pictures. One was called Digital Photo Recovery by The Undelete Co. I would like to stay with your software. Thanks. "

"Your software really is top notch. It found files that our local computer geeks store could not find after three days of running every files search program they had."
