Seagate Introduces New Data Recovery Software Solution as a Cost Effective Alternative to In-Lab Logical Recoveries

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. - Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX) is pleased to announce the launch of its innovative do-it-yourself data recovery software. File Recovery for Windows is an advanced, easy to use application which recovers all file types including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook PSTs, databases, AutoCAD, Microsoft SQL as well as all popular photo formats. The software can also recover music and movie files such as MPEG, AVI, and MP3 files. File Recovery for Windows supports all FAT12/16/32 and NTFS file systems running Microsoft Windows, even if partitions are formatted, damaged or deleted.

File Recovery for Windows has been designed as an efficient, low-cost solution for logical data recovery situations if files are lost due to a virus, malicious hack attack or an operating system crash, in which a disc drive has not experienced physical damage. This inexpensive software solution is able to recover files from any brand of disc drive.

Clients are able to download the solution for free from Seagate’s web site and preview their disc and file content in a simple hexadecimal viewer telling them if a successful recovery is possible. The risk in the purchase decision has been removed, and users know in advance exactly which files can be recovered before they purchase the software.

“I called a handful of drive recovery services and was given estimates ranging from $700 to $8,000 to restore my data with a wait of at least four days,” commented Kevin Halladay, I.T. manager of the Sundance Ski Resort in Utah. “I called Seagate Recovery Services about sending the drive in for recovery, and their client service representative suggested that Seagate’s D.I.Y. software was the ideal solution for my data loss situation. I downloaded the software and recovered all of my data, and Seagate saved me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. The software is easy to use, very intuitive and provided a full recovery for a fraction of the cost of an in-lab solution. The product is a true bargain.”
