There have been some big league testimonials over the past few weeks. Here's one from Derek Story from his The Digital Story blog: "My advice is this: even if you're not ready to pay for PhotoRescue now, download the demo today and have it on your hard drive. That way, if you need it, and don't have Internet handy, you can backup the contents of your memory card immediately, then restore the pictures once you have a chance to go online and pay the $29 registration.
"PhotoRescue works for both Mac and Windows. The Mac version is Universal Binary, and is quite speedy on an Intel Mac. In just minutes, I successfully recovered nearly 2GBs of photos from a formatted SD card that was full of images from my Canon SD700. There are also other recovery applications available that you might want to look in to. The bottom line, however, is to be prepared for an accidental erasure, so you don't lose valuable pictures."
And here's one from The Luminous Landscape, in Michael Reichmann's story of his Antarctica 2007 adventure: "One of the worst things that can happen on a shoot is to find oneself with a corrupted or accidentally erased memory card. I'll tell my own anecdote in a moment, but first I should mention that when you have 50 photographers working together for three weeks, and the giggage mounts up, accidents and misadventures are bound to happen.
"We had at least a half dozen instances of people who had corrupted memory cards, orwho needed to recover files from cards once they had been reformatted. Fortunately a couple of people had a program on their laptops called PhotoRescue, which in every instance was able to save the day.
"Other data recovery programs, such as those now provided free by card makers such as Sandisk and Lexar just didn't cut it. Sometimes a few files could be recovered, but not always, and not all files. With PhotoRescue a complete recovery was possible almost every time. As soon as I got home I downloaded a copy it's available for both Windows and Mac OSX. Don't leave home without it."
