"Good but not a complete utility"4.0 starson by yasinghMD
Pros: Simple, small, works off the boot CD, and restores deleted partitions
Cons: Does not have all the functions that the name suggests
Summary: If I remember, this utility cannot resize or format partitions. Partition magic is the utility of choice for all such functions. Acronis recovered one (containing family videos) of the two partitions that were deleted by mistake. This alone made it worth its price.
In contrast, Patition magic (version 8) reported no recoverable partitions.Updated
This product is not listed at Cnet yet, so I am adding my comment here. I give it a perfect 10 as I did for Version 8. Version 10 is only required for SATA drives. It cannot read images created with Version 8. So do not throw away the Version 8 disk. I use this program only from the boot CD. I have never encountered any problems this way.
