Can you recommend Selkie Rescue Data Recovery??

<< < (3/6) > >>

Hi Selkie,

Welcome to Donationcoder! Thanks for stopping by and posting about your product - it does sound quite a bit different from the other products discussed in this thread so far... Worth a look!

Nice to see yet a software developer here :)

So, what kind of recovery does selkie do? All the automated file-share etc. is very nice, but does it just mount a NTFS partition and copy files, or can it do recovery of corrupted volumes etc.?

Heh, heh... Powell River, eh? We're practically neighbours, Selkie  :-*

Well thanks for being neighbourly  :D

Selkie is not limited to 'NTFS volumes' it (or SHE) supports FAT32 and earlier FAT file systems and most Linux and Unix partitions.

We've also set it up so that Selkie only deals with the data files in 'read only' form so she can't do any damage while she's rescuing your stuff.

On the downside, we can't do anything with corrupted volumes - this is because dealing with corrupted file systems requires that the end user be fairly technically-savvy, and we're actually trying to go for the typical computer or laptop user in a 'do-it-yourself' format.

We've had the occasional customer ask about corrupted or deleted files and we usually send them to their local technician, since what we've seen out there requires some technical know-how so that they don't fry their system even worse than it was when they began to try to 'fix' it.

And Curt, we've got a way you can get around the time limit for a few more hours (it's very sneaky!). Try this: -Selkie (September 27, 2007, 05:22 PM)

Welcome at DC, Selkie-man!

The "way" was too sneaky for me, I am afraid. After several 're-tryings' it is still standing on $99.99
