    Good day, I just read this post and based on your description it can do more than only recover files. and are all of those features that you mentioned included in the free version? Because we all know that every recovery tool can restore deleted files no doubt about it, but the added features are great, because I am using Acethinker Disk Recovery and its great for a free version because the premium features are accessible over the free version. Hope you can answer my question. Thanks in advace.

  10. Acethinker Disk Recovery is not free. If it is, please share its download link.
