Five big stars *****

We are an IT consultant outfit in Westchester, NY. Recently, we had a PC with a (40GB) hard drive going bad. It was still up and running, but it was making clicking noises on and off. We connected a new 80GB HDD as secondary to the Primary HD for cloning. We initially tried to clone it with Norton Ghost but it kept on "crashing" during the cloning process. Next, we tried it with HD Clone Pro. It was very slow and it was not able to resize the new hard drive. After no success, we tried Total Backup Recovery. We installed it and cloned the drive with the resize HDD enabled. We are VERY HAPPY to say that it did the job for us. We will definitely recommend to all our customers because it's inexpensive and it does the job as advertised. Five big stars ***** Thank you.

Your Program Recovered 5 Years Of Effort

One day I was working on a program which I had been writing on for the last 5 years, when all of a sudden my computer got a virus that completely erased my personal documents, including the program I had been writing. I was in a panic until I remembered I have installed Farstone's Total Backup Recovery. So I opened TBR and it successfully recovered everything. Thank you Farstone, your program recovered 5 years of effort.

Excellent product

Everything went perfectly. I made my first back up and restore on 10/02/10 - excellent product. Many thanks!

Great tool!

I have been a customer since I received a demo of RestoreIT on one of my graphic card's companion CDs. When TotalRecovery Pro came out, I upgraded in order to back up my Vista Business OS installation. So, the first thing I did was create a fresh complete backup image (password protected) -with just the needed drivers and the available OS updates to date- and save it into a bootable DVD (I love this option) with the universal feature on, of course. A couple of weeks after doing that, and as one of my SATA HDs was faulty -didn't know at that time I must admit- my whole system went "no-no", so I had to recover it from scratch. I reformatted my HD, just in case, then inserted the bootable DVD with the complete system image and finally restarted the computer. After TR Pro was loaded into memory, and before the restoration procedure started, I was prompted for my password. So, I entered the password and ... what? wrong password ... noooo! Please tell me this is a joke, where's the camera? Tried again and again but no, still wrong password, so I took a long breath, drunk some water and suddenly, as a lightning bolt strike, it occurred to me... wait! It cannot be ... I'm not that lazybones ... yes! When I first created the password I forgot to turn CAPS LOCK off. So, I entered again the correct password and from that moment on, everything went ok and my whole system was restored nicely. Some weeks later I realized that my HD was faulty -having done some tests- so I bought a new one and used the image DVD again without any problems. Great tool!

Your product has saved us in many other ways more than I could ever begin to write about.

We have about 16 CNC machines that keep our remanufacturing shop running. One of the flaws of these CNC machines is that in the area surrounding the computer, the temperature fluctuates, vibration is enviable and power fluctuations happen every time the CNC moves! The computers have been built tough with dampers and power conditioners that could run a server room, but the one thing they forgot about was the hard drive. It is directly over a power vent and endures a pounding on a regular basis. We figured out that when a hard drive goes down we can lose up to $500,000 in loss time and materials that could have been processed. So we decided to convert all of the hard drives over to compact flash drives with the help of an IDE to compact flash adapter. Your program was critical and will continue to be critical to the success of this project, with the help of Total Backup Recovery, we have been able to make backup copies of our CNC's and also transfer the images to the compact flash drive making our situation with the CNC a whole lot more reliable. We have a process in place that takes about 5 hours and we clone every machine once a month to ensure data recoverability. Your product has saved us in many other ways more than I could ever begin to write about. Thanks for making a great product and the A+ support your company has.

It is the easiest to use of all the programs I have used

I use to have True Acronis True Image version 9 approx 2-3 yrs ago--worked great until the first update when every drive including backups were corrupt. Then I changed to Norton Ghost version 10--worked good until I rebuilt my comp with another mother board, it wanted me to update the drivers. Then I thought I would try True Acronis True Image version 10, worked great except this time, it restored drive C and E but not drive D which was the important one with wedding photos on it etc. I have never had this problem in the past. From reading the forums I knew the program is a bit flaky. I restored the photos back by transferring folders and files across, which took quite a while.

Then I saw your program, the forums on it were very good, it is the easiest to use of all the programs I have used, I did the back ups, all good, the snapshot is great have already used it when I deleted an icon by mistake, then the big one restoring drive D worked perfectly, if I happened to lose all the photos, I'd be a dead man.

WOW!! I mean I DO expect these features in a commercial/enterprise application... but for home!!

In the IT field I have used software backup and disk cloning software packages like Veritas Netbackup, Acronis, CommVault, Backup Exec, Norton Ghost, Partition Magic Pro, Tapeware, SureStore, and a few others. Some I am more intimate with than others. Some, well its been a long time since using them.

I do realize that some of them have a different purpose. But what I feel is that TotalRecovery Pro can do just about what all of them can do. Some I have been impressed with while others have much to be desired. It was a sinch to install, very intuitve. Being an application developer, I am a very picky person when it comes to software, its UI and ease of use.

I like how easy it is to create images, snapshots, and incremental backups. The interface is so easy to use compared to the other products above. Sheesh.. not to mention.. I don't even have to shut down my PC and its super fast! I have yet to test a restore on another machine however but that feature about loading on a different PC with dissimular hardware.. well that is awesome! I have done quite a bit PC baselining and imaging..and let me tell you.. this seems way easier than SysPreping!! When I emailed you at first.. I didn't even see the brick level backup capability! I just saw that today and was like WOW! I DO expect these features in a commercial/enterprise application... but for home!! I was blown away.

Rest assured, TotalRecovery Pro is now my choice software package for driving image and system backup/restore needs. Keep up the good work!

Thanks again for a great product!! I have been recommending your product to my friends and co-workers!


Avrai la possibilità di utilizzare un software davvero eccezionale

Avrai la possibilità di utilizzare un software davvero eccezionale. We bought both TotalRecovery Pro and TotalRecovery Express. The Radiology IT Group members really liked TotalRecovery Express. While in TotalRecovery Express, we could map our NAS drive, then image the computer to a folder in the NAS. It worked very well both ways. It also worked great (and fast) with an external USB HD. If you could only have a feature in TotalRecovery Express to access system restore points; however, that´s available in TotalRecovery Pro for a few dollars more. The techs especially liked the fact that you could install additional drivers, if needed, right from the TotalRecovery Express menu.

We plan to use TotalRecovery Pro as part of our Rapid Restore program for critical users such as our Finance section and our grants managers. Some of them cannot afford to be down for even 20 minutes. TotalRecovery Pro will help them stay on line and have a fail-safe restore option.

One of our other options is to set up their PCs with dual hard drives. First we clone drive C to drive D, then unplug drive D. If drive C fails, we simply shutdown, switch the connections from drive C to drive C and drive D to drive C which now becomes a data drive. Boot from the new drive C and pull over the latest files from drive D or from our Iron Mountain backup service. Slick! As soon as we determine how many more machines will be involved, I´ll get in touch with you.

Glad to be of service!

Perfect antidote to keeping my personal/home network of computers and memorable family photos backed up

Every three to four months I would spend countless hours re-installing and backing up computers on my home network, until I came across FarStone. Specifically, TotalRecovery Pro, I now have the perfect antidote to keeping my personal/home network of computers and memorable family photos backed up.

However, my favorite feature of TotalRecovery Pro has the system snapshot, which gives me the ability to take any one of my machines back to a perfectly stable and fast running platform (unlike any anti-virus software).

Not only is it great software but the people, specifically tech support, have always respectfully and promptly responded to my computer and software questions and needs within hours of sending an email.

Thanks to everyone at FarStone!

It works for me

If you´re looking for a product which is easy to install for data backup or recovery and doesn´t cost a fortune, that is simple to use, to recover “crashed systems” after the virus attacks, wrong driver installs, “blue screen of death” or migrating to new hardware etc, then use TotalRecovery, it works for me. Tech support actually replies to your inquiries within 48 hours as well.


My StarCraft saved

One time I was playing Starcraft when my cat jumps on the keyboard and starts jumping around!! I got mad so I took it outside when I noticed my computer froze. I restarted my computer and I found out my cat clicked uninstall button for the game! (I don't know why I even had that icon.) So I began to rummage around my room when I accidently stepped on my CD. After hours of shouting and anger management (jk:D), I check my computer to see if I could use TotalRecovery to save my disk. It took me minutes before I found my game in some other file. But in the end of the day: the cat got wet, reinstalled my game, killed alot of aliens :D.

In few minutes the computer is back on track

I have 3 kids and their friends keep damaging home computers. They treat computers really bad. After 2 to 4 months the computers became slow and full of problems, unknown software, etc. ...It is time for Farstone to reinstall the image.... in few minutes the computer is back on track, couple more minutes to update software patches. Finally, I get a new computer image and ready for the next challenge. The same process without Farstone could take 1 to 2 days.

An absolute must for protection from disc crashes

The first product I used from FarStone was RestoreIt, which is now incorporated into TotalRecovery Pro. RestoreIt saved my computer on more than one occasion and is so easy to use. TotalRecovery Pro is an absolute must for protection from disc crashes. A whole disc backup takes far less time than some pieces of backup software. Backups can be set to allow for the restore to be made to any other hard drive. Backups can also be kept up to date by using incremental backups (adding all changes to data). The clone feature allows for a complete, fast, and restorable copy of your hard drive. One big advantage of TotalRecovery Pro is the ability to restore a cloned drive to any other hard drive. The Snapshot facility, run on start-up, or any other time, is fast, and easier to use than the Windows version. The support team at FarStone is helpful and speedy in response to inqueries.

Un rapporto qualità/prezzo senza dubbi ottimo

After two hard drive crashes in two months and all that it entails I went searching for a reliable back up system that included not just data but apps as well. A search of the web resulted in what seemed to be two trustworthy software's. Close inspection revealed that TotalRecovery was Un rapporto qualità/prezzo senza dubbi ottimo. Not only was back up offered but cloning as well, together with the ability to schedule work.

After downloading and running I encountered some teething problems of my own making and contacted FarStone support. The answers I received were prompt and easy to understand, and best of all they worked. Because of the first class software and support received I have now upgraded to TotalRecovery Pro which gives even more sophisticated features.

I have recently switched from using Acronis True Image to DriveClone Pro. Why?

I have recently switched from using Acronis True Image to DriveClone Pro. Why? Acronis does not work with modern computer hardware, particularly SATA drives and their Customer Support is sadly and disappointingly, abysmal. I have a number of computers, three with non-SATA drives and my most recent acquisition is a powerful quad core with SATA drives. Acronis True Image worked well with non-SATA computers and it totally failed to work on my newest hardware.

Their newest version, Acronis True Image 2009 will allow one to make backups but will fail when restoring from these backup archives. The Rescue Media (boot disk) generated from their newer version refuses to boot the computer. It takes days for their Customer Support to respond and their stock answer is to provide a customised ISO (which in my case failed). At this time I also discovered a number of my colleagues were having problems with their upgraded Acronis True Image 2009 version in that during back up Acronis True Image deleted their Outlook pst folder!! That indeed is a serious flaw suggesting their products are released without adequate testing! I have since discovered that Acronis´ own user Forum is full of unresolved user woes stretching back a couple of years or more. Had I known of this I would never have bought their product despite the good reviews in computer press. Also, their product does not uninstall cleanly and requires quite an effort to purge registry and other remnants manually.

With the failure of Acronis True Image that I experienced I had to search for a disk image backup/restore solution that actually works on modern hardware. I am indeed glad that I discovered TotalRecovery Pro, which just fits the bill. The boot disk works. The backup and restore processes work flawlessly. Their Customer Support is, refreshingly responsive and one is totally reassured when relying on their products. I have found this to be a totally trouble-free experience having switched to TotalRecovery Pro from Acronis True Image.

I would urge and recommend anyone facing problems with Acronis True Image to switch to TotalRecovery Pro and enjoy stress-free disk image backup and restore experience.

Thumbs up to Farstone for a great product

Working in the IT support sector I realized that I was guilty of not properly backing up my own home computer. I was fairly certain I wanted to be able to create a snapshot of my entire hard drive in case of a catastrophic hardware failure. I didn't want to spend the time loading the OS then loading all the applications and do the countless configuration settings. While doing internet searches for such a backup solution I found Farstone TotalRecovery. It appeared to be just what I was looking for and was quite affordable. I compared user reviews and found many people liked the power and simplicity of the product. After downloading the trial version I tried it out and must agree that TotalRecovery is simple to use and would fulfill all my computer backup needs. The Windows PE interface that TotalRecovery uses is much better than the older Pre-OS (DOS-mode) used previously for a recovery boot. BTW, I did have to contact Farstone support for an issue I had and found the support very fast and they quickly worked through my issue. Thumbs up to Farstone for a great product.

  • E' necessario seguire una check-list prima di installare PC Recovery?
    1. PC Recovery supporta il file system FAT32 (L'ultima partizione sul disco dovrebbe essere NTFS) e NTFS. E' comunque consigliato utilizzare un file system NTFS viste le limitazioni del file system FAT32.
    2. Se si usa un file system NTFS, procedere al punto 3. E' possibile effettuare la conversione da FAT o FAT32 a NTFS, tale conversione lascia tutti i files presenti nella partizione intatti. Per effettuare la conversione utilizzare il comando convert. La sua sintassi è convert x: /fs: NTFS dove x è la lettera del drive assegnata alla partizione da convertire.
    3. Prima di installare PC Recovery, essere sicuri che l'ultima partizione sul disco abbia sufficiente spazio libero e tutte le installazioni richieste e drivers sono stati installati.

Riconoscimenti per DriveClone Pro

More to the point, Drive Clone Pro still gives me everything that I decided I liked in the old Restore IT product, but added some features that has me scratching my head wondering why I so rarely see these features in their competitor’s products. By Brian Chee, InfoWorld - Oct 20, 2007

WOW... Quanto tempo risparmiato!!!”
