Orion File Recovery Review

Tina de Pierre
Wizard-based step-by-step file recovery software with permanent deletion feature
A review of Orion File Recovery by Tina de Pierre

Orion Recovery is a rather simple file recovery application which is able to restore lost or deleted files from your hard drive (or other media).

The program is overall pretty user friendly thanks to its easy-to-use file recovery wizard. Just follow the process after running the app. From the recovery wizard, you can specify criteria: select whether you want to recover music, videos, pictures, etc.

Depending on how large the media is, it may take some time in order for Orion to finish its work. Once done, you're given a list of files which it can try to recover; You're also given the option to permanently erase the file so that it may not be recovered in the future.

For a free application, Orion File Recovery Software isn't bad and inline with many of its rivals.

Installation note: When you run the setup for this program, you may be asked to install the Google Toolbar. To avoid installing adware on your system, we recommend deselecting the optional addon which is checked by default.
