Be warned it is still in testing, and only tested in WinXP, 2003, so far

just a ^bump^ to inform others
and thanks for the `beta` warning, should have said so myself

Very very interesting if its anything like as good as Ccleaner. I don't normally try BETA programs but I might make an exception in this case.
Thanks for that brundle.

Thanks as well! ;-)

I just tried running it and it found a lot of files on my C drive, some were overwritten and some were partly over written. Theres none of them I want to restore at this time as that might be where the trouble begins but it does look like it could be rather useful.
I had rather hoped it would also scan the likes of corrupted CDs etc but it only seems able to read hard drives at the present which is a shame.
Still a useful add on tool though.

Thanks brundle, I will give that a try.

Trouble, It will scan my D: (slave) and F: (External) but it scans up to 42% of C: then has an error and closes. I have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled with no change, and I have tried to scan in Safe Mode but it still has an error and closes.I think I will give it a miss until the full version is released.
