Easy Recovery Essentials Reviews

Good product
By John on May 17, 2013

While my issue ended up being my hard drive, I was able to go in easily and retrieve my most important files with this software - something that would have cost me $100 with any other company. Thanks for a good product!

Great software, but...

I'm a fan of EasyRE since it sorted out a major problem I had with Windows 7. However, the Win10 version did not solve the 'Page Fault in Nonpaged Area (lpx6x.sys)' problem I'm having.

Fixed, for the most part. :)

TL;DR - EasyRE works. Saved my life!

I'll be honest: I torrented a crack version of EasyRE in hopes of fixing my laptop. I accidentally deleted the System Reserved partition thinking that I had correctly copied it over (guess I didn't). The thing didn't work and thankfully nothing bad happened; the screen just showed an X.

I could have fixed it myself if given enough time, but I was seriously in a pinch because I needed a solution ASAP. I paid the $20 USD (I'm Canadian, so it's a bit more... but oh well) through credit card, downloaded the file, ran NeoSmart's Easy USB Creator to load EasyREf onto a USB, popped the USB into my unbootable laptop, booted the USB and ran EasyRE... I was so nervous waiting for all the checks and stuff to complete as it does take awhile (especially if you're in a hurry). But the wait was well worth it and the laptop booted into windows!

It works and everything now, but unfortunately I was hit with a "This copy of Windows is not genuine". But as a mighty pirate, that's certainly my fault ... anyway, EasyRE works and that's what's important. :) Worth the money! I'm glad I paid.

Thanks!

Thanks for an excellent and well thought out Repair tool !

Downloaded the files without any problem and the additional "links" and info in the confirmation email is also vey useful and an ideal source of further information !

Just a point that may come in habdy for anyone with a newer Asus laptop or desktop that may well have the new "UEFI /GPT " system instead of the older and more familiar BIOS on board !

After burning the EasyRE image to disk and setting my "Boot order " to select the Optical drive as the 1st. Boot option ....I found on restart of my new Asus laptop that the system still booted into Windows 8.1 and still bypassed the "loaded EasyRE disk " !

I immediately assumed that the UEFI process was probably not allowing sufficient time for the correct boot order process to initiate and I found that by going into "SetUp " mode via the F2 key on an Asus..... and then disabling "Secure Boot " and enabling the" CSM " mode and then Save and Exit via F10 ......the afore mentioned process then allowed the EasyRE to boot and offer the full list of options ! Thanks for a great tool and a secure and safe purcasing experience !

Thanks for a great experience!

You guys provide the finest service I've ever encountered. While others would have given up long ago, you hung in there despite me. Thanks for a great experience!

Upgraded from win 7 to 10, then decided on clean install of 10. This resulted in disk being converted to GPT... no good for me, as free encryption like VeraCrypt and DiskCryptor don't work on UEFI/GPT, system has no TPM for BitLocker, and lame HP Pavilion BIOS can't support hardware encryption. Converted GPT to MBR using EaseUS Partition Master and linux "dd" (to set partition on proper sector). Win 10 OS looked fine from another system, but it would not boot, and tried everything to unlock the disk and repair the MBR. Gave EasyRE a try, and it fixed it! Now my clean Windows 10 install is on BIOS/MBR disk, and I can now encrypt. Thank you!

tl;dr- Windows 10 disk locked after converting from GPT, EasyRE fixed it.

cant boot

Created an ISO disk but it doesn't work. How about some instructions for making it bootable.

Editor's response: Instructions are available in text, picture-by-picture, and video format at http://j.mp/EREUSB and http://j.mp/ImgBurn

I'm sold!
By Steve T on July 17, 2013

I’m sold! I disabled too many services on my msconfig boot.ini. That kept the computer from booting up. I invested the $20 into the Vista Recovery Disk and we’re back. YES!!!!!!! One thing you will need is a older wired keyboard and mouse (the round 6 pin). When the Recovery disk is working, the rest of the computer is shut down, ie, USB ports for wireless keyboard/mouse. I am soooooo happy. I was about ready to purchase a new hard drive and step up to Windows 7 (which wouldn’t have been all that bad). I recommend this product!!!!!

Nothing for me
By Mr Monkey on December 13, 2015

booted up OK but didn't recognize usb keyboard or mouse. So it just sat there like a stale bottle of beer. Windows 7 64 bit on ssd

Delivered as promised
By David on October 26, 2014

Wow, wow.. at first I thought this was just a gimmick.. True to it's promise, it work on the first try... and I was skeptical and reprogrammed the BCD and BootMgr for 3 hours on my own without success.. Should have spent the $20 in the first place and save me all those headache.
