Easy Recovery Essentials Reviews

I had just upgraded my Acer Aspire One 722 from Win 7 to Win 10. It went so well that I thought I should get a new battery to increase my portable time. The machine would not recognize it, and in trying so many suggested ways to fix the problem, I ended up with a blown file in the Win 10 boot.

Tried a lot of stuff, then in desperation went to Geek Squad in the Best Buy store. What a joke! The young guy said, "I think your operating system is kaput!" DOH....like telling me that the computer won't boot; I already knew that. So the verdict? Base cost $150 just to look at it, MAYBE they could give me a new OS, wipe out all my data and programs. I said fugedaboudit! and found this site on a forum, decided to spend the $20 on this software and Lo and Behold! I could download to my other (working) computer, create a bootable thumb drive. Then set the Acer's boot hierarchy to see the thumb drive first, booted and repaired Win 10 and VOILA! total time till I had my Acer back = 20 minutes, including the download and creation of the bootable thumb drive.

Bravo guys! You saved the life of a great little computer!

Delivered as promised

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.

It will save me hours on future repairs

Had a failed HD that was cloned. The clone would not boot with a 0XC0000225 error. Tried all the normal fixes using BOOTREC and DiskPart. After 2 hours of failed fixes, found this utility. Thought I'd give it a try. It took a few minutes and fixed the issue. The drive now boots fine and is fully functional. Best $20 utility I've ever used. I can see it will save me hours on future repairs. I was concerned this was a scam or useless utility, but it is the real deal.

IT WORKED

I have an ASUS AIO 23 inch that started experiencing BSOD after I installed my FitBit on it. I tried a 64 bit recovery disk, and the Windows Recovery on the computer, and nothing worked. This worked! I couldn't believe it, because I had spent two days on it, and ASUS does not offer the $50 Recovery disk for this model. Thank you! I am so impressed.

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 !

Your software saved my life

Your software saved my life. THANK YOU.

I can't believe it worked
By Craig on February 12, 2014

I had recently cloned my harddrive to a larger one, and Windows 8 broke. I tried following instructions on the internet, about doing bootrec etc etc, and it didn't work. As a last resort i bought this disc and it fixed the problem within minutes. Im abit speechless really.

Up and running in less than 10 minutes
By Terry T. on November 18, 2012

I want to thank you very much for your support. This download did fix my pc. I was back up and running in less than 10 minutes from downloading the iso burner and downloading this Vista 32 bit Recovery iso file. I burned it to a CD, booted my pc to the CD and it fixed my pc boot problem on the first try. When I rebooted my pc it booted to the hard drive.

Microsoft got a little smarter with Windows 7 as they restored the ability for users to create a bootable recovery CD in Windows 7. I was able to do that just fine with Windows 7 but not Vista. I think I will be upgrading soon.

Unusable
By Victor Filepp on May 13, 2014

I will be happy to change my review, but right now I cannot use this at all. When this boots it does not recognize the mouse or keyboard on my computer and is therefore completely useless. Hopefully the tech support paople will get my email and provide a fix.

All I can say is WOW. Holy SH*T. This tool works. After being a knuckle head and messing with my SSD my Win 7 Ultimate System went into a reboot loop and just would not start. I searched in a PANICKED FRENZY for a solution on the boards - everywhere. After I noticed that when using my recovery CD that my system was not even recognizing my OS on the right drive - somehow I managed to stumble on to the NeoSmart site. They even offer step by step how to fix your MBR - but when I tried it it did not work. Then I saw the option to just buy their CD and it would fix the issue. I was like yeah right but I was desperate. Ordered it, burned the ISO image onto a CD using another computer - booted off of it - their menu came up - I clicked repair and BAM - my system booted after I restarted it! That's INSANE!!!! It really works. Just Buy It. Thanks for a great product.
