"I lost the USB cord to my new camera. Went all over town and searched online for a replacement but no luck... A friend offered to share her card reader to download the 628 pictures trapped on my camera. When we put the card in some how all the pictures were wiped out? Lost? That was 2 trips to Mexico, birthday parties, and many more memories that could not be re-created.

Thank goodness I found Media Investigator!! Tech support was awesome (thanks Jay)! Very easy process and well worth every penny. All 628 pictures were recovered!! Thank you Data Recovery Systems!!!"

We understand how stressful it is to lose important files whether you've lost them by accidentally deleting them, formatting the drive or through no fault of your own.

It's not uncommon for memory cards to become corrupt simply by removing the card. When you insert the memory card next time, all of your files have mysteriously disappeared! In fact, it was because of a personal file loss experience that our company's two founding members – both IT professionals with decades of experience, created Media Investigator.

We believe Media Investigator is the best file recovery program available. Some of our competitors have created many different programs to recover your files – one for images, one for videos, one for hard drives, one for memory cards, etc.

With Media Investigator, you will only ever need one program to recover your files!

Media Investigator now recovers Blu-ray (M2TS) and High Definition (MTS AVCHD) videos! Select Features above to view the full list of currently supported file types.

Due to its nature, file recovery can never be guaranteed so we can't say you'll definitely recover your files. But we're so confident in Media Investigator's powerful file recovery technology, that we can offer you a Recover or Refund guarantee. Quite simply, if Media Investigator doesn't recover the files it said it could, we'll gladly refund your money.

Mobile Phone Recovery

So long as your computer can see the drive that has your lost files (i.e. it has a drive letter in Windows Explorer), Media Investigator can recover your lost files.

If you want to recover files from a mobile phone / tablet, the phone's drive may not appear with its own drive letter. In this case Media Investigator cannot recover your files. But we can recommend one of our affiliates.

Mac Data Recovery

Media Investigator is designed for Windows. If you need to recover lost or deleted data on a Mac, we recommend our affiliate Tenorshare Data Recovery for Mac which also has a free trial.

Risk-Free File Recovery Software

Hidden behind easy-to-use screens are complicated, advanced algorithms to find your lost files. This allows you to recover your files in just a few steps with no technical expertise.

Media Investigator's unique "walk-throughs" answer any questions you may have about each screen, helping to ensure you successfully recover your files as easily as possible.

If you do still have any problems finding your lost files, our first class customer support is here to ensure you recover as many of your files as possible.

"Thank you!!!!! Your software saved my video. My son is 12 and it was a video of him getting his 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

You saved the day!!!!!!!

Another recovery company that was recommended told me it would cost close to US$1600 if they could recover them and US$500 if they couldn't and that included a discount."

Professional File Recovery at an Affordable Price

We know that you don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars like some of our competitors charge and that not everyone needs to perform file recovery often. So, we give you a choice when it comes time to recover your files.

If you only want to recover files once then a single-recovery licence – good for one recovery of all files you select, costs a mere US$14.95.

If you want the freedom to recover more often and on different computers, then a multi-recovery licence – allowing unlimited recoveries on up to three computers, is available for just US$49.95.

The analysis of your drive (using both the Undelete and Low Scan algorithms) costs nothing and is completely risk-free. If you want to recover your lost files now then click on the Download button and let Media Investigator show you (for free) what you can recover right now before it’s too late.

Please don’t think all data recovery programs are the same. We’ve dedicated years researching and developing our powerful and fast Undelete and Low Scan algorithms and hundreds of customers, like the one above often take the time to write in and thank us for finding files that other file recovery software couldn’t.

"We lost over 200 of our vacation pictures on our SD camera card.

I tried a free version of file recovery software first without success and with some further searching I found your product.

It is second to none in my opinion! It is simple to use and very effective. Although I do not look forward to having to recover files in the future I will certainly not hesitate to use your service if needed.

Thank you for providing a great product with a reasonable price and for helping us keep our memories of our vacation."
