Today reviews PhotoNose – a photo recovery software.
Download… Run… Next, Next, Next, Next… Install… Finish…
You’re done, that’s all it takes to install Photo Nose Pro by Acute tools. I was sent this little (1.78mb) piece of photo recovery software by the guys at Acute Tools to try out, and what a great little piece of software it is. I use recovery software on a weekly basis in my “day job” mainly for recovering failed drives and that sort of thing. I’ve used about five different suites of recovery software in the course of my IT life and have not had much trouble with any of them as was the case with Photonose Pro… The install process took a whole forty seconds, then, with a double click I was well on my way to recovery.
I shot a 4gb card of photos last night in cr2 format (That’s Canons RAW file format) and, as ever was quite keen to get the photos onto my laptop for developing in Adobe Lightroom. I popped the little door open and slipped the card out and, to my dismay, noticed as the card was popping out that the file write was probably still part way through. Now, I know that the camera powers down when you open the little door, but, I managed to get it to power down mid way through a file write and corrupted the card! Brilliant… Well, not all bad, the shoot was just part of my threesixtyfive so it wasn’t crucial, but, it was an ideal time to put Photonose through its paces!
