My word document, part of my Ph.D. dissertation got corrupted just as I was about to save it on the cloud. 2 days' worth of work...graphs, equations, a write-up... (I had not backed up all weekend...lesson learned) was about to be lost. I tried every method available and this is the only one that repaired and recovered my document. I have now re-saved and backed up that file!!! Thank you so much Recovery Toolbox!!! I can tell you I have learned my lesson.

I have supposed wrongly that imap files were stored both on the mail server and locally in Outlook files. After having suppressed my mail account I realized that I have lost all my imap files. Using a backup file I was able to find a .ost file where my files were stored. Using the recovery tools for Outlook, I was able to convert the .ost files into a .pst file that I was able to import inti Outlook.

The mysql.db table corrupted (not sure what actually corrupted). I was able to fully recover my database and rebuilt a new instance of mysql and reload my database. So all goo.

I had the file open when my laptop froze. I was unable to use task manager to end the program (all apps were frozen) so I had to power off the machine. When I rebooted and opened the project file, I began getting the 'not a project file' error. The recovery toolbox worked EXCEPT for the critical Task field.

Amazingly Excellent tool. Excellent tool. It happened like... A known brother of mine wanted to copy their marriage cd to usb. It was a very old one. Then we found there were scratches and blotches on the CD and it didn't work properly. Finally this tool RECOVERY TOOLBOX came in handy. I got it from a search and didn't have much hopes. However it worked like wonder and got us the corrupted files and did a very perfect recovery. Love this tool. A big blessing to oldies like us.

I used the software to recover my Contact List that somehow disappeared without warning. Now reinstalled into Outlook 2016, running on the latest Windows 10 Pro. The message here - periodically backup Contacts by Exporting as CVS file. Another manual BU task sadly.
