Purchase CnW Software

Purchase CnW Data Recovery Software - Options

Automated secure online purchase, with PayPal

The data recovery software package is available with several options and features as described below.

The current version includes free, unlimited updates that may be downloaded at any time. The licence has a life time duration - it never expires. It is recommended that you do update your program every few months. Just go to the download page and install latest version. The documentation is comprehensive, but we also give full support via e-mail and will normally respond within 12-24 hours (subject to time zones).

NB, before proceeding with the purchase please download the demo program first. It is required to obtain the machine ID - an 8 digit hexadecimal number in the format such as A168FC12. It is useful to know that the program will recover your data. If the media can not be seen in the demo, the licenced version will not detect the media either. The software is licenced to a specific PC, but this may be transferred, free of charge at any time, simply by contacting CnW Recovery with your new machine ID. If you use a machine ID from a different PC it will need to be updated before you can run the program

After purchase, you will receive 2 e-mails, one from PayPal, and the other from CnW Recovery. For security, the e-mail address used will be the one registered with PayPal. The latter will give the program registration number for the PC you have registered. Both e-mails should come within a few minutes of payment.
Occasionally it has been reported that the automatic e-mail response from CnW Recovery has not received. This is normally because a spam filter has incorrectly trapped it. If you have not received the registration code within a few minutes, please e-mail info@cnwrecovery.com as soon as possible. (Also check your spam filter). We will respond as quickly as possible. Subject to time zones this will be within a few hours, and should never be longer than 24 hours. Please review terms and conditions.

It is impossible for anyone to guarantee that data recovery software will work - simply because there are so many ways that data can be lost, or devices fail. CnW however will guarantee full support with any issues. If the problems are significant it may be necessary to send CnW the device, or for memory chips, it may be possible to make use of the CnW FTP site to upload the problem chip image. The bottom line is that CnW will do everything possible to help recover data and video.
