May.16, 2016—iCare Recovery received a feedback from a user called Aaron who had used iCare Data Recovery Pro to recover critically important files from 4TB external USB drive when it said the drive was not formatted:
"Here is my success story. I have a 4 TB external USB drive, I went to use it one day and bam, it said the drive was not formatted. I looked at some various data recovery options, and I tried several of them, but iCare Recovery seemed the best for me. The interface, the process, everything about it was very well nicely put together. I was able to recover a few critically important things with iCare Recovery Home Edition …Everything worked as advertised, no complaints really. Looking forward to seeing how it recovers much more data. You guys rock so far!!"
