I have tried multiple other services to restore SD cards that have corrupted from reformatting or other issues. iBoysoft is fast and efficient. All my files were easy to import onto my machine and all worked perfectly. Seriously, don't waste your time around the internet looking for solutions because this is it.

My macbook wasn't able to read the files in the external HD that I haven't been using for some time. iBoysoft worked for me after I aborted the scan process midway and selected a fewer number of files to recover at each time.

I had a dying external hard drive with gopro videos that were very important to me on it. The drive would crash every time I tried to copy them over. I used iBoySoft and was able to transfer over the files without any issue. A Lifesaver!
