Should I buy Rewind 1.1?
In tests where we rewound individual files and recovered trashed files, Rewind performed admirably. And it fared reasonably well when recovering entire disks, but its performance wasn’t perfect. For example, after installing two troubleshooting utilities on a PowerBook G3, we rewound the disk to the previous day. Rewind failed to remove the folders for the recently installed utilities. However, reversing the process – sending the drive forward to a time after we installed the utilities – brought the files back as originally installed. Rewind 1.1 is a good addition to your data-recovery tool kit, and it’s likely to improve with each update. Enough quirks remain, however, that we’ll use it in combination with other utilities – such as Dantz’s Retrospect – as our frontline defence against disk corruption.
