Hi,

I have a Window 8 64 bit version installed in both my desktop and laptop. Can you suggest some driver updater software which may cost less and which I can buy and use on multiple machines. Also, please suggest a data recovery software that I can buy to recover data from my External Portable USB Hard disks that I can use on two systems ( My Laptop and Desktop)?

Please revert for any questions.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.

Hi,

Here is a status update. Can you suggest any data recovery software which is not very expensive but can scan for bad sectors in a dead usb external hard disk and recover data from a dead hard disk.

Please revert for any questions.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.

sure; here a fast and free one :  https://www.slimwareutilities.com/slimdrivers.php      
>>  can scan for bad sectors in a dead usb external hard disk and recover data from a dead hard disk.  <<  that depends on how "DEAD" the disk is
if it is not running, no software can help
but i have have used HDDRegenerator many times, and found it very good :

if you need a data recovery service, here a few to consider :

Hi,

Can you suggest a driver updater software other than Driver Detective and Driver Max where I can use a single purchased license that I can use on multiple computers?

If you feel that DriverMax itself is a good driver updater software, I would like to go for Driver Max.

Please respond as soon as possible.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.
