I liked the DiskDigger un-delete program. Out of the four un-deletion programs I recommended here, DiskDigger was my first choice.
Fast forward to now.
I stupidly deleted a temp file on a USB memory disk, and needed it back. So I downloaded a copy of DiskDigger.
Not very happy now.
“Without a license key, DiskDigger will pop up an annoying message box that gently reminds you to purchase a key. It does, of course, allow you to continue without a key, and even proceeds to recover your files. However, it will keep popping up the message box for every file you’re trying to recover. So just buy a license key already! It’s a lot less expensive than comparable utilities out there.”

Hey, I’ve got no problems in buying a license key, even if the program is “free” for personal use. I do have a problem with a program which introduces a five second delay “nag” screen for every file it wants to recover.
There is no way in heck I’d ever recommend DiskDigger now.
