Why do they insist on making these recovery programs Windows based?

That can't make in linux based because linux has data recovery stuff already in the package. Why I would want to use this over a live cd I don't know, I guess I felt I had a lot of money to waste on proprietary software would be one, but that doesn't seem like it will happen.

Right. As I recall, many of the commercially available data recovery programs used to use self booting media. Now they just make them windows apps.....which means if it's your one and only windows machine that has fried, you need to find another windows machine to install the software on to recover your data... It's just...illogical...

I too can't understand how this is better than, say, Puppy. Puppy boots quickly, it requires just a few clicks, and yes it provides a GUI. It couldn't be simpler. It's definitely easier than using this Windows-based "thing".

Given the breadth and quality of data recovery software for Linux, and indeed Windows, that runs on Linux, and which runs from a Live CD of Linux, even if one didn't have a second PC running Linux, which is more likely than having a second PC running Windows, this windows based recovery software seems rather pointless, just someone trying to profit from ignorance, I suppose.
