- There is no doubt the user interface is simple. But it lacks some nifty features. It is not possible to drag and drop files or delete video files from the repair list. I wish such features were present.
- Though the program supports some major video file formats, it still doesn’t cover a lot of other formats like MKV, AVI, FLV, and others. Though they are not too popular, who can say, one of your best memory is in those formats.
- I wish there was the provision to allow the software use or not use multiple cores to speed up the repair process or get more room for other applications currently in use.
Well, the software just promises to repair your corrupted video files. So I didn’t try harder finding additional cons. So those were the cons.
