Why I have to wait a few weeks to upload another video to youtube.

Disk Drill

So I had a crash a few days back and went into panic mode.  I didn’t have time to do a backup &  searched online for a few products that would allow me “recover” unbacked up files.

I found a few, they all offered the same thing, a quasi “trial period” whereby you get to see a list of the files that could possibly be recovered but you don’t get to actually view them.

A little queasy at just losing the bulk of my files I went with the one called Disk Drill at http://www.cleverfiles.com  I think they should reconsider their name and rename their business http://www.cleverfraud.com.

Their trial period was the same as all the others.  Look here at this nice pretty list of “recoverable” (remember the quotations marks) files and when you upgrade to pro we gonna make you all happy.  Screen Shot 2018-02-15 at 1.12.29 PM.png

So begrudgingly I applied for pro, seeing as the files I had lost (if they were recoverable at all) was worth paying for the service.


So I ponied up the extraordinary price and set to recovering.  As soon  as I let the software “recover” my video files I found that the files were ENTIRELY unusable.  Some of the footage was completely static, grainy, stock public domainy images or flat out just blackened out.  COMPLETELY unusable.

So naturally like any healthy consumer I wanted a refund.  I go to their customer support and they don’t offer refunds.  He asks me “why didn’t you just use the 30 day trial” and now exhausted  I mean…. there literally was NO 30 day trial, you upload the program and then its on your computer but it doesn’t do anything whatsoever, just floats around in the background like some useless organ.  You can’t even test it until you buy the PRO version.

So he says “we offer an exception to the return policy, show us a video of the unrecovered files and we’ll return your money.”
So now I puckered up, I knew 100% I had a case, the files didn’t work, the recovery was a failure/waste of time and now I had a chance to show them I was really in turmoil and not just a lowly scrooge trying to snake them out of a buck.  Easy, Beazy Lemon Squeezy, right?  So I made a video of myself going into the files and showing the failed files and then clicked send.  I get an email back a few hours later, from John….”Uhhhh….no that’s not what I meant no refund.”

How did the goal change all of a sudden?  When your playing soccer you don’t move the posts just so your opposing team misses the shot?  And that’s what they did to me god dammit!!!

So sorry to everybody that I can’t upload my videos, I lost the files without backing up..Stupid, stupid, stupid.

But in an attempt to get them back I made another foolish mistake and trusted these clever scammers down at cleverfiles.com or as I like to call them cleverfraud.com

So once again http://www.cleverfiles.com  steer clear of these Sadistic Scammers.
