When I run the install on an admin account I get a message telling me that I am not using an administrator account and asks me if I would like to change this. Then it hangs and gives me the following diag msg. Sounds a little suspect to me.

I have a SanDisk Compact Flash card reader attached by USB to my laptop. Windows 7 Enterprise runs chkdsk f: just fine, but the Kickass program kept the F: grayed out, so I could not run the tool on the CF card.
Does work on some files. Not quite "there" yet. Would crash on certain files. I had better luck with Recuva. Should also warn users to recover to a different drive and not the same drive.
