Late last year, we kicked off a series of articles called The (Windows) Admin’s Toolkit. Since then, Win10.Guru has issued 9 installments. This story, about MiniTool’s Power Data Recovery (MTPDR) will be the tenth. Unlike the previous item – the MiniTool Partition Wizard (MTPW) – the free version of this program is not fully functional.

As I have recounted in a preceding series of posts on this site, starting in mid-January and lasting some few weeks I encountered various weird issues with Office 365.
