GoPro recovery software comes in two versions - standard and forensic. For most users the standard is all that is required
Before making a purchase it is necessary to know your Machine ID code, as determined by the GPR software. Download and run the demo and make a copy of the ID code. This is as shown below at the bottom of the screen
The code shown here is 305360FA It is numbers 0-9 and letters A-F only. This 8 character number is required for the purchase process. The purchase is for a single PC, though can be transfered at a later date by a simple e-mail request.
It is highly recommended that the demo is tried before a purchase is made.
The two options are Standard and Forensic. Both do full recovery. The extras for Forensic is the ability to process fragments and partial files. Occasionally, this will mean that extra files can be reconstructed. The other forensic feature is an enhanced log with GPS locations, MD5 HASH value and the ability to view each fragment location. You chose which option on the PayPal based purchase form. The forensic version will also read .E01 files (encase files) - industry standard for many forensic applications.

After purchase, an e-mail will be sent to your registered PayPal e-mail. You will then need to enter this code into the GPR software. If you do not receive the code within 30 minutes, please check your spam mail, your PayPal e-mail account, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
(We received occasional reports that e-mails to gmail accounts can take a few hours)
Licence. The licence is a lifetime licence, with free updates. Although it is licenced to a single PC, the code can be transfered if requested by e-mail, email@example.com at any time.
Standard to Forensic upgrade
If you wish to update your standard licence to a forensic licence at a later date, it is necessary to purchase a second normal licence ($22.95) and contact CnW (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will then send an upgrade code for a forensic version.
Demo file conversion
The demo version of the software saves files with names such as .demomp4, .demolrv. These will not be viewable. After purchase, the registration screen has an option to 'Decode demo files'. This will convert the files to standard .MP4, playable files
