I would expect nothing less, I bet it costs you a small fortune to update all those bad boys
The annual support and updates is only $350/year/system, I do believe.

The license is expensive and I can't splash out on that just to find out I have no use for it.
DRE is a basic file system recovery program, designed with the assumption that the file structure is relatively healthy. With R-Studio, you have the power of R-Studio's ability to handle many different file systems. I've also used R-Studio where I have a drives connected to different DDI systems and then use R-Studio to reconstruct the RAID, mirroring sectors as needed.
I wish that the R-Studio team would step things up and provide more logic based on their ability to cross reference the sector map and the files. That is, R-Studio will show if a file has been full imaged or has bad sectors, but you cannot search and select only good files or damaged files in R-Studio in the advanced filters they have. I've been asking for this feature for several years, and it seems to fall on deaf ears.
Unless you have multiple DeepSpar units, I probably wouldn't feel motivated for the tech license of R-Studio, though you should technically have that license anyway if you are using R-Studio as a data recovery professional.
