Pros

Cons

Cat Ellis

Recuva fulfils its promise of recovering lost data, whatever the source. There’s even a Secure Overwrite option to allow you to delete files so that even Recuva can’t get them back. Be careful with that one!

Piriform Recuva is a free program for restoring lost or deleted files from hard drives, SD cards, USB drives and other storage media.

When you delete a file, that file isn’t actually removed immediately. Windows severs the link to the file, but the data itself is still there until it's overwritten with new data - and sometimes even that isn't enough.

It also doesn't matter whether you've deleted the data deliberately or your files got lost through a system crash, programming mistake or viruses.

All you have to do is download the Recuva Free application, load it up, select a drive and click 'Scan'. In just a few seconds any deleted files that can be recovered are listed.
