We want to tell you about the Recuva, because it was one of the first free data recovery software. It is noticeable that Recuva and extremely popular CCleaner are products of the same company, but second one is much more successful. Besides recovery, this program is able to destruct files totally.

However, if we are talking about modern free data recovery software, Recuva may seem too old-fashioned. It will work out only in cases when you need to recover the file, that was deleted several minutes ago and still there is no 100% guarantee of success.

How to use file recovery software?

Nobody wants to lose any kind of files, but you should not start to panic, because some of them still can be saved! There are a lot of file recovery software, so most of it is free or very cheap. However “free” does not mean “useless” since developers managed how to make even “conditionally free utilities” profitable.

Cases, when you should use file recovery software:

  • Your disk or USB-drive was damaged, so you PC cannot read the files in proper way.
  • You deleted files on your own. We hope that it was accident.
  • Virus, malware or other reason has damaged file system, so now there are too many errors, which make it impossible to read the file.
