    "BEST un-deleter app ever! Saved me from my own blunder"

    April 13, 2013  |   By upvibe


    When I researched Recuva, it had such positive reviews from users and was the highest rated- now I can see why. Recuva is unlimited in the amount of files you can recover and was the simplest and easiest application to download and interface with.

    It worked perfectly! I was able to restore all my files and with such ease. In that moment, I was forever in love with Recuva. I would highly recommend this application and I give it the highest rating possible.


    None that I can find


    I just wanted to make sure and take the time to write a positive review for Recuva. When something happens that is so devastating, such as deleting all my files that weren't backed up including irreplaceable interview video files, you remember it all clearly. I was desperate for help. Many of the supposedly "free" un-deleters have a limit on how many files you can recover for free and then they charge you (one often discovers this after already installing annoying app that puts toolbars on your browser, etc.) Recuva was saved me and was free, easy, fast and simple interface. I appreciated the integrity and honesty of this company.
