Editors' Review

Overwrite hard-drive free space with random numbers to help complicate deleted file recovery with this simple freeware app. No File Recovery's dialog-sized interface needs only a single pull-down list and a pair of buttons for program operation. You're not going to need a manual to figure out this app.

Operating No File Recovery takes only a couple of clicks. You merely use the pull-down to select a drive, and press the Begin button. This app proceeds to lay down random numbers free block by free block. It isn't lightning fast, but a percentage completed indicator helps users gauge program finish. It's easy to stop the app before completion and restart the process at another time. However, the app can't return to the point where it was interrupted. Program speed is improved if all other apps are closed during the process.

Overwriting free space and deleted files with random numbers may not stop the FBI from recovering your deleted files, but No File Recovery should block nearly anyone else from uncovering your deleted data.

"Does exactly what it says on the tin!"

July 27, 2014  |  By onejob61

 |  Version: No File Recovery 1.9

Pros

Simple and free to use; quick to download with no irritating adware, malware or other programs wrapped up within it (unlike other free 'disk wipe' software I tried). Keeps you updated on progress. Only 'wipes' the files you have already deleted - perfect application if, like me, you are simply looking to dispose of or re-cycle your old laptop.

Cons

Probably wont pass MI5 or CIA tests! - but will suffice if you are only cleaning up your own old home PC

Summary

Simple software - great option for preventing anyone recovering your deleted files before you dispose of your laptop or PC - recommended.

"Does what it claims"

March 24, 2012  |  By samwise1999

 |  Version: No File Recovery 1.9

Pros

writes .dat files to disk, then deletes them when it is done.

Cons

Takes several hours for a 1/3rd of a Terabyte drive, % remaining seems to only see internal hard drive, not external drive.
