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 (almost) exactly what it says on the tin!"

November 29, 2011  |  By Phrixos

 |  Version: No File Recovery 1.5

Pros

Used it dozens of times, so far, with no problems*
Does what it says in the tin, Simply, efficiently and super-fast. and.
"Absolutely-no frills" ~style interface. (Doesn't need them.)

Cons

*One tiny point that may account for some user-gripes: If you find that it does not work (I use Vista, btw) it's because you must right-click and choose the "Run as Administrator" option. On doing that, it should sail through the job. I emailed the company about that, but since I have not downloaded an upgrade I don't know if they corrected it.

Summary

Highly recommended. Am still using the program.

"Does it work?"

November 11, 2008  |  By mouchou

 |  Version: No File Recovery 1.5

Pros

Cannot tell pros, I open the freeware, click begin and poof I/O error 13xx something :/. I was able to uninstall using normal process but considering other messages I WILL CHECK for possible adware, spam stuffs and on...

Cons

Design is simply TERRIBLE!!!!
It looks like back to windows 3.11
The link tips and tricks refers to some spyware/adware list or category by alphabetical order. I am not sure what was the intention since the freeware is to kill deleted files

Summary

Download and try... but at your own risk.
Personally I tried 30 seconds and I deleted it.

"Did a great job!"

November 02, 2007  |  By ken_louderback

 |  Version: No File Recovery 1.5

Pros

This program is a bonus. It helped me to clean my hard drive of left over file fragments and deleted files. It is well-worth the time it takes to run it. (It takes about the same amount of time as does " DskScan" in the hard drive properties "Tools" menu.

Cons

No cons that I am aware of.
