Recuva Portable

CNET Editors' review

Recuva Portable recovers files of all kinds that have been lost or deleted from your computer, iPod, or media card. It can even recover files lost to viruses, and its intuitive interface makes it a quick and painless process.

As soon as you install Recuva, you're ready to recover files. There is a wizard that will guide you through the process of searching for and recovering files by asking you what type of files you'd like to search for and where you'd like to search. For instance, you can search for documents, pictures, video, music, or all files, and you can specify the location that the files were deleted from, or you can choose "not sure" and let the app scan the whole system.

The free version of Recuva contains all of the features of the paid versions, but it doesn't have any support at all. All of the online help links open ads, and to access the priority support, you need to purchase a business membership for $34.95. There is also a professional option, which is recommended for home users and costs $24.95. If you know what you're doing, the free version is probably fine for you. Advanced users would probably be fine with the free version, but anyone who needs a little help getting started would either have to pay or find an alternative program.

    "great software for DATA RECOVERY."

    November 29, 2012  |   By capitanflorius

    Version: Recuva Portable 1.43.623

    Pros

    This program allows you to retrieve data of any kind (files, images, etc..) That have been accidentally deleted from your hard drive.
    It works very well and with thorough scan recovers all recoverable, indicating the data that has been overwritten (and therefore no longer visible) and those that have not been overwritten and therefore can be recovered.
    This program has allowed me to recover an important file that other software had not been able to do.
    Enables the recovery of deleted data even on external removible hard drives.

    Cons

    The scan depth is a little long for large hard disk.

    Summary

    Anyone who needs to recover lost files, you should try this program that I recommend highly.
