    "Didn't recover a video clip"

    May 31, 2013  |   By gavin.burgess

    Version: Recuva 1.46.919

    Pros

    None, other than the price

    Severely limited. Video clip was found and recovered by three other applications, two free, no problem.

    Summary

    Downloaded one that works

    "Most valuable and universal product I ever used!"

    May 23, 2013  |   By Johnson789

    Version: Recuva 1.46.919

    Pros

    Recently my computer got corrupted with a virus, it froze on me and I was unable to retrieve anything on it. I was desperate to get recover my stuff on it. I used my husband's computer to search for a solution online. I found Recuva. All I can say is, it worked beautifully. I was able to get everything back. Thanks so much!

    Cons

    This software is very simple to use - even for a computer tech illiterate like myself. I lost my website after my webhost screwed up and I didn't keep the backup on my desktop. I deleted is months ago. I even emptied my recycle bin. But after installing this program and using it, there it was and I got my website back :)

    Summary

    By far the easiest to use. I formatted my 3TB data drive containing over 10 years of photos and over 80,000 music files plus a lifetime of documents. My wife threatened to kill me over the photos. LOL Thank you for saving me. ECELLENT product and value!!! Believe me, I was a skeptic. Not anymore.

    "Great free software"

    April 23, 2013  |   By shinypeepsicle

    Version: Recuva 1.46.919

    Pros

    Easy to use and very effective - about 95% fully recovered in my case. Lots of info about the recovered files so it's easy to see which ones you lost, even if you can't access the full file. Gives an indication of how good the recovery was for each file.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    All in all, a good piece of free software, though I would say if it's vital you recover as near to 100% as possible, shut the computer down before it overwrites too much and pay an expert!

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

    April 13, 2013  |   By upvibe

    Version: Recuva 1.46.919

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    None that I can find

    Summary

    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.

    Pros

    it's great it really work!!

    Cons

    I have recovered my video file, but when i click it, it doesn't seem to play . its says " This video cannot be played ".
    Does recovering deleted files that was deleted long time ago matters?
