Editor's Review

Recuva is one of the most highly-regarded file recovery programs and it is available to all users for free. Whether you accidentally deleted some vacation photos or your resume, Recuva can help you in your time of need. Recuva can be used to restore files deleted from your computer, digital camera, mp3 player, and external hard drives such as a USB drive.


Recuva is very easy to navigate and users of any experience level will be comfortable using this program. It is easy to search for a file or even just a file type and restore the files all in the same screen. Recuva can be used to find lost or deleted documents and can also be used to permanently delete files so they will not be able to be restored, even by Recuva.


Recuva features an automated recovery wizard that will help users that are new to file recovery by walking them through the process step by step. Just select what type of file you need to recover, where the file may have been located (you can look in one folder or several if you aren't sure) and let the wizard do the rest of the work for you. Recuva is also able to restore any Word documents that were unsaved so you never have to worry about losing your hard work when your computer or Word crashes without warning. Another great feature is the fact that Recuva can be run from a USB drive without being installed on the actual computer. What that means for you is that Recuva can be used to recover data from a computer with a corrupted or damaged system so you can get your important files off your computer before having to reinstall the operating system or before getting rid of it altogether.


The performance of Recuva is fantastic. It is able to find most files within a minute and there are a lot of options for how you can find a file. You can search by file type, location, and more. Recuva is highly versatile; it can be used to recover deleted emails from Outlook, Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail, to recover music that was deleted from an mp3 player, recover data from a damaged or formatted disk, and more.


This is an easy piece of recovery software to recommend. It is easy to use and included a quick-start wizard for anyone who is unfamiliar with the best way to recover deleted files, it is incredibly fast so you can recover your documents as soon as you realize they were accidentally deleted, works with a variety of devices and can be used on a computer without having to be installed. Recuva can also help secure your computer by making sure that files you deleted stay that way so no one can try to recover personal information or documents from your computer such as deleted bank statements or tax documents.
