A famous application for file recovery is Recuva. This tool will scan your PC for deleted files and allow you to recover them. In addition to deleted files, this tool can be used to repair damaged files as well.
When you start the application you’ll be greeted by Recuva Wizard asking you to choose which type of file you want to recover. You can choose between all files, pictures, music, documents, video, compressed files and emails.
By choosing a specific file type you’ll narrow your search and speed up the scanning process. After selecting the file type you need to choose the location that you want to scan. Recuva can scan the entire PC, your media card, Recycle Bin or a specific location on your PC.
After the application finishes the scan, you can select the files that you want to recover from the list of results. You can also use the search bar on the top to quickly find files that you want to repair.
This tool also supports Deep Scan feature that will perform a detailed scan of your hard drive. Recuva also works with damaged disks, so you can recover files from damaged flash drives. In addition to recovery, the tool also allows you to securely delete files thus preventing any chance for recovery.
Recuva is a great tool for file recovery, and it’s available for free. In fact, there’s a portable version available so you can use this tool on any PC without installation.
Professional version is also available and it gives you access to advanced file recovery, but you have to pay for it. Additional features include virtual hard drive support, automatic updates and premium support.
Even though professional version comes with a license fee, the free version will be enough for most users.
