This program saved my ass a couple times. Strongly recommended. I once had my photos wiped from my camera memory card but this program helped me recover it. Other time, I lost some files on one of my HDDs that went bust. This program helped me get them back

Especially, it is portable friendly. I have recuva.exe on my system usb stick. Just stick it in and run recuva.exe.

Windows' own Previous Versions feature is always my first stop, but Recuva is good as a secondary option or on XP systems.

very bad software im sorry (not even close of the greatness of ccclenaer), dont try to use this to recover, it wont find anything. There are better tools, shareware licensed but they actually work.

Iv used Recuva and i couldnt beleive how bad it performed, the worrie is that noob people using this can think that their data as no recovery witch it does...thats why im giving heads up to all. GetDataBack its one of the best i use it for some years, but there are others also nice.

Sorry piriform you will have to do way better, a raw scan application maybe, yours only finds intact files with the original name and extension wich is pointless..

This time i have to disagree. For me it worked like a charm. Accidentaly i had my folder removed, and with help from Recuva, i had all my files back. Maybe if it would be overwritten with other file, it would fail, but it worked.

Yes, it works like i said, but its a very soft and week scan procedure so you did that right after...and it worked but most of the other times it doesnt go like this.

What im sure is that i used recuva with several computers so i could recover, and none found the files or even reminiscent traces of them. I was about to stop trying cause i trusted cccleaner free products, and i tried with my good old Getdataback for example, and BAMMM they were there...i couldnt beleive.

Im just reporting for cases that this recuva wont work...its goona be very common cases !

Thanks for replying

It's a nice program but Recuva is not pronounced "recover". I'm sorry but it's not. If you want it to be pronounced that way then rename the program Recover (which I recommend as recuva is a stupid name).

How would you find a data recovery program called "Recover" on Google? It would be almost impossible.

If it was a popular program it would be in the top few results, and who uses Google to find programs anyway? "Piriform Recover", not that hard though.

Unfamiliar with English accents?

How would new users find it? They won't know the company who makes Recuva is called Piriform. If you think like a typical user and you will see that it's quite difficult to find a program named after a common English word.
