The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.4
Recuva is a free file Recovery program from the creators of CCleaner. It is capable of recovering lost or deleted files from local drives and external drives. And with an integrated wizard, users will be guided onto the whole recovery process with ease.
The program’s interface is clean and simple, whether using the wizard or the advanced mode users will find it easy to search for deleted files even if removed permanently from the recycle bin.
If using a modern processor the program’s search speed on normal mode is amazing. There also is a deep scan option which takes a closer, slower and deeper drive scan used in most cases to recover data even from formatted drives. It even has the capability of recovering damaged files; these are non deleted files which have disappeared as the result of crashes or other type of damage.
Recuva offers additional options such as restoring the whole folder structure, exclude zero byte files, show hidden files during scan, and save any settings made for later use. Even though the program doesn’t include any custom filtering it’s one of the best free recovery programs available.


  • Recovers damaged files.
  • Recovers from formatted disks.

  • Wizard makes it easy to use.
  • Free.


  • No filters.
  • Will not recover files deleted with ccleaner.

    How did I find and install this? All of this information is not necessary. All I need to know is exactly how the app is called and how to use it.
