Download of the Day: Recuva (Windows)

Posted on January 22, 2007. Filed under: Recover, Software |

Windows only: Recover deleted files with Recuva, a new utility from the developers who brought you the venerable system-scouring tool CCleaner.

Though currently in beta, the spit-polished program couldn’t be much easier to use. Choose a drive to scan, wait a few seconds while Recuva looks for recoverable files (those that haven’t been overwritten on your hard drive), then review the results. Select the files you want and click Recover. Presto: The lost files return.

Although Recuva seems a little lightweight (it found only seven files on my system, two of them unrecoverable), it could save the day if you’ve accidentally deleted something you desperately need. Plus, the price is right: Recuva is free, so if nothing else it’s worth a try.
