A very easy-to-use file undelete utility from Piriform


Our rating: 


Pros & Cons:

Easy to use interface, good recovery times.
Lacking some features available to MiniTool Power Data Recovery.

Our Review:

Recuva is a very easy to use file undelete utility from Piriform which does exactly what it says on the can. Interface is very user friendly and it only took couple of clicks to get my data back. It has recovered 1GB in 87 seconds.

However, it only works great on straight forward recovery. I found that after formatting the disk, deep scan could only locate and recover 19 files out of 106.

Seems the website listed for Recuva is accidentally copy-pasted from MiniTool Power Data Recovery, which was the top pick from the associated "Best of" article.

Thanks for pointing this out. It has now been corrected. MC - Site Manager.
