What do you like best?

When faced with lost data, Recuva is the first method I turn to, whether it has been deleted by accident, by a malicious act or by the operation of a virus or that the data has been compromised, as long as this information has not been overwritten by new data, Recuva helps me to perfectly restore them as if the inconvenience has not passed. Recuva provides an interface that is easy-to-use and very intuitive. For those who are not specialists in the use of this sort of program or need a rapid search, Recuva gives us an aided search modality, but Recuva not only has this modality, but also provides us with the specialized search modality where a customized and deep search can be done, which would take a larger amount of time to perform it. One of the things I like best about restoring Recuva is that I can filter it by the form of data or file, and Recuva can show me a list of matches, but I'm the one who chooses which of all the data I'm going to restore that Recuva returns to me, depending on the situation, I can select between one file or several files. Recuva tells us the state of the file from excellent to unrecoverable for cases in which files have been rewritten with new details. Recuva gives us a pop-up dialog to display the search status. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The time it takes for deep searches is considerable, but I am mindful that retrieving an already lost file is a delicate process and that it stays intact. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recuva is the best program to restore deleted files, the assisted search allows you to do an initial search that takes less time, but the deep search performs an exhaustive search which will take you longer before finishing the search. Recuva allows you to recover all types of files without limitations, you just have to consider that the longer time that passes after the file is deleted, there is a greater probability that the file you want to restore has already been rewritten, which will make it difficult to restore total or even partial. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There has been more than one instance with Recuva in which I have felt the need to retrieve data that has been lost by my own hand or also by other parties, there have even been times where security program (antivirus and similar) has deleted other data by default that I don't really want to be deleted and that's when I have to revert to using Recuva to restore the deleted data.

Recuva helps me to restore files that I have deleted by mistake or that have been maliciously deleted, regardless of the form of file or its extension, preferably as long as it hasn't been long before the file I want to recover was deleted. As long as other new data has not been rewritten by the sector of the hard disk that contains it. Recuva is a very basic and very effective program that allows us the option not to give up any data that we thought was missing. We may use Recuva to inspect the device or more precisely, the directory where the data or file(s) were located. That we'd like to recover. Not only does Recuva allow me to scan for multiple drives on my PC, but it also allow me to analyze and recover files and data from removable drives, such as pen drives, mp3, mp4, micro SD memories, etc. I can also recover lost files as a removable disk from an Android device. Recuva also provides me a compact version that doesn't need to be mounted on my PC, but on one of my removable devices I can have the program and run it from there. Recuva is a miracle of restoring the files that I accidentally lost, important and fragile details that I can recover with Recuva. Recuva has a variety of languages available, so I can pick one of my favorites, which is English by default. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As far as the Recuva program is concerned, it is important to take into account that the review period for locating the data increases when reviewing hard drives or computers with a high storage space and a large number of files and folders. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is always recommended that you have the Recuva app at hand because you don't know when you may need it in an emergency, and for these cases, Recuva is the method par excellence. If you don't have it installed on your computer or laptop, don't worry because you will download it when you need it just have an internet connection to download it to your computer or laptop, you can also download the compact edition and preferably keep it on your removable unit or store it in your tablet or smartphone memory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recuva helps one to restore data that has been removed improperly or by malicious software execution or an antivirus bug. I was able to restore images, documents, presentations, audio files that I had inadvertently lost, and others, or that other people were able to remove while using the PC by mistake.

Recuva claims to recover files from any rewriteable media like SD Cards, external hard drives, pen drives etc. I have experienced it first hand on my external hard disk drive of 500 GB from which it had recovered all my files of 210 GB content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though Recuva is a very good recovery tool for free, it is very slow and takes quite a lot of time in scanning and recovering the files. Since it is FREE, you can't complain about it being a slow tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those considering use of Piriform Recuva, I would like to just express my opinion that if you have time and patience to get your files back from a crashed drive for FREE it is a very good tool you can have. If you can afford, you can go for PRO version of this tool, but I can't say about it because I have not yet tested the PRO version of Recuva. If I get a chance, I would definitely like to have a go at the PRO version and then I can have my opinion on it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My external hard disk had crashed out of the blue and I had nearly lost all of my photos, videos and other data on my external hard drive. Since the HDD is not very old (it's about 2.5 years old) and not extensively used, there was little chance of a physical damage. I had read reviews of good file recovery tools but the other tools were a bit costly for my needs. So I chose to try Recuva and I am happy that I got all my files back (well, 95% of them actually).

When you are in a bind for data recovery, and you do not have the normal tools you utilize with you, Recuva is readily available and did a surprisingly good job. If you have never pursued data recovery Recuva is incredibly easy to use as well. We have wound up using Recuva in multiple situations where, in the past, we might have felt there would be too much time invested to make it worthwhile. I would recommend this to anyone in a situation where they need to recover any type of files. I make sure to have it with me on a flash drive now, since it has been so useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am not sure that I encountered anything I did not like about Recuva. They have kept it incredibly simple which is the reason I did not find anything to really dislike. We can always want software to run faster, but processing just takes time and we have to be patient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if you are in a data recovery situation, I would definitely use Piriform Recuva because of all that it has done for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We recovered some critical data files that were "accidentally" deleted but incredibly essential to what we were doing. It saved us from investing hours to recreate the information we could, and some of the information would have been lost for good. Since then, we have used it in a lot of small recoveries since it was so easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is possible to recover files in just 20 minutes each. Shows a breakdown of the possible recoverable files. You have an option to select recoverable file types such as images, audios, documents, emails and videos. You have the option to do the remote backup and can be scheduled. With good encryption and great level helping to decrypt encrypted files almost impossible to recover. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have no negative points to mention. The product has always met all the company's needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it because it is easy to use and easily retrieves files, saving time, which I didn't find in other software. It is a very useful tool and can be used in mobile devices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The company needed to recover a large number of files that had been lost. With Recuva we were able to recover these files safely and we started backing up weekly, thus reducing the possibility of data loss in the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Out of all the recovery software I tried, Recuva definitely stood out for its simplicity and efficiency in recovering data I thought was lost. The interface is very easy to use, it has advanced and quick recovery options. It even recovered thousands of files perfectly from a completely formatted system. I like how it shows whether a file is fully recoverable, partially recoverable, or unrecoverable. It runs on low-end systems pretty well too. I also like that it shows the files scanned up until you stop the scan. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The recovery scanning process consumes too much time and energy. An advanced scan takes hours even on small disk spaces. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking to recover data and lost files, Recuva is the best bet. Make sure your system is fully charged or under constant power supply as advanced recovery can easily drain power. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding lost data files is sometimes a must especially when you don't have a recent backup. The benefit I found and really liked is that you're provided a huge list of data to recover. You select what you want and voila. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's free, but capable and not bundled with crapware or ads (the last thing you need when trying to recover something). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It lacks some advanced features like being able to recover partial files anyway, perform block-level recovery, or search for custom extensions within a directory (without finding everything in that directory). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Maybe consider a CLI interface so it could be integrated with certain automated backup solutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accidentally deleting a file allows me to recover it, as long as:

- I run this tool very soon after deleting the file and don't perform any more file copies on the disk where the file was deleted

- The deleted file isn't very large. I had no luck recovering a virtual machine .vmdk that was inadvertently deleted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The scans are fast and don't take ages to complete, which helps especially if your Hard drives are huge. It also isn't very resource-heavy draining little CPU power. It offers a free version which is good enough for simple recoveries and to know if you want to buy the full version. In line with some of other better options, it shows the preview screen before finalizing whatever action one chooses after the scan is completed Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am not sold on the interface. It works and is fine, but could be updated and more user friendly. But it is not a big worry at all. You will probably use it once or so every now and then.

The deep scans I run when files aren't found in simple one, take a very long time and that too sometimes goes fruitless as no relevant files are found. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not any problem per se, I was able to recover the files I needed. The few I couldn't, I was also unable to recover using few other (free) recovery software I,e, EaseUS Data recovery and Wondershare's recovery software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Sometimes it can block things behind a paywall that most users don't want to pay, but I understand that this is a business and they have to make money somehow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try as this software can be very helpful and likely find all missing or accidentally deleted files unless the user went out of their way to remove them, reformat and then write over but even then it would be unlikly that the specific data would be written over so it still ends up finding it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not much that I dislike Recuva only that most of the time it shows too many useless files which makes the search process can take much longer than calculated which ends up being somewhat annoying and desperate especially when there is little time which is my case of rest there is nothing else that I dislike all the functions are easy to use and works without problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Recuva because it is a reliable data recovery software that helps you recover lost files or hard drive partitions etc, this is one of the affordable software in the market for data recovery.

Piriform Recuva offers the possibility of recovering damaged files or files that have been mistakenly deleted from your computer. Piriform Recuva does what it promises, I like the interface because it is simple and intuitive, just choose which type of file to search for and, if so, in which disk to do it. Piriform Recuva will do the rest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Piriform Recuva is available in a free or paid version, needless to say that the most interesting features are usable are activating a license for the paid product version. Furthermore the time for the complete scan is very long. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

to get the most interesting features you need to switch to the paid mode. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Piriform Recuva è un software molto valido, Piriform Recuva è leggero e potente allo stesso tempo. Piriform Recuva mi piace specialmente per la sua semplicità di utilizzo. Non bisogna essere utenti esperti per usarlo, infatti basta selezionare la partizione o le partizioni dove cercare e cosa cercare ed il gioco è fatto, se hai cancellato inavvertitamente qualcosa è molto probabile che Piriform Recuva sia in grado di ripristinare i tuoi dati.

Piriform Recuva ha anche alcuni aspetti che vorrei fossero migliorati. Per prima cosa l'aspetto economico, seppur la versione gratuita è già abbastanza buona, serve spendere dei soldi ed acquistale la versione premium per sbloccare le migliori funzionalità. Piriform Recuva è utilizzabile solo su ambienti microsoft windows, quindi non sarà possibile usarlo da macchine con sistema operativo apple mac os oppure linux.
