Usually the software can recover the files that are in "excellent" condition (without overwritten sector). But sometimes, even when the software displays at the end of the so-called recovery that everything was fine, it can be completely wrong (all files are scrambled and can't be opened), so you must verify manually the results.

NB : this software is fast only without deep scan

It takes hours to scan and gets preview only. Need to buy license to restore data!

Don't waste your time with Easeus Data Recovery Wizard, FreeUndelete, Recuva, or Wondershare Data Recovery. In his review of PhotoRec, Anamon called Christophe Grenier a "hero". I disagree. Christophe Grenier is a superhero! Give him all the donations!

Free version does not actually work now. You need a paid version to restore the found files.

recuva and broken hard drives

about Recuva and TestDisk Sep 2011

Just to let you know that recuva is indeed a good software, but in my case it wasn't able to scan a broken/defectuous hard drive (recuva just hang), where [TestDisk](Small TestDisk iconTestDisk) was able to perform a full recovery.


I just finished recovering over 1TB of data! Recuva got it ...

I just finished recovering over 1TB of data! Recuva got it all including files deleted long ago that I didn't want, I didn't feel like looking through the list of all the files so I just chose to restore them all. The only files it didn't get were files deleted and written over long ago. It'd be nice if there were a way to get a report of what can't be recovered, but you can see all those files by clicking the comment column. This is a great program, 2 thumbs up!!
