    Recuva is a file restoration utility, TestDisk is a partition restoration utility. They perform different functions entirely.

    Recuva also phones home regularly and is a general securily risk due to this 'feature'.

    pros, cons and recent comments

    Because I used Four times and it did work perfectly. In fact, One time the flash drive that I was trying to recover data from was so damaged that it did NOT mount automatically, but, the ddrescue program managed successfully to fetch HUGE amount of data from that very damaged/corrupt flash drive. I would give 9/10.

    I have recovered data from my USB drive which was accidentally damaged by diskpart /clean command. File and folder structure was retained to another drive after the recovery. Its free for personal use. I give it a 10/10 score.
