Recuva is created by the software developers Piriform, who are also responsible for the popular CCleaner PC cleaning tool. It has an attractive interface with high quality.
Recuva has a built-in wizard (optional) that guides you through the steps of recovery every time you want to recover data.
It is relatively easy to learn to use as you just answer the questions the Wizard asks. Questions like data type, area to scan and type of scan. Most of the time a normal scan is enough, but deep scan is also available. This takes more time but increases the possibility of recovering data.
You can recover data such as Pictures, audio (mp3), documents, videos, compressed files and emails from any storage device Windows can read such as digital cameras and Hard disk drive (HDD’s).
Price: Free version (which is enough for data recovery) and a Paid version for $24.95 (advanced file recovery, virtual hard drive support, automatic updates, premium support).
Compatibility: Win 10/8/7/Vista/XP
