Recuva is one of the best programs to recover files. It’s developed by Piriform, the same company behind CCleaner, the popular software to optimize the performance of Windows.
Well, if you need to use this tool on a computer on which you don’t have any permissions to install software, the best thing you can do is download Recuva Portable, which is also free. With this app that you can download from Malavida and carry around on a USB stick as an emergency tool, you can recover all those files deleted accidentally from a computer.
With a really simple interface it provides us with a series of functions that can be very useful at critical moments, especially when face up to the loss of sensitive information:
- Recovery of files from hard drives, memory cards, external disks, USB sticks, cameras…
- Recovery from damaged disks.
- Deep scans.
- Security deletions: make sure nobody can find what you’re deleting.
As we mentioned above, this program can be downloaded totally free of charge although it also offers us a PRO version with an advanced file recovery system that also incorporates advantages such as the compatibility with virtual disks.
