One of the most frustrating things that happen when using a computer is to lose an important document, photograph, or entire file because it was deleted. Most people just throw up their hands, assuming it’s gone forever. That is not true. Recuva is a file recovery system that can bring back all sorts of lost items, even if they’ve been permanently deleted, or lost when a computer crashes.
Piriform, a software developer from the UK that specializes in computer optimization, is responsible for the creation of Recuva. They produce other freeware applications, such as system cleaners and defragmentation software packages. Recuva is an advanced file recovery system that can bring back files from a variety of locations.
Once loaded onto the computer, users can recover lost files from memory cards, external hard drives and other types of file backups. Anything that was accidentally lost, or lost from a system crash can be recovered. This includes pictures, documents, music, videos, or emails.
Most file recovery software performs the basics, but Recuva tools, can bring back lost files and information from damaged or newly formatted disks.
Recuva users have the assurance that any lost file is salvageable. Once the software is downloaded, it can retrieve dozens of file formats including images, music files, videos and even lost emails from email accounts. Recuva searches all rewriteable media, plus hard drives and other types of memory.
Even if the file is difficult to find, the software can dig deep into the computer drive memory to uncover the slightest trace of a lost file.
This is an important feature of Recuva. When the system is presented with two identical files during recovery, it renames duplicates to avoid missing a file, or accidentally replacing something that the user doesn't want to replace.
One of the most frustrating aspects of a computer crash is the loss of directory information. Recuva has the capability to preserve and recover all directory information in the event of a system crash.
There are situations where the user doesn't want any trace of the item left on their computer. Recuva implements secure delete feature that uses industry and military-standard deletion techniques. If the user does want the file erased, it will be gone permanently using this feature.
