Recuva is one of the required tools that a user might want to have installed in his computer if he wants to easily recover files. Data loss is a phenomenon that happens more often that users might think and they should be backed-up by such an application if they want guaranteed access to their deleted or lost files. These files should be recovered as fast as possible in order to prevent them to be overwritten by other files on the disk. If this does not happen, then files can be brought back on the disk with the aid of an app like this one.
The interface is really clean and it provides only the useful options that one might need in order to bring back files. The simplicity of the whole process is given by the fact that a wizard guides the user through the whole recovery process. When it starts, the tool will ask the user to provide a path towards the lost files. If one is not sure about the location, he can scan a whole partition in order to bring back files. Otherwise, he can point towards a more specific location and the results will tend to appear faster.
The scanning button represent the second step of the process and upon clicking it, the wizard will quickly show the deleted files found in the desired location. Each file is accompanied by its path and upon clicking the Advanced tab, users can find more information, such as the size of each file and its deletion date. Recovering is also simple, as the user only has to check boxes in order to select which files should be brought back onto the hard disk. The tool is recommended for both amateurs and professionals that need a quick recovery method for their files.
