A very handy recovery wizard takes all the guesswork out of finding your files. All you have to do is select they type of file you want to recover (photos, emails, videos, etc.) and where it’s likely to be (recycle bin, on a media card, etc.). As soon as Recuva’s finished, you’ll see a list with all the recoverable files, which you can sort in several ways or search with a customizable filter tool. Then simply select the files you want to recover and you’re ready to go.
Obviously Recuva is just a software tool and can’t perform miracles. The sooner you use the program after deleting files, the more chance you have of recovering them. Also, try saving them to a different drive: it improves the success percentage.
If you’ve accidentally deleted some important files, don’t freak out: try using Recuva and you’ll probably be able to restore them!
