How to recover deleted files from your computer:

I have talked about file recovery tools in this blog some time ago, I discussed how we can use restoration to recover deleted files. But today I am writing about a different program that is even easier to use.

Recuva: Recuva was developed by Piriform a privately ownnerd software company based in the UK. They developed  great software applications like CCleaner, Recuva, Defraggler and Speccy. If you have ever  used any of their products you will see how good they are. I have used almost all the above listed software applications and I love them all. That’s why I am recommending their product any time any day, anywhere.

Recuva is a freeware file recovery program that can help one recover deleted files even from the recycle bin. This program can help you recover deleted files from your iPod, memory cards, MP3 players and even USB flash drives.

Recuva has a very simple interface that makes it very easy to use for anyone even a newbie in computer. You can use the type of file option to search for specific type of files, for example if you are searching for a video, it won’t bother looking for other files that are not videos that way you spend less time and effort finding what you are searching for.  Recuva can run from a USB thumb drive and can restore all file types.
