  • Data Recovery Software Roundup -- Don Your Detective Cap and Find Your Missing Data!

    A program that recovers lost data can come in handy once in a while, and this review looks at a lot of different ones, including some free ones.

    Piriform Recuva was the best of the free, and scored a 7 out of 10.


    Data Recovery Software Roundup -- Don Your Detective Cap and Find Your Missing Data!

    Every program in our roundup had no problem running in Vista 64-bit

    Bottom line:

    On the freebie side of the fence, we were most impressed with Piriform's Recuva. The easy-to-follow prompts ensure panicked and inexperienced users will never feel overwhelmed, and the advanced options, including file previews, separate Recuva from the competition.

    Looking at the paid programs, we give the slight edge to Quetek's File Scavenger. Both File Scavenger and Handy Recovery take data restoration to new heights with better scanning and by adding some options not found in any of the freebie apps, but File Scavenger's ability to reconstruct RAID arrays gives it added value. File Scavenger was also the only program in our roundup to correctly identify a file's original name and location after it had been deleted from a non-OS partition, rather than by the cryptic file name the Recycle Bin applies to deleted files. This has the potential to save you a ton of time if you're searching for a specific file.

    I haven't tried Recuva after downloading it the other day. I'm hoping it's more useful than the PhotoRec program I've used in the past for recovering photos.
