Recovering files

This happens to everyone at some point… a hard disk crashes and now you want to restore some files from it.

One utility I use is Recuva.


Even if you've formatted a drive so that it looks blank, Recuva can still find your files on it.

Keep in mind that restoring files is always a bit of luck and sometimes you are just out of luck.

For more recovery tools see also:

For the real professionals among us, I would advice Testdisk. This is more for recovering lost partitions and if you are really interesting in getting deeper into data recovery check out

I hope you will be able to recover what you were looking for.

Good luck!
