Data Recovery : Two Simple And Effective Free Programs

The number of technologies that insure the user against data recovery loss in all possible ways will soon be compared with the number of users themselves. And, nevertheless, the necessary files, despite the presence of a basket and the possibility of backup, continue to be deleted with amazing persistence. The deletion history of each desired file is unique in its own way. The task facing every unlucky user is always the same – if possible, to fully restore the lost control over valuable information.

We will tell you in our article how to recover data on your own if a familiar guru categorically refuses to communicate on professional topics on a weekend, and the nearest service will open no earlier than Monday.

The eternal problem :

The computer file system, like mother nature, does not tolerate emptiness. When a file is spontaneously deleted, as a rule, its name is deleted from the file system – the header, Twitter data about its location on the media. So it turns out that the file seems to be there, but it exists in incognito mode. Until such time as new information has been written over the file, the ability to restore its “official status” remains in force. For this, programs of various efficiency are written, such as those to which our article is devoted.

Important: After detecting the loss of the necessary files, before recovering them, close all running programs that write data to the drive where the lost files were placed – Ares, BitTorrent, etc., since it is possible to write data over deleted files with the final loss of the latter.

So, a timely backup was not made, the disk was accidentally formatted, the files were erased, the data was lost. We will try to find a way out using reliable and proven updated data recovery utilities. As a rule, all such programs are available in Download and Professional versions, and the features of free versions in many cases are quite enough to solve common user problems.

Data Recovery

We will not consider the special status and possibilities of paid programs of the “R-STUDIO” level for network administrators, system engineers and system analysts now.

The work of the recovery wizard is extremely simplified, which will allow anyone who has minimal knowledge of their native language to cope with the settings. The utility scans the selected areas and displays the results, including the path, name, file type, expected recovery forecast. Note that the probability of recovering overwritten files is vanishingly small.

In the new version of Recuva 1.52, tadpoles from Piriform have added support for the ext4 file system under Linux. Now the utility supports ext2, ext3 and ext 4. The program processes standard NTFS and FAT for Windows quickly and with pleasure, while in 1.52 when scanning, you can use in-depth analysis capabilities, which increases the likelihood of recovery. In addition to the Russified version, an impressive list of foreign localizations is provided.
