Photo recovery software - Recuva

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by David J Taylor, Sep 20, 2010.

  1. Just had to get some pictures back of a card I accidentally formatted.
    Used Recuva and got all the images back. It did need the "deep scan"
    mode, though.

    Recommended!

    It's free.

    Cheers,
    David

    Yeah, it's a good bit of software. Surprising what old file names it drags
    out of the MFT table too.

    You can use Directory Snoop to purge the MFT
    if you want to rid those old names of deleted files.

    I'm surprised Piriform haven't added the option to purge the MTF without
    doing a freespace wipe in CCleaner yet.

    Because the CCleaner FSW takes so long, I never use it.
    Does it actually overwrite the MFT entries too?
    Maybe I'll have to try it. I also use defraggler.

    Yeah, there's a tick box under Options > Settings, that's un-ticked by
    default I think.

    Would be good if Piriform also introduced right click file/folder delete, or
    maybe allow you to drag and drop files/folders into the "include" window to
    add them.

    That's kind of coincidental! For details, see my following message:

    You can rather try with excellent image recovery software for photo recovery on Windows. If you are looking to get an effective photo recovery tool, just text me out, I can suggest you the tool.
