  • recover from formatted drive

    Recovery Data from damaged or formatted disks

    Windows users a hidden index on hard drives, USB drives and memory cards. Instead of having to search through the entire drive for a file you request, all it has to do is look it up in the index -- that's much faster. If the index is damaged, Windows can not find your files anymore, even if the files themselves haven't been corrupted. Recuva can still find your files on it.

    • The dreaded hard drive crash. The file you forgot to backup before you reformatted a drive. The camera memory card with your holiday snaps that no longer works. That's Recuva comes in.
    • Recuva can scan all parts of a drive, looking for the bits that make up your files. If a drive's index has been damaged, chances are other parts of the drive may have been damaged too. Recuva will show you a list of files it has found on the drive, and give you an estimate of the likelihood of success of recovering them.
    • Similarly, when you format a drive (especially if you use the Quick Format option), Windows erases the hidden index but does not overwrite the existing files until you start saving new data to it. Recuva can still scan the drive's contents to find your files.
  • Quick and Deep Scan

    Quick-Start Wizard and Deep Scan

    For beginning and intermediate users, Recuva has a quick-start Wizard that guides you through the process of recovering your files. Recuva can find most files within a minute. Or, set the Deep Scan to look for more deeply-buried results.

    • Recuva's default quick scan will run through a large hard drive for deleted files in seconds. If you're looking for a file you recently deleted, or a file that's not on a damaged or corrupted drive, you should try the default scan first. It's fast and will find your file 90% of the time. If time is critical, this is the choice for you.
    • On the other hand, not every deleted or damaged file is easy to find. Some of them take a bit more digging. Recuva's Deep Scan option helps you find even more files buried on your hard drive or removable drives. It takes longer but it's worth it.
