There are many different programs on the network. Everyday users install and uninstall different programs. Article by bishonenworks.com. In some cases, for a variety of reasons, there is a system failure and some data can easily be lost. The most important data on our computers are documents, photos, audio and video archives. To prevent yourself from losing important data, it is highly recommended that you make regular backups. And if it happens that the data is lost and there is no backup, Recuva can help. It is a free program for easy recovery of deleted files (whether due to a failure or erroneously deleted by the user).
Working with Recuva is very easy. Immediately after starting up, select the disk from which the files were accidentally (or as a result of a failure) deleted, click on the “Analysis” button, and after a few seconds, you will get a list of all the deleted files on the disk. The files that are no longer recoverable will be highlighted in red. The yellow colour indicates the files that can be partially recovered. And those that can be easily recovered are also marked in green. Next, you need to select the files to be restored by ticking the checkboxes and clicking on the “Restore” button. It’s done. Recovering deleted files takes minutes and sometimes even seconds.
Before you say that you do not need such a program and that if necessary, it will be easy to download it, I want to tell you a little about how the recovery process is going on and what the state of files depends on.
If you delete a file physically from the disk, it will not be deleted. Only a record about it in a special table is deleted (it contains the name of the file and its actual address on the disk). After that, the sectors containing the deleted file are slowly overwritten with new information and after some time the data is lost. In order to prevent overwriting of data and, as a consequence, their final loss, it is strongly recommended not to perform any file operations on the disk (data recording or copying). It is for this simple reason that I recommend that you install Recuva on your computer right now and forget about it until you need it. The size of the program is negligible, so it won’t take up much space. And the benefits it can bring are invaluable. And it can be needed at any time because no one is insured against accidental data loss.
So, make backups and keep Recuva handy. One day it will save your data.
