We all have come across a situation in our life where we accidently delete some important files. Deletion of any file is easy, just click the “Delete” button and it’s gone. Sometimes the data we deleted is recoverable and sometimes not.
Most of the times, users can recover their deleted data from recycle bin. But, if you have a habit of deleting your data using “Shift + Delete” key like me, or the file you deleted is too big to move in recycle bin, then it is gone. In this case, we require a use of third party Softwares.
Best Data Recovery Software to Undo Your Accidental Deletes
Before writing this post we tested several data recovery Softwares considering various factors like – speed, capacity to restore, the range of devices, data types which can be recovered and much more. Some of them were good and some of them were bad. Here we have made a list of Softwares which We liked the most. So, without further adieu lets get into it.
Here is a list of Best Data Recovery Software:
What can I say about Recuva! There is a reason why we choose Recuva as the best data recovery Software. It is easy to use but has many advanced features as well.
It works on all the Windows versions from Windows XP including Server 2008/2003. It also works with older versions of Windows like Windows 2000, NT, ME and 98.
It can not only recover deleted files from PC but also from your USB drive, CD Drive, iPod and SD cards. It is free, small in size, fast, it can recover data of any type not matter how big it is.
UndeletePlus is the best data recovery Software if you are willing to pay a couple of bucks. It has a much simpler user interface, it is slightly faster than Recuva and it also provides advanced features like Smart scan and Photo Scan.
It works with Windows 10, 8, 8.1 and 7. It can not only Undelete data from your computer but also from removable media like CD drive, USB drive, and Memory cards.
It can recover files of any data type regardless of its size. But, the only problem with this Software is- it is not free. Don’t get me wrong, though; because It is “money worth spending for” type of Software. We recommend you to use it once then you can decide.
