The program has a friendly "wizard"-style set up for finding documents by type (pictures, documents etc.) or an advanced mode to search manually through all deleted files.

This program has saved my butt twice now. The first time was a massive cut and paste operation from a camera flash drive to a hard disk The cut worked, the paste failed and all the .jpg files looked to have been deleted. Recuva saved the day! It got 'em all back. Today a woman pulled the flash card out of the camera hot and whatever happened, it then looked like it wasn't formatted. Neither the computer nor Recuva could find anything. So, we did a quick format and then ran Recuva - viola! All the .jpgs on that flash card (two hours worth of work) were ALL recovered! Talk about a butt-save operation!! Awsome!

Be careful, Recuva can view all deleted and un deleted images even ones on a pass word protected USB drive. So if you think your sensitive images are safe with a pass word just run recuva and you will be able to view all your pass word protected images without using your pass word.

I had high hopes for this program, but alas, when I desperately needed it to work it failed me. The only program that managed to recover everything was EaseUS Data Recovery. None of the free stuff worked, or if it did recover anything it a) was corrupt, or b) couldn't recover the tree structure (after specifically ticking the option to do that). Not being able to recover the documents in their respective subdirectories also makes the program useless.
