recoverit data recovery free review from the windows club
"If you have permanently deleted it either using Shift+Delete or from the Recycle Bin, it will be impossible to bring it back. However, you still have a chance of using a photo recovery software – Recoverit – which can restore deleted photos from your Windows PC. It’s a professional data recovery software (8 recovery modes) that performs photo recovery and lets you recover 100MB of data in its free version. You can always choose the paid version for more."

"When my hard-drive was failing I began to go nuts looking all over for some sort of data recovery software that would just help me get a couple extra files back off my hard drive. Not only did Recoverit manage to get back my files, but also got me some recently deleted files as if I never deleted them."

"Wondershare Recoverit is an excellent program! My brand new 64GB Sandisk SD Card used in a Promaster SD Card Reader could not be read by my computer. About 800 photos from our recent trip to NYC were smoothly recovered to my C drive using Recoverit data recovery app."

"It worked very well with my WD Passport Wireless Pro, and recovered almost four thousand files from the backup for a timelapse camera. Probably my mistake in deleting or ctl-x instead of ctl-c but they still existed on the drive. Recoverit is easy to use. Not complicated or technical, a simple and clear interface. Really nice software!"

See What Our Users Ask Frequently

Is Recoverit Data Recovery free?

Recoverit Data Recovery Free is freeware that you can download directly from the official Recoverit site. It allows you to recover up to 100MB of files. If you exceed this recovery limit, you'll need to upgrade to the full edition to retrieve more files.
Yes. Recoverit utilizes the read-only mode. It means that the data recovery wizard will only scan and recover lost, deleted, and formatted data. However, it is not allowed, and you cannot write or edit your files.
The storage structure of the lost files can be altered or damaged by any changes on the drive. If you save the recovered files back to the same drive, the original data structures and data content may be corrupted or overwritten, resulting in permanent data loss. Therefore, it is advisable to use another disk to save the files.
'Quick Scan' performs a faster scan on your selected drive or volume and is suitable for most cases of data loss on Windows-based storage drives. On the other hand, 'Deep Scan' uses a comprehensive file signature-based search to maximize recovery in challenging situations like drive formatting or corruption. It's particularly useful for recovering files not found by 'Quick Scan'.
It strongly depends on the capacity of your hard drive and the performance of your computer. As a reference, most drive recoveries can be completed in around 1 hour for a 100GB healthy hard drive in general conditions.
