Just tried it, v1.42. Copied an executable on a drive, deleted it (shift+delete), run Recuva, select *.exe as filter, scan took 10 seconds, found the file I just deleted, highlights it with a green icon (it found really old files as well, but highlighted them red as I'd expect), click on it, recover to my C drive, I'm told the file is recovered successfully, run the exe from the C drive and it works.
So works as advertised, nice easy interface, quick scan, and reliable colouring of the recoverable files.
I can't think of any reason to deduce any points, so it gets a 5.

Pros: Nice UI. Pretty quick scan (except deep scan). I think it works like most other free recovery software.
Cons: First of all, you can't alter and save filter presets. In case for example you're looking for document files but the document file type is not included in the preset, you have to append it in filter box. And then the filtering process can be TERRIBLY SLOW. Moreover, you can't save the list of files found in case you need to resume work later. You have to redo the scan again.
Overall: OK if your hard drive isn't too big.

It has worked fine the few times I've used it.
