    Wonderful utility! It will be very supportive to the people who lost their files. 2 days before I lost some of my pictures from hard drive and I want to get them back. Will your software support me to recover my pictures? I heard about Remo Recover tool also and it is also a perfect tool to recover deleted data.

    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.
