    I like this software and have used it a couple of times to recover files I have deleted by mistake. I also love the other offerings from the software company. CCleaner and Defraggler.

    A very very handy app. I’ll recommend everyone to download this as it may be needed any time.

    With such apps, I can even recover files deleted from USB drive which don’t go to recycle bin. One caution – attempt recovery immediately after the file is deleted.

    Seems to be a nice application. Right now I prefer PC Tools’ File Recovery software for this purpose.
