USER REVIEWS

A file recovery software that appears to do what it’s designed to do

Personally, I’ve tried several “file recovery” software through the years, hoping to recover an important file or two that I have accidentally deleted. However, some of them were only partially successful and some I’m not even sure worked at all. There were software that only recovered a few files. There were also that appeared to be searching for the file (according to the displayed text) but with the absence of a status bar, I was not sure whether it actually worked at all. In exasperation, I stopped the search after several hours with not a single result.

File Scavenger is one of those software that I’ve tried and it worked quite well. The software’s user interface is simple and straightforward. Menu options are positioned up top and the process is on the main interface. All you need to do is type the filename of the file that you want to recover and specify the location where you want the software to search in. Once the software recovers a deleted file, it also displays the original filename, the folder path and the date. What’s great about File Scavenger is that it not only searches for deleted files but it can also help you recover deleted partitions. You can also recover deleted files from hard disks, flash drives and even memory cards.

All in all File Scavenger 4.2 is a great file recovery software that you should have in your software toolkit at all times. Truly a very useful download.
