The Science of Recovery Softwares: Best 3 In The Business

Deleting a file accidentally from system is perhaps a common blunder that many people commit, but what pinches you hard on the nerve is when you delete a relatively more important file or folder from your computer.

      However, there is not much to worry as computer scientists have devised ways using common operating systems’ deletion techniques, to un delete a file, and surprisingly, not many of the computer users know this fact.


      The Science Behind It

      Did you ever wonder why it takes a considerable amount of time to copy a 10 Gig file on disk and only like 1 second to delete it? Well, that is because the deletion process in Windows and many Other OS does not actually delete each and every bit of the file from disk, but just removes its entry from the Master File Table (MFT – which has the records of every file on disk).


      The Science of Recovery Softwares: Best 3 In The Business


      What the recovery softwares do is that they scan not the MFT, but the actual surface of the disk and so are able to locate the files which may have been deleted from the MFT. The reason why names of the deleted files are not recovered is because the names are saved in the MFT entry of that particular file.


      So, let’s take a look at some good, probably the best available free, data recovery software.

      1) Recuva

      Multimedia Preview, file Information and file header details


      Recuva also gives a live preview of the deleted files (that can be recovered), after scanning. Since, file names aren’t recovered, this file preview feature helps in identifying the file and it extremely helpful therefore. It also provides file information and file header info along with the preview.

      Searching For A Particular File Type
