Windows 10: Is Recuva safe to use? Solved

    Is Recuva safe to use?

    Last year CCleaner contained malicious code and users were told to restore from a backup and update to the latest version CCleaner.

    I've tried my best to research this issue, and so far haven't found any articles, but is Recuva safe? I'm assuming when the malicious code was discovered and removed, Piriform most likely verified that their other products were clean and safe to download and use, they just haven't said anything. I looked at their blog and it only mentions the security issue concerning CCleaner, but nothing about Recuva.

    Before downloading and using Recuva, I wanted to double check.

    Hi srosemond,
    Welcome to 10Forums :)
    Since Piriform mentions only Ccleaner, you can safely assume any other products are safe.
