    Software to bring back lost files


    So windows crashed some time ago, and i didnt make a backup of some of my files prior to windows crashing. Does anyone know some good software to get them back, and can i get them back even after reinstalling windows?

    I've read in your posts here that you use Aomei Backupper. If you backed drive images up to external drive(s) you should be able to browse backup images and mount them to recover files by copying them.

    Image File Explore, Existing Partition or Volume

    Note: I use Macrium Reflect currently and don't have Aomei Backupper installed.

    Recuva


    There are many tools for that. Ccleaner makes one call Recuva. See if the app fits your need:

    Recuva - Restore deleted files, even if youve emptied the Recycle bin!

    As usual with free apps, read carefully the installation procedure so that you don't end up with an unwanted application.

    You may also try backing up your file by extracting it to you hdd/ssd by using it as secondary drive.

    Im going to try it out and get back with the results.

    Well i did a deep scan with recuva, but it only found one file that i deleted a few days ago. I also did a test by deleting a useless junk file on my computer to see if recuva could get it back again, but it found nothing.

    I like the layout of the program though.

    Got any other suggestions?

    If Recuva did not work, you are probably out of luck.

    I should probably mention that im specifically looking to bring back a lost rtf file, but i would like a program that can find all sorts of files, as it might become useful some day.

    Im going to see if i can find some better programs. If anyone has some suggestions, please let me know.

    This one of the better recovery programs.

    See if it finds your files first. If it does, then you need to purchase a license to recover them. It is cheaper than most as well.

    Im trying it out right now.

    Okay, so i just did a regular scan. It would only let me search for docx, mp3 and jpg files for some reason. It found about 1,000 files, but im not sure if that also includes files that are already on my computer, because i dont remember deleting that many files.

    I also find the layout of the program to be a bit confusing. Can i somehow type the name of a file i wish to recover, or at least search for it in the results?
