One of the most disappointing things is to power up the computer only to find that the file that is needed has been accidentally deleted. In some cases, someone can even delete the file intentionally only to realize later that it was an important file. Once this happens, the majority of people run to the recycle bin to see if the file is still there and should it be missing, that becomes the end of the matter.
This should not be the cases as there is free data recovery software that can be used to recover deleted files. The reason for this is that any deleted files can still be found somewhere in the computer and with the software ‘undeletes’ the file. This article gives a description of some of the free software that is available.
Recuva tops this list as it has been the most highly rated recovery software. To start with, it is very easy to install and comes with a very user friendly user interface. Upon inspection, the software reveals that it has so much more advanced settings that make using it even better.
It is able to recover lost data files from iPods, memory cards, flash drives and hard drives. To make it even better, the software works very well with Windows 7, 8, Vista and XP. The biggest plus of Recuva is its ease of use.
This is another one of the free data recovery software that has been said to have the most unique user interface. It does not disappoint once a person decides to use it as it works just as well. It is unique in that it has an easy exploration feature that shows a list of deleted files that are potentials for recovery. In addition to this, the software shows how likely complete recovery is possible.
Glary Undelete will recover any lost file from all sorts of drives including thumb drives.

This installation feature is the only reason why this software is not highly ranked but it works very well once installed.
