    There’s nothing worse than discovering that you’ve lost files, either because you accidentally deleted them, or even because of a harddrive failure. It happens to most people at some point, and afterward you quickly learn the need to set up some form of sturdy backup solution.

    However, even backups can fail for some reason or another, but whether it’s your first time or if it’s happened before it’s still a horrible situation to face.

    While there are paid-for file recovery solutions available there are also some free ones that might be worth trying out first.

    After all, if you just accidentally deleted some files you needed instead there’s a good chance you’ll be able to recover them from your harddrive and that free data recovery software options might work for you.

    Even still, note that some free data recovery utilities, while well-meaning, may not be powerful enough to do the job for more serious problems. So we’ve put together the best on the market so you can try and see which one works best for you.

    In the meantime, consider backing up to the cloud with one of these cloud backup solutions, to provide better redundancy in future.

    One of the best things about Recuva is the wealth of ways to use it: manual scanning, wizard-driven scanning, and via the context menu.

    For anyone who feels as though they need a little help using the software, the wizard is on hand to provide guidance, but there is also the option of taking manual control of the scanning and recovery process. The scan can be customized to look in particular locations, or for particular types of files, and Recuva uses a traffic light guide to how likely it is that you’ll be able to recover an item intact.

    You also have the option of right clicking a folder or the Recycle Bin if you know you have deleted a file from a particular location. It’s all very easy, and the results speak for themselves.

    Upgrading to Recuva Professional adds the ability to work with virtual hard drives, access to premium support, and automatic software updates. These are nice additions, but the free version of Recuva will be plenty for most users.

    When it comes to ease of use, it’s hard to beat Wise Data Recovery. Although this free data recover software doesn’t have a wizard-led interface, there are no complicated configuration settings to worry about either.

    Tracking down recoverable data is a simple matter of selecting the drive you want to check and clicking ‘Scan’. Alternatively, you can use keywords to search for recoverable files so you don’t have to wade through quite so many results.

    Whichever route you choose, recoverable data is presented in an Explorer-like tree structure that makes it easy to tell where it was originally stored. Like all the best free data recovery software, Wise Data Recovery uses a traffic light system to indicate the health of files (and therefore how likely it is that you’ll be able to recover them intact, and there’s a file preview feature so you can identify files that have been detected.

    You can recover individual files, or entire folders at once, but selecting numerous files in several locations means performing several operations.

    Keeping things nice and simple, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free is the friendly, accessible face of recovering lost files. Fire up the program and you’re presented with a screen asking which drive you would like to scan for recoverable data – you then just need to hit the Scan button. There are no options to configure, but if you know exactly where a file has gone missing from, you can specify a folder to scan to speed things up.
