  1. Recuva Professional, questions

    Ok I read the documentation, but I want to make sure I can do what I want. 1. Can I run RP to find just my documents first and then go back and look for photos. 2.) How do I keep RP from overwriting my HD or files. My main concern, I do not want it to overwrite anything, maybe in case I have to search again at a later time. 2.) Is it better to run RP from a wizard standpoint or deep scan. (your opinion) I understand what both do. 3.) And is there anything that I can do just so I see tyhe green files that are good, if it is unrecoverable I don't want to see it. Thank you
  2. Well I am going to start to recover some files. First my documents. Then my photos. What is the best or correct way to achieve getting all my files, can I do the documents first and then the photos. Or do I have to do everything I want at once. How can I get the best or good files to open so I don't have the painstakingly task of clicking on every file I want to recover. I used Recuva Free once, I thought maybe Professional does more for me. Please let me know what to do. I haven't even registered it with the license in my email yet. Thank you. Please if you know what to do exactly, I would appreciate someone who has done this before or someone from Piriform, don't want educated guesses. Need to recover top secret files, no not really. Just need my documents and photos of my son. Thank you. Also can I leave it running in the morning and let it run its course and then when I get home, will it be ready for me to go through?
  3. Simple fastest way to get specific files

    well thank you everyone, i think i got it. i recovered my photos into a folder of their own, left Recuva open. at the top then went to music and recovered them to another folder of their own, and have to do documents now. thank you for the advice and help
  4. Simple fastest way to get specific files

    So what i am after I assume, it is best if i recover all my photos and send them to a specific folder, then go back and recover documents send them to another folder and then send my music files to another folder. When i do recover all the files, i am just trying to cut down on going through the recover file and sorting out everything.
  5. I am using Recuva free, only because I don't know if the paid version would do any better. What i want to do is find my documents first, .odt, pdf is mostly what i used. and i want to know is there a way that i can get these files first and only these files. then i want to do mp3 files and those only, then photos and those only so that when i recover them, i can recover them and put them in a file by their specific files. is there a way to do this.
