need to recover a word file

Recommended Posts

I  used a rival companies program to find the deleted word file from my hard drive but it only confirmed it existed , I would have to pay £74 to get fully working program to retrieve the document.

I saw some videos of recuva on you tube but they did not cover the bits I wanted to do they were pen drive recovery examples.

Can somebody please give me a step by step guide on how to recover word documents that I need to get back ( only 3 important ones ) , they will be on my c drive

Recuva (https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva) works on your internal drives and portable drives.  In most cases, simply clicking through the screens will get you what you need.  If that doesn't recover it on the first try, https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/recuva/introducing-recuva has a complete guide to all of the options.

£74 seems rather steep - but I suppose someone has to pay for the advertising those companies do.  Note that Recuva will recover your files for free (for non-commercial home users, that is - businesses all need to pay for Piriform products).  That being said, if you feel it has saved something important you are more than welcome to pay the £19.95 price-tag.

Some charge which seems like a very high amount if they can for instance write new file headers into files. Not defending the one the OP tried, but I've seen at least an two occasions over the years where the price was claimed to cover the licensing the developer has to pay for the ability to write particular file headers.
