This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted by bugs, crashes and viruses.

    Microsoft Windows Vista, XP, 2003, 2000, ME, 98.
    128MB RAM

    This is a beta release.

    Re: Recuva

    This utility is now out of beta.

    I've just downloaded it and used it to recover most of Stuckling1's music collection that he managed to delete from his hard drive and the recycle bin. The general blurb says it can be run from a USB stick but I couldn't find any specific details on how to do this within the applications web pages or even on the Recuva forum but it is trivial.

    Having first downloaded it to my ancient Win 98 box, I installed it to Program Files. I then simply copied the Recuva folder from there to a USB stick, plugged the stick into Stuckling1's shiny Vista laptop and double clicked the .exe. NB I had to log in to Vista as Administrator before it would scan.

    You can get the portable version from http://www.recuva.com/download/builds
    It is a zip file that you extract to the directory of your choice. It is identical to the main version, just does not include an installer.

    I don't think anyone mentioned that version 1.11.257 has been released. Link from the home page Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File Recovery.
