Have you ever deleted photos from a memory card and then realized you hadn't copied them to your hard disk or CD?
Or cleaned out the Recycle Bin, then discovered that you needed an important file that you thought you didn't need but now you do?
Yep, me too!
There's a new FREE program that can help with those problems and more . . .
It's called RECUVA (pronounced sort of like "recover") and is available as a FREE download at
A thought just occurred to me . . . perhaps I could send this link to students who email me saying that they completed their assignment but accidentally deleted the file! If their claim is true, this software will allow them to recover it. If it's merely an excuse for not really completing the assignment, a valuable lesson is learned, eh?
