"I have try a couple of undelete software and some of them are pretty slow scanning files for recovery. What I like about Recuva is its speed and simple user interface. I don't really need a lot of file recovery so something simple like this is all I need. When I accidentally deleted a file, I just need something fast and simple to recover them. Recuva doesn't have an option to specify what type of files and minimum file size scan. I usually use those option to speed up scanning but without those options Recuva is faster so I don't mind not having those options afterall." - Richard
