Who hasn’t deleted a file by mistake, with most unpleasant consequences, like losing hours of work? Until now, Microsoft didn’t have a Windows utility to recover them. That’s why the release of the Windows File Recovery tool, which works with the latest Windows versions (20H1, 2004 and 19041), is most welcome. Unlike most third-party utilities, it only works as a command line app, but it’s still very easy to use. It can handle internal and external drives (NTFS or ReFS), as well as USB sticks and SD cards (FAT, exFAT). You’ll need a separate storage capability, for example a USB key, to restore your files.
