System requirements

Recuva will run on any PC running Microsoft Windows 98 or later:

  • Windows 7 (all editions, including 64-bit)
  • Windows Vista (all editions, including 64-bit)
  • Windows XP (Home, Professional, Media Center, Tablet Edition, 64-bit)
  • Windows 2003 and 2008 Server (all editions).
  • Windows 2000
  • Windows 98.  (Support for Windows 98 stopped after version 1.31.437.)

If you're running 64-bit Vista or XP, the Recuva installation file will install a 64-bit version of Recuva.

Recuva is a small program that runs fast. There are no minimum memory or hard drive requirements.

Note: Recuva works on NTFS, FAT, and exFAT format drives. Recuva does not currently support Mac OS X or Linux.
