Recuva v1.31

Elton John may have sung the virtues of a Pinball Wizard, but we're going to start touting Recuva as an email wizard.

The word is spreading that the latest versions of Recuva can be used to recover deleted emails from Thunderbird, Outlook Express, and Windows Mail. That's right - even if you deleted an email from your email program's Trash folder, you should be able to recover it with Recuva.

The main change for this release is that we've added support for email recovery right in the Recuva wizard. On the File Type pane, you'll see that you can now select Emails as a type of file to recover.

As a quick recap: When Recuva finds deleted emails, it gathers them up into a compressed file (called 'Thunderbird Emails.zip' or similar, depending on your email program). You can unzip this file, which contains the emails as .EML files -- one for each email. Most email programs enable you to re-import these EML files.

Even if you don't use the Wizard, you can still search for deleted emails by selecting Emails in the Filename or path drop-down box. Give it a try!

The full change log is below:

  • Added email recovery to Wizard.
  • Improvements to Thunderbird email recovery.
  • Improved handling of very large exFAT drives.
  • Various stability fixes in 64-bit version.
  • Updated installer to allow Recuva to run at the end.
  • Added Estonian language support.

Recuva v1.30

The previous version of Recuva brought recovery of deleted emails for users of Mozilla Thunderbird. With v1.30, we've extended that support to Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail.

Normally, when you delete an email, it is moved into the email program's Trash or Deleted Items. But what happens when you empty these and then need that email back?

No problem - Recuva's got you covered! If you're using the Recuva Wizard, select "Other" as the File Type. In the results window, switch to advanced view and select Emails from the filter drop-down. If Recuva has recovered deleted emails, they will be contained in ZIP files in the form: Thunderbird emails.ZIP. Restore this ZIP file, and you'll find your deleted emails, sorted by folders. The emails are in the .EML format, which most email programs can read. Double-click an EML file to view the email in your default email program. Depending on the program, you may also be able to import the EML files back into the program's database.

The full change log is below:

  • Added recovery of emails from Outlook Express.
  • Added recover of emails from Windows Mail.
  • Added 'Email' filter.
  • Fixed bug that could cause secure delete to fail in list view.
  • Various bug fixes.

Defraggler v1.13


Perking right along through the heat of summer, the dev team has released the latest version of Defraggler. We've got a couple of new features, performance improvements, and the usual bits and bobbles.

1. Command-Line Quick Defrag

The last version of Defraggler (v1.12) introduced Quick Defrag, a drop-down selection in the main Defraggler window you can use to run a much faster, though slightly less efficient defrag.

For those of you running Defraggler from the command line, you can now instruct it to use the Quick Defrag option. Here's the syntax:

df.exe [file or filemask or folder or drive label] /QD

To see all of the command-line options, type df.exe /? at a command prompt, or see this topic:

2. Folder Index entries

Microsoft Windows stores information about files in folders in a hidden file called the folder index. For example, if you create a file in a folder, that folder's index will contain the filename, creation timestamp, an archive bit, and more.

Advanced users may want to view folder index entries in the file list viewable after you analyze a drive.

To set folder index entries as viewable, click Settings, then click Options… On the General tab, click Show folder index entries in file list, and then click OK.

The folder index entries will show up as [Folder Entry] in the list.

Download Defraggler now!

Here's the full list of changes:

  • Added quick defrag to command line version.
  • Added option to view folder index entries in file list.
  • Fixed bug related to excessive GDI objects.
  • Fixed tab issue in search tab.
  • Improved speed of moving very large files to the end of the drive.
  • Several minor bugs fixed.
