Is FileWing Pro better than Recuva?

FileWing Pro is being offered free until New years Eve but really seems to be free all the time, I have Recuva free so is this offer any better?

You will only want either if you have to recover files that have been deleted or have problems on the hard drive. I don't use either as I don't have those problems. If you are getting those problems then if it is hard drive then the cause needs to be investigated.

As Woolwell said, however if your reason to get one is to keep it in case it's needed. Or just because - like me - you're a freeware junkie. Then why not get them both. Then if you need one you can find out which one is better and ditch the other.

graphicool you are right, I don't remember the last time I lost? erased a file I needed but always like to know that something is there should I need it.

As nobody seems to have used it (it came from another thread) then I will stick with Recuva and , of course, Acronis.

As a freeware junkie, graphicool, I don't suppose you have a free way into Photoshop?
