Where can an old free copy of Nero be obtained?

My Packard-Bell iMedia D2525 UK came with Win 7 bundled with Nero 6, Nero Express and InCD, but the upgrade to Win 10 got rid of them. I've got Nero projects which will not open without Nero, so I'd appreciate a location from which to download an old free copy. People warn against using download.cnet.com and I've seen a so-called free copy on majorgeeks.com but not rated for Win 10. Any ideas, please?

Hi martd7, thanks for the reference, it's a long time since I've gone to an unknown website for a program and when I went to Nero itself and looked, all I got were programs listed as free, only to find that they were free trials for 15 days each, followed by automatic payments of 40 quid per year or so. Perhaps I'll screw up courage and have a look later.

Hi MJS Warlord, thanks to you too, but I'm afraid that the recovery folder wasn't in the list you recommend and the only folder of that name anywhere on the computer reported itself as empty. I must say that since the change, I won't call it an upgrade, to Win 10 I'm not surprised that remnants of the original Win 7 are no longer present. I presume that if there is a recovery folder it will be one for Win 10 and not 7. I've searched the machine for Nero too with zero results. Thanks again. Rog

Hi griffon56

I have a copy of Nero Express 7, if that's of any use? Happy to post to you, if you'd like
