Microsoft newly launched Windows File Recovery app is going to be the ultimate recovery tool you needed to get back your deleted data.
There is a plethora of file recovery software available on the internet, and it’sit’s a confusing task to fixate on a single tool to assist us in recovering accidentally deleted files. Most of the time, we didn’t get expected results — sometimes, these so-called third-party file recovery tools fail to detect the deleted data. In contrast, even though the tool successfully managed to discover the deleted files, but asks you to upgrade to the paid version to get your data recovered.
But with the launch of the new Windows File Recovery tool, Microsoft has ended the monopoly of third-party recovery software. Now Windows users can use this tool to recover any accidentally deleted files — photos, documents, videos, and more.
Windows File Recovery is a command-line based app available on Microsoft Store, and the app requires Windows 10 build 19041 or later. So first, check your Windows version before installing the tool.
