    Can anyone recommend a free file recovery program similar to Recuva for Windows, preferably portable.

    These three look promising, EaseUS turn out some good products.

    EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard
    Lazesoft Mac Data Recovery 2.0
    Data Rescue 4.1

    Thanks

    It boots into a dos based gui?, It's quite possible that it could be a linux based gui because of the way it loads up from boot, never bothered to look into that. You simply select which software you want (keyboard arrows) to run and it loads up your selection. Please use it before you make a judgement on how it works.

    Edit: Checked and it does boot from an isolinux image and it can and does run some dos based programs, but they do use some type of a gui. I do not think that I ever had to run a command line on anything using this UBCD. Unless your using Parted Magic which is like a P.E. boot type of O.S. that is also on the UBCD. Parted Magic does has those options if your preferences are to use command lines. I've used UBCD for many years without having to type in a command line.

    I am pretty good with Windows, ok with Linux and totally lost on a MAC. Family member has lashed out on one of these machine but has lost some files, I am applying my MS brain to the problem of restoring the missing docs. I will probably go down the Lazesoft Mac Data Recovery as its free and fully functional and the MAC seems to be working ok other than everything is in the wrong place lol.

    Easiness for operation should be taken into consideration when choose between many similar software as easy operation will definitely boost the whole process for non-professionals and complicated one will make the recovery frustrated.
