Free File Recovery Program

Microsoft Windows File Recovery is a free tool that allows you to recover files in Windows. It supports all file formats including NTFS, ReFS, FAT, exFAT and allows data recovery from USB devices, hard drives, memory cards . The file recovery tool , which can be used on computers with Windows 10 operating system , works with commands. We can call it a command line tool. So you need to enter certain commands to perform the recovery process.

You can open the Windows File Recovery Tool from the Start menu, PowerShell or Windows Terminal (as administrator) . You can see your options by entering the ” winfr ” command.

With the program, you can retrieve a specific file, a folder, different files depending on the file type or the names using wildcards . The syntax is clear:

winfr sourcefolder: targetfolder: [/ keys]

To recover a specific file from the C: drive and restore it to the external USB drive (E :), enter the command:

winfr C: E: / n \ Users \ UserName \ Documents \ ImportantFiles \ filename.pdf

To restore the folder completely, enter the command:

winfr C: E: / n \ Users \ UserName \ Documents \ ImportantFiles \

Windows File Recovery offers three modes you can use to recover your files: Default, Segment, and Signature (Top Level) . To recover a recently deleted file on the NTFS file system, you can use the default mode as shown above. If you need to recover a file that was deleted some time ago from the NTFS file system or restore a file after formatting the disk, try segment mode first using the / r switch .

winfr C: E: / r / n \ Users \ UserName \ Documents \ ImportantFiles \

If this doesn’t restore your file , or if you need to restore a file from a non-NTFS file system such as FAT, exFAT, or ReFS , you must use signature mode. For example; You can restore the JPEG and PNG photos from your F: drive to the recovery folder on the E: drive. Recovery from SD card etc. enter this command:

winfr F: E: / x / y: JPEG, PNG

There are many more options available to you, and you can find them in the Microsoft Support article.
