Severe Bug: Recuva deletes ALL .txt files on D:\ during deinstallation


Recommended Posts

During deinstallation, Recuva deleted ALL *.txt files which I had in the root folder of my D:\ drive!

Thank  god I had a backup, but WTF, are you testing your software? This bug is replicable. I copied some random .txt files to D:, installed and deinstalled Recuva again and the installer even lists all the deleted files. This is really a no-go.  Especially for a recovery  software (which was btw after reinstallation not able to recover the files which the installer just deleted).

Proof of Bug attached.

EDIT: I used the free version of Recuva.

I've bumped this up to the higher ups.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
