You should not put your email address in plain sight. - Unless you actualy wanted to get bombarded with a load of scam/phishing emails that is?

If you set email notifications then they are sent to the email that you registered when joining the forum.
That is not shown openly, to protect your privacy. (Moderators and Piriform Staff can see it if needed).

There is no difference in what Free/Pro can recover, or where to. (Apart from Pro has support for virtual drives).
The differences are shown on the download page:

So unless you have a virtual HD, want automatic updates (It's been 4 years since the last update to Recuva), or want to be able to raise 'tickets' with support then the Free version is all you need.

Hello Nukead

 

What I did was accidentaly delete a 110GB file from my computer, are you saying that the free version of recuva can recover this for me, if so I am amazed truly.
Kind Regards

Yes the Free version can recover the files - if they are at all recoverable.

NOTE- Try not to use that computer in the meantime, any use may overwrite (some of) the deleted files making them unrecoverable.

The recovery capabilities of Recuva Free and Pro versions are no different at all, either one will do exactly the same job of recovery.
(Unlike some other softwares where the free version will only say it finds them, but you then have to pay for recovery).

The documentation for Recuva can be found here, see in particular what it can and can't do:
