Recuva Portable

Recommended Posts

I have Recuva Portable on my PC and now I saw, that there is a new version available.
Where do I get the portable version?

Thank you for your help.

Just guessing but I'd say there probably won't be a portable as the only new is telemetry and that goes against the idea of portable

 

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.

Hi

 

But Recuva successfully works as a portable edition... It comes every time to install it and copy files =(

It would be nice to have a portable version like CCleaner

I am using CCleaner and Recuva portable, because on this machine I can not install any applications.
But using portable versions is working.

So, when there is no more portable version of Recuva, then I have to search for an alternative tool (what would be sad, because Recuva has a good UX).

You misunderstand portable, to my knowledge, is not permanently canceled,  this version doesn't have a portable because (at my guess only) because the only thing added is telemetry to see how people use it

It isn't actually an update. Like Nergal stated it just adds in telemetry.

Nergal is an astute observer of history. Piriform does not always release portable versions at the same time as the main release.  And in this case, it was an interim release with only a build increment (from 1.53.1087 to 1.53.2065) rather than a version update release, and with no functionality added - so no update to the portable version.

In a similar fashion, we updated the Defraggler, Recuva and Speccy installers back in 2020 - but since there was no change to the product itself, there was no need for a portable release at that time either.
