Recover My Files is a data recovery software program that helps users find accidentally deleted material that has been lost either at the fault of the user or via hardware problems or malicious software. The distribution company allows you to download the product for free and search for files, but you cannot save without making a purchase. This allows you to see if the product will help you find what you lost. If it doesn't, you simply let the trial lapse. To use the program and obtain a username and license key, follow these simple steps.
