Running Recuva from a USB drive
You can install Recuva to and run it from a USB drive.
Why would you use this? If you're helping a friend recover his files from his PC, or your mother needs to recover some files she's deleted from her digital camera's memory card, you can put Recuva on a USB drive and take it with you, easily.
To install Recuva to a USB drive:
To run Recuva as a portable application, double-click the Recuva.exe file in the folder.
Note: If the portable.dat file is present in the same folder on the USB drive as Recuva.exe, Recuva will use the recuva.ini file in that folder for its settings. Otherwise, it will use its own default settings. The portable installation of Recuva will never use or modify any settings in the Windows Registry.
