    "This one can scan NTFS as well as FAT file system formats, you can run it as a portable version and it is free for personal use. The only worry I have is that it hasn't seen an update in a while but it still works perfectly fine on Windows 10."

    "One of the few data recovery tools that I have tried that scans for deleted files rather quickly. It can run as a portable version and works on Windows 10. One minor nitpick is that it doesn't restore the original folder structures which I use extensively but overall, works great. Give it a go."

    "A modern interface that fits well with Windows 10 aesthetics. It scans quickly, can recover folder-based files, and you can pause an on-going scan if you need to. The only caveat is that you're limited to just a gig of recoverable data."
