Creating a backup of your computer is a wise idea. It helps avoid losing your files to accidental deletions. But if your hard disk is damaged some way or the data is lost without you having its backup, file recovery programs are your best bet.

Like all other application types, Windows users will find a plethora of options when it comes file recovery software. Options for Linux users, on the other hand, are limited. Thus we decided to share the top 5 file recovery apps for our Linux reader. We hope you find today’s list helpful.

Ddrescue

Ddrescue is a wonderful file recovery program that operates automatically. Without prompting the user for timely actions, it copies data from one file or bloc to another, attempting to rescue data in case of read errors. If not asked to, the app will not truncate the output file or write zeros to the output when bad sectors are found in the input. Thus “every time you run it on the same output file, it tries to fill in the gaps without wiping out the data already rescued.

Safecopy

Safecopy is another file recovery tool that is best suited to extracting data from external sources such as floppies, CDs, etc. The app “includes a low level IO layer to read CDROM disks in raw mode.”

TestDisk

TestDisk is a powerful file recovery freeware for Linux. The app can recover deleted partitions, FAT32 boot sector, fix MFT using MFT mirror, fix FAT tables, files from deleted FAT/exFAT/NTFS/ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions, and a lot more.

PhotoRec

PhotoRec is a Linux file recovery app best suited to recovering photos and media files. It can also recover document files and works with external sources equally well.

Mondo Rescue

Mondo Rescue is an excellent tool for situations involving GPL disasters. The app supports external sources and is packaged for multiple distributions namely RedHat, RHEL, SuSE, SLES, Mandriva, Debian, and Gentoo.
