AOMEI WinfrGUI -GUI for Windows File Recovery

Posted by

AOMEI WinfrGUI combines the best features of WFR(Windows File Recovery) with a graphical user interface, therefore the name “WinfrGUI.”

Windows File Recovery, or WinFR for short, is a very good tool that Microsoft released in 2004. Unless you are familiar with the command-line tool, or CMD, you may not have heard of it.

The command-line tools, on the other hand, have a notoriously low user adoption rate. For these users, an attractive user interface is more important than anything else (GUI). Because of this, AOMEI, the authors of the popular AOMEI Backupper program, has developed a freeware tool called AOMEI WinfrGUI that serves as the GUI front-end for WFR.

WinfrGUI is a clever reimagining of the Windows File Recovery application. Apps like this one show that simple user interfaces can make it easier for people to use old services that they didn’t even know about.

However, despite the fact that WinfrGUI is only an emulation of the CMD tool, it looks like a clean, distinct application. Using this eye-candy AOMEI app, you can recover or restore deleted files in Windows 11 or Windows 10 with a few clicks.

When the software is launched, wait for it to recognize your disks and partitions. Then, choose the type of scan you want to do. You can choose a quick scan or a deep scan.

WinfrGUI supports file recovery from NTFS, FAT, exFAT, and ReFS-formatted disks. When it comes to the types of files it can recover, we can figure this out from the Custom extensions options in the Advanced Settings tab, which means it can recover all formats.
