Lately i used several software products to recover data and in my findings Recuva didn't perform very well.

I settled with Easeus Data Recovery Wizard (and no, this is not and advertisement!) which performs very good, however costs some money if you need to recover more than 2 GB of data.

You can recover external drives via USB with that tool. Same applies for Recuva afaik.

Hi Uplink

I've recovered a great amount of data from my hard disks after some stupid formatting. I tried Recuva and Orion from NCH, I would rate Recuva first in free programs followed by Orion. The first thing is whatever may be the software, stop writing anything even the installation files of recovery programs you wanted to use. The least you use the drive you wanted to recover, the more are the chances of recovery.
