Windows File Recovery of Microsoft is a reliable CMD tool.

The structure of command line is like: winfr source-drive: destination-drive: [/mode] [/switches].

You should choose the right mode according to the file system.


If you don't know how to check your file system, you can follow this process: Click This PC > Right-click the source drive > Tap the Properties.
