ICO File Recovery

What is a .ICO file?

An ICO file contains an icon, which is typically used for a Windows program, file, or folder. It stores one or more images in various sizes so they can be appropriately scaled depending on their use. ICO files are similar to .CUR files, which are also used in Windows, and .ICNS files, which are used in macOS.

How to recover lost .ICO files?

Sometimes while working with a computer, laptop or other stationary or mobile devices, you may encounter various bugs, freezes, hardware or software failures, even in spite of regular updates and junk cleaning. As a result, an important .ICO file may be deleted.

By no means should you think that the only way to recover a .ICO file is always to create it once more.

Use programs for recovering .ICO files if a file was lost after accidental or deliberate deleting, formatting the memory card or the internal storage, cleaning the storage device, after a virus attack or a system failure.
