What is a .LIF file?

Image file created by a Leica microscopy instrumentation device and the integrated Leica desktop software; may contain multiple images taken in succession; used for storing highly magnified images of biological specimens, which can be called photomicrographs.

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 .LIF file may be deleted.

Use programs for recovering .LIF 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.
