"Microsoft quietly created a Windows 10 File Recovery tool, how to use"

Known issues with Windows 10, version 2004 and Windows Server, version 2004

Also extremely not recommended to install any software on the same system you want to attempt to recover data from. If you're serious about real data recovery then connecting the drive you want to recover data from to another system with recovery software already installed is the best solution without sending it out to a Lab to do recovery.

If the recovery is from a secondary drive then installation would not typically be an issue.

My own custom built system is not ready for Windows 10 build 2004
