Deployment Method:


This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade recuva -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'1.53.2096'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade recuva -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'1.53.2096'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Screenshot of Recuva

Recover your deleted files quickly and easily with Recuva. Whether it's an accidental deletion or a computer crash, Recuva has you covered.

Superior file recovery

  • Recuva can recover pictures, music, documents, videos, emails or any other file type you've lost. It also supports recovery from any rewriteable media: memory cards, external hard drives, USB sticks and more.

Recovery from damaged disks

  • Unlike most file recovery tools, Recuva can recover files from damaged or newly formatted drives, offering greater flexibility and a higher chance of recovery.

Deep scan for buried files

  • For those hard to find files, Recuva has an advanced deep scan mode that scours your drives to find any traces of files you have deleted.

Securely delete files

  • If you want to ensure a file is gone for good, Recuva's secure overwrite feature uses industry- and military-standard deletion techniques to keep your files erased.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
