I need to acquire a piece of recovery software. I have a hard drive that I use to keep my Doc. txt. Mp3. and various other information. It is not a primary hard drive. (250 GB WD) There was an accident and the information was erased, but not formatted. I have used some free software to look in and see if I can retrieve the info and it appears as though I can. It has recovered the Jpeg’s so far and then if I want I can go back and get the WMA’s. The program is slow and not as good as I would like. (The software is pci_us_smart-recovery) I need a good program and am willing to pay for it, however I would like to try it out first and make sure that it will do what I want it to. I have had this happen to me before, so I really need a good one. All help is appreciated
I’ve used trial version of GetDataBack from www.runtime.org. It see’s most of my files but is of no use to me unless I purchase the full version.
I found somewhere a program (free) called ‘testdisk_win.exe’. This one also found some of my files and was able to recover them. I can’t find where this came from though.
