Default Undelete utility

Can anyone recommend a really good undelete utility (prefereably free)?

Thanks!

Regards

Hi Blu,

I tried 2 or 3 times to post some recommendations for you here ... but something it is screwed up ... I keep getting a screen saying that "Needs Moderator Approval" ... I don't know what is that all about ... so now I am shortening my message and trying it again ... if no go then the heck with it ... sorry I am a little ticked ...

30 day Trial ... just to get you out of your mess for now

I suppose you have found a good one by now, but "Recuva" from the people at CCleaner looks promising, I havent used it yet but have it at the ready

(Piriform Recuva is the name, and they have a site: Recuva.com )

I think they used to work better in the old Win9x days because
Windows used to work its way in from the outside of the disk
to the center to try to avoid fragmentation. Then when you
defragged your drive it started back at the end of the used
space again when creating new files. Now with NTFS I don't
know what it does but it seems to overwrite deleted files pretty
quickly. If it's a small file that can fit in that MFT structure or
whatever it is, they probably recycle it right away. Got to
get 'em while they're hot.

Yeah - I can see that. And if you got another disk utility running (e.g. Diskeeper), then you're fried.

I've DL'ed Recuva from CCleaner and it seems to find the files pretty well and tell me which ones are OK.

Thanks everyone!

I had a really useful one called GetDataBack for FAT/NTFS (Both are separate programs, God knows why...)

It's not free, but I think there's a trial of it. It helped me get 95% of the files back that were on a 2GB SD card when it corrupted itself and showed as being completely blank in Windows. It even found some 1-2 year old pictures on my mom's digital camera card that's been reformatted countless times since then!

Wow that's impressive!

Come to think of it, that's a bit scary too.

I'm sure the ratio is MUCH lower uufta. Hope things are well at your end and thanks to all who suggested things in this thread.

Question

Hi Blu,

Did you try any of the Freeware ones that I posted? If so, which one did you even like at all? Or were they all waste of time softwares?

Thanks,

G!

See post 8. I haven't downloaded them all - I rarely do that; was just looking for something that suits my purposes.
