    Default Recommend me a free file recovery program

    Can someone recommend a good free program to recover files off a hard drive that had them all marked for deletion? Thanks.

    I use a program called "DiskDigger". It's very effective, offering both a quick and a thorough scan depending on how long you want to wait and how damaged the "deleted" file may be. it weighs in at a tin 1.44MB and has a permanent place on my Verbatim Mini USB drive (about 1cmx2cm, tiny thing). It is installed there along with all the other essentials I need to troubleshoot and/or remain anonymous on public machines including mobile versions of Openoffice.org, Firefox, Faststone Photo Resizer, VLC Portable, Thunderbird Portable and 7Zip portable.

    You may want to consider making yourself such a selection of useful utilities. IMO it's essential to be able to run a file recovery program from a seperate drive as installing it to a machine may mean that the data you're trying to recover gets overwritten, which is a disaster because then you'll never get it back (well, not by using software).

    But I would suggest that you take a look at Advanced File Recovery. It recovers deleted files removed from the Windows Recycle Bin, or lost due to a hard drive format, virus attack, unexpected system shutdown or software failure.

    If you are the Windows 7 OS, there has a free software will be useful for you, which is EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard 4.8 Beta . It can recover deleted files emptied from the Recycle Bin. And you can find same useful info form: How to Recover the Deleted Files and Folders.

    Now, there are two choices for you:
    1. easeus partition master home edition, it is a free partition recovery software, can recover data from any lost drive.
    2. easeus deleted file recovery. EASEUS Deleted File Recovery is a fully functional freeware designed to recover deleted files from all types of media such as Hard Disk Drives, Floppy Drives, Smart Media, Compact Flash, Memory Sticks, and other types of removable media.
