    Default Need to recover files on FAT16?

    Hi people, I have a system that has FAT16 file system on it. I have that file system on that for some reason so I donít need to upgrade on thatÖ.but recently I had some files deleted and now I need to get them back. They are important for my official use and hold great importance. I know that there is software for recovery but since I have a FAT16 file system I guess that all wonít work on that.

    Please let me know the solution for this problem.

    Recover My Files is compatible with Windows 98/ME/2000/2003/XP and Vista and works with FAT 12, FAT 16, FAT 32, NTFS and NTFS5 file-systems.

    This is now a bit problem….since you are using an older file system I guess you are right…everything wont go on this one. But, I hope that you have tried some….before going on the hunt for a new one. In our office we use link removed by a software that supports FAT 12, FAT 16, FAT 32, NTFS and NTFSS file systems. This one really works well and is simple to manage…..you don’t need to be an expert for that. This will be handy in solving your problem.<o:p></o:p>

    I deleted the spam link. Plus, when someone with a post count under 5 is asking these kinds of questions, and someone with a post count under 5 answers them like they are old friends, it is usually the same spammer with multiple accounts. I am not saying I would always be correct, but 99.99% of the time this is true.
