Recovering data from a hard drive - I am planning on using Photorec.


Anyone recommend any other good software for data recovery - free or paid?

Thanks

Hi Dave
The software you linked to appears to recover mainly image files.
Different recovery software will be better at different tasks. Below are the programs I own.
Non of them are free and I listed them in order of preference except for the last two, which are external media focused.
Might look like overkill but I develope software for the USGS. Can't lose anything :thumbsup: I also keep multiple backups.

R-Studio (Network Edition)
Runtime's GetDataBack (Fat & NTFS Versions)
Directory Snoop
GetData's RecoverMyFiles
SpinRite
HDD Regenerator
Undelete Pro
PCinspector's File Recovery
IsoBuster
Flash Drive Recovery

I have confidence in File Scavenger, having used it successfully on a failing hard drive.

I have used Stellar Phoenix Windows data recovery. Found it good and was able to recover lost data from my formatted hard drive. It works on FAT as well as NTFS file system. A demo version of the software shows the preview of the recovered data. Demo version of the software can be downloaded from: http://www.stellarinfo.com/partition-recovery.htm
