I had to format my computer recently, and I was able to retrieve many files with a program called Pandora. However, it only finds select file types i.e. .zip, .doc, .exe, .jpg, etc... and not file types I still want. They are:

.htm, .html - probably used for other programs, but I mainly want firefox files back, such as bookmarks

.rar - similar to .zip

.deh, .bex - 'dehacked' additions to playing classic doom

.pdf - adobe acrobat

.bak, .proc, .cm, .map, .script - map information for doom 3 maps

.txt - notepad

My computer info (though this seems likely to be irrelevant) is:
C521 Dell, Windows XP
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 3800+
2.00 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
Does anyone know of any programs that can retrieve at least some of the file types I mentioned above? Thanks in advance.

Hello mtres7 and welcome.

I have heard good things about recover my files http://www.recovermyfiles.com/ sadly not free.

There are some good freeware alternatives http://www.snapfiles.com/Freeware/system/fwdatarecovery.html
