I write today because I've accidentally deleted a file from a flash drive. While this is not usually a problem, I did not discover it was missing until after I emptied my recycle bin. :trumpet:

I remembered using file restore programs in the past but my current installation did not have one. I went looking on the web for freeware restore programs and tried about 4-5 but none could find my file, except one which reports it could recover the file - for a $39 program fee. :flowers:

I have not written to my flash drive since the accidental deletion and trying the restore programs so my file is still there - but does anyone know of a reliable freeware file recovery program that can help me get my file back? :thumbsup:

Thank you very much,
Mike

I've had success with this one:

Recuva is one of the best, IMHO.
