Recently I reformatted my pc- upgraded from windows xp to windows 7-however the person who did it, failed to save my files. So he did a file recovery, but I did not get a lot of my files back-mainly word documents and pdf files. I would like to try a good software which can help me to retrieve my files. Some of the most popular are; Stellar Phoenix, R- Studio, Recorver my FIles, Recuva, Data Rescue,

Virtual Lab and Tenoshare Data Recovery. Can anyone give me valuable information regarding these products, which one is the best etc,

Recuva is the only solid choice that I have any experience with.


Of ccourse...there is no guarantee of success with any program/effort.

Other suitable approach that you can opt is use Kernel for Windows Data Recovery Software for the recovery of your data from any of the storage device which has windows file system.

My most recent usage was Recuva on an older XP, and it did bring back many items.


Just be slow and take care that the programs will match Windows 7 format -

Some will not .......
