Hello there folks.
I am new on this site, so I apologize if this thread is not in the right place.
I work as an electrician at the local power plant in the island I live at. I may be the newest member of the team, but my understanding in computers, as well as electronics and the English language are better compared to the other fifteen people who work there (some of them barely even know how to send an e-mail), so I am often assigned to help them. And so the "boss" there asked me for a favor:
Three days ago the guy who was working in the office was removed (nicer way to say that he was fired). But before he left he deleted all the data from the flash drive on the main computer. There was data about the generators, the oil consumption, dates for repairs, orders, and many more. Now, as I said, that guy deleted all that data and emptied the recycle bin. I don't think that he formatted the drive.
So, my question is: Can I get those files, or at least some of those files back? Is there any software that will allow me to do so?
I thank you guys in advance.
