 IMO...the "best" data recovery software I have used...is a paid version of Get Data Back - NTFS.  But...I have a small sample size, since I've only had to use such software less than 5 times in my 19 years of playing with computers.  So..."best" really doesn't mean much when you are speaking to me...whatever works for a given user is often considered "the best" by said member.  It's probably NOT the best, since "the best" recovery would probably be done by a professional entity and would cost more than most of us are willing to spend.

 

But I can suggest a number of options.

is there any software around that the equivalent of VLC for Photos, I mean software that'll open anything :)

It's been some time since I've used it but Irfanview is quite good. Freeware available here: http://www.irfanview.com/


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

There are both freeware and shareware software's for data recovery. You can try both, I suggest you to use the shareware as you can get your refund if it doesn't workout under selected issues.
