Maby the wrong place for this, but i mainly work with windows.

I have clients often coming to us that have not backed up their hard drive.


we use test disk and vortex etc and often get info off for them.
mainly free programs we are using


my question is. Can any body suggest a good paid program that would do a similar job but add more stability, reliability etc. or do they not offer any more than the likes of test disk.


we want to be able to recover other delted pics and documents also


just a few suggestions or thoughts on such paid programs as we are finding the free ones are not so staible. thanks





Hu? did i do that?

Try Recuva, it's free and very good

I've also heard Get Data Back and Get Data Back for NTFS are good but they are pretty expensive.

I was using Easy Recovery pro until recently when it didnt find any files from a clients drive..... I ran Recuva and it found them all first time Laughing

So +1 for Recuva

Recuva and GetData Back - used both - GDB is better for a nearly stuffed HDD - have had it work on a drive windows didn't see

I use Recover My Files - works well. 

For bung drives I use SpinRite and then Recover My Files to get the repaired files back.
