I deleted a folder and immediately stopped using the PC to investigate undelete programs. After trying several I am annoyed at the fact all of them show that on over 300 files found they are all 0 bytes. They are in fact 100MB rar files. This is a secondard HDD.

What undelete programs to you recommend? the drive is NTFS

Recuva is the best freeware recovery program I've used, and GetDataBack is the best commercial program there is.

Recuva should handle the job though if all you did is a simple delete.

Tried all those programs. Always 0 bytes for all 570 files in that directory. Don't know why it didn't cope with that. I will have to download all that stuff again. That was 60gigs of data. It will take me a while on 2MBit connection :(

How is your secondary drive connected?
Did you try the deep scan options?
