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

are you talking about a removed program? there are tons on google freewares and sharewares. you won't know until you try them all as I for one don't remove programs I need.

Nope, I don't think it's programs - a secondary drive, full of .RAR files doesn't sound like programs.

Try http://www.undelete.com/undelete/home/undelete.aspx

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?
