Has anyone ever used a file recovery program before?
Did it work and which is the best one?

The best one seems to be free. There are a couple posts in this forum about lost data recovered by Restoration. In one case, a drive that appeared empty was filled with an mp3 collection that was recovered.

If you use this program, click the Others menu and Scan All Clusters for the best results. The thing should be used by law enforcement!

EnCase is another good one actually used by law enforcement. It is excellent at recovery, as you can imagine, but is obsessed with creating "case files" for presentation and recovery takes second place.

I've had experience with Ontrack Easy Recovery. Its not perfect, but it will recover a lot of stuff...as well as stuff that you "thought" have been gone for years. It will recover multiple copies of the same file (ex. word document), so you might have to read through it to make sure it contains all the information you need. Hmm...that's all I can say I guess... :)
