    I have deleted some files permanent-ally on my PC few months ago which i need now. Some are more than 200 MB size even. Is there any way to bring them back.

    Chances are that something has written over the top of them by now. If you want to recover files, you should stop using the drive as soon as possible so that no more files get overwritten. You should then scan the drive by connecting it to another computer, or by using a boot CD or USB stick with recovery tools on it.

    If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

    This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.
