    PLEASE HELP!!! I think i may have accidentaly deleted files off a friends flash dive and I dont know how to get them back. The files are for her business, so I need help ASAP. I have a basic knowledge of computers. If someone could give me directions on how to recover these files or a program that could please let me know. Thanks all so much

    From a Elvandil Post
    Here's a list. If the free ones don't see anything, forget the pay ones. I know Pandora is still around and has updated recovery software. And the other day, someone used the Disk Investigator at the bottom, which is meant to show you how much stuff is still on your drive after you thought you cleaned it, and they managed to get all their files back. Dr. Freeware is pretty new and updated not too long ago, with other useful tools, too.

    Here's the list, anyway (I have more if you run out :D):

    Free recovery applications:

    Dr. Freeware Boot CD (also has partition tool, drive cloner and imager)
    DiskDigger & NTFSWalker
    Pandora Recovery (Free for personal use)
    Smart Data Recovery
    Recover Files
    Roadkil's Undelete
    Recuva
    Restoration
    Free Undelete (NTFS only)
    Softperfect File Recovery
    ADRC Data Recovery Tools
    Undelete Plus
    Data Recovery
    PCI File Recovery
    DriveRescue
    Ultimate Data Recovery
    Disk Investigator

    Commercial:

    O&O Disk Recovery
    Paragon Mount Everything (Mounts any file system, CD/DVD burning, File Manager, Partitioner)
    GetDataBack (For FAT or NTFS)
    Ontrack EasyRecovery Pro
    File Scavenger
    Recover My Files
    RecoverPlus Pro
    Zero Assumption Recovery
    [email protected] File Recovery
    Final Recovery
    Recover4All Professional
    Easeus Data Recovery Wizard

    Yes, direct links are discouraged. But as you say, links from someone here with a good reputation are certainly different from those from people with a single post, direct or not.

    (I see TerryNet has now taken care of that.:D)

    etaf: Though anyone is free to use that list and I encourage it, you may want to take out that "recently updated" part since that was 2009. :D It still works, however.
