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

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
NTFS Recovery

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.

if the original user hasn't found a solution by now, 3 months down the line, then he really is in trouble with his friend
