    Is there a program I can get that will retrive deleted data from my hard disk, such as emails and messenger conversations, etc.

    Thanks :confused:

    Depends.

    Data isn't gone until it's overwritten. When you "delete" something the OS just marks the space as unused.

    If the data was originally saved to your hard drive, and hasn't been overwritten yet. Yes

    If the data was never saved to your hard drive and only existed on a server or RAM then or has already been overwritten. No.

    Check out these from Tucows:
