    Alright, I really need help today. My friend gave me a flash drive to take to work and uninstall the U3 system on, when I uninstalled it, it essentially reformatted the flash and I lost all of his information. As a side note, I thought it was only uninstalling U3, not reformatting the flash. In the end, it was my stupid mistake.

    Anyways, back the story... So I went to the sandisk website and found their data recovery software for removable media (like MP3 Players and such), but being an open source believer, I sought an alternative.

    I basically need to know if there is any great freeware for flash drive data recovery. If there isn't, then can anybody help me in some other way? This is pretty urgent as the data was probably important.

    Flash Drive Specs:

    Sandisk Cruzer micro 2 GB Black (Came with U3 installed, of course)

    Any help or comments are much appreciated!!!

    Thanks for the help Elvandil, but I had to use Sandisk's RescuePro trial before I even recovered anything. It asked me if I wanted to buy it after it found the lost doc, but I called up my friend and that file turned out to be expendable.

    It's kinda suspicious though that I tried 5 or 6 recovery apps, and only when I used the Sandisk approved one did I find the missing documents.... Hmmmm....

    Anyways, solved. Thanks again, see you around.
