Data Recovery Freeware

thumbnailRecovery software will not help for mechanical or electrical hard drive failures. Only data recovery experts can retrieve back the information in mechanical or electrical hard drive failures. During hard drive failure it is strongly advicable to avoid furthure damaging data by install software on the damaged drive. Use the following data recovery freeware for simple recovering of deleted files before operating system overwrites the free space with data on top of it.

PhotoRec - (Small, fast, easy, no installation, but run within operating system)

PhotoRec can recover lost files include video, documents and archives from Hard Disks and CDRom and as well as lost pictures from digital camera memory.

PhotoRec is a companion program to TestDisk, an app for recovering lost partitions on a wide variety of filesystems and making non-bootable disks bootable again. For more safety, PhotoRec uses read-only access to handle the drive or memory support you are about to recover lost data from.

Important: As soon as a file or picture is accidentally deleted, or missing, do NOT save any more pictures or files to that memory device or hard disk drive to prevent overwriting your lost data. Never write data to the same partition where the files are stored.
