post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been in the situation of trying to recover data from hdd's thousands of times but never had good results. When i bring it to the store i bought it they bring me another one with the data in recovered.

How they can recover these data ? software ? anyone know a good method ?


Thanks

What type of data are you talking about exactly?
Just I've yet to come across a program that will recover 100% of data after a format.

This program came the closest - Recuva - Freeware

Everyone has their own favorite data recovery app. Mines is GetDataBack. It is not free, but it has worked everytime I tried it. Just be prepared to let the program do it's thing as the recovery can take up to 24 hrs in my experience.

Others might have some good recommendations for free programs.

Good luck
