    Hi there

    Hoping somebody can help, I had my laptop formatted and for some reason one of the 2 dvds i backed my data on to did not work. I have already tried a few data recovery software packages such as DataRecovery and GetDataBac, they can find alot of file but not the report i need, am I screwed or is there more powerful software I could try?

    Many Thanks

    THere is a data recovery firm in birmingham thats cheap (comparitively) I forget their name though.

    Recovering from a format and reload may be very expensive though as it's not the easiest of tasks.

    Are you sure?

    Isobuster can see files that you may not be able to see in Windows.

    I have recently lost my data from my computer due to the virus attack. I have used Stellar Phoenix data recovery software to recover all my data. This software is very easy to use and provides good recovery solution. You can try this software it will help you to recover all your data. Firstly download the software demo version from the site
    http://www.stellarinfo.com/download.htm
    In demo version software completely scans your hard drive and you will be able to see the preview of your recoverable file. After getting desired results download the full version to complete your recovery.
