So a friend at work as an ancient laptop that he was trying to reload. As part of the normal process, he formated his drive (single drive, single partition). As the format process was completing, he realized that he did not backup some images/pictures that were on the drive. As I said, this is an ancient laptop that was running Windows Me in a FAT32 partition (ugh!).. all of my tools seem to be NTFS only.. and I can't seem to find any of my old Norton tools in my stack of old disks. so, does anyone know of any (free) tools that can recover the formated drive.. since there is no OS on the HD now just a plain formated drive, It would be preferable to have a utility that can run from a floppy.
