File Recovery Software




I'm having great difficulty finding a free file recovery program. I work for the biggest UK metal/rock webzine - ( and recently did a phone interview which was composed of two sound files. During my daily computer cleanout, I accidently deleted those two files and I'm still punishing myself for it!.

I have tried loads of file recovery programs but every single one either has that - you can find your files but can't recover them unless you buy this for ridiculous amounts of money! - thing or the - this demo version can only recover 64k - thing.

I really can't afford to dish out on a file recovery program - so I'm asking for any help anybody can give me on this one. Is there a good free one that will recover files of any size for me? . The files are I think over 40-50mb each and very important.

It's really stressing me out, so anybody who can help would be completely appreciated.



Thanks for the suggestions so far.

I managed to pick up a copy of Norton's SystemWorks 2002 for £69.99 but once again...problem strikes!. The UnErase part of the program doesn't seem to be working. A message comes up saying 'could not make communication link with UnErase service'. I have uninstalled the program, reinstalled it, checked the service, set it to automatic, manual etc.

Any ideas anyone? .


Thanks Gajef!!. I managed to recover one of my lost files and it's working great. The other one showed up in the search but I've copied it to my hard drive and it seems to be corrupted, so that's a shame but it's more than I had last night!.

Cheers for your link, great program.


try easy recovery - i used that to recover my uni project after i accidentally reformatted the drive it woz on Doh!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
