I have tried several data recovery programs and some have been more successful than others. If anyone has purchased one of those programs which they would recommend I would be interested in their views.
As I has said I have tried several trials - but although some do show the photo's name I'm looking for they don't let my view the actual photo. How can I be certain it will recover the actual photo. I'm not worried about the cost as I'm desperate to get those photo's back - but I don't want to throw my money away on a crap program.
It's certaqinly not a crap program but if you have carried on using/defragmented or otherwise messed about with the hard drive that has lost/deleted data on it no program is guaranteed to be successful.
If the data is so important then you might need to seel profeessional advice......and we a talking serious money now!
