Have Googled for products to perform above but there are hundreds. Does anyone have any recommendations please? Preferably Freeware (obviously) but willing to purchase if necessary. Ideaaly should be able to recover all deleted files exts although I ma primarily interested in retrieving some .doc and .xls files which were deleted and cleared from the recycle bin.
There are:- FastfileUndelete, Recuva, and REST2514. All FREE. Google for them. Try not to use your hard drive otherwise it may overwrite the files you are trying to save. Download FastfileUndelete onto a floppy disc and work from there.
