File recovery software

  Thatslife 11:06 31 Jul 2009

Would someone please recomend good file recovery software (free preferably). My friends daughter has deleted everything by means of a system restore and I want to have a go at recovering some of the files for them.

I'm running Vista(32) but the drive I'm working on has XP although this is now connected to my machine.

have you tried undo restore?

Is was a full system recovery rather than a system restore. Apologies I should have been more specific.

I'm hoping I can recover some pictures etc along with a lecture about backing up files (again).

Ok thanks for those. I'll have a look at them and give it a go.
