recovering a deleted word file

Yes I know we all done it if we tell the truth and now I have , I deleted a word file and need it back , its not in recycle bin.

I know that security services have software to get back things you think are gone forever but is it possible to "get back" something from your hard drive by searhing or using a free program.

hi john thanks for pointing me in the right direction , I ran the program on a spare pc just in case something went wrong , on the almost new pc it claims to have found nearly half a million files and still has 2 hours to run.

good news is it found a word file I deliberately destroyed for the test but the bad news is the program only previews what it found , to delete I must buy at so many % of list price but £74 to get 1 document is way to much.

thanks anyway
