Recovery of deleted files

I have unfortuantely deleted some Xmas photos from my hard drive and would like to know of recovery software (preferably free) that works in retrieving the deleted files. My recycle bin was emptied and system restore does not help.

Best to install on a seperate PC and configure the HDD that you deleted the files from as a slave. It won't overwrite the files when you install the software.

Run it from a floppy.

Sorry for slow response.

Tried both suggested programs. File scavenger was very powerful and recovered thousands of photos to a USB Flash Drive (i.e. different drive). Took ages but unfortuantely found almst all the photos I could remember except ones I particularly wanted.

Not sure if it becase these were deleted direct from the Kodak Easyshare program rather than via Windows Explorer. Might not be but can't explain it any other way as to why these can't be recovered.
