Recover accidentally deleted files, even from damaged or formatted disks, with Recuva
Recuva is a free program that recovers files deleted from a computer, Recycle Bin, digital camera card, or MP3 player. You can use this program if you accidentally deleted an important file or lost something important when your computer crashed.
Features: Undelete files on your computer * Recovery from damaged or formatted disks * Recover deleted emails * Recover deleted iPod music * Restore unsaved Word documents * Rebuild Word documents from their temporary files * Quick-Start Wizard * Deep Scan * Securely delete files you want to erase forever * Portable version
Deep Scan mode is very slow if you have a large disk (about an hour for a 320 GB disk), but you will need it, if in quick mode you don’t find your deleted file. The less data you wrote on your disk after you accidentally deleted your file, the more chances you have to find it and restore it with Recuva or similar programs.
Recuva is an efficient and trustworthy application. Commercial versions with more features are also available.
