Can I recover files that I have deleted from a computer?

I moved my picture and music files from my old computer by putting them on an external drive, in preparation for moving them to my new computer. Unfortunately, the external crashed before I copied the file to my new computer. I had deleted the files, after copying, on the old computer, but have not rewritten anything since. My friend has tried freezing the external drive, but so far, was not able to get it running. Can I recover the files deleted from the old computer?

With the correct program yes.

You need to consider if the cost of recovery is worth the cost of the files.

For the external drive, try Spinrite. Freezing doesn't really work.

It is possible, but not 100% success if the files are already rewritten, anyway you can try using this free application which is very effective and you can restore the data with the file types.. http://www.downloadsource.net/d1612/PC-Inspector-Smart-Recovery/ Good luck..
