Hello,

Just try best file recovery tool which will help you to recover files from Windows hard drive.

Then I tried best file recovery software which really helped me to get back all my important data stored on the Windows hard drive. I think you should also try the software once.

Good luck,

When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:

Is it possible to delete a file from "my document" without deleting it from the the Seagate FreeAgent Go 120GB? How?


Hello dwanger754,

Generally, when a file is deleted, only the visible reference to it is deleted. The file still exists on the HDD although you dont see it. If you want to recover this file, there are a lot of "Undelete" or recovery software that can accomplish this. However the most important step with any file recovery technique is to avoid using the drive that holds the deleted files. There is a good chance the file is still present but if you use the computer, the possibility of file recovery decreases.


File Recovery 4 is a free program to recover lost files. All you do is download and Install the program on the computer – try to avoid the same drive as the deleted files. Follow the simple steps and fingers-crossed the file can be recovered. It can undelete a lost file from FAT, FAT!6, FAT32 and NTFS file system format. Plus it can finds partitions automatically, even if the boot sector or FAT has been erased or damaged.

File Recovery 4 can also recover most common files types. Even if part of the file is damaged and beyond recovery, you may be able to get back some useful fragments - recovering half of a lost 10,000 word assignment is better than having nothing at all :)
