Default Re: O/T computer help desk thread

there's a bunch of them, mostly works from quick formats or accidental deletes. I've never tried them on corrupt harddrives but tried it on a crashed USB flash thumb drive and it worked. They don't always get 100% of your data back, but sometimes as long as you get a few then it's better than nothing. But still your BIOS needs to at least still be able to see your harddrive, not necessarily the format or partition.

I forgot which programs I've tried and had success though. No real true free ones, may say free but free to see what's recoverable then pay to actually recover it. But there's ways to make them free/get full versions for free. More at
