  • This might be a lifesaver. Worth a try anyway.

    Sorry I didn't know about this when Mama3chick needed it.

    Here's a freeware program to recover those accidently deleted/lost due to system failure files.
    Does not work on damaged drives or on NTFS formatted drives.
    NTFS support is promised soon.
    Compatible with Windows95, 98, NT, 2000 and FAT-formatted XP.

    I DL'ed the rescue disk.zip version and placed it on a floppy to use for emergency.
    Then I deleted 9 jpg's and was able to locate them all on my drive.
    6 out of 9 files were recovered successfully - not bad considering it's free.
    Possibly might do even better if one were to tweak the options/read the help files. Maybe?

    All things considered, a 66% success rate isn't bad for that price!
    Could sure save a lot of time in an emergency.

    (NOTE: yes, this is a near duplicate of a previous post by myself. However I thought it could be valuable information to someone someday, download it now just in case that someone might be you.)
    A small amount of insurance for the price of a floppy: party ha

    norton disk doctor works well & so does lost & found

    both must be run from dos boot disk - ndd is much easier - been able to bring whole HD's back and get every file (all the important ones) - they also work on NTFS, & floppies

      Mmm yeah, I was just wanting to let people know there was a free tool available, that might be somewhat effective.

      As in to say - what's that Norton proggy cost??

      Although admittedly, I presume this is a classic case of; You get what you pay for. Free always has had some unexplainable attraction for me. :D

        I think they are both around the $100 AUS mark - if its important enough its worth buying it

        I know with Lost and found u check to see if it finds the files before u pay for it
