Sometimes, things seemingly go from bad to worse when you're dealing with your data. That's why you will love to have this program in your arsenal.

This free file data recovery software is designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory (CompactFlash, Memory Stick, Secure Digital/SD, SmartMedia, Microdrive, MMC, etc.). PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.

In most cases, PhotoRec can recover the entire file with no problem.

Note: Do not save any files onto your computer after you notice that a photo or document is missing or was accidentally deleted. Saving files overwrites your hard drive with more information, which makes it more difficult to recover the deleted file.

PhotoRec works by combing through your hard drive, looking for the bits of data that make up the document or photo that was deleted. When all the bits of information are gathered, PhotoRec can put them back together and voila! it reassembles your document.

However, if not enough of the item's data can be recovered, then it is lost and not even PhotoRec can recover it. It's very important that you stop everything to recover your item the moment you discover that it's gone.

This means that when you run PhotoRec, you need to send the recovered data to a different storage device than the one it's searching, because you will overwrite and corrupt the data you're searching.
