    Please Help!! I Erased A Folder

    Well, I just erased a 25 GB folder, with a lot (all) files important to me.
    How do I get it back?
    I know there are recovery progrmas, but I can't remember the name of any of them, exept System works, but I am not happy to buy a whole suite only for that feature.
    Any help???
    THANKSSS!!!!!!

    man-o-man sure hope you didn't use some eraser that over writes about 35 times is that correct 25gig folder ? thats one heck of a folder...

    Conan lost some stuff on a bad HD he had & I'm almost sure that he used one of those things that egghead suggest and it worked.

    Luckily the drive is a drive I use to store Files, so I can discnect it.
    That place where they have free Software has changed the URL.
    Now, I think I shouldn't watch TV while deleting un-needed files again, because I might mistake the position of the cursor. I though it was taking too long to delete a 1GB folder.
    And since it was so big, it deleted directly, wthout reciclying bin
    And I don't use Super erase progrmas, Just the good Old Delete Key, since I use the HD anyways, so I recycle all sectors
    So I am sure I can recover it.
    Just have to find the correct tool.

    I couldn't find the old thread either. And by the way, I wasn't the one that recovered the old files, it was zErO.

    That should fit your ticket. It is free, and based on the User reviews it sounds promising. 92% of the users rated it postively, while only 8% (probably user related issues) rated it negatively.

    Publisher's Description
    From the developer: "PC INSPECTOR File Recovery is a data recovery program that supports the FAT 12/16/32 and NTFS file systems. Recovers files, even when a header entry is no longer available."

    it's only 2.81MB as well, and is 100% free.

    If you use it, let us know how it goes.

    I used GetDataBack for NTFS (Runtime Software) and managed to get back the majority of my lost files, even after formatting the drive. I tried a couple of other programs such as Ontrack Easy Recovery. But found that GetDataBack, recovered the majority of my files.
    hope it all works for you buddy
    if you need some more assistance let us know
