Overwritten file recovery

Hi, I have been having difficulties on retrieving the
overwritten video files from the hard disk.

I have tried using 'GetDataback' software to recover the
data but no luck.

I have also tried with 'Glary Utility' software but the
software did not find my file that was overwritten.

I was wondering if there is any software or way to recover
it back.

Re: overwritten file

Consider it gone, if you don't have a backup.

Actually there is software ...

available for recovering overwritten files BUT it is not cheap and isn't sold to just anyone.

If the files are really valuable contact both Drive Savers and Ontract Data Recovery and get an estimate for file recovery.

It isn't cheap but it tells you how much they are really worth and the value of backing files up to ensure that mistakes or disk crashes will not deprive you of them in the future.
