See if any of the titels mentioned in http://forums.cnet.com/7723-7588_102-354911.html works for you. RECUVA is free, others might have a demo mode and only actually recover the data after you paid.
user friendly, cost efficient, effective, thorough, just the best that can be found on a budget. Is there truly a free version that will do it all and not come back asking to upgrade to a full version to reap any real benefit. I have used testdisk which is free but seems to be over my head in the novice techie department. I don't know enough to make it work right for me. I really need this lost data, some advice please. Thanks
