Recovering files from a reformatted hard drive?
Hope somebody can help. After having issues with my laptop I've reformatted the hard drive, before doing so I thought I'd saved all the files I wanted, well guess what? I hadn't Grrrrrrr. I downloaded a few programs and have been running one called 'Pareto Logic' for the past 4 days now, it had found 10's of thousands of files, but unfortunately not the ones I wanted before it crashed. Can anybody recommend any particular software? I know what files I want and there 'old' locations but I'm not sure if that is useful. Can you point to a location when recovering files?
Just for info the files I'm trying to recover are some small text(.asm) files used for a microcontroller.
Any help would be great.
