Last time, when my external hard drive became RAW and needed to be formatted without rescuing anything inside out, I had tried many data recovery software online. After really long time scanning and trying, luckily, I eventually rescued most of my drive stuffs back with data recovery software here:
Moreover, most importantly, I had learned a lesson to make drive data backups all the time in case of similar data loss problems.
So, if you also don’t want to have such drive data loss issues, always prepare data backups and update them timely.

I prefer to use Recuva. But, It can't find the files which is deleted using Shift+Delete key. I wonder if there is any freeware can recover that files...

I concur with SammeyDW that Restoration ( is far better.

Works, sometimes...

I've had problems with the deleted files wipe out feature on NTFS, but that was on a previous version of 'DataRecovery'. 'Recuva' and 'Restoration' are IMHO more valuable (though without the wipe out feature).

It is buggy. And I would not use it even if it is not buggy. The reason is the "Wipe" button is set at a very convenient place which most people would click on too easily.


This is my 2 cents.

I tested this software 'side by side' against Undelete-PLUS and it did not find as many files as Undelete-Plus on any of my drives. It also 'hung' in the process of trying to wipe the files it found. Undelete-plus is also freeware.

This is better on FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 disks.
I have problems when trying to use it on a NTFS disk.

For FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS , Restoration does a much better job.

There are better programs then either of these two.

But Restoration is better then DataRecovery in many areas.
