Lost file recovery

Win 7 got serious virus, crashed and had to be restored to original settings. Anyone know a safe effective program for finding lost files?

I've seen this one but want to make sure it's safe. Have you used it?

Yes, recuva is completely safe. It is widely used, and I have used it many a times.

Edit : You have performed a factory restore, and then trying to recover data ? Let us know if recuva fails .

Thanks I'll give it a shot, haven't added anything but original settings since I restored it.

Ran the program and it shows lots of files found but I seem to have a problem opening them and the "free" download has no instructions/help. Ideas?
