Recovering data

Windows was repaired on a machine and the user profile seems to have been erased....

What software do you guys recommend for recovery?

Get back data for ntfs?
EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard?
Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery Software?

Some other software?

Hdd was running XP.

Thanks.

I hope that you understand to turn off that machine - NOW.

Connect the drive to another working machine.

Many here use Recuva. I use File Scavenger and/or Recover My Files (I have each on different machines).

Use one that saves your folder hierarchy as well, or you'll find yourself with an endless list of files without any structure.

Active@undelete can't recover structure.
And Stellar neither the last time I checked.

good luck

I currently use EASUS but have also used Easy Recovery, both in the pro versions. Either will get back what you lost

Recovering Lost Data on Your Drive
If you lose your data, be sure to check the recycle bin first. If there are no files in the recycle bin, there is still hope. Even though your files are deleted, the data may still be recoverable because the reference to the file has simply been deleted and not the data itself. As long as your...
