See what happens when you post your problem clearly stated as suggested? These are all really valuable leads.

Do this slowly and systematically. Download and try each of the programs suggested. Take screenshots of the data found by each using Snipping Tool in Start Menu and compare them side-by-side.

Read and study each program's functions and compare their cost to decide for sure if you want to go with the freeware. Others can tell you if you lose a second chance at recovery when you run your first choice program?


Only after you know exactly how you are going to proceed, asking any questions here to know exactly what you are doing, should you actually run the recovery operations.


We can walk your through your previous issues afterward.

+1.

And be sure not to write anything more to that HD! Unformat and recovering data after formatting is (almost) always possible if you have not written anything on top of previous data.

I have "recovered" some of the files with various (non-destructive...)utilities, but most, of approximate correct file size, are damaged and do not open. I could have sworn that over the recent years I saw utilities to make damaged .jpg files readable, but before I did a Google and started trying anything I found, would any of you folks have had experience with any of the like?

Can you try restoring to an external hard disk?

data recovery vista

file recovery vista is the software which is used to handle the situation which comes after virus attacks and etc. once the data is gone away then it is hard to activate and access them with help of any outer software. as i have used it i could say that file recovery vista is beneficial in recovering data of all file system.
