The title data recovery lifesaver is probably a little dramatic, but sometimes there are data files that are so important one goes into an absolute panic if it gets deleted, over-written, corrupted, or damaged.

Furthermore, pictures and videos can be even more important. Memories fade while pictures last a lifetime unless you get a virus or your computer eats them. Do you say bye-bye to Junior’s first steps? Well, you might, but give this program a try first.

PhotoRec 6.9 sure doesn’t have a fancy name, but it is a very powerful data, photo, and video recovery utility. The data can be recovered from archives, hard disks, CDRoms, or digital cameras.

PhotoRec goes after the underlying data, ignoring the filesystem, so it will still work if your media’s filesystem has been severely damaged or reformatted. PhotoRec is also a companion program to TestDisk which is an application for recovering lost partitions and making non-bootable disks bootable again.

Both data recovery programs are free from cgsecurity.org. They run under several operating systems like Dos, Windows, Mac and more.
