Recovery Software

Postby Xsoldier2000 » Sat Nov 22, 2008 3:29 pm

Here's a question for the Slyck elite....What is the best File Recovery Software you guys use?

I used to use GetDataBack, but I am wondering if there is a better software out there?

If there is one that supports Linux & Windows that would be prefect.

Thanks ahead of time.

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Thanks bmh67wa, I've sent in the necessary information...just waiting on the approval and DL link.

I can across RIPLinux, a LiveCD with all the necessary software I believe I will ever need.

Helix3 seems like it may be a more deeper learning curve than I bargained for. May I ask how long it took you to learn the programs?

Yes, I have tried Recuva....I didn't find it to be a very strong software. It seems like everything had to be the way the program wanted the hard drive to be in order to do anything.

I was looking for tools that could analyze the problems...try different things and adjust to what the disk needed in order to recover. (ie, rebuild MBR & MFT's along with Identifying and recovering partitions.)

So I tried RIPLinux last night on the problem hard drive and between testdisk and photorec...I rebuilt and recovered everything I needed to.

Having DL'd Helix and in checking out the LiveCD....I'll be spending my weekend there.

There is an included Help menu but I Googled everything! :)
