Question Data Recovery, Any Freebies?

Guys,

I turned my trusty old laptop on this morning and it came up with a (No operating system) screen. :(

The hard drive is a Toshiba 80 GB with 3 partitions. Linux on P1 - 15gb, Data on P2 - 55gb and P3 has 10 Gb for some Win programmes storage.

I took the HDD out, put it in an external enclosure, attached it to 2 other LTs and both showed the HDD partitions as ( RAW ) Formats.

I ran a couple of data recovery apps which showed the files/data is still there, but without paying megabucks, I can't recover them. :sick:

Anyone know of a good free recovery programme, before I go down the paid route?

TIA,

Peter

Have you tried Recuva?

Vitus992.

Thanks for replying.

The disk partitions show up in Win Explorer,, but Win is not able to read them.
Yes, I tried "Recuva" (latest update) which can't find the drive.
The HDD, with partitions, is recognised in "Easus Partition Master Free', but it is unable to "Select Source Disk" when I try to clone it to another drive for experimenting with. :(

Any more suggestions - pretty please?

Regards,

Peter

I have found a (very old) copy of Ontrack EasyRecovery Pro lurking on an external hard drive.

It's recovered (it says anyway) 109,983 files and is now writing them to disc. :P

Only another 22 hrs, 15 minutes to go and I'll be happy or pulling my hair out! :huh:
