Recover your lost data or partition

After posting about programs that you can used in USB thumb drive, the next thing that goes through my mind is data lost issue. I’m sure lots of you experienced data lost due to viruses, accidentally delete or system crash. Actually your data is not lost, just that they are categorized as unwanted. The data are still in a place waiting to be replacing by new data. You might still be able to recover your data as long as the data is not being replaced.

TestDisk is one of the free data recovery software that enables you to recover your lost data. The software comes with both novice and expert version. For simple and easy usage, novice version is just enough. If you’re trying to look into a non-booting drive then you might need to use the expert version. Well, no harm learning as much as you can because it might come in handy when you have a hard drive failure. The software is able to run under DOS, Windows, Linux, SunOS, MAcOS, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD that makes it a handy tool in performing onsite recovery.

P/S: The sex photos of Hong Kong Star Edison Chen were retrieved by this method. So, please do not assume that data deleted from recycle bin are gone for good. Placing your PC in a wrong hand might just expose them as all we need is just simple data recovery software.
