Recovering Lost Data

 

I have lost 20GB of photographs from my hard drive. I used a software called ‘Art Plus Digital Photo Recovery’ which ran for over 24 hours. It recovered only 35,000 JPEG files in small sizes. Please suggest a software to recover my data. How can I ensure it does not happen again?

You can try using a package called ‘PC Inspector Smart Recovery’. It is a freeware. It will help you retrieve any data that has not been overwritten. It is for this reason that an external hard drive should be maintained as a backup drive, and used only to backup and store your critical data.
