Data and Photo Recovery With TestDisk

TestDisk and PhotoRec are 2 high powered, open source recovery tools that will run on many platforms including Linux, BSD, Windows, Mac, Dos and several other OS's.

Test Disk will recover lost or deleted files, recover lost or damaged partitions and rebuild damaged filesystems.

PhotoRec can recover pictures and files from digital camera memory, hard drives and Cd/DVD's.
It ignores file names so it can retrieve files from severly damaged file systems.

You can get more details and download them from here;

Ubuntu users can download it from Synaptic by doing a search for testdisk.
The repository package contains both titles.

While at their site you may want to also check out their cmos and NT password recovery and changer.

Each moment has a specific importance in life and loosing them due to some silly incident like formatting is not acceptable. The photo recovery procedure needs a beginning from scanning of the storage media and the application of some powerful algorithms which could restore your photos and the same is applicable through the use of photo recovery software.

Software did not work for me. I ended up contacting The evaluation was free, they salvaged my photos in no time. I highly recommend them.
