I would like to purchase some programs, which are capable of retrieving and restoring my lost data after permament deletion or formatting. You know...about a week ago, my computer crashed big-time, I could not restart Windows, not even wit' safe mode, so I had no choice but completely re-format the partition. I managed to save the majority of my data, however,some files were lost. I want to make sure that this never EVER happens again.
So here are the most important aspects of the wanted programs:
- Should be operative under Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 as well.
- Must be able to restore lost data after deletion or hard disk formatting.
I'm not sure, but if you delete the whole partition, can these programs restore the data after? (Partition is deleted through Windows boot CD during install). Price is not a problem for me...I would like to have as many recovery programs as possible. I would also like to hear your opinion about them.
