Default Need to save my files…..

Hi everyone,
I have a problem that I would like to share with you. I recently bought a hard disk and had formatted it on my friends system. The installation had no problems and I copied some software in that. But later I found that I could not read some of the files and without my knowing my friend formatted the disk. Now I have lost some important data and need to get back that in any case. Please do suggest some good tools which can help me get them back without much hassle.

Thanks in advance!!!

Data recovery tool for Windows XP, Windows 2000/2003 and Windows NT

I just Googled "recovering files from a reformatted disc?" lol. You have to pay for it, although you could just "acquire" it from a friend, and that might save you a few bucks.

I would suggest that you don’t try any of the softwares in a hurry cause that might make the things more complex. I had a similar problem too and used the data recovery services of a trusted one that made me heave a sign of relief. Its important that you employ the right toll to make things work for you.

All The Best.
