My girlfriend is what I like to call accident prone. She just deleted her entire iTunes folder while her iPod was hooked up to her laptop. Computer and iPod copies; gone.

Basically; if anybody knows of a program to retrieve deleted files, you are a hero. I've never encountered this sort of problem and I don't know of any programs that are legitimate that do this; so if you guys could tell me of one I could easily get a hold of (preferably free) then I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Photorec is something i use for single file recovery never tried a whole directory but im sure itll handle it fine, its command line based though but i think there's a GUI version around.

Also (EDITED) Hiren's BootCD has a number of file recovery programs, i THINK i used Prosoft media tools, i recovered a whole HDD that had been formatted and repartitioned missing only around 8 of 400 movies as you can imagine i was pleased lol.

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.

REST2514 is freeware I've had luck with. You have to have another drive to restore it to though, or else you can overwrite what you're recovering.

I been there, buddy.

Once, I made a stupid mistake and it caused me a loss of over 2 GB of my files.

This is the best I found "Get Data Back"

http://www.runtime.org/

It is not free...but I think there is a trial version.

IMPORTANT: You must not use the drive where the original files were stored. The less you use the drive,
the more likely you will be able to restore your files.

Make sure you backup your files on an external drive or media...I learned this the hard way :(

Good Luck :D

Well Here are other apps to add to those lists:

Recuva, which is made from the guys who brought us Ccleaner: http://filehippo.com/download_recuva/

And...

PC Inspector File Recovery 4.0: http://filehippo.com/download_file_recovery/
Which recovers files, even when a header entry is no longer available. and supports various formats.

As I understand, both these softwares can also recover a file accidentally deleted from the Recycle Bin, so you're covered there.

Fast File Undeleter and Fast File Recovery are good -IF the device is seen as an external drive.

Other than that, you may get lucky and find it all in C:\recycler (a hidden, system file)
Just open a browser and type in c:\Recycler and you will get something that looks like this:
S-1-5-21-1645522239-2000478359-1417001333-1003
S-1-5-21-1645522239-2000478366-1417001333-1003
S-1-5-21-1645522239-2000478323-1417001333-1003
S-1-5-21-1645522239-2000478317-1417001333-1003

Which are blue or green and if you click on each you'll see files inside you (thought) were gone aeons ago

Also of interest is:
c:\documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp
c:\documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
c:\documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.ie5 (which is where MSoft hides your business - del all except index)

Cheers!

For the files you have just deleted from recycle bin, they are recoverable.
1. Please stop saving more files on the hard drive which your files are originally stored on.
2. Choose a tool to recover the files lost. Freeware Recuva and PhotoRec are good free choices.
Personally, I'm using this one: http://bit.ly/15YpBwz

You're about 4 years late, but thanks lol. I've been using something called "GetFilesBack" now which can actually recover entire partitions, even if they've been made to read as "RAW" data.

I have heard of it, I know nothing about it, Data Recovery is the one I see recommended the most. I had to use Data Recovery once many years ago on a family members machine and recovered quite a bit, but it was a purchased version.
Try the Data Recovery and see if it finds anything (what have you got to lose? as of now you have already lost data) I would try the trial version and see if it recovers anything before thinking about buying the full package.If it does not recover anything then I would not buy it. Maybe then you might try the Data Recovery trial and see if that recovers anything.
