    i was moving some stuff around on my media server and it was late at night...i made a bad decision of deleting a whole folder of .tivo files (about 120gbs worth) without making sure i had a backup of it

    i freaked out and tried to undo it and searched for the recycler folder etc. i made another mistake by giving up and continuing to copy data to the deleted files drive. i got ahold of get data back for ntfs, ran it for a couple of hours and managed to restore 95% of my files.

    i will no longer mess with my server late at night, pretty cool how it also showed me some stuff that i thought was long long gone on the drive

    Definitely a cool program. I lost a hardrive at work with and GetDataBack restored most of the files.

    it should be noted that the software will only work well if the drive can still be accessed. if your hard drive won't show up under bios and is clicking, your fucked

    I made my company buy it, after I stole it and it worked.
