file undelete and data recovery utility File Scavenger is a Windows file undelete and data recovery utility that can recover files that were damaged by virus or accidentally deleted from Windows Explorer, the Recycled Bin, command line window, or a network share along with original folder names and file Create and Modified dates. File Scavenger supports reformatted volumes or broken hardware/software RAID volumes as well as file compression, dynamic disks, alternate data streams, sparse files, Unicode file names and more. The program offers 3 different search modes, one for quick access to recently deleted files, one for exhaustive search and also a defunct volume search that can even recover files from compromised striped and RAID volumes. We tested the File Scavenger on a machine that was reformatted a few days earlier, and successfully recovered some of the files, old desktop shortcuts and more. File Scavenger can optionally be installed or used in portable mode. Supports NTFS, FAT/FAT32, Ext3, Ext4, UFS1, UFS2, HFS+, HFSX and XFS file systems. Copyright

Trial Limitations: Demo version can only recover files smaller than 64 KB.

I always use File Scavenger first! 5 stars by Banned_User Feb 18, 2013
I'm PC repair tech with over 9 years experience in fixing desktops and laptops for the public. I have performed data recovery on drives that had issues from minor corruption to head crashes to complete catastrophic failures. I have tested almost every data recovery program on the market today. File Scavenger is always the one I use first. There are other much more expensive programs that work better for certain specific problems but I rarely use them because File Scavenger recovers the files 95 percent of the time. If the drive spins then FS will get the data off it almost every time. I have had a professional license for this program for over 5 years and it's worth every penny. I have recovered pictures, financial data, business contacts, tax files, payroll data, and lots more for my customers. FS has saved them tens of thousands of dollars by recovering the files without having to send the drive off to a clean room for dissection and put quite a bit of money in my pocket in the process. There isn't another program out there that recovers files with the consistency and accuracy of FS from drives with so many different problems. A little advice, whatever your PC problem is don't take it to "A big Box Store"(I'm sure you know which one I mean) They don't have true techs, they have salesman that know very little about computers that pose as techs. I've seen them take advantage of so many trusting people. They lie to the customer and overcharge just to sell them a new computer show Review details
It works brilliantly 5 stars by TonyWilkins Oct 11, 2010 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I have used a few recovery programs but this is brilliant. If its possible you will find it with this and its recovered as a folder tree. show Review details
Great tool, great price!!! 4 stars by ITguy1 Aug 27, 2010
We use this tool allot to recover data for our clients. In most cases the drives suffer from some time of partition corruption and File Scavenger can handle this beautifully. In the few cases that we can not recover the data via File Scavenger we send it out to in-lab services. However, usually the software can handle the case well. show Review details
