So, I deleted 19 photos off my USB stick that I shouldn’t have, it was one of those “oh crap!!!” moments. As soon as I deleted the files, waahhhhhhhhhhhh.
Seemed like a good opportunity to check out the programs I have listed in 10 free programs to recover deleted files. I’d be interested if you have any other recommendations. Here are the results of 3 programs I tried with Windows XP:
The “wizard mode” would be a boon for novice users, and I guess for those people who just suffered a “oh crap!!!” moment. Found 18 photos in normal mode (0.23 seconds), and 19 photos in “deep scan” mode (211 seconds). I’d rate this as a solid “Pass”.
Only 7 more programs to test.
