Anyone know any good free data recovery packages?

I have promised a mate at work that I would try and recover some photos from a memory card for her.

Problem is the only recovery software I can find are trials and need to be activated and I cant for the life in me find a serial number anywhere.

Anyone got any tips? Thanks in advance.

Thanks ST, just tried this and for some reason it ain't picking up any files on the memory card, the trial of another one i downloaded found about 200 pics? Strange.

Heat and rep added, any more anyone? :thumbsup:

It wont do anything with the memory card, as soon as you click analyze it starts and stops immediately as though the memory card is empty.

Recuva - from Piriform, who also make excellent CCleaner utility.

easy to use

brilliant.

Got me out of a hole with photos I accidentally deleted on a SD card recently. Got everything back, apart from one film clip.

Worth keeping on your computer in case you ever have a problem from accidentally deleting files.
