Top Free Data Recovery Software
In my experience, accidentally deleting or after formatting hard disk important files or forgetting to backup important files before formatting are quite often. At first when i lost my data in a External Hard-drive crash i didn’t know how to restore my data. But recently i came across these bunch of free software’s which can restore data from crashed HDD and flash drives.
When recovering data from accidental deletion, there are some rules to follow.
1. Stop using the hard drive you want to recover as main hard drive (Windows has disk and registry activity in background. Don’t believe? Run RegMon, FileMon and DiskMon)
2. Do not install the data recovery software on the hard drive that you want to recover.
