I formatted my hard disk after copying all of my data to a larger drive. The new drive crashed and now I need to recover the data. I am using Windows 95 and formatted them using Win95. I have Norton for Win95 but I can't find Unformat. I know there is a DOS unformat but I am not sure if that's the way to go.

As long as you have formatted as FAT and not FAT32, you should be able to use Nortons unformat for DOS as long as you don't mind not having the long file names.

I guess it was the losing long file names that I didn't want,
