Greetings wise wizards of EE:
I'm helping out a friend who has a Dell PC Windows XP that has been recently reformatted; she didn't take the precaution of backing up her data before the reformat, and now wants to recover a moderate amount of data that is "lost", including a great deal of music files. She doesn't want to pay for commercial data recovery company services, but is willing to take the chance with data recovery software, but I have never used these tools before.
My question are:
What are the most reliable titles for data recovery software, and how do they work?
She will gladly pay for a title, if it is reliable.
Many thanks in advance,
