Quick question.  Does anyone know how to recover deleted files from an Iomega REV drive.  I have tried using Ontrack's EasyRecovery software but that's no use as it does not scan the REV drive.  Any other ideas?

Thanks

Try getdataback. The trial is free and will show you if it can find any data. If not, no harm done, If it does find data, then register it to copy the data off.

he's already tried a "software" solution, it' doesnt work.  Next step is professional recovery.

He's tried one software solution. I tried scanning a rev with getdataback and it does scan rev's, so that software may work. If one program doesn't work that doesn't mean no software will work, and getdataback happens to be the recovery software...

I did try getdataback as well but it was unable to scan the REV drive properly.  When it got to a certain point, it just returned loads of errors; it does this with all the REV disks that I've got.  I think I'm going to have to try Ontrack's professional service.

Thanks anyway.
