recovery of corrupted files

I have had to recover a laptop that had a system crash, and in doing so had to re-install XP. I did not format or fdisk, but need a product that can search for missing files. I suspect there is a mis-tagged or corrupt .pst file. I think in the past I have seen a product similar to undelete or similar that can list/retrieve files that ordinarily in browser cannot be seen.

2. You may need to unhide hidden files to see them. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

3. You may need to take ownership of folders and files to access them.

Hope this helps!
