Have you looked at Recuva?  It has a very good reputation.

(I tend to back up well, so I have not had a need to try).

Test that it can find your deleted file(s) with the free demo, then pay to recover those file(s)

Don't want any points. Just want to confirm that GetDataBack is your your best choice.

Well once you delete the folder, and it's emptied from the trash...your best method of recovering deleted folder(s) it to immediately turn off the computer and attach the hard drive to another computer that has the data recovery software installed on it.

The longer you leave the computer running, and using whatever programs you are using while you figure out what is the best software to use...increases the chance of you not being able to recover any deleted data off of the hard drive...this is even more true if you install the data recovery software onto the hard drive where you deleted the folders...which is why you will usually see the warning...Do Not install this software onto the drive that has the data you want to recover.

If this is a server, then you might be able to restore from an auto backup of the folder if you have the server configured that way.

Agree,if you want that data back,take that machine out of production now!

You run the risk of the deleted files being written over and then your chances for recovery go way down hill.

is this a local drive, or a network drive?  Quite different approaches needed!
