Hi, we are looking for an apps that can recover deleted files from a hard drive.  The drive is fairly new; only 10% of drive being used.  The drive has not been used much after deletion.  Basically the data trying to recover has been previously moved to a new location within the drive and subsequently deleted.  We are looking for Windows 8, free apps if possible.

Thank you in advance.

Attach drive as a slave to another machine.  Otherwise anything you install may overwrite your missing data.

Free app  Recuva https://www.piriform.com/recuva

Commercial app  GetDataBack https://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm  (free to try, if it sees your files pay for the upgrade and recover them).
