can anyone recommend any file/data recovery apps for NTFS formatted USB sticks, to recovery user data that has been accidentally deleted. There seems an awful lot of choice, but I'd rather test out any freebies before committing to a paid solution. Anything which could recovery data / files from an image of a USB stick taken using something like FTK Imager  as well would be most interesting.

It's free up to 2GB.

Software solution does not guarantee you the fire recovery. Binary dump your key before anything.
Give a try to PhotoRec (https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec). It's not only for photos .

it shows the recoverable files, for free - you only pay for storing them
and it's very easy to use
