    I've been beaten !!

    I've been well and truly beaten - PC to recover a single .xls spreadsheet that was deleted [ the entire folder ] yesterday - PC is Vista Ultimate on a Mirror Raid setup.
    I have tried so many recovery programs and yet it still refuses to locate the file.
    I have recovered data from formatted drives before and pictures from memory sticks, portable hard drives etc etc - never had a problem - but it seems now at last I've been beaten !!
    Even GetDataBack is not showing the file which for me says it all.
    I don't like being beaten !!

    Running it now - thanks - its taking quite a while to build the tree - I'll let it go for a few hours whilst I'll potter around and install some new kit.

    silly question, are you SURE it was THAT machine it was saved onto and not a different machine or onto a shared folder?

    Chances are if you've tried multiple recovery applications, the data is no longer there as it has been overwritten by something else.

    As far as I am aware, RAID1 should be no different to recovering data as with a single drive setup.
