The BEST File Recovery Software (but not too expensive!)
OK, a little emergency going on here. What is the best file recovery software out there that won't cost the earth? I've not backed up an important folder that I've been working on and require it by tomorrow. Recuva shows the files there, but is pretty lousy at recovering them. Recommendations please.

GetDataBack is also ok at recovery.
I shouldn't suggest it, but as it's an emergency, you could obtain it from "the usual places" on the Hiren's bootCD, however that would obviously be frowned upon.

I have used this before to recover data from hard drives
File Scavenger download and review - file undelete/data recovery utility from SnapFiles it has a free trial as well

another vote here for @dwhyte85's suggestion of Testdisk, it's very good but you do need to specify some parameters for files to be recovered.

Data Recovery Software and Undelete from R-TT
Costs a bit, but not fortunes. Seems to work very well.

Thnaks everyone. I used Recuva as I had to leave it runnign overnight. A 1TB drive takes a LONG time on deep scan and I'm chuffed to bits to have got my document back
Now I have to go and sit on the sysadmin naughty step for practicing what I preach.
