Has anyone tried these to know how reliable they are? I need to recover about 1.4 TB of lost data, paperwork, documents, university backups, just years of work. I still cannot believe I did a quick format to the storage HDD...
Pandora and R-Undelete WILL recover accidentally deleted files, but if you are trying to recover data from a damaged hard drive, you are better off with @Active Partition Recovery Pro's "Boot ISO"
I install Pandora Recovery onto almost every machine I service.
R-Undelete recovers files even from a re-formatted disk.
