A client of mine recently accidently formatted his 20 gig drive. He only ran format for a few seconds, but it was enough that he cannot find some of his much needed files. I think the FAT tables were wiped out. He unfortunately has already reinstalled windows on the drive, but he has not installed much.
He has used a trial program to test and see if he can recover some of the data that he's looking for, but he's not sure that all of the data is there. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with data recovery and could maybe recommend some software or a company that would be good for recovering his data. Time isn't of the utmost importance, so he could ship the drive to a company for recovery.
I am assuming you are in the US, But if I am wrong, and you are in Australia, then there are very good companies in Sydney that do data recovery on corrupted hdd's, I would imagine that there would be similar companies where you are
