The software suggested here seems to be good. But, I am in search of software that can recover RAW partitions... One of the software that I found is Remo Recover.. It really seems to be promising..

I've installed this with no problem, but i can't tell if the activation worked as it still asks me to register?

Question about recovering text that is not in a file: I unintentionally deleted a large block of text from a file and then saved the file. When I realized what had happened, I stopped using that computer in the hope that I could find the deleted text. I am using another one until I recover the text, if possible. Is there a program that would allow me to read text in unallocated parts of the hard drive, such as a Linux-based program that I could put on a flash drive?

@Karl Recover data from Bitlocker encrypted drive, M3 Bitlocker Recovery is the best choice.

Well it just so happens my external hard drive became corrupted and unreadable last Friday. I've tried no less than 8 programs and the only ones that were able to find my lost data are not "true" freeware. One program called "eSupport Undelete Plus" lets you spend hours scanning your disk, then when you click on "restore" a popup tells you to register and pay (a-holes!).
So I will most definitely be downloading this give-away!!!

Karl, please refer to a USB that has not been used as unused not useless.

Gave it a try and it worked on a flash drive that I knew had been re-formatted. It recovered lots of files that were organised into file types. Of the recovered files, I would guess that 85% or more were recovered completely. Others couldn't be opened because they were corrupt in some way.
It is a fairly small program too, occupying only 5.25 Mb so no problem keeping it. Had I realised, I would probably have installed it on my primary SSD drive but it works well from one of my IDE drives and loads up quickly.
In summary, well worth keeping even if you have other recovery software as this one might just recover what others can't.

Uninstalled the previous Aidfile Recovery version 3.60.
Did not install this new version 3.66.
This is not to say that this software is good or bad.

Too many recovery freeware or giveaway software already. Want to cut down on the number of recovery software in the hard drive.

Oops! My bad. Sorry! You are right, I did not see this search. Must be Monday morning - the only excuse. Thank you for pointing my error.

Installed and registered without any problems, on opening an interface that was slightly rough around the edges in that the font on the buttons could have been a lot better.
Did a test on an eight gig SD card using full scan; this card is from a video camera which creates its own filenames, they have the format IMAG0000.AVI so deleted files can have the same name as those are not deleted.
The results of the scan showed files that were not deleted amongst the few it found that were deleted, for example it found IMAG0003.AVI of the same size as the undeleted IMAG0003.AVI, yet using HDD Recovery Pro found the same IMAG0003.AVI file but the deleted version of a different size.
HDD Recovery Pro found many files that this program failed to find but then it is twice the price.

From what I have seen it appears that it is necessary to pay for a top end recovery program if you really need to get your files back, something like HDD Recovery Pro, and bear in mind that it will recover ANY file type.

@1 Karl : Is it possible that you are mistaken?
The uppermost Screenshot of the software, displayed here above, clearly shows the selectable options for various image formats.

Installed on Windows 8.1 64. I had to choose "run anyway" and override the PC Protected screen. I connected a 500 GB external drive. Nothing was fast. Some of the options say "quick," but nothing was quick. So, I stopped the scan to see the progress, and some files from years ago were listed. This drive has been in use, but those files deleted years ago still were not overwritten. They were not in any recycle bin. It recovered those files. Some were corrupt, but some were usable. So, I started a full recovery to see what it will do. It's been a while and still only at 4%. But to see usable files deleted years ago, even when interrupting the scan, indicates that it could be beneficial software to have.

Why are people voting this down ? Currently Trying it on a USB stick I mistakenly formatted and need lots from it m- it's at 16% and found LOTS. I hope I can get certain serials back I lost ("10 strike search my discs" for instance - the company is completely unhelpful so far)

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name&address.

A small window opens, can be resized to full screen.

I formatted an USB stick, which is not in use for test purposes.
The software could not recover a single file. This was MY fault! The USB stick was encrypted with Bitlocker. After formatting Windows was not able to disable the Bitlocker. Of course - and therefor the software could not understand, what was written. Think about this problem, using Bitlocker or any other encryption system.

Now I copied some files to the now useless USB Stick, formatted again and run the software. If it is only "Quick Formatted" it scans the USB drives and finds a lot of entries. You can preview the found files in Text, HEX or image format.

You can save the scan info for a later diagnosis. Unfortunately you cannot search the entries for file name or other attributes.

You check in the tree view on the left side, the files, you want to recover. With the "start" recover you save the files in a defined directory.

In my short test, the software does, what it claims. Missing the ability to search for specific files (all .jpg for example)

I have already recovery software, which I never use up to now.
