Had a job to recover pictures from a 4GB flash drive last week and thought the following results comparison might be of interest:
- Recuva undeleted 197 pictures, of which 177 were readable (not "X"ed out)
- GetDataBack FAT recovered 221 usable pictures, plus some partial images
- PhotoRec (free for private and commercial use!) recovered 354 good images!
PhotoRec also recovers other file types and was pretty fast. I'm definitely going to experiment with using it in addition to my other recovery programs in the future. Surprising how it was so successful at recovering pictures that were "broken" or incomplete when recovered using the other programs.
