    Hi guys,
    well heres the story: My sister brought me a computer to fix for her friend who owns a restaurant. So all i did was an easy fix formatted the hard drive and installed windows. Well i brought it back to the owner and she is very sad that i have deleted all the files on the computer. If i knew she wanted to recover the data i would have installed the hard drive into my computer and backed it up for her but i didn't know.
    Heres the problem: She had a lot of records stored on the computer she needs and I was wondering if there was a way to restore some of her data that i formatted? I am willing to buy the software because i am getting more ppl who ask me to fix their computer. I know that since i installed windows on it, that it is impossible to recover all the formatted data but I think if i just get some she will be happy. I thank you for any help. Thank you.

    I've used Easy Recovery Pro version 6 in the past.... I don't have a link, but I'm sure a quick Google search will hook you up! Good Luck!

    I like EasyRecovery too. We recovered almost all the data on a reformatted harddrive using their software. I'm not sure how much Pro costs, but they have a number of different tools for different prices. The website is:
