GetDataBack from Runtime Software is one of the best data recovery applications currently around. From hard disk drives to removable media such as flash drives, memory cards and iPods this software can recover lost data from a wide range of storage devices. It can also help you with accidental fdisk executions, partition table corruption, file system corruption and a lot of other problematic scenarios related to data storage.

GetDataBack is pretty easy to use and if you use it correctly you can usually get good results. The key rule is not to install GetDataBack on the drive you are experiencing problems with. If possible, install the software on a problem free machine, attach the drive with errors as a slave and then run it. 

Developer Description

GetDataBack will recover your data if the hard drive's partition table, boot record, FAT/MTF or root directory are lost or damaged, data was lost due to a virus attack, the drive was formatted, fdisk has been run, a power failure has caused a system crash, files were lost due to a software failure, files were accidentally deleted. GetDataBack for NTFS can recover your data even in the situation when the drive is no longer recognized by Windows. It can likewise be used even if all directory information - not just the root directory- is missing. Advanced algorithms will make sure that all directories and sub directories are put together as they were, and that long file names are reconstructed correctly.  This software is read-only, meaning the program will never attempt to write to the drive you are about to recover. Please make sure to read the safety instructions. It enables the regular user to conduct his own data recovery by guiding him through five easy to understand steps, thus gives the advanced user the possibility to interfere with the recovery and improve the results, by examining the scan log, the file system details, file and directory information, by selecting the sector range to be scanned, by choosing excessive search for file systems or search for lost files, by calling Runtime's DiskExplorer.
