    I deleted 98GB of files I have accidentally on an HDD. This is my secondary HDD, it is not currently use, nor have I used it since I deleted it. I did not format or anything. I was wondering, if that getbackdata software is any reliable? I want to cry right now....

    BTW, they are mostly large single file disc images of around 4gb each.

    Mhhn, my boyfriend accidently deleted most of my stuff from my 120gig drive some months ago and I cannot really recall which software we were using (we tried out a few) but somehow we were able to retrieve most of it, smaller files (under 100kb) ended up corrupted most of the time... mostly images, but big files were no problem at all.

    I know it sounds rather stupid but... make sure you don't save the files you are trying to retrieve on the same drive you retrieve them from, I tend to forget that alot and well, of course you won't really be able to retrieve the data that way.... XD

    It should be pretty reliable. I don't know in terms of deleting files though. I got back a lot of my files before using these programs.

    It was in a single folder called downloads, I also had another folder called "download" which contained 2gb of porn that I no longer needed, I wanted to delete that, but ended up deleting a folder that I had all my movies, games and etc. [​IMG]

    By movies you mean full length hardcore porn and games you mean sexually interactive games, right? [​IMG]

    I personally never deleted anything that I needed recovered later. See if you can find anything on download.com. I wish good luck in your journey.
