    Hey.
    I forgot the name of the software I used in the past to get data back.

    Recently I deleted loads of things from my rarely used german version toshiba satellite.
    Didnt formatted the harddrive.
    I deleted a folder, containing my old pics and homemade videos.

    Which programm should I use to get the data back?

    I have an external drive wher I can install the software and get data back from the laptops harddrive.
    (it would be more than to much though... and my external drive is only 500 gigs, 300 filled with data.)

    Thanks

    Nope just install it on your main partition like all other programs. Then make it search for data on your external.

    I've heard good things about Recuva by Piriform.

    You can get a portable version of it too.
