A place to discuss the ins and outs of data recovery, both logical and physical.


Please include filesystem and the make/model of your hard drive, flash drive, or phone.

REMEMBER: If what you are trying to recover is important GO TO A PRO! This includes your own data, or customer data. Odds are VERY HIGH that you will lose your data forever if you are working on this without expertise.
