Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Preferably free, or avaliable from the usual places.
  2. "formatted" would mean theres nothing on there to recover
  3. How wrong you are there.

    Try "Undelete Plus" it worked for me when I deleted lots of photos.
  4. Actually, I have some pro software on my mem stick I think. A large defence company bought it, and I was given a copy. Will see if I still have it.
  5. Really? Pray tell as I have a 4 gig memory stick that I formatted and it has my lifes work on it. Well about 400 man hours of plagiarised and doctored work on it.
  6. Got it. UFS Explorer Pro. PM an address, I'll send you a copy.
  7. shhh
    grown ups talking about computery things, best just replug the x-box in eh?

    you something called data doctor recovery pen drive, allegedly?
    if only you could pm an email address to someone who could then send you the 3.5mb rar'd file
    but i'm sure you couldn't and wouldn't want to
    shame the full instructions weren't included too
    ah well...

    and beaten by royalty too :(
  8. Cheers.

    My Mother managed to delete the recent family holiday photo's we had with my Granadad, who died the other week. So its a pretty sentimental one.
  9. that software only works on your comp because the deletion process is differant, files are moved to recycle bin then on confirmation of deletion they magically dissapear or so it seems, the order is for the drive in use usually C: to no longer recognise the datas existance, however when you format a drive , any drive internal or external it uses a secure deltion process (either gutmann, NSA, or DOD5220.22-M) usually DOD5220.22-M give it a google
  10. A quick, or low level format won't delete everything. Far from it. Hence when we get rid of out restricted HDDs we use a specific bit of software that formats the discs x amount of time to ensure no data recovery is possible.
  11. Bollox does it. You would have to use DBan or such like for that.
  12. Pm'd PA

  14. We use DBan
