Data recovery programs???

Anyone know of any cheap/free data recovery programs for a hard drive? I had almost 40 GB of data on a hard drive and I don't know how I lost it, but I know it's not gone and I don't want to pay a company to get it back, cause it's not that important, but if there's a cheap alternative, I would love to try. Thanks.

I don't know of a cheap one but OnTrack Easy Recovery is the best I have use so far. This program is awesome.

Thanks. I downloaded a trial version of the program on the internet and it seems to be doing the trick. Thanks for the suggestion.

You can download the trial version from Download.com.

It also says that the software costs $489 to buy.

You don't need the professional edition, but the standard version is not cheap either @ $199

Yeah, so I used the trial version to scan the drive and found all the files there, however, you need a real version of the software in order to transfer the files over to a good hard drive. So right now I can only view some of the files. Thanks for the help, but I don't think I'll be shelling out $200 for this stuff. It's really good software, but it's not that necessary.
